Where do you get your columns from and what size are these?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
FGY Architects
The columns were custom designed by FGY. I believe they are 5'-0" tall and 1'-4" square at the base which tapers ever so slightly to the top. - FGY

Can you give me the name of the manufacturer of the front door please.

It was custom made for us. It is 2 1/4" thick with a different paneling configuration in the interior. the best way to replicate the door would be to show this to a local custom shop.

I am not sure I have record of the color, but can check my notes if you wish. My work e-mail is cath@ fgy-arch.com . The paint was a custom color.

The Shabby Nest
Valspar's Lyndhurst Castle Sand is similar to the color of the siding, and try Valspar's Clean White for a similar trim color.

The siding stain is made by Cabot and is called Spanish Moss.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Rachel Grace added this to Renovation Detail: The Knee Brace
This home boasts many Craftsman characteristics, such as a knee wall railing, exposed rafters, square tapered columns and, of course, knee braces aplenty.
This home carried the color from the trim onto the fence. White fences are a classic choice and create a fresh, inviting appeal.

I like the darker door color on this one, and how the downspouts aren't in white. It helps maintain more horizontal separation on the house, pulling the eye left & right instead of up & down - our house is already tall enough!

This could actually be a good fence option. Clean across the top, white (so it matches the house well and doesn't conflict with wood coloring inside). I don't like the gate though. Should be straight across the top.
