Good Morning Andrea, I have a siding question for you. - First off let me begin by telling you this house is absolutely stunning. The detail in the exterior is amazing. I cannot even imagine the inside detail. Can you please tell me the clapboard siding widths used to set this contrast off. The first floor of the house looks like 6" but that would mean the second floor would be around 3" widths. Or am I totally wrong and it's 8" and 4". This is an amazing job and the owners are very fortunate to have found you to give you them their dream home.

Thank you!

The widths are 4" on the top floor and 7" on the main level.

Great house! Wondering if you could tell me what material was used for the railing and screen on the decks?

Who is the maker of the windows? I am currently working on a project and thinking about using Kolbe windows for this modern look...

It's premium western red cedar nominal lumber, and I presume the GC got it from one of our local lumbar yards.

The stain color was a custom blend, but Kelly's suggestion would be a good starting point.

Hi Andrea, how was the panel finished inbetween the reveals? Is that caulking or is there a reveal system that is the same colour as the panel? It's a nice finish that under-emphasizes the reveal.
