Hi there. We built this home about 12 years ago, so I do not recall the exact name of stone or mortar color. Thanks for your interest, and good luck with your new home!

Novakiki... You're correct that this home is in Wayzata Bay which is on the NE side of the lake... However, the home was built 12 years ago... Definitely not in 1959 :-)

Because I live in Texas, I don't know how practical it would be for me to use your firm, as much as I would love to. If you could tell me one thing, is that house a full 2 stories? From the picture it looks like it might be 1 3/4. Of course, I can't see the back. Do you have any pictures of the back of the house? I really appreciate your help! I just love your design! It's absolutely beautiful! Happy New Year to you, too! Thanks again!
