Cedar Valley Mfg. Inc.
Cedar Valley makes a panel using real western red cedar shingles that installs easier than hand shingles and is also offered with factory staining if that's something you're interested in. Call us at our factory if you have any questions or are interested in a sample of our product. 800.521.9523

I do not typically include screened or other porches in the square footage calculations. Just heated spaces only.

The exterior is natural cedar shingles with a Cabots Semi-Transparent Stain. I believe the exterior trim was painted "Linen", by Benjamin Moore.

Is crown molding still favored in design?

This is a more contemporary interpretation of a cape cod - we felt it unnecessary to adorn with crown moldings. If you are looking for a more traditional cape cod then you might consider crown moldings.

I'd love to see that more recent photo. Especially since the grove is going to work well to pull the house down to the land...an aspect that I would think might be a nice plus given how flat the surrounding land is. Those birches are cool...maybe some Stewartia next time around?

Thank you! I was just curious to see how big it was on the main floor and basement! This is on the top of my list for our new home. The area above the garage would be perfect for my photography business.

Hi Ron, The plans on the website are MUCH different than this beautiful home. Can you give us an idea of the square footage of this home? It seems much larger than the home plan on your website.

This is the exact same house that is one our website. If you are looking for a larger home we would be happy to custom design for you which is "inspired" by this design. Feel free to get in touch with me to discuss.

The cedar shingles were finished with a Cabots Semi-Solid stain product. I do not know the exact color used. The house has since weathered into a beautiful gray-blue color. The trim was painted an off white - I believe linen white from Benjamin Moore.

Thanks for the question.
These columns were approximately 12" square and about 8 foot tall. A number of things might inform the size of the columns but height is very important along with the distance between columns. Without seeing your specific porch configuration it would be difficult to make a recommendation.

The siding is western red cedar shingles with a Cabot's semi-transparent stain. I do not have the exact color available.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Roots of Style: Shingle Style Is Back — Here's How to Spot It
Strong rooflines. Roof shapes of the shingle style vary dramatically from one example to another but always dominate the impression of the house. Gable, hip, gambrel and shed roofs and dormers can all be found on shingle-style homes; in many cases they can even be combined on one house. The cross gable shape, like this one, is one of the simpler designs. Notice the curved ascendance on the porch roof as well as the shed-roofed section near the garage. These details give this house a unique identity.

To *me.* Worst Feng Shui ever. All straight lines, perfect angles. Think about it-would you rather come home to this or this house with more flowers, less symmetry, Needs to look way more welcoming.
