    Can you provide information on the stone work? Great look. Is it stone veneer?
  • richardwest
    Can you confirm the height of the doors once more? If they are 4'6" wide, I calculate that the height is 7'6" and 8''6" with the transom. I'm not trying to second guess you, just trying to confirm the numbers.

    Mr. Norris, you wrote July 25, 2016 that you were considering developing a house plan (hopefully with the exterior features of the Stone Residence) to offer for sale because you had received so many requests. Have you made a decision?

    Hi Norris Architecture,

    Can i ask your opinion regarding my rotten window box posted here in discussion with the following link:

    I did not know that stone veneer will fall off in time. I plan to live in my house til retirement (that's 15 yrs from now, hopefully).

    I am now in huge dilemma on how to proceed with repair and augmentation of this rotten window box.

  • beckman390
    Would you happen to know where in Tennessee the stone came from? This is my wife's dream home... and I would love to know who we can source the stone from.

    While I appreciate the interest in this home it is custom designed to the very unique lifestyle of the individuals who commissioned me to design their home. The plans are not for sale but my services as an owners representative, project manager, and architect are always available.
  • rbcola
    I guess it doesn't hurt to ask......but, do people realize someone paid you a professional fee to spend hours with them putting together the home they ended up with. People can buy books, magazines, shop on line for ideas and then take what you've kindly shared to do it. I've just spent a year working with an architect and you have handled everyone's complimentary requests like a pro.

    Stone or brick on the first floor since it will extend to the pool deck and exposed to the elements and some form of chlorine. The second floor will need good drainage and water proofing. use a membrane roof overlaid with a system by a company called Schluter. This will likely need to be a tile floor.

    Here is a good explanation: http://edeck.com/ipe-decking/ipe-wood/
    I am not sure about this location but you can use a sealer with Ipe wood that will give it a glossier finish and help the brown color last longer without fading.

    The total sqft is approximately 11,000sqft. There is a lot more than meets the eye and it isn't a simple rectangle so specific dimensions are complicated. The overall extent of the home is about 170 feet from front to rear and 120 side to side.

    Asphalt shingle should never be installed lower than a 3/12 slope. This is a metal standing seam roof which can be as low as 1.5/12 some even say 1/12. This roof is at a 2/12 slope. If installed properly there should be no reason for it to leak. There are a variety of things that can go wrong if it isn't installed properly like the underlayment, seam joints, and flashing against the upper wall.

  • hiltony
    Hi - mine is also standing seam metal...not asphalt. Same pitch. Getting different advise from every roofer - of course they all want to rip it off and start anew...it is only 2 yrs old:(:( thanks for your time/reply!!

    These are 8'-0" doors with a transom. The trick inside is integrating the top of the door casing into the crown. I love bringing my doors and windows as close to the ceiling as possible. It brings a flood of light into the room.

    As I have tried to explain in other posts this is a field stone that has a lot of variation, you almost have to hand pick the pallets to get the color you want. All of the quarries sell out of Crab Orchard Tennessee. I think that stone was bought from Waldo's Stone 931-456-9138 and you have to be careful that your mason uses the stone with its natural unbroken face, because the inside can have wild bright pinks and yellows.

    Tennessee Fieldstone is just Tennessee Fieldstone. There is no official color, its just what ever they pull out of the ground. You can ask that they eliminate all of the pinks, like we did, or you ask that they pick more of the brown or more of the gray, but this is really just a matter of an individuals judgment. This is the reality and beauty of dealing with a quarry and natural stone. Mother nature tends to be a little hard to control. It is also very important that you tell the mason to lay it in its full form and not break or chip it, because the inside has wild colors of strong yellows and pinks.

    The same look certainly but not the same feel. So much of architecture Is about the experience. When you open those doors the inside and outside just flow together in a way that an open window set of the floor could never achieve. The porch becomes an extension of the inside. Even a few leaves carried in by the breeze adds to the charm.
  • serenbe
    I understand--because I was feeling that flow too as I experienced your magnificent porch, and the feeling was totally different when in my mind I tested replacing the doors with windows sets. I had not thought of the charm of leaves, but "Wow!" Another detail to bring awe. . . . My husband and I are planning this year to build a new home--a cottage--and it is designed with a porch across the front that uses windows, which hasn't been evoking any soulfulness for me. Your porch, however, took my breath away. So now I'm exploring how our plan can be modified to incorporate the stone and a similar porch, which will become the best features of the home. I appreciate your confirming that the doors are critical to achieving the same feel. (A big challenge is accommodating the 46 ft. since we presently have 36 ft.) . . . Thanks for sharing your great design through this website.

    The front is 46'-0" wide. I take it you realize the importance of proportion. Good for you. Also the porch is 12'-0" deep from the front of the columns. A usable porch depth is important.

    this came directly from a supplier in crab orchard. There are several suppliers there next to the interstate that have the same stone. This is medium Crab Orchard Field stone. We worked very closely with the mason to get the pattern right. Their tendency is to want to chip off the surface to shape the stone so there was definitely a learning curve for them not to do that and get them to understand that we wanted the natural surface.

    They where custom made in a local shop. Quite often it is not much more expensive to get custom doors made than it is to buy them from a national supplier. Plus you are supporting your local economy and improving your carbon footprint.

    I believe they are 16" square and 9'-0" tall. Always make sure you align the shaft up with the entablature/beam/rake and allow the capital to extend out past.

    This home was built 3 years ago So it's numbers are probably not relevant. Also I do not want to say what this home cost. However if you were to build this home today it would probably cost somewhere between 200 to 300 per sqft in the Nashville market. Construction costs vary around the country and in cities vs rural areas.

    The minimum I would do any porch is 8'-0" clear. This is to make it useful and if it is useful it feels better. 10'-0" is nicer. As for the proportions there are so many things to take into account like the height of the porch rack, this one is 8'-0", the height of the rest of the house, the amount of roof above, the height off of the ground, are the columns round or square, what is the style of the house. Are they tapered because you are going for a craftsman effect or are they round and that is the entasis. What is the spacing of the columns and do the doors/windows align with the space between the columns? What are the details of the column, you can't see it well in this photo but there is a neck mold about 8" down from the capital. If you want me to take a look at your elevation I can do that for a relatively small fee. email me at brad@norrisarchitecture.com

    12". Also important is to keep the capitals simple and make sure that you always line the beam or entablature up with the body of the column and not the outer edge of the capital.
