Stairwell - I love this home and have used it as a source of inspiration for our home we are building. I am looking for a exterior stair well exactly like this. Can you please tell me where you were able to locate it? Thank you for your response!

the structure is all custom - the stringers are simple galvanized steel channels and the treads are off the shelf from a local metal supplier. there are bound to be similar suppliers in your area. ask your architect.

What is the best material for a car porch? - If we use tiles, I feel it is not much durable. It should be affordable too. Thanks

hi thanks for your question - the budget is confidential at the owners request. the carport and apartment you see in this photo was completed along with the primary residence. the whole construction process was about 12 months.

Steel? - Is that a steal beam that is running horizontally above the cars, or is that wood? If it is steel, how large is it? I am building a similar carport and the design calls for 10 inch steel and I'm worried about it being too heavy and looking like a bridge. Also, what type of wood is the cladding and the ceiling? Mangaris?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to 11 Home Designs Driven by Carports
The house form serves as a big gate that can be opened only by arriving in a car. And the cars sit firmly in the center, not off to one side. How American is that?
