Hello. Thanks for the comment. I just looked back in our database to try to find that paint spec (we completed that house quite a while ago) and I can't seem to find any notes on the exterior siding paint color. Sorry. I've attached another image below that is a close up shot of the front door. Maybe that will help you narrow down some paint sample chips.

Age of this house? - Hi Tommy, Do you know the approximate age of this house. I write articles for HOUZZ and I may want to use this one in a future story. I would appreciate any information in that regard about this property. BTW Gig 'em. I went there too! : ) SCR

Hi Steve (and fellow Aggie). This house you are asking about was completed at the end of 2000. It is an original design by my then business partner and fellow aggie William Murray. Chambers & Murray, Inc. was responsible for the architecture and interior design on this project. It was designed and conceived with/for a long time client and her family of 5 in LaCanada, California.

Happy to help out any way I can with additional information. Appreciate the interest.

Kind regards...Tommy

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Roots of Style: Dutch Colonial Homes Settle on the Gambrel Roof
A gambrel roof establishes a focal point for this sprawling and elegant composition in Southern California. It has a complex balance of forms and elements blended unassumingly behind the gambrel. Notice the marvelously detailed lower-level triple window grouping happily topped by a Palladian window scheme, further emphasizing this focal point.Whether modest or not so, the Dutch colonial gambrel roof shape has survived through several hundred years of American home-building fashions. The original gambrel provided extra habitable space, while contemporary versions are more flexible, offer greater visual interest and are a lovely homage to those pioneering Dutch colonists.More: Trace more roots of home styles
