They are rafter tails. The end of the roof rafters. They are exposed in lieu of covering them up with boxing. Circle is just a decorative detail

Debby, thank you for the question. I do not have the colors. The project is 10 years old and the client selected the colors. They where probably custom mixed. Where the client placed samples on the house and adjusted them based on how they were seen on this environment.

My guess is they started with Ben Moore and went from there. Most of homes are done this way. Very few are pained out of the can. I would recommend you get the Ben M0ore color wheel and select your palette. Then mock up samples on your home.

I think the House gray is a solid stain and not paint. Probably a Cabot stain color.

Just an aside, I just read a study was done in the UK that found we see colors different based on the time of your. And I know the color of daylight changes from 2500k to 7000k thru ought the day. Warm morning glow to blue-ish light at mid day. And one color next to the other effect who you see.

Please consider consulting a color expert in your area and I am sure they can put together a color palette inspired by this one.

Best of luck to you.

This house was built from the ground up, however it could be an addition as well. The symmetry may be hard to achieve if the base house does not have symmetry already.

What part are you referring to?

Tile is man made. selected by owner.

Doors are 3/8" glass

Standard in wall mount tub. 32x60x16

Please consult a builder or appropriate showroom for the pricing of the parts. And labor to install. All these can very widely. This project is also 2 years old so pricing then is not pricing now.

This is a gorgeous beach house! I love the different shades of blue with the white. They are perfect colors for a beach house.

This window is by Kolbe and Kolbe. Any major window manufacture should offer round windows. The muntins are SDL bars. Marvin, Pella, are some companies that can make a round window.

I do not. Please consult an engineer in your area. We have used them for footings and stabilization but not lifting a building.
