Custom Agrarian ResidenceTransitional Exterior, San Francisco
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Front door: Custom-made of Douglas fir and glass. A long hallway greets guests when they enter the house, with glass doors along one wall opening to a courtyard. This creates fluidity between indoors and out, front door and courtyard, with the hallway feeling more like a breezeway or loggia between the two main pieces of the house.Exterior siding: The exterior siding is board and batten clear Western red cedar with a dark, semi-solid, oil-based stain. The architects selected the material because of its association with Northern California. The front door’s surround is Western red cedar with a lighter stain. The lightness of the entry helps break up the home’s volume and update the more traditional darker siding. Overhang: The minimal overhang is made of Western red cedar. The front door sits back a couple of feet from the edge of the home, drawing visitors in.
