Thanks for getting back to me. The house looks amazing. We are doing a major reno on a westcoast contemporary in British Columbia. Ripping the roof off and changing much more to the style you built here. Your house was the main inspiration for the design. Did you tie the trusses into a flush beam above the windows in the garage? Thanks Bruce

More companies are making this commercial style door for residential application. I have one and it's the coolest in the neighborhood. Clopay makes one, Wayne Dalton, Amarr. Just google "aluminum garage door" and you'll find options. It is not inexpensive -- mine approached $5K installed but it makes a statement. Be mindful the more translucent options allow neighbors to know if your vehicle is parked inside or not. It IS nice to have all the natural light from the translucent panels but you can pick from a variety of colors and levels of opaqueness.

a custom cut tongue and groove - theres a 1.5" reveal cut into it

It is absolutely beautiful! You do wonderful work. We are building new in Minnesota & our architect designed tongue & groove into the home, however, our builder is concerned with the weather (expanding/shrinking) that we will experience rotting underneath. Any thoughts or suggestions? Ours does not have the 1.5" reveal cut.
Thanks!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Curb Appeal Begs Your Attention
Color and CompositionEarth tones or bright hues, symmetrical or asymmetrical, two dimensional or three dimensional, opaque or transparent are design elements that communicate a story about your home. If you want a feeling of formality, then a symmetrical composition is your likely desire. If you're looking for more of a relaxed and casual feel, than perhaps it's asymmetry that you want. And color plays a huge role in the overall appeal of your home. Will it be calming and tied to the earth in shades of brown and green, or will it be bold and perhaps abstract in bright yellows and reds?
