What Houzz contributors are saying:
She also borrowed a wise idea from the original home. Recessing the front door created a protective front porch and a grander sense of entry. It is tucked between the garage and living room bays, and covered by an upper balcony. The guardrail frames are the same western red cedar used on the siding, and the metal railings are powder-coated tube steel, precisely inset into the posts by a CNC saw. Attention to detail created continuity and a careful balance of materials. For example, Heydt had the planters and soffit screen fabricated in matching powder-coated steel. And she had the concrete stained to match the color of the metal railings.
What Houzzers are commenting on:
Good morning. Thank you for your question! We used Clear, Vertical Grain Western Red Cedar 4x4s for the posts and frame rails and powder coated 2x3 steel tubes for the intermediary rails which we inset into the posts with the use of a computerized router. Hope that helps!
