Third House Plan - I noticed that the plan that was featured in Southern Living seems to be different than this one. Is that plan available for purchase and if so, could I get a copy to review before purchase?

Hi Rick...its Barb again. - Rick, we purchased our property and are ready to start plans. i was wondering about the windows over the kitchen. The part that opens that is hinged from the top...are these windows or shutters? In some photos it looks like the windows open from the top, yet the comments indicate they are shutters. Would it be both? If shutters, does enough light get in?? Thanks so much. Hope you can find the time to answer. You have been so helpful and I do appreciate it. Barb

They're shaped, not complex but not as simple as you see on a lot of "new-old" designs.

Hi Rick! Thanks again for all your help. Just one more question. - What is the triangular"ish" building to the left of the veranda? Is it a greenhouse?

It's part of the house (if we're talking about the same thing). the window under the far left side of the porch is in the kitchen and to the left of that is the pantry.

This a terne roof by It's their standard red painted after the roof is installed. They have a pre-painted product but this is a slightly softer and more traditional look.

1 x 6 tight joint tongue and groove, then 1/2 in. plywood. The exposed rafter tails are pressure treated pine, "scabbed" on to the main rafters (which stop at the face of the outside wall. The top of the exposed rafter is dropped 3/4 in. below the top of the main rafters.

Thanks for buying the plans! On the original, we wanted the siding and trim and windows to be the same color. If was my choice, I'd go with the stone gray color window and match everything to that.

Oh, the shutters are PVC and they came from Atlantic Shutter Co. We had the shutter "arm" (that holds the shutter open) made out of wrought iron. It has two positions, opened and closed. The "standard" bermuda shutter arm is very functional, very adjustable and also very clunky and ugly.

Actually you can just reface it with stone veneer. I'm having that done to my fireplace right now. I'm refacing it with limestone. But their are a ton of options with the veneer.

The most reasonable "authentic" thing to do would be to replace the brick with an equivalent thickness of natural stone.

Oops, should have mentioned that. It's a six panel door, solid with no glass. We also use real bronze thresholds, much more durable than the bronze painted aluminum ones, bur, of course, more expensive.

Yes, the screen door swings out and the front door swings in. The front door and the screen door are 1 3/4" x 8'-0" mahogany, with a Rez "fruitwood" stain (or something similar).
