I didn't realize until today, that there are not many people from Alaska contributing on this website ... maybe because most everyone has already built their homes and didn't know about the help one could get from this site ... oh well, their loss ...

The columns were finished today and we now have concerns about the design. It may be that we need to see them with the stone, which will add four inches to the base size, not sure, not sure! I just think they look out of scale, also wonder about the color. They are currently base coated with white sealer but they will be dark brown or black when completed. We may have to paint them to see if that changes anything.

The design called for four posts to be on top of a tapered stone base. The base frame you see will be four inches bigger when the stone is applied. We think the four posts on top appear out of scale for the column. We don't want to spend any more money, say on round columns, which may look very nice, so we have to work with what we have.We are thinking about the following options:

1. Do nothing until the stone is installed to see if the scale works then.

2. Move the four posts together to create one square 8"x8" post in the center of each base.

3. Move the four posts together slightly to reduce the space between them to about three inches.


Other opinions are always helpful, let us know what you think.

Depending on what size stone you use and the color of the columns, it should all fit into place visually.  If you use medium boulder or stacked stone size and a medium brown/green color will make everything blend.  Are you going to paint the window frames the same color as the columns or accent with shuttlers to tie them in?
