Beautiful trim. - Hi, Did you use Pvc, wood, or fiber-cement trim? How did you make the drip cap on the skirtboard? Thank you.

If I recall correctly, most of the trim (and siding) is fiber cement. The porch columns/railings, etc.. are wood. The Rafters are wood. One special consideration I would mention is that when using fiber cement.., I highly recommend using the "smooth" face option. Most manufacturers off the "wood grain".., but in my opinion it is "trying too hard", and if you actually look at "real" wood siding or trim.., it's flat... So fiber cement can be nice and "authentic" in appearance.., but only if you avoid the "fakey" wood grain...! Same goes for doors, and other products., but that's a different topic.. - The drip cap is just a 1x2 trim member, with slight slope. Thanks, Kenny

The house is built on a crawlspace, and the HVAC system and water heater is in the crawlspace. It's not your typical crawlspace though, it's unvented, insulated (with ICF foundation) and conditioned.., which also minimizes insulation requirements for ductwork. To be honest I don't recall where the electrical panel is, but typically in a closet or hallway, in as subtle location as possible. - Kenny

I'm thinking full basement with outside entrance would work pretty good.

Half Storey - I see you didn't include a third floor plan. Is there a half storey above the second floor?

Based on the width of the house (18'-0"), and the pitch of the roof (12:12), the space above the second story really isn't large enough to be habitable space. However, "attic" trusses were used, so there is at least a fair amount of functional attic storage space. Thanks, Kenny

Windows - What brand of windows were used and what porch railing was used. Thanks.

Kenny Craft, CNU LEED AP
The windows are Jeld-wen Ex-siteline series (formally Norco). They are alluminum clad wood windows with Simulated Divided lites. One important point to note, is that the frame color is different than the sash color. Frame color is coordinated with the trim/casing color so that sash is distinct. Also, and important point to note, the window is recessed approx. 1", so the casing/trim overlaps the otherwise projecting window frame... The railings are not any particular "system", but just "stick built", 1x4 cap, double 1x4 upper rails sandwiching 2x2's at 4" o.c. w/ a 2x6 bottom rail (could use 2x8 or 2x10) - In this case, the bottom rail is cut w/ a sloping point at the top, and the pickets have an inverse point, so they notch onto the bottom rail. Hope that helps... - Kenny

Hi Kenny- What color paints are used on the green and white house? I see there are three colors- a green, a white and a dark blue inside of the windows. We have a 104 year old victorian home that we completely re-did and we are about to start painting the outside. From the start, I knew I wanted a green home but its hard when you are dealing with that much space and picking the right shade of green. Thank you Allie
