Shanny that looks great. I used to work for Jeld-Wen many years ago. It's nice to see that they are still selling quality products.
Do you happen to have a blog that details the project?
No...my son said the same thing (computer science). I have no idea how to even do that stuff.
And ...maybe I don't want to be that much in the public eye.
This was sort of a "bucket list" thing.
This was supposed to be the master bedroom, but we decided with the economy etc. that maybe we would just do a knee wall and bump the loft up 3' and put an upstairs room. Its small but we have two baths, and a walkout basement.
I also wanted to put painted rustic metal roofing on it, but its a west coast thing and way outside of our meager budget (both materials and shipping)..so we were stuck with asphalt shingles. I used a charcoal colored metal on the porch roof, and clear polycarbonate panels were used over the windows and slider to let more light into the living room (until I can build some nice kalwall light panels) . The porch header beams were chainsawed and adzed out of some white pine wind falls. The rafters were all reclaimed out of a project we tore down two winters ago. The house logs are white cedar.
A stone fireplace would have been great....but it takes up a lot of space.
I really like it. It's mixed media, small footprint, and unique. Some of my favorite qualities in a home.
At least seventy five percent of the time we are putting in green colored windows. Most of it depends on your stain and log.
Hi , Green is probably the most popular color but Black with a black metal roof is very rich looking. We also use black metal for the spindles in the handrailing.
