Unfortunately I don't know what they were treated with, I would recommend checking with Great Neighborhood Homes who built the home and specified all the exterior products. thanks!

Hello! I believe this was a custom mix but I do know that one of the colors/styles used was the Cassidy from Table Rock. It was purchased through our local distributor Hedberg Supply. Here's a link to the stone:

The porch was approx 6' deep from the front of the fireplace the edge of the Porch and approx 9' deep by the swing. Hope that helps!

Mitchell Parker added this to Room of the Day: S’mores, a Swing and Fireside Chats on a Front Porch
Porch at a GlanceWho lives here: Susan and Mark Lacek; their daughters, Emmy, 14, and Ally, 12; and their dog, Mr. BLocation: Minneapolis Size: 325 square feet (30.2 square meters)Designers: Laura Engen and Rob EdmanYear built: 1926, remodeled in 2015Homeowners’ request: A place to gather with neighbors, a fireplace to roast marshmallows with the kids and a porch swing. “It was also important to have a Haint Blue ceiling and front door to ward off evil spirits,” designer Laura Engen says. Painting porch ceilings blue is a Southern tradition adopted for a variety of reasons, from deterring haints, or evil spirits, to tricking spiders and wasps into thinking it’s the sky and not making nests there. Why this room: During the remodel of this converted Tudor home, the owners wanted outdoor spaces where they and their daughters — Emmy, 14, and Ally, 12 — could hang out and entertain friends. As for the aesthetic, the family once lived in the British West Indies, and wanted to bring that coast feel to Minnesota with a casual, relaxed beach theme. The fireplace extends the use of the space into spring and fall, despite chilly weather.

covered porch area with outdoor fireplace; ignore all else

Side of house if no addition in that area

love this, only in a much smaller version
built4us added this to Mast Rd. Exterior
really like the outdoor fireplace under the roof - patio
jmmcnellis added this to Washed Away
Nice sitting areas. I like the wood style rockers, old style wicker and this wicker style options for Washed Away. I think any of them would work with the style of home.
