Whole-house remodel: Magical Transformation

The 1930s-era Tudor home fit right into its historic neighborhood, but the family couldn't fit all it needed for this decade inside—a larger kitchen, a functional dining room, a home office, energy efficiency.

is the Bow Window on the lower right level custom built or a unit?

The window was a custom design - you can see a before photo of the home on our question feed. Thanks for asking!

I do not have notes on the exact paint colors. I recommend taking the picture to your local paint store and they can help you to match it

The exterior finish is a combination of brick, stucco, cedar, slate roofing, and copper accents. We found this combination of materials created an interesting design. What do you think?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
The paint color of the brick is a custom mix to match the existing brick that was on the home. The brick on the second floor on the upper right corner of the home is unpainted.

The shingles are a gray Spanish slate and the brick was painted a custom color to match the existing color of the home.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Roots of Style: The Indelible Charm of American Tudors
Washington, D.C. Variations of Tudor details distinguish this cozy D.C.-area example. Lacking the typical forward-facing gable, the hip roof helps to emphasize the splendid brick patterns set in half timber on the primary second-level elevation. Notice also that it slightly overhangs the lower level, detailed with wood brackets. A neutral paint color and gray slate roof unify the variations in window shapes and sizes and dormer configurations.
