Unfortunately, the plans are custom and designed specifically for the client. On the up side, there are several interior and exterior shots of this gate house. Just navigate to Murphy & Co. Design or on more info. Thank you.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

"It’s not hard to find the reclaimed wood; there are many different dealers that specialize in this," Murphy says. "They will often find other unique architectural items when they tear down a building, such as the old slate shingles ... the builder found these at the wood dealer's yard." The roof, with its rare dog ear-shaped shingles, came from an 1810 Pennsylvania barn.

This house makes me open to casement windows. I love the look here of the windows, stone, door, detailing. Whatever style this is works for me. Too bad there is a gable in the font but it has a small slope so I still love the house.
