Who makes the front door? - Is it wood or fiberglass?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

This was a custom design by me. It's my interpretation of a deconstructed arts + crafts door. The local lumber mill has a door shop, and they made it to my specifications. It wasn't very expensive considering, perhaps $2000.

Nice! What is the railing post that is not brick? Thanks.

The columns on L + R of the porch are tapered wood columns typically. On this house, we built those with a stucco finish for longer, lower maintenance. The small (not that small actually) newel post at the top of the steps is made of wood, painted.. Thanks for inquiring. Have a happy new year.

Looking for siding for my home - What brand, size and color of siding?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
2Scale Architects
I don't know the colors off hand. The siding is James Hardie, standard stuff. Nothing special. It's smooth, not textured. I used several different sizes to create the different patterns and densities of shadow lines. It's another way we took the traditional wood siding look of the historic neighboring homes and made it contemporary (ie: fun). Thank you for noticing.

Love the exterior color pattern - may I ask what colors are those?

previous questions have been answered with the colors (which I don't have on hand). Sorry. Please be aware that many photos online (including ours) have been edited with software and may not reveal the true color. Your computer monitor may also distort the color. Be sure to paint samples on actual walls first. Best of luck.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The home's contemporary quality adds just a bit of tension to the historic neighborhood. "It's very structured and organized but allows for loose, very fun, vibrant individuals to live there," Swedberg says. The A-shape roof design is Swedberg's interpretation of an iconic house shape. “As a little kid drawing a house in school, it’s always a house with an A shape on top," he says. "For many modern houses, people want to put flat roofs so it looks like an office building, and I have projects like that. But if I can do a modern house that still has an A-frame or gable roof, it appeals to a lot more people, especially in a historic neighborhood.” Swedberg made the house’s general proportions and scale fit with what old houses tended to look like, but he then did subtler and playful things with modern materials and details, like a metal handrail and siding that adds a bit of texture to the front and then transitions into corrugated metal in the back. "And the low-pitched front roof is indicative of Arts and Crafts style," he says, "but the exaggerated portions of the overhangs and modern interpretation of brackets take the standard convention of an Arts and Crafts home and twist it a little bit, infusing nuances that feel more playful and current.”
