Does the standing seam metal make sounds - Such a beautiful job! We are having our architect builder do a similar finish. The builder says as the sun hits the metal it can make noise? Have you noticed this? Any thoughts - concerns?

hey thanks! i appreciate that....the metal should not make noise. it does happen in rare circumstances. be sure it is not attached on all edges. (follow mfg recommendations) - it may pop if it is not allowed to expand and contract with temperature

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Hill added this to Concrete Block Style
Also in the Pacific Northwest, this house incorporates concrete masonry units selectively. Outside CMU walls extend from the house like arms; in this case a seating nook is created near the entrance. Inside ...
John Hill added this to 9 Cooling Rooftop Gardens
Here we can see a green roof poking above the cantilevered roof in the foreground. We also can see railings set back on the right. A closer look ...
Josh McCullar | SMBW added this to Great Compositions: The Language of Walls
Walls can sometimes become compartments at the edges of rooms. The roof appears to float above a projected metal-clad wall from an otherwise glassy pavilion. Similarly, a masonry wall extends and thickens to allow an inset wood bench marking the entrance.

Proportion of horizontals to verticals. Low profile. Cantilevered roofline but would be better in wood. Don't like the concrete and metal siding -- it would be better in wood. Mix of material, especially window beam and casement.
