Stunning home -no words do it justice. Broad Price/sq ft question? - I'm also building a custom home in Chester Co. PA and have been at it for several years with zoning, subdividing, architectural design, etc. We are slated to break ground in August. I would love to know, assuming the size of this house is 8000 sq. ft. given all three levels, what the approximate price per square foot is to achieve a home with this level of planning, design and execution.

Does the gas firebox against the stone wall in the living room actually have a chimney? Does it need one? I am remodeling and love the fireplace but our house does not have a chimney and a fireplace would need to be on an interior wall.

I asked the question regarding sq. ft. because my home has nowhere near the quality of finishings as this home (although we upgraded nearly everywhere) and we still paid $135/sqft (this did not include the cost of the land, this was purely per sqft). I'm thinking that a house of this type must run somewhere closer to $200-$300/sqft.

No, no, no. TO clarify, I don't mean just like a "floor plan". I mean your architectural renderings and build plans. So I can give them to our contractor and build it for free. ; )

How wide are the cypress boards in the reverse board and batten - What are the dimensions of the cypress boards in the reverse board and batten. Are the boards 8 inches across and the batten one inch? The design is spectacular. Just amazing. Many thanks.

Bragg Hill Stucco and Siding Question - Your home is lovely. Would you mind sharing the stucco color, and if you treated the board and batt siding with anything? Your feedback is much appreciated and needed :)

metal roof - Hi, this looks like a Galvalume roof. Can you tell me if it is clear coated or some other finish? I love the colour and it is not so shiny-white as other images I've seen of Galvalume. thank you.

Color - I love the red paint color you used on the house. Red is so hard sometimes to find the right shade . You certainly hit a home run with this one. Can you please share the paint brand and color name ? Thanks so much!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Hill added this to 10 Surprising Resolutions of a Modern Architect
3. Delve into the vernacular. Yes, I love modern and contemporary design, but more than that I love good design. While I'm not a fan of new design that mimics old styles, I can find beauty in traditional design, especially the vernacular.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Vernacular Design: Architecture's Regional Voices
A vernacular design has a language that can be, like any language, broken into parts and reassembled to create new meanings. When architects design in a vernacular style, they break that local design language into its components and reassemble them to write a new design story. So while a roof shape, siding material, color and stone base remind us of the local barns, we may be presented with something altogether new.

Becky Harris added this to Houzz Tour: Nestling Into the Rural Pennsylvania Landscape
The building includes materials made of recycled content; it also has a superinsulated and tight envelope, cisterns, solar panels, geothermal heating and cooling systems, passive ventilation and reclaimed barn wood. “The house isn’t quite net zero,” Moger says, “but it’s darn close.”

Jennifer Ott Design added this to Exterior Color of the Week: Rich, Fall-Friendly Reds
If you’re loving these rich red hues but are concerned about using them in large amounts on the exterior of your home, think about breaking them up. This is a look best pulled off on contemporary or rustic homes, but even a traditional home could add a red-hued gable or, at the very least, a ruby-red front door.
