I'm sorry, but we built this home several years ago, so our files for the project are in storage. I do not recall the stone or siding selections. Good luck with your new home! Thanks!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Looking sideways. Sidelights will cast a glow across the steps. The ones in the low wall lining each side of these steps are unobtrusive but provide sufficient lighting at night.
