Roughly what would this house cost to build? We are in love with the design and layout of it and saw you mention the sq ft size above and just want to know if it would be mid 5’s?

Thoughts on working with already painted Hardie versus painting it after the fact? Trying to decide which route to go and need some pros and cons. Thanks!

Hello,

We've only worked with it already painted, so unfortunately can't give you any pros/cons for painting it after the fact. I apologize.

sorry, but i love the color and effect of the doors (but maybe it is the photo)? From the HAAS website, it seemed to me as though these are painted by Haas, and then you matched the rest of the house? Or, did you start with a certain door in a certain color and custom paint it the SW Tricorn black? These almost look like wood, which would be the effect I'm looking for without the maintenance. Thank you for being so generous with your answers!

Hello,

I believe the doors are part wood/part metal. We had it come out in just base white and we painted it SW Tricorn Black. Hope that helps!

1. Modern FarmhouseThis is the most popular exterior photo of the year so far. And it wasn’t even a part of a featured story that would have given it a boost. Houzzers are still wild about modern farmhouse style. Design elements like porches, gooseneck barn lights, metal roofs and barn doors have been reassembled into a new look that nods to American nostalgia.
