What is the height to the ridge of the roof? What about to the soffit? (or, what is the pitch?)

The dormers are fantastic. I would like to attempt something similar, with the carport in an L configuration.

Have you ever done a white hardie with a dark brown/black trim? Love this house. - We were just thinking that the dark trim color would make the window trim more enhanced. I haven't been able to find any examples of this. Thank you.

What shingle color would you recommend to compliment this metal roof? - We are building in 1 month and I used this picture as our inspiration. It is absolutely stunning! Question for you...If you had to mix in a shingled roof what color/style would you use? Browns..black..grey? We were thinking of only adding the metal to the covered porch and garage/barn. But need another choice for the rest of the house. Any advice to keep it cohesive? Thanks so much!

I would go with a dark shade of gray. Consider a shade of gray like, Galveston Gray AC-27 by Benjamin Moore. Sort of a gray/ taupe, which would look great with roof color and landscaping as well. Hope that helps. Charmean Neithart

Beautiful! There are lots of choices for roofing, but I think what I would do is go with a mottled tile or chose a tiles that have some colour variation. This would allow you to coordinate a different roof material and give you lots of choices with respect to the other elements (now and in the future). Here are some suggestions..

Square Footage? - We, too, are working on a multi year plan and would like to do something very similar with a garage. In this design, what is the square footage for the apartment above?

This particular roof is a 16" standing seam metal roof with a clear galvalume finish. The roof material came from a local metal distributor that fabricates all the panels in house. Most metal distributors offer a variety of standard metal roofing panels with this finish. A quick search on the internet of local metal roofing distributors in your area should do the trick. Hope this helps.

Perfect. I just couldn't tell from the photo if it was a cream color or clear galvalume. It truly is beautiful. I'm building a farmhouse at the moment, and really struggling with the exterior colors. But this photo keeps coming back to my mind.....

They are not a stock item. The local distributor had to custom make them. They cost approximately $8,000 per door. You should be able to find similar doors with companies like Amarr and Clopay. They have great websites. Hope this helps.

I can only find Westhighland White as a interior color at sherman williams can it be used for the exterior on hardie and are there any major drawbacks to using an interior color on the exterior?

It should still be available in an exterior grade. The stores in our area have always had it available for exterior use.
