    While I appreciate the interest in this home it is custom designed to the very unique lifestyle of the individuals who commissioned me to design their home. The plans are not for sale but my services as an owners representative, project manager, and architect are always available.
  • rbcola
    I guess it doesn't hurt to ask......but, do people realize someone paid you a professional fee to spend hours with them putting together the home they ended up with. People can buy books, magazines, shop on line for ideas and then take what you've kindly shared to do it. I've just spent a year working with an architect and you have handled everyone's complimentary requests like a pro.

    This is a unique home for this individual, so I generally don't sell plans for for my custom designs. I would, however, be happy to have a discussion with you about your future home. Please feel free to visit my website , www.norrisarchitecture.com, and contact me.

    They where custom made in a local shop. Quite often it is not much more expensive to get custom doors made than it is to buy them from a national supplier. Plus you are supporting your local economy and improving your carbon footprint.

    this came directly from a supplier in crab orchard. There are several suppliers there next to the interstate that have the same stone. This is medium Crab Orchard Field stone. We worked very closely with the mason to get the pattern right. Their tendency is to want to chip off the surface to shape the stone so there was definitely a learning curve for them not to do that and get them to understand that we wanted the natural surface.

    Tell me about the porch floor. It looks like Ipe wood. Is it?

    - If it's Ipe, is it laid with spacers or tongue and groove? Thanks.

    • Lawana Davis
      what is Ipe wood? Is this stained and then varnished for the glossy appearance? Thanks
    • PRO
      Here is a good explanation: http://edeck.com/ipe-decking/ipe-wood/
      I am not sure about this location but you can use a sealer with Ipe wood that will give it a glossier finish and help the brown color last longer without fading.

        The front is 46'-0" wide. I take it you realize the importance of proportion. Good for you. Also the porch is 12'-0" deep from the front of the columns. A usable porch depth is important.

        12". Also important is to keep the capitals simple and make sure that you always line the beam or entablature up with the body of the column and not the outer edge of the capital.

      Do you think the same look could be achieved if windows with bottom fillers were used instead of doors?

      • PRO
        Norris Architecture
        The same look certainly but not the same feel. So much of architecture Is about the experience. When you open those doors the inside and outside just flow together in a way that an open window set of the floor could never achieve. The porch becomes an extension of the inside. Even a few leaves carried in by the breeze adds to the charm.
      • serenbe
        I understand--because I was feeling that flow too as I experienced your magnificent porch, and the feeling was totally different when in my mind I tested replacing the doors with windows sets. I had not thought of the charm of leaves, but "Wow!" Another detail to bring awe. . . . My husband and I are planning this year to build a new home--a cottage--and it is designed with a porch across the front that uses windows, which hasn't been evoking any soulfulness for me. Your porch, however, took my breath away. So now I'm exploring how our plan can be modified to incorporate the stone and a similar porch, which will become the best features of the home. I appreciate your confirming that the doors are critical to achieving the same feel. (A big challenge is accommodating the 46 ft. since we presently have 36 ft.) . . . Thanks for sharing your great design through this website.

        Mr. Norris, you wrote July 25, 2016 that you were considering developing a house plan (hopefully with the exterior features of the Stone Residence) to offer for sale because you had received so many requests. Have you made a decision?

        The minimum I would do any porch is 8'-0" clear. This is to make it useful and if it is useful it feels better. 10'-0" is nicer. As for the proportions there are so many things to take into account like the height of the porch rack, this one is 8'-0", the height of the rest of the house, the amount of roof above, the height off of the ground, are the columns round or square, what is the style of the house. Are they tapered because you are going for a craftsman effect or are they round and that is the entasis. What is the spacing of the columns and do the doors/windows align with the space between the columns? What are the details of the column, you can't see it well in this photo but there is a neck mold about 8" down from the capital. If you want me to take a look at your elevation I can do that for a relatively small fee. email me at brad@norrisarchitecture.com

        what does a home like this cost to build per sq. ft?

        • PRO
          Norris Architecture
          This home was built 3 years ago So it's numbers are probably not relevant. Also I do not want to say what this home cost. However if you were to build this home today it would probably cost somewhere between 200 to 300 per sqft in the Nashville market. Construction costs vary around the country and in cities vs rural areas.

                    Can you confirm the height of the doors once more? If they are 4'6" wide, I calculate that the height is 7'6" and 8''6" with the transom. I'm not trying to second guess you, just trying to confirm the numbers.
