Shades of Gray

This once modest beach cottage was slowly transformed over the years into a grand estate on one of the North Shore's best beaches. Siemasko + Verbridge designed a modest addition while reworking the entire floor plan to meet the needs of a large family.

Oh you can get the same light from Lantern & Scroll (find them on here or Facebook). They are the manufacturer, and Carolina Lanterns a resaler. (I did my research while looking for a similar light). Good luck, and they are great to work with!

Thanks for your inquiry. We recently found out what color was used. These are Maibec shingles and the color is Driftwood Gray by Cabot Stains.

Thanks for your question! The structure is simply connected by a nailing ledgers against the plywood. Then shingled around. Hope that helps!

Thanks for your question. Not sure if you are referring to a different picture or not. Yes, cherry cabinets can have a more even color if you take care in selecting the wood to build the cabinet before hand.

Thanks for your question. This is a custom shower, parts of the wood came pre primed, but the whole shower was painted white after construction.

Yes, Nimbus Gray 2131-50 by Ben Moore is a very similar color. In most of our projects exterior colors are custom mixed to our client’s preference, which is the situation here.

How do you keep the plumbing from freezing up in the winter? Is there a shut off valve somewhere?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

2. Help the shower stall blend with the house via architectural elements. A pergola overhead, a paint color that matches the home's trim and a showerhead with a similar finish to that of the outdoor lantern all make this outdoor shower part of the house.
