Hi stevenn2,
The step lights appear to be similar to the Kichler Brick Landscape Lights (SKU 15773AZT).

You can find them on National Builder Supply:

I hope that helps!

Could you please tell me the color of the house and trim? I'd like to add a swatch to the other swatches I have painted on the side of my house right now :-)

KILZ Brands
Hello Natalie!

Because it was a Sherwin Williams coating that is yellowing, it would be hard for us to diagnose exactly what happened. However, there have been cases when tannins from bleeding woods such as cedar would bleed through the topcoat and cause it to yellow. The solution for this would be to seal the entire surface with an oil-based primer such as our Kilz Complete, and then apply a topcoat of your choosing. This should seal in the tannins and keep the topcoat from yellowing. But, for more detailed, precise assistance with the Sherwin Williams topcoat, we would recommend contacting Sherwin Williams.

We hope this helps!

We are considering replicating this beautiful house's colors on the house we are building right now. We are using LP Smartside. What color is the siding and shingles on this (color code, manufacturere, etc. to match)? We are going with Eagle windows (black aluminum). Thanks.

Try Lantern & Scroll I was there a few weeks ago and they had very similar ones. Reasonably priced too! Maybe $350. Hope that helps. Cheers!

Hi keblakely,
The hanging light looks very similar to the Trans Globe Coastal 2 - Light Hanging Lantern (SKU 45633WB).

The light can be found on National Builder Supply (free shipping!):

I hope this helps!

Does the top step (platform) extend a little beyond the front of the garage? - I have a similar entrance where the garage is next to the walkway and stoop and extends forward of the house. I am trying to figure out if the top step should extended beyond the garage. I like the idea of the plant hiding the side of the step by the garage. Thank you.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This California home combines several architectural styles, and the front porch gives it a dose of All-American style.
Beth Woodson and Kristy Woodson Harvey added this to How to Pick a Mailbox That Really Delivers
First things first: Before you get excited about moving your street-side box to the front porch, make sure you contact the U.S. Postal Service. You may be able to move at will, but your mailbox needs permission.
A solitary flag on a porch post is a simple and classic look for any house.
Laura Gaskill added this to July Checklist for a Smooth-Running Home
12. Boost your home's Fourth of July curb appeal. Whether or not your house is on the parade route, it feels good to freshen up porch plantings, trim hedges and hang those flags.Tell us: Do you decorate for the Fourth of July? What's on your home to-do list this month? Join the discussion below!
