We don't know. The owner did a lot of the work themselves, including selecting paint colors. You could try using the color selector app of the Houzz website to get close.

We love this house but are concerned about the maintenance of the wood on the outside.

The wood in the soffits is pretty well protected and shouldn't need touch up for ten years or so. The wood windows and doors will require a new coat of sealer every three to five years, depending on orientation (this house faces north, so UV damage isn't as severe as a south facing home). I was just there, and the windows/doors still looks good after 3+ years.. If this is too much maintenance, then you should consider a clad window product.

thanks!! The house is located on Marrowstone Island, just outside of Port Townsend, WA. The owners are very happy there, and have no intention of selling.

These were custom built, though Loewen has some similar.

Mr. Gehl, the house is out of this world. Do you have pics of the bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen? Can the plans be purchased?

what kind of wood did you use on soffits? - We are building a modern mountain home. Our architect wants to use Douglas Fir for the exterior soffits. I think that wood has to much grain and won't look good. We picked cedar for the exterior for the house. Which is the best pick for the soffits? Help????

Barry, what type of stain / finish is on the soffit? Beautiful work!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Open up a corner. Take indoor-outdoor living to the next level by bringing a wall of glass doors right around a corner. When the doors are all open, the boundary between interior and exterior is blurred in a wonderfully mellow way.
