The New American Remodeled Home entrance

At the entrance, light stone veneer by Environmental StoneWorks complements the light, natural look of the main walls and roof. The same veneer is used inside on the great-room fireplace wall. A custom louver-look garage door from Clopay provides a color counterpoint and operates via a LiftMaster system that can be controlled from a smartphone. Other coordinated elements include the louvered shutters shading the windows, the louvered entry gate doors, and the main entry door from Simpson Door Co.
