Thank you so much for your kind words. I am really sorry, but I can not recall what the paint color is called. I would suggest that you try a variety of colors on site when your stone is installed. Colors will vary greatly depending on the other colors around them and your lighting situation.

I have a stained mahogany laundry room. I want to use white shutters. - However, it is suggested by the vendor and friends that I use stained shutters to match the room. I like the look of white shutters when veiwing from the streets to match other shutters throughout the rest of the house. Thank you....

The shingles were original to the house and remained unchanged. We designed the porch addition.

There are a few places. I would start off with "The Field Stone Center" in Conyers.

The shutters have a simple pivot hinge. They do have a latch to hold them closed if need be.

Love the balance and symmetry. Do the shutter close like a bifold door? What type of hardware did you use?

Thanks for writing.

The shutter is on a pivot, and simply "spins" on a center axis. We used a "rixon" brand hinge, but you could get the same results with less expensive hardware.

And here's a closeup of that same porch. I love how they included a skylight in several of the squares.
