What kind of door is that? - I really like the door! Who makes it?

I believe this is a fiberglass / insulated door. Therma-tru "Smooth-Star".. and I recommend "flush-glaze" with no muntins (grids)..., they just don't look right on fiberglass doors because of the necessary raised moulding transition... The owners added a dog door on this one... - Kenny

I'm pretty sure the insulation is at the ceiling level. We used "attic" trusses with raised heels, and round/screened eave ventilation in the blocking between rafters... Hope that answers your question...? - Thanks - Kenny Craft

It's a little hard to say without seeing the house, but I'd say this is a versatile color scheme that would look good on a one story home. - Kenny

momoffiddlegirl...., sorry for the delay in getting back to your questions... I appreciate your kind words. I tracked down the exterior colors that were used. It's two colors, Anchor Paint 7790 (Aged Olive) below the "beltline", and 7791 (Retro Avocado) above the "beltline". The trim is white (not sure exact callout) and the window sashes are black (clad color per manufacturer). I'll work on researching the colors on the other houses you asked about also...

What Houzz contributors are saying:

ds design studio added this to Olive Green: Sophisticated or Drab?
Two shades of olive green paired with crisp white trim create a cheerful home exterior.
Becky Harris added this to Project Tour: New Urbanism in Colorado
The homes were originally required to be Built Green Colorado Certified; while that company no longer exists, South Main is still following the spirit of the original checklist while searching for an appropriate third-party certifier. Among the green elements they use: spray-foam insulation, metal roofs where appropriate, energy-efficient windows, Energy Star appliances, low-VOC products, and floors of reclaimed or renewable materials such as bamboo and cork.
Lisa Frederick added this to Feast on Farm-Fresh Color
What's better than one avocado? Two. The double-tone paint treatment on this house is so fun and whimsical. If these were my neighbors, I'd invite them over — they have to be interesting people.
Yellow-green is a lighthearted color and a fun choice for a home's exterior. This color will add a whimsical touch to the neighborhood.Suggested paint picks: Corn Husk Green and Grape Leaves, Behr
Danyelle Mathews added this to Ombré Makes the Grade at Home
Painting the exterior of a house a couple of different shades may not work for everyone, but the subtle ombré adds dimension and charm to this home with wood siding.
Samantha Schoech added this to Color Guide: How to Work With Green
Shades of olive and avocado give this architecturally basic house a lot of oomph.
Samantha Schoech added this to 18 Home Exteriors Gone Wild With Color
Here is another example of how using different tones of the same color can add interest and keep the house from looking like a block of green.
