The chimney is original stone, the other stone is new to finish or alteration to new stone.

Espinoza Stone Inc.
The new stone is commonly known as Brown Flagstone/Builders Stone in the Austin Area. Different companies put different marketing names on the same stone, but most people know it as Brown Flagstone/Builders Stone

Can you tell me what type of metal roof you used?

Kelly Haegglund
Thank you. I really like this house! I have used standing seam galvalume roofs in the past but at great expense. Do you have any experience with the type of metal roof that uses surface screws to attach it? I can't tell which type of roof you used here. My contractor is worried about potential leaking with surface fasteners.

We used a standing seam galvalume metal roof. Exposed fasteners over time could fail and cause some leaking. Standing seam is more expensive but looks sleeker and is less likely to fail.

Thanks! We chose exactly the same for our master bathroom cabinets but they said they couldn't go over 48", and I'm trying to find an option that will work well with it for a very tall cabinet. You have some tall sections that are kind of what I need. your design. Thanks for sharing.

What are the exterior paint colors?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The exterior palette of this cottage was completely inspired by the colors found in the stone features. Warm white acts as an offsetting backdrop to the green-brown window trim and rust-orange door. In small doses and with a light background, the '70s-like hues feel anything but dated.
Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Roots of Style: Midcentury Styles Respond to Modern Life
Minimalist Traditional These first three houses resemble their predecessors mostly in a few details or in form, but are less specific in their articulation. Though this first house was built in the 1930s, it could easily be compared to many vernacular examples across the country. Notice the double-hung windows, characteristic of colonial revival yet lacking muntins (which divide the window panes into smaller segments). It also has a lower side-gabled roof pitch, but there is a steeper forward-facing gable with an extension comprising the entrance, a trait found in American Tudor homes.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to 8 Benefits of Cottage Living
