Anybody have any pictures or suggestions for a detail that I could use over a front door which I just built a Portico over with an eliptical beadboard ceiling??

The original plan was to just side it with the Hardieplank thats on the rest of the house, but I saw a couple of loneframers sunburst details and it got me thinking.

Can you even do a sunburst with Hardie as its not tapered??

As much as I would like to take credit for the sunbursts on my thread, they actually belong to Tomstruble.:notworthyI do however, have a couple ideas that you can build from.:thumbsup:

I really like that entry in the second pic. Very elegant. :thumbup:
Thanks. The other pic is the closet that houses my HVAC equipment. I didn't expect rave reviews on that one, but threw it in for the hell of it.:whistling

Second pic is very nice, but the scale is too large for this project. Its only a single 3'0 door with a 6 foot elipse over it. I'll grab a pic tommorrow and post it to stir your imagination

It'll get the rave when the half-moon shows up. :whistling
Yeah, I did drop the ball on that one didn't I? As soon as we get a dry weekend, the stucco will get painted. Maybe that will inspire me to get crackin' on the outhouse door.:laughing: You have my word, it will happen.:thumbsup:

Beotch, say what? That's where I live.:mad: I was always told to buy the biggest POS on the block, so I did.:w00t: It appraised for twice what I paid for it before I remodeled the kitchen, bath and installed vinyl siding. I can live with that.:thumbup:

No offense taken. I found a small house with a large garage in a good neighborhood for a great price. It was a godsend to me as I was going through an ugly divorce with limited funds.
I had the 2500 sq. ft. dreamhouse that I designed and built myself. It was the worst 2 1/2 years of my life. Funny how you find peace and happiness in the most unlikely places.:thumbsup:

I wish my garage was half that size. Tired of wheeling the machines around in there when I want to use them.

I think if you paint the stucco, the house will really come together. Some cultured stone over the stucco on the front might be an idea as well.

Painter is coming tomorrow to splash on some paint. I'd love to do the whole 1st floor with ledgestone, but it's not fiscally responsible at the present time.:sad:

into a thing of beauty

architrave? [is that rite TomR?]

Your words are much appreciated Tom.;) This project has taken the back burner for awhile, due to the passing of my father. I still have a few details that I want to get completed before winter sets in. I also owe Tin a crescent moon before it can be deemed complete.:whistling
