I am not really sure how it will work to wash the bricks with semi transparent stain.

It is always a good idea to try it out on a sample or consult with a local painting contractor.

Take Care,
Dan

No, it's not actually using a semi-transparent stain, the technique just (I think) mimics the look of a semi-transparent stain over cedar. I would definitely get a professional, especially because the technique of lime washing is so complicated. All of the examples I've seen on brick are much lighter, like a white washing. But I think the warm gray would be really beautiful. It wouldn't look as flat and one dimensional as painting the brick would. Then I could have the shed dormer vinyl replaced with cedar shingles with the coastal gray (or similar). Very exciting we move in less than five weeks. Let the renos begin!

I believe that the contractor used a Simpson door here.

Sarabue- I'm taking a guess...in the right it looks like roses, in the left MAYBE morning glory or trumpet vine. Good luck!

The gate and fence was built by the general contractor, RGN Construction.
You can find their HOUZZ page under Seattle General Contractors.
Thanks for asking,
Dan

Hi jodellayers,

I am sorry I do not know the the name of this plant.
The homeowner selected her own plantings and they are beautiful.

Thanks for asking !

The home owner selected the paint color for the exterior of this house as well as the interiors. She did a great job !

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Discover an Ancient Portal Design Full of Meaning
A quintessentially American version of the moon gate relies on the iconic picket fence and arbor for its design. With a classical arch made into a circle by a picketed gate, the traditionally styled American moon gate is thinner, more two dimensional and fresher than its Far Eastern antecedent.More: 12 Inspiring Garden GatesPhotos: Browse thousands of gate designs
Laura Gaskill added this to Your May Checklist for a Smooth-Running Home
8. Increase curb appeal. Make your house stand out with a big change, like a bold new front door color, an arbor with roses or new porch lights. Or, for a quick spruce-up, swap out the doormat and add a few pots of flowers.See more ways to boost curb appeal

The alignment of the gate keyhole gives meaning to an otherwise ordinary door punctuated with great color
