We typically budget $80-$100 per lineal foot for solid Bluestone steps (which is what is in the foreground of the photo). Depending on your area you will want to get specific pricing.

Thanks for your question. The exterior is cedar shingle. curving the shingles can be done through either soaking them for a period of time or they can be steamed.

The finial was custom designed and built by the roofing contractor. Sorry we couldn't be more specific.

Its very hard to identify from this photo. It looks to be a 1x6 t&g western red cedar select tight knot, or possibly a 1x4 T&G clear fir ceiling.. Hopefully that helps!

We are currently building a white cedar home, and need to get it to this color asap, who can we talk to about your mixture and how it was done? Love this home! We chose a stone based on the house turning grey and right now the stone and cedar do not look good together...need to hurry up that grey ! thank you

Are the shingles white cedar? If so, would the 50/50 mix work on red cedar shingles as well?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Curb Appeal Begs Your Attention
LandscapingLandscaping is an opportunity to extend the feel and character of your home to the edges of your property. Doing this can create a streetscape that's not only enjoyable but valuable. After all, who doesn't want to live on a beautiful street?Hardscapes — driveways, walks, stoops, patios and so on — reinforce the overall character of a house and draw visitors in. So do softscapes, such as grass, flower beds, bushes and trees. Fences can act as both invitation and barrier, depending on your location and privacy needs.
Kristy Woodson Harvey and Beth Woodson added this to Star Home Facade Combo: Stone and Shingle
For terrific curb appeal, stone walkways and driveways are a go-to choice. Blending the color palettes of the stone and shingles really works.
