Cedar shakes versus vinyl shake siding? - Wondering if you have used vinyl shake siding in other projects and if so, how you would compare them with the cedar shakes. Love the look of this side entrance way with covered porch. Lovely design.

I actually hate hardi plank cement siding. It looks nothing like cedar. The smooth boards are ok, but nothing to swoon over.
I hate old fashioned vinyl siding, but the newer ones seem to be different. Am I wrong? The cost is similar to hardi, so clearly it is different.

Thank you for your question. We're not sure where the best place to purchase Ipe would be for your location. However, take a look at http://ironwoods.com. The Ipe decking in the picture was left unfinished .. however, we're sure it looks different today (7 years later). When left unfinished Ipe wood turns to a silver gray, especially when near the ocean.

Is the inside of the door also painted black? - Love this entry - great job! I would love a black exterior door with mullions...but my interior doors are white. Just wondering if the door is also painted black on the inside, or white? If white, how do you get the mullions painted successfully? The grille on my new door pops off for painting. Thanks!

Thanks, I've never seen it before. How does one paint removable grilles effectively (so the white doesn't get on the black,etc?)

We've never specified a door with removable muntins (grilles). The doors we specify are typically true divided light doors.

Thank you for your question. Generically speaking this is Ipe wood decking. It is available through many lumber distributors like Coastal Forest Products.

This is Cabot's semi-solid "Nantucket White" stain.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Debra Prinzing added this to Garden Design Essentials: Proportion and Scale
The home's exterior millwork is substantial, lending prominence to the overhanging porch roof. The support post blends with the overhead beam and probably measures 10 or 12 inches. The designer has treated the support post as a piece of architecture rather than as an afterthought, giving it an important role in the overall composition.
