You can! Just look above the words "Ask a Question" (like where you posted this question) and toward the top of the page you'll see thumbnails titled something like "more photos from this project".

I like the garden edging. Is it wrought iron?

They are dog ear-shaped shingles which came from an 1810 Pennsylvania barn. Thank you.

Stone - Is this a currently-available stone on the exterior? If not, would you know if there is an available stone that would approximate this look? Thank you!

This is reclaimed exterior stone. They make some manufactured stone products that do a decent job of simulating this look, but nothing quite like the real stone. Thanks.

Hello, the square footage is 860. I'm sorry we can't share the floor plan, as it was a custom design for our client and they would like to keep that private. Thanks for your inquiry!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

"My client is an avid gardener, and the property looks like an arboretum," says Murphy. On this side of the house, the owner's green thumb and collecting skills meet — roses climb an old French orangerie window. A weeping spruce adds its unique profile to the site.
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to Make Your Garden Come Alive With a Sense of Movement
PlantsWeeping and contorted trees, as well as appropriately pruned Japanese maples, can add an unexpected dose of implied movement to your garden. Picture the conifers that cling to the rocky ocean cliffs of the Pacific Northwest. These ancient trees have been blown, twisted and shaped by the wind over centuries. The implied movement captured in these trees records both history and nature’s fury. By visiting specialty nurseries, you can re-create this look in your garden. Trees to consider include Japanese white and black pines (Pinus parviflora and Pinus thunbergii, USDA zones 4 to 8), Hinoki false cypress (Chamaecyparis obtusa, zones 5 to 9) and various cultivars of Norway spruce (Picea abies cvs, zones 2 to 8).Specimen trees chosen for this purpose must be handpicked, not ordered from Internet sources, because each tree has its unique shape. Taking this step can save you years of training, shaping and pruning.
