The siding and eaves/fascia are Benjamin Moore colors. The siding is Graphite (#1603) and the eaves and fascia are Gunmetal (#1602). The stucco is the best match for Benjamin Moore color Timberwolf (#1600). The door is Benjamin Moore's "Tequila Lime" #2028-30, semi gloss.

The shape of the angled porch-roof, sets the tone for a truly modern entryway. This protective covering makes a dramatic statement, as it hovers over the front door. The blue-stone terrace conveys even more interest, as it gradually moves upward, morphing into steps, until it reaches the porch.
The multicolored tan stone, used for the risers and retaining walls, is proportionally carried around the base of the house. Horizontal sustainable-fiber cement board replaces the original vertical wood siding, and widens the appearance of the facade. The color scheme — blue-grey siding, cherry-wood door and roof underside, and varied shades of tan and blue stone — is complimented by the crisp-contrasting black accents of the thin-round metal columns, railing, window sashes, and the roof fascia board and gutters.
This project is a stunning example of an exterior, that is both asymmetrical and symmetrical. Prior to the renovation, the house had a bland 1970s exterior. Now, it is interesting, unique, and inviting.

Ranch Lite is the second iteration of Hufft Projects’ renovation of a mid-century Ranch style house. Much like its predecessor, Modern with Ranch, Ranch Lite makes strong moves to open up and liberate a once compartmentalized interior.
The clients had an interest in central space in the home where all the functions could intermix. This was accomplished by demolishing the walls which created the once formal family room, living room, and kitchen. The result is an expansive and colorful interior.
As a focal point, a continuous band of custom casework anchors the center of the space. It serves to function as a bar, it houses kitchen cabinets, various storage needs and contains the living space’s entertainment center.
Whether you are coming or going, this foyer is welcoming and the narrow entrance table adds a minimalistic design feel to the space.
The front entry includes a built-in bench and storage for the family's shoes. Photographer: Tyler Chartier
