Love.... - .....this. From the old metal green light, to the functionally correct shutters! I can feel the breeze now! But where is the freshly brewed iced tea? It's the only thing missing from this snapshot of the past...

I contacted Sherwin Williams about this color and they could not find it?

French Quarter Green is truly a color that is used on many of the shutters in the quarter. It is a special mix. Ask your Sherwin Williams to call a store down in New Orleans, they will give him the paint color. I promise you will get it! It is a beautiful color! Susan from New Orleans

The wood in the railing (at steps) is called out on the construction documents as 1x4's with a butt joints that allows for expansion and contraction of the wood - so a little gap is often visible. The original design was a simple circle that can be created with a core drill.

Shutters - This is perhaps one of the loveliest porches I have ever seen! Can you give me some basic information on the purchase, fitting, and installation of the shutters? Thank you!

Thank you for your inquiry and compliment. The installation of these shutters was done at the time the home was built. The upper panels are fixed with fixed louvers. The lower panels are also fixed louvers but they are operable (they can be open, as shown, or closed for privacy). The shutters at the door are also operable. Our drawings specified shutters, but the technicalities of their installation was handled by the general contractor. We would suggest that you work with your contractor and/or or shutter manufacturer to address the specifics of your project. Good luck!

The swing was installed by a second owner (not the original owner that we worked with). Your best bet is to check with a local contractor to determine what installation method would work best for your specific conditions.

Where are the curtains from? - I like that they are more private than sheers, but it looks like they're still letting light through.

We are so sorry but the detailed construction files are archived and not easily accessible at this point.

It was custom made. You can, however, find companies that manufacturer these right here on Houzz if you search in the SHOP section.

The chair was a vintage piece that the homeowner purchased, but I don't know the source.

You should be able to find all of the information on the Houzz page of Our Town Plans. Here is a link to the specific plan picture above: 27 Cape San Blas and this is a very similar home (just a few modifications): 27 Aiken Street. For more information, visit Our Town Plans Website.

Hello! The paint information is already listed as an answer to a previous question. Just return to the photo and read through the questions on the right. Another tip, if you hover your mouse over a photo and see a green tag pop up next to an item in the photo, that means there is information on the product. We've tagged the shutters with source information. Just click or view the green tag for info.

If you want to know more about information that can be found in a Houzz photo, check out this article:

The homeowner added it to the house after it was constructed so we don't have the specifics, but there are many sources for these. We have seen them built by a carpenter on site, but you can also find them ready-made online. Here is just one source we are aware of: http://www.originalcharlestonbedswing.com/Main.html

Shutters and curtains transform the porch into a private sleeping porch at night. While the four-bedroom house easily sleeps 10, the record number stands at 20.
Lisa Higgins added this to Dream Spaces: Gracious, Spacious Front Porches
In this Florida cottage, the old-style shutters can be opened and closed for privacy and shelter from the weather. Imagine settling down on the cushy porch swing for an afternoon nap with the ceiling fan to keep you cool. Heaven!
Becky Harris added this to 11 Ways to Make Your Sleeping Porch Even Better
Sleeping as many people as possible was the goal with this Florida vacation home. Daybeds on the porch are used for hanging out during the day and getting shut-eye at night. Shutters and curtains provide privacy when necessary. See the rest of this home
