The porch posts were custom fabricated by Kevin, on site, using CertainTeed Restoration Millwork. The composite decking is Trex Transcend in Gravel Path (gray), picture framed in Vintage Lantern (dark brown). The color contrast not only gives the deck a defined look, but is a safety feature that allows folks to see the edge of the deck and know where to step down. The area in front of the porch will be raised with permeable driveway material (and eventually crushed slate) and sloped away from the porch, creating a much smaller step. The jumbo j-block on the porch gable (and over the garage door) will include decorative fixtures with LED lighting (coming soon).
The soffit, fascia and siding on the carport and east wall has also been completed. The ceilings of the porches and carport are CertainTeed beaded T2 soffit, which looks like traditional wainscoting (see porch pic above.) We have used this product and the Invisi-vent soffit for many years with excellent, low maintenance results.
The weather has been cooperative for siding. We went from a cold winter to a hot pre-summer, and back to spring with more seasonal temperatures. The color of the siding is called seagrass, a pastel green, resembling sage. It blends well with the surroundings and complements the neighbors homes, which are also pastel colors. We selected a pentagon for the gable end vent - - this one is faux (doesn't vent), with a 10/12 pitch to match the roof.
