I love the tongue and groove on the ceiling. What width was used here? Very nice.

Thank you for your question. This is a custom made wood railing, that is shorter than the normal height. We typically do not specify composite railings, so unfortunately we cannot direct you to a source. Best of luck in your search.

Thank you so much. We would like to add a "shorter" rail to our front porch. They are hard to find! I think we'll building a custom railing! Thanks for the inspiration!

What are these columns built out of? Just treated lumber or something composite?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

On the outside of this home, the designer effectively combines traditional style — a columned porch with wood railing and tongue-and-groove ceiling — with a contemporary, clean-line aesthetic. The railing has been reduced to its most simple rectangular elements, and the columns to simple square-profile towers with simple baseboards. This gives them human scale and a beginning (at the porch) and an end (at the ceiling).More: Do You Live in a Minimalist Traditional House?
