Siding verses shake? - Incredible exterior! I'm trying to understand if you used siding AND shake on this home. I'm just learning about all these exterior materials as we design and it looks like you used 2 different materials here. Is that correct? Also - are the shake shingles actually individual shingles or another kind of "siding"? Thanks!

Yes we used both cedar siding and cedar shakes on this home we built back in 2007. There are different sizes of siding and also sizes and styles of shake so check with your builder as to what looks best with your home and budget.

Just the diamond windows units were Marvin the rest of the double hung part are Integrity. We love the Integrity line for the price point and quality. We often use Marvin for any customization that isn't offered in the Integrity line. Your builder should be able to help you with windows - it is such an important part of the home design and not an area that you should just settle for whatever is most easily available. I've seen many homes try to imitate this design with cheap looking window and grills...too expensive to redo - do it right the first time is our advice.

We built this home in 2007 - we do not have a formula that we can provide but remember that you are looking at a picture, taken by an excellent photographer in the early morning hours - house faces east. Your builder should provide you samples of colors on the material you are using - this was cedar. You need to look at the samples at different times of days and on different sides of the home. From there you can see if it is the right color for your home and in your setting - lightening, darkening, or adding other colors to it. A good builder should be able to help you through this process. Never go by just a picture for your colors online for something as important as the exterior on your home without getting a sample made first. Even a formula can be different depending on who is supplying the material. Good luck with your new home - we know it can be challenging but do take the time to make it right!

Thank you- we designed and built this home in 2007. The stain was a mixture that we came up with on site. It was a walnut based stain to start with and after that we added a little of this and that to come up with the color that we thought looked best on this home. We rarely use a straight stain out of the can.

Thank you for your interest in this home. We designed and built this custom home for a specific narrow property on an "in- town" lot that was about 65 x 174. The house itself is actually quite large with 3 floors and over 6,000 sq. ft. not including the basement. Our homes are all custom and therefore we do not release the floor plans. If you have any more questions you are welcome to call or email our office.

The real stone around the foundation and the fireplace was a blend of several types. Our masons worked with us to get a percentage of each selection to get the look that we wanted on this house. Best bet is to have your builder or mason try to find something that looks similar to picture (and that is available in your area), then see how it looks together. Also, have them put together a small sample wall before you commit to your order.
