Exterior paneled entryway

Recommended Posts

Would like some advice - working on a traditional two story colonial style spec home. The builder wants a paneled entry with pediment roof (no dentil) supported by two columns and recessed front door. Considering an round/arch top entry door with a corresponding arch in the face of the pediment. Market here is moving away from the sleek modern boxes to cozy traditional elevations but with a little less gingerbread. 

 

What's best way to accomplish this?

Do you have images of what you are wanting to model?

SOMETHING SIMILAR TO THIS BUT THE DOOR WOULD BE RECESSED AND THE AREA AROUND THE DOOR WOULD BE WOOD PANELING INSTEAD OF BRICK OR SIDING. 590e97dfbeda7_Pedimentsketch.thumb.jpg.ba4d29f10c3941f900b420b4a491378d.jpg

Assuming I will need to use polyline solids to create the paneling. Just didn't know if there was a simpler solution. Not your typical exterior finish.

Depends on the paneling.

 

Just quickly drew this. Used Cabinets for the paneling.

Eric, I loved the use of cabinets for the panel - never thought of it.  Thanks for the tip.

Looks great - so you just used cabinet panels, columns and added them to your elevation?

Solids. Took just a few minutes to do by eye, one half, then copy reflect to get the other side.

Basically, yes. Full height cabinets set to 3/4' depth, and panels sized as needed. A solid for the arched ceiling, and solids for the fan in the gable

Thanks Ross. Definitely not a style I'm familiar with.
