Multiple Family Suites Traditional Patio, Baltimore

The client wanted us to design a new custom house on a tight suburban site that would emulate the style of homes found in their native Ireland. Although they were empty nesters, the home was designed with complete bedroom suites for all of their children’s growing families to come for extended visits. The centerpiece of the home is an open gathering space that links kitchen, family room, breakfast room, and sunroom. The lower level of the home boasts 10’ ceilings for the authentic Irish bar, gaming areas, a home theater, exercise room, a wine cellar, and a large train room to showcase an extensive train set and collection of model trains.

A cold climate will promote cracking in almost any surface! With that being said, if the stone is set on a concrete slab, expansion joints are placed in the patio if required, and proper mortar is used, then the possibility of cracking will be minimized. Go for it!

What is the name of the random irregular flagstone? I'd like to see if I can find it in VA. Thanks!

Well, this is the thing, we really want to know prices. We don't want the name of the owners who did the homes, we want prices. I think its private enough.

We suggest that you contact a local landscape contractor to give you an estimate. The cost of projects vary from different regions, year to year, and materials. A price from a project done a few years back would not give you the best estimate you are looking for.

The roof is slate – it is a blend of slate from three different quarries in three states.

okay this is my dream house. I absolutely love the colors. I am going to paint our house similar. My question is what color is the front doors and garage? You can't see them in the pictures.

My guess would be it is a west highland white terrier.

The stucco has an integral color that was custom made. W always suggest that clients have a large scale mock up made (48"x48") so they can truly judge colors.
