Farmhouse Addition

The form of the addition is evocative of a traditional Pennsylvania bank barn structure. A second floor deck, carved out of the copper 'forebay’, is covered with a glass skylight that empties via chain downspouts to river rock drainage beds below.

Builder: Karl Snyder

We base our design work on details and product available through Revere Copper, though I can't say where the contractor purchased the material for this job. The copper does not require maintenance. It's appearance does change over time. It starts shiny like a penny and oxidizes to the bronze color you see in the photos rather quickly. Over many years it will develop a green patina.

Windows are manufacturer's standard dark brown aluminum cladding (Pella, Architect Series), and all other materials, including stone, copper and cedar trim have a natural finish. The only actual paint color is the white trim on the existing farmhouse. Hope that helps!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The building-out bonus. There's a valuable bonus to building out rather than up or down. Often the groundwork, concrete and framing for the addition can be under way for at least two weeks before the construction moves into your existing home. That buys you more time to pack up and prepare for the rest of the project. If the scope of work is limited to the addition, this also means you can usually keep the balance of your home furnished and functional, meaning you won't have to pay for a temporary move.More: How to dig down for more room
Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: Additions With Attitude
On the opposite side, the roof wraps down onto the wall plane (again a thin wrapper).Stretching outward, the proportion reads as a barn, housing the new master suite and living room, but the architects have pushed the definition of what a barn can look like. They’ve indicated the historical reference to a barn in the cutout deck by imitating a barn’s forebay on the second floor, but these are subtle devices. Proportion is the key player in this addition.Lateral additions have the benefit of providing a new perspective on the site; reorienting and opening up the living spaces to views and light is often the primary goal of this type of addition. It’s important to also consider the exterior spaces this type of addition creates. Consider using the architecture to shield winds, gather sunlight and reinforce interior-exterior connections. Barns have always been positioned to do this on farmsteads.

While I dont want this much metal exterior, I do like the use of the a metal product that has this finish or the product that creates a rusted surface over time. I would hope the metal would be less than half of the area. I would also hope that it could keep costs down versus the stone.
