Thanks for the interest in our project. That info is in dead file storage and not easy to get to. I believe it is a pretty typical paver brick. I'd recommend heading to your local brick supplier and seeing what is available. Good luck.

If you take a look at the rest of the images in that project, part of that project was the addition of the garage and the apartment above. This is a view of the stair that leads up to it.

How were the paver bricks layed-with mortar or sand? - Were the paver bricks on the elevated patio landing set in mortar or freeset? Also the interior patio pavers set in mortar or sand, built up with gravel or set on underlying pavers?

I'm not certain on that project if those are set in mortar or not. In nearly every project they are set on a slab though, we've just been happier with the end result even if it adds a little cost.

Oh my goodness this project was done over a decade ago! The siding is probably James Hardie shingle but the color is in dead file storage and isn't very accessible. Glad you like the project. Thanks

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Like the exclamation point, this rotated square ends and emphasizes the string of rooms before it. This room is made all the more special with its tall and stepped windows, abundant natural light and tall ceiling.
