    Unfortunately, we don't have the paint colors on file but do find that the simplicity of the colors gives the home a timeless appeal.

    The portico measures 11'-10" x 6' with a 1'-8" thick fypon crown - it does a great job emphasizing the focal point of the home.
  • Linda Kidd
    Thank you for the information. My house (in Virginia) is almost identical. We are constructing a new portico and your design is the inspiration.

    The landscaping was done after our project was completed, and although we agree that it looks beautiful we don't have the details on the plant life.

    This home is a standard center hall colonial, a classic design that nearly any architect should be able to replicate for you. Good luck on your new home!

    This home is a classic center hall colonial, and is fairly common in the Northeast and Midwest. This style of home should be fairly easy for a local architect to replicate and find a home of appropriate square footage for your needs and available building space. Unfortunately, we specialize only in remodeling in the Chicago area and do not have anyone that we could recommend to you in South Florida. You may want to contact a Design/Build Homebuilder or an Architect to get started on your new home. Good luck!

    The owners of this home did their landscaping after our renovation was complete, so unfortunately I do not have the name of those lovely plants. I'm sorry that I couldn't be of more help to you.

    The trim we selected and used for this project was chosen to be a good fit for its scale and proportion to the rest of the home and porch. If you are doing a similar project for your home, you may want to consult your architect or local supplier to help you determine what would be the right fit for your project. Best of luck on your new porch.

    Unfortunately we don't have a picture of just the garge, but these photos show an overall view with the garage as seen from the front, and the back entry photos allow you a narrow view to the left of the door where you can see the garage door.

    Thanks for the compliment! We agree that the portico really enhances this home, but unfortunately we are not at liberty to share the blueprints for this renovation. Perhaps a local architect could help you draw up something similar that would work well for your home.

    Hi christopher1! Although this is not your home, it is a beautiful one and Normandy Remodeling did a great job on the renovation. We are excited to see what your home will look like after your own personal renovations.

    One recommendation that we have, which has nothing to do with the door size, is that you actually replace your existing shutters with shutters that are properly fitted for your windows.

    We are not sure if your current home has shutters similar to this one, but if they do, these shutters are just a tad small. Shutters should typically measure out to half the size of the window and the proper sizing truly makes a difference! We also think that installing functional, authentic shutters with hand-forged hardware may enhance your curb appeal a bit more than vinyl shutters.

    Below are some pictures of our shutters for inspiration.

    I've looked through our notes on this project, but unfortunately was unable to locate any information about the shingles on this home. I'm sorry that I couldn't provide the information you were looking for, and wish you the best of luck in finding a roofing material that works for your home.

    So glad you like the home! To answer your question about the porch roof, it's actually pitched forward very slightly so the water would run off the front. There is no gutter on the small porch roof. Hope this helps answer your question!

    The landscaping for this home was executed after our home renovation work was completed, so unfortunately we do not have any information about the plants they selected. So sorry we don't have the details you're looking for, and hopefully a local garden center can help you identify the trees you're seeing in the photo.

    Due to the age of this project, we have archived the blueprints and unfortunately no longer have the details available about the size of the trim. However, I can tell you that the trim we selected and used for this project was chosen to be a good fit for its scale and proportion to the rest of the home and porch. If you are doing a similar project for your home, you may want to consult your architect or local supplier to help you determine what would be the right fit for your project. Best of luck on your new porch.
