Love the garage doors. Are they wood or steel? Are they a 5 panel door?

These doors have a metal substrate with a wood clad exterior. The wood was well primed before the final paint finish was applied to help protect it from warping. They are rated for 140mph winds.

Just building the house now. I am referring to the inside foyer. Above the main entrance door, the elevation will be 2 stories high with a dormer directly above the door. Hard to explain. Wondering to decorate or finish the floor of the dormer.

The total cost of material and labor for each pillar (pouring of concrete footings, laying of structural cmu pier blocks behind brick, laying of brick, installation of trim board cap, installation of electrical wiring and installation of goose neck light) should cost you about $1,200-1,500 per pillar.

Can you tell me the garage door manufacturer? - WE are building a house on the coast on Long Island. I love these doors and see they can withstand 140mph winds. Thanks for your help.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A porte cochere is basically a porch large enough for wheeled vehicles to pass through. They're so porchy that haint blue ceilings work beautifully on them!
