Is the roof material wooden shake? - Beautiful house. Would any other roofing materials look just as good?

TEA2 Architects
The roof material is wooden shingles. Going with an asphalt roof is an option, but may reduce some of the original authenticity to the overall design. Part of it depends on the look you are going for and budget.

Railing Design - Hi! We are building a custom home and having the railings custom made. Is that stained wood on the cap of the railing system or metal? What color did you have the metal railings made? Thanks!

Hello, the cap on the railing is teak fastened on top of a black powder coated steel railing.

How tall are columns? - How tall are the columns?

Thank you for reporting this. Undo
TEA2 Architects
Hi, Thanks for the question. The total height of columns are 10'-10" from the deck they are resting on to the beam they are visually supporting. The top of the central shaft is 14.5" dia and tapers down to the base of the column which is 17.5" dia. The shaft dimensions don't include the base and the capital tops. Spacing of the columns in plan varies. Hope this helps.

There is finished space below this porch. The structure below is concrete plank with a waterproof membrane which slopes to scuppers on the side of the porch.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Beth Woodson and Kristy Harvey added this to A Chic Seat for Every Porch
Shiny white lacquer is such a fresh look for a porch, especially in contrast with a darker floor. Covered with cushions or all alone, the furniture has a clean and crisp look. For style that endures, try having your furniture sprayed with automotive paint at your local auto-body shop.
