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".

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.
