Do you know of a source for grey pea gravel in Florida?

Sorry... can't help you with sourcing material in Florida as we are in California but it is a fairly common type of DG (decomposed granite). Good luck!

Decking gravel / Looks great! - What type of gravel did you use for the decking (I am guessing CR-6)? Does it stay in place with high winds or traffic? Lastly, is it dusty? Thank you in advance as we are thinking about a similar look for a driveway where we are looking for a permeable solution.

We used a common grey DG from our local stone supplier (I honestly don't know the name). There is an polymer additive you can use to make it more stable. You spray it on them use a tamper. It cuts down on most of the dust but not all and we found that it is easily dug up (read... our dog is a digger!). Not sure I would use it on a driveway because of the weigh of the car and wear and tear of the tires. You may want to consult a professional landscape contractor on this one... good luck!

There is a weed barrier below the DG to keep the weeds from growing through. Without it, there would be tons of weeds!

Is it a costly railing??

Hmmm... good question. The material and fabrication were not that expensive but it was a bit tricky to install as they brought it out all in one piece then had to field weld to the uprights. Not sure how that would compare to prefab railing... probably a bit more expensive but worth it for the look.

what is the wood siding material

The wood siding is 6" wide tongue and groove redwood with blind nailing and a light stain to protect it from UV as this is the South side of the house. We mitered all the corners so that we did not have verticals to keep it clean and modern. The contractor was definitely not happy while installing as it was tedious but the final look was well worth it.

It looks like concrete but it is actually light grey DG (decomposed granite). Love the look but it does track in light grey dust... a problem when you have dark floors.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Jason Ball Interiors, LLC added this to Home Design: Contemporary Country Living
There is just something about California living that is so appealing. This contemporary home rises above the valley below providing the homeowners a fantastic vantage point of the surrounding area. Outdoor seating both above and below invite us to take relax, take in the view, to be one with the nature around us.
John Hill added this to Outlooks: Walk Into the View
... this overlook is perched above the terrace below. The second-floor space gives a higher glance down the sloping landscape from above. It also shades the ground-floor entry.
Mariana Pickering (Emu Architects) added this to Landscaping Tricks to Manage Stormwater Runoff
In this example the owners have probably saved quite a bit of money over the life span of this deck. Instead of using wooden planks that would need to be refinished and eventually replaced, they’ve used wood to frame a low-maintenance and relatively porous gravel deck.
