What are the outdoor lights you used. Thanks

Lite4 Outdoor Lighting
The warmth or "color temperature" of the lighting is due to two factors: 1- the warm color of the lamp or bulb (at least 2700 kelvin or warmer). 2nd- is the surface of the wood is a warm, bronze tone which effects the warm "orangey" color tone of the light. Surface color is a big factor in reflected light color.

Coastal Cedar Direct
There is a recommended maintenance schedule for wood siding like this. There are some important steps to take before applying the siding to the substrate. One of these steps is choosing a high quality wood/timber stain. Once the cedar is on the wall, re-coatings and cleanings are done when needed, in some cases years after the original installation.

What is the size of the left part ( the one with the deck ) ? Thanks !

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Modern architecture: the most amazing place to play with outdoor lighting. Many overscale outdoor fixtures can actually add to the architectural personality of the home from both close up and far away. For covered spaces, you can never go wrong with a vinyl Nelson saucer pendant.
John Hill added this to Outlooks: Walk Into the View
The overlook in the top-left corner is one of many outdoor spaces integrated into this Hillside House. There are inset balconies, terraces, and even semi-outdoor rooms (the stacked rooms in the photo's middle). The projecting balcony is an extension of a roof terrace. Note how a notch in the solid guardrail one floor below mimics this overlook.
Josh McCullar, AIA added this to Great Compositions: The Language of Walls
In a language of thinness, modulation, and precise structure, wood is used here to delineate the wall as a screening device. By varying the interval of spacing members, solidity transforms into layered openness like a large, fixed Venetian blind.
Ventana Construction LLC added this to Learn the Lingo of Construction Project Costs
Arriving at a cost for a project involves creating plans and specifications, and requires lots of time, thought and shopping. The more detailed the plans are, the more accurate the price. So how do you get the accuracy you need when you ask about price? Start with an understanding of the process and the lingo.

When adding in an in-law suite, something like this would be great to keep in mind. If we add anything to the house, it will most likely be off of the bunk room. This is where I'll put a slight bridge like this connecting the in-law suite/guest house to the rest of the house. Also, they will need at least a two car garage.
