Shannon - glad you liked this house. We designed it from ground up working with an existing 1920's Dutch Colonial that was gutted and redone. The additions including the garage gave the family all the additional space they needed and they are thrilled! We would be glad to assist you in your planning - let us know but you have to understand we don't give away plans for free. What is the upside for us to do that? Why would we work so hard with clients who truly appreciate the craft we provide? We work closely with clients to create their dream home and we are always fair and reasonable in how we charge. We can not give this away. There are too many hacks out there and remember the saying "you get what you pay for". If you want something free - don't expect much! We are professionals - not street artists.

Chris - sounds great! The Dutch Colonial style home is very popular and has very nice proportions. We enjoyed working on this house and if you notice we introduced more truly Colonial gable dormers on the garage roof as a counter point to the gable entry roof.. Good luck with the painting of your home! - Pierre-Christian

Good afternoon - I do not recall the exact paint colors but we normally use Benjamin Moore Aura paints. We also tend to go with Navajo White or a Cream color for trim and cornerboards rather than pure white.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Roots of Style: Dutch Colonial Homes Settle on the Gambrel Roof
The addition here tenderly respects the remodeled and updated original Dutch colonial revival house. Note that the garage now hosts its own gambrel roof on a second level, though with gabled dormers. Also, the setting back of the garage enhances the features of the primary original structure. A single-level addition to the right balances and complements an original single-level extension to the left, providing more space without distracting from the original intimate scale and theme.
