Roofing - It looks like you have a metal roof on the house. Is there also metal roofing on the long walkway in the backyard?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Amber and Jeremy detached their garage, which allowed them to build a large porch and oversize glass doors on the front of the house where the garage would have been. "Instead of a traditional backyard, we ended up with a large (by city standards) private courtyard in the front of the house that our open floor plan virtually spills into," says Jeremy. The open layout allows the entire family to enjoy indoor and outdoor living spaces, all within view of one another.
