The tin roof was not painted. It was left silver - although it looks a little blue in the evening light.

Thanks for your question.

I want a roof like this so bad. My husband is concerned it will be really loud when it rains. Its it possible to put a tin roof like this over the existing composite roof?

The home owner tells me that they were custom mixed. They're not sure where you could find these exact colors. Thanks so much for your question.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Sarah Greenman: What do you love about your community?Mimi Kauffman: Halfway is the nicest community of people we've ever known, and we've lived in a lot of places. People here take time. You can't go shopping. You can't be a spectator. I can't be as expansive in an urban space as I can here. In the city, you're so busy being busy that you can forget who you are. You have to have space to let your thoughts come through. Eric Kauffman: Halfway is a great place. And I love everything about our house.SG: What drew you to this home? MK: I helped a friend move here in 1988. Eric and I returned every once in a while with our trailer for vacations. We came back in 1998 after having lived in Mexico for a while. We arrived on July 5 and were moved in by mid-August. We looked at a lot of places, but they all had acreage. We wanted something manageable.

17. An Oregon Cottage With 21 Flavors of ColorThis Northwest cottage has color on its most appealing architectural details. Red trim and a soft blue door perfectly coordinate with the flowers on the front porch. A purple and green kitchen and a soft blue bedroom offer only a taste of the cheerful color palette inside.
