Spring at The Gray Cottage

  1. JudyAnn says:

    Did you purchase your plans for this home. I love the exterior components, the style, the choice of sidings and stone…..looking for plans with a first floor master suite option

    • Abbie J. says:

      We custom designed our home with a local architect. πŸ™‚ Our master is on the first floor and has its own roofline. It is a vaulted 16ft ceiling. πŸ™‚

  2. Summer says:

    Your house is absolutely beautiful! Would you share the spec on the stone that was used on the exterior?

  3. Donna Kirkpatrick says:

    What is the name of your stonework?

  4. SLyon says:

    I love it!

    I really like the roof shingles. Which color are they?

    Thanks! ❀️

  5. Chelsea Nipper says:

    I love your house! I am building a house and have chosen board and batten and the gauntlet grey color you have. Our contractor keeps telling us the board and batten will warp or bubble with our dark exterior color. Have you had any problems with this?
    Thank you!

    • Abbie J. says:

      That’s wonderful – congrats! We used hardiplank for the siding, board and batten, etc….we have had ZERO issues with warping or bubbling. We used Sherwin Williams paint so make sure to use quality paint for the exterior as well!

    Could you tell the Distributor and name of the colors on the exterior of your cottage. Thank you

    • Abbie J. says:

      Hey — It is paint from Sherwin Williams — they are all listed in the exterior blog post – just search for it on my blog πŸ™‚

  8. Brianne Margolin says:

    Could you please tell me the spacing on your battens (measuring center to center) and the width of each batten? Thank you in advance!

    • Abbie J. says:

      I’m so sorry – I don’t have this information handy and don’t have time to go out and measure!:)

  9. Beki says:

    Is the railing on the porch area custom made or purchased from a supplier? If a supplier, do you know what brand? I know what I want but our normal supplier doesnt get my vision πŸ™‚

    • Abbie J. says:

      It is custom, built on-site by our builder. Just normal 1×4’s turned to face out! πŸ™‚

  11. Elizabeth says:

    What stone color and brand did you use for the bottom? And what color and brand is your roof?

  12. Justine says:


    I’m so inspired by your color choice. It’s beautiful! Our number one choice for our exterior is gauntlet gray with snowbound trim! Quick question: is your gauntlet get diluted at all or is it as is?

    Thank you!!
