Love the stone and wood columns - is the roof a modified shed roof design or is it barreled?
It's a curved metal roof running back into the standard roof pitch. It could be referred to as barreled as well. We should have some closer up images of this detail with the rest of the home images.
Love the low sloping rooflines, not a fan of the 45 degree roof support posts.
Low profile hip roof, house hugs landscape
like the pitch on the roof with lots of different roof line
charcoal roof stone and light wood
this has pretty good low pitch roof if height is an issue. I like the idea foa big entrance but not the cost of a curved roof; brett was saying that the low pitch is ok, but depends on how the building looks
