The colors were chosen by an interior designer. Those colors do not typically come across my desk, and even more rarely do they end up in a file. I know that's frustrating. Sorry, guys.

Thank you very much. we no longer have record of these color selections. I do not recommend getting colors off of websites. Most photos, ours included, have been modified for optimal appearance, which can distort the color. Best of luck to you.

Jay, you're doing a remodel for $2600?!? That sounds pretty cheap. Congrats. We do not publish floor plans for our houses in an effort to protect the intellectual property rights of the creator. This house has 3 bedrooms, 2 bath, utility, desk nook upstairs. Thank you for engaging with us and reviewing our portfolio.

The client had it made. It uses old railway ties. They hired a regular iron fence guy to handle it. Thank you for asking. Good luck.

This is a custom home that is approximately 3100 s.f. in Houston, TX. There are more photos of this house on Houzz. We are not providing any specification information as it is a private residence. Thank you very much for our interest. I hope you find the rest of our work as enjoyable.

Window sills are purchased from the window manufacturer and sent out in 12' lengths (I believe) with the windows. The framer then cuts them to size. Thanks for asking.

These are Jeld Wen wood windows. The casing is applied on site, probably a 1x4 with the typical craftsman header. thanks for asking.

Sorry, we do not have the house color on file any more. Please be careful of getting specific color names from online sources like Houzz. I know that OUR photos have been "retouched" or "edited" which often distorts the color bit. I know MOST photos you see online are going to be that way. Best of luck to you.

The front and the sides are not the same. The front is about 7'. The side is really more for side courtyard (not shown) access and is only about 4' clear between the columns and the wall.

Roofing and exterior? - What is the roof made from? Slate tiles? Also what is on the exterior of the house (walls)? Is it some type of nutec wooden panels then painted over in the respective 'grey colour'? Does this board deal well with weather on outside or is painted plaster or brick for a house better?

The roof is typical composition shingles, found extensively throught out the US. The walls are cementitious siding from James Hardie (US national brand). It paints easily, and it lasts a long time, longer than unmaintained stucco but not as long as brick with is pretty maintenance free. It does need to be repainted ever 5-10 years depending on your climate.

I do not have the colors for any of my houses. Be careful trying to match a photo. Many (mine included) have been enhanced by photoshop and the true color will be somewhat different from what you see on your computer screen. Thank you for asking.
