Yes, we routinely adjust sizes of our designs. The floor plan layout would be dramatically changed but can retain the main elements of the front facade

We no longer have the color specs on this house. The body was a greyish green, very light. See more photos this page to see the stucco in brighter light. The stone consists of most of the trim but the upper facia is a darker brown/purple. Thank you.

The turret was built integral to the house. It is framed in wood with stucco exterior. The finial is carved limestone from Mexico. The roofing is copper built on site. Thank you.

Palladio built brick columns and the stucco artisans were able to fashion smooth stucco over them. You can do this on a concrete column but be careful at the intersection of the shaft with head and base that the stucco does not overlap. Remember that all ancient columns were rarely one piece except marble columns used for interior temples and churches. Hiding the seams with stucco can be done. I suggest filling them only and repainting the column.

What color are the columns in front, and what color is the banding going around the bottom of the house? Unbelievably beautiful.

The columns in front are a natural limestone color, ordered from Mexico. The base matches the column color but is made of cast concrete.

This was a flat concrete tile by Monier. We used a gray and maroon color mix. Colors darker than daylight photos show.
