Hi,
The operable windows are in-swinging hoppers and they are 2'-0" tall and 3' - 0" wide.
Thanks for the question.

Hi -
The doors and windows on this project are all aluminum clad wood units by Marvin. They come with the aluminum already painted. Marvin, like many manufacturers, has many standard colors, and then one can always have a custom color applied as well. The interior finish can be primed and or bare wood of various species with a sealer. These came primed.
Thanks for the question.

Hi -
I am not sure I understand this question - if what you are asking is where is this house located, the answer is in Forestville, California.
Thanks,
Cathy

What is the siding material (including finish) and the name of the colors for the door and windows? Thanks.

Cathy Schwabe Architecture
Hi-
the siding is western red cedar -- board and batten ( 2 x 2's over 1 x 8's) with a Cabot Transparent Clear Stain Sealer --
The windows are Marvin -- aluminum clad - I am pretty sure it is one of their standard colors -- bronze.
The painted wood door -- is a color close to the Marvin clad color -- Wineberry.
Hope this helps,
Cathy

I think back and forth would be best, but we would need to know what you charge. Also we are not quite ready to build just yet.

And or email me at cschwabe@earthlink.net and I will email you back.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Some designs incorporate the vernacular in both form and materials, as exemplified by these final two examples. The regional modernism of Northern California may embrace flat roofs and stucco walls, but this small studio is covered in wood siding and capped by a sloping roof.
Schwabe nestled the studio into the hillside above the existing two-bedroom cabin. "I was inspired by many things, but the exterior's form was inspired by local Sonoma barns because of their simplicity and practicality," says Schwabe. The studio's small size means a reduced carbon footprint, and Schwabe sited and shaped it to make the most of natural light and ventilation.
Cathy Schwabe designed this versatile cabin in Northern California to serve as a photography studio, a spot for writers' retreats and a dining room (indoors or out) for large gatherings of family and friends.
Laura Gaskill added this to How to Wash Your House
Get prepared to pressure wash. If you own your home and plan to use a pressure washer at least once each year, it could be worth it to buy your own. They are not cheap ... but they are not cheap to rent, either. If you cannot reach the upper floors of your home on a ladder, consider hiring a pro to do the job. If you are doing it yourself, follow these steps:Soap or no soap? Water alone is enough to get most exteriors clean. If you have mold or mildew, use a specialty house cleaner designed to kill mildew in the pressure washer's detergent compartment.Choose the right nozzle. Pressure washer nozzles are measured in degrees — those that shoot water in a very narrow area have the strongest spray (zero is the strongest) and should be used very cautiously. For most homes a nozzle with a 40-degree spray should suffice, so start there and work your way down to a 25-degree nozzle if necessary.Secure windows, doors and pets. Make sure dogs (who could be curious about the spray) and children are inside, and close all the windows and doors before getting started. Also put on a pair of safety goggles to protect your eyes from dirt and debris.

"When to pressure wash. Vinyl or wood siding, or a hybrid material, is typically strong enough to withstand pressure washing. But before you head to the home improvement store, consider just how dirty your house is. It's best to start with the lightest, gentlest cleaning method that is effective and work your way up from there. Don't reach for the pressure washer unless you have some serious grime to contend with — a light layer of dirt and road dust can be easily cleaned using a plain old garden hose. If your home has sturdy siding and needs more power than a garden hose can muster, a pressure washer can be heaven sent."
