Hello. These are concrete pavers. I believe they are Brogert. Unfortunately we don't have the final color chosen.

The roof material is wooden shingles. Going with an asphalt roof is an option, but may reduce some of the original authenticity to the overall design. Part of it depends on the look you are going for and budget.

These chandeliers were found by the client and are antiques. Unfortunately we don't have the resource information.

Thanks for your question. The flooring is Doussie and the cabinetry is Honduran Mahogony. We do not have the finish information for the flooring. The granite is "kashmir goold".

Bluestone. Depending on the concrete condition it could potentially be used, but really depends on the existing conditions

Thanks for your question. The exterior is cedar shingle. curving the shingles can be done through either soaking them for a period of time or they can be steamed.

My first impression was that your garage was too square, so I love the picture Pamela Bateman posted with the curved top garage doors & trim. Can you add some of the roof support/beam looking things (sorry don't know what they're called) under the eaves like in Madson Design's cabin drawing above? Also if you can make the roof line of the portico & dormer a little more droopy/curvy like the curved roof on the corner?

I also love the hanging roses & a nice picket fence would be beautiful! Make sure the walk to the front door has some curve to it & its made from different sized stones & lined with flowers. And by all means add a garden gate, arch, or arbor with hanging vines.

Came across this today while browsing at HGTV Gardens site. For those whose pocketbook is smaller than their home/garden dreams (like me!), maybe a little hobbit hole (add trees, vines, ferns), below. The blurb says suitable for sleepovers, tho' maybe just little kids:
"Wooden Wonders’ hobbit holes turn backyards into whimsical wonderlands. The brand-new playhouse version Woodshire, produced in Unity, Maine, is an enclosed space ideal for summer sleepovers and imagination-filled play dates, from $2,390 at www.wooden-wonders.com

Thanks for your question. Yes, each cabinet was custom made for the built-in niches to either side of the bench.

Thanks for your question. Most of the windows on the project were Pella Architect Series, with some being Marvin. All windows in the dormer were custom width with a custom curve applied to the top. The construction of the dormer was very complex with the header being constructed of arching LVL's and the roofing starting at an arch and sweeping back and merging in with the main roof with a complex sweep. Each dormer is unique and is hard to publish the technical info without having it designed to each homes specifics. Hope this helps.
