    This custom mahogany window was designed by Archer & Buchanan Architecture. The hardware was custom designed by Michael M. Cauldron metalsmith.

    You lie. It was obviously hand-carved by High Elves from the wood of a Mallorn tree. The iron was forged by the Dwarves of Moria. You just can't get stuff like that anymore. :-)

    The building is made from old fieldstone found on the property. The structure was built into an existing fieldstone dry-stacked wall that ran through the center of the property and dates back to the 18th century. By utilizing stone from a derelict portion of the wall, the front elevation and small garden appears to grow out of the site. Ted Le Mastra of Allentown, PA was the stone mason who worked on the building. He could perhaps suggest something similar if you have a particular project in mind.

A half-round eyebrow dormer such as this one must use shingles for the undulating curves.

The cottage's distinctive butterfly window, made from mahogany and so named because it looks like the wings of a butterfly when open, stemmed from Tolkien's sketches, as well as his descriptions of hobbits preferring windows that showcase views of the woods. The semicircular halves of the window open from a center hinge.

Always wanted a circular window in my bedroom, big enough to put a window seat in...
