This is a house that might just tempt me out of the city to the suburbs. It's superb. It's hard to choose a favorite part, but that backsplash is to die for.

Great inspiration piece, Frank, Turquoise in strategic spots is great in a garden because it incorporates the colors of the sky and the foliage. It can be the finishing touch that ties together hardscape and landscape. I also love the pairing of terra cotta (the perfect neutral) and almost any shade of blue - but especially turquoise. It looks fantastic in tiles of all materials in water features and swimming pools, too.

Beautiful! This is a great color to work with - it brightens up the space and also adds a very soothing element. Love this!

That's a good question @risris! The other major considerations for cost are roofing (based on slope) and insulation/venting. The author has done a great job of addressing both these items. Designing for a conventional shingled roof (4:12 or steeper) with sufficient depth in the structure for batt or blown-in insulation and a vented air space above gives a very economical design and construction (identical or lower cost than a gable). The cost would only increase if the slope decreases - necessitating a low or flat-roofing application, or if the joists are very shallow - thus requiring rigid or spray-foam insulation.

As an Engineer, designer and contractor, we love the shed roof for simplicity, versatility, durability and architectural longevity.

Nice looking structures!

I have a house with five shed roofs - all low slope and metal clad. It looks somewhat like the last picture in form. Our problem has been how to properly ventilate the two sheds that join the taller structure. We'll be replacing one roof this spring because of spongy wood caused by moisture built-up.

Regarding the atrium; one can't always afford to strip it down to the unspoiled, virgin beginnings and start over. If they needed indoor space, it was a better decision to move ahead and refine what was there into updated, usable space. The finished product makes use of the kitchen/living/dining space nicely.

I do think all-white interiors always come off as unfinished and unimaginative, though. My only criticism would be that the ceiling would have been nice left in it's natural wood finish. I think it would have added a subtle contrast to the white everywhere else.
