These are natural cedar shingles with a semi-transparent stain finish. See Cabotstain.com

Gambrel roof plus dog house dormers? - I have a 1897 dutch colonial revival home with gambrel roof, shed dormers and shed porch. Is it inappropriate, architectually speaking, to convert the dormers to dog house? Must the shed porch roof be modified as well. My main goal is to improve the line of sight from the third floor while maintaining an aesthetically pleasing exterior. Thanks for you consideration.

Many thanks for the prompt reply. Yes, by dog house I mean gable. See side view picture.

As you can see, the porch roof and dormers share the same angle. Ideally, I'd like to double the dormer window height to improve light and sight line from the third floor.

Floor plan - On some of your other houses, like the link below, you have a link to purchase floor plan. http://www.houzz.com/photos/365886/Shingle-Style-Dutch-Colonial-Exterior-traditional-exterior-minneapolis Does this house have this service as well? I love the attached garage area.

Is the fence just for decoration or is it around the entire property? - Thank you!

The fencing defines separate yard zones and the edge of the front property. I don't believe the fence runs continuously all around the entire property.

This chimney was stucco. It also could have been stone matching the column locations.

Is the porch wooden? Is the apron wooden? - Our builder has said that if we do a stone apron, we will have to go with a concrete porch. I like the idea of using stone as the pillar bases only if there is a way to do the wood in between them. I like the idea of a wooden porch, and we are also trying to save money on the foundation. Hope this makes sense. Thanks!

I really like the front porch which adds a different dimension to the box shape of the colonial. What is the ballpark cost to add this to an existing colonial and how do you get started with design plans for a project like this.

The porch is about 10' deep, extends the width of the house and wraps the corner back to a sunroom. From the corner to the sunroom it is a screen porch.

The fence was installed after the initial construction; therefore I do not have the exact information. However this appears to be a custom design constructed from cedar boards, rails and newel posts; with all components painted. The components should be available at most good lumber yards. This is a very classic, traditional look.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Diagonal cross balustrades are perfectly suited for the classic American Dutch colonial. Here they help enclose a screened-in porch.
