Bright / Leapley Architecture Review - CDA 

Interior and Exterior Punch Review 2/16/2016
We would suggest painting the louver white to match the trim color
We typically use a solid wood threshold on custom entry doors vs the metal. The sill needs to overhang the vertical face of the transitional riser. There is room to cope in a tapered oak threshold that overhangs the face of stone by 1/2" and dog ears around the vertical stile of the sidelights. The sill will run under casing outside each sidelight.
A huge "Wow" on the Kitchen!
We assume the caulking and "connections" are not complete at the frieze to brick, frieze to bird board and rafter tails. Add continuous 1/4" round vinyl molding between the bottom lip of the angled bird board and the face of the upper frieze. Caulk/seal top and bottom.
The inside connection joint of the fascia and the soffit needs a piece of molding to close the gap after it is sealed then caulked. This will trap blown water and moisture and Ned's to be completed aesthetically
We are assuming that you are adding a mantel or other decorative feature over the fireplace opening. A simple cypress beam works well to give some depth to face and separate the TV zone. It can be supported by hidden steel angle bracket or exposed brick corbel.
Add 1/2" vinyl astragal molding to face of beam. Align top of molding with the bottom of frieze on the master exterior wall. This creates a proper separation of the entablature. This molding will run on the outside at all porches.
Add 1/2" vinyl 1/2 round molding over the Windows. The bottom of the 1/2 round molding will be set at the separation of the jamb casing and the frieze band. This also hides the slight mis alignments that occur between casing and frieze at 45 corner and also provides simple detailing.
This is an amazing project. Congrats to the team for the quality craftsmanship, beautiful interiors and wonderful spaces. CDA is proud to be a part of the team and can't wait to see the finished product. Joe & Cliff
