Not at all, Crissey. This duplex was built for approximately $130/sf back in 2009. I state the year because prices have gone up and I would imagine it would cost more like $140-150/sf today. Glad you like it!

The wood siding is simply 1x6 cedar, stained. It does require maintenance as all wood does but cedar wears better than most. It will turn grey unless you re-stain it every couple of years. You can gain a few more years if the super intense Texas sun isn't hitting it all the time - using shading devices and such.

The main part of the house (living spaces) are 22' wide but the garage sticks out from that and adds another 21'.

We applied 1x4 T&G cedar boards to a standard aluminum garage door with adhesive and stained it. Glad you like it!

Can you tell me about the columns? are they steel with wood 2Xs attached to them? or painted wood and stained wood fins?
December 4, 2013 at 10:36am   
Thank you for reporting this. Undo
Good guess. Yes, the columns are square tube steel with 1x6 ipe (Brazillian "teak") attached to the sides.

What kind of stone - What type of stone is this and where could one find something similar?

Nick Mehl Architecture
It's a mix of native Texas limestone which is comprised of equal amounts of white, brown and blue/grey limestone colors. The horizontal bands is a 4" tall blue/grey limestone.

is flat roof better than slope roof?

Nick Mehl Architecture
Generally, no. A slope roof is better to shed water,easier to waterproof and provides an attic space to hide mechanical equipment but sometimes a flat roof looks better.

Nga Phm
is it more cost effective to build a flat roof even w/ extra engineering for drains or is it the same amt as building with prefabbed trusses?
