Sambo Housez!,, oh, please... - The historical connotation of the term Sambo is extremely racists, therefore, unless you're still living in Mzzz Scarlet days - why stoop so low?

Charcoal gray, black, white, taupe, and even dark navy would look nice with Honeysuckle.

Is this a metal roof supported on open framing? If so, what gage is the metal and what style of fastening is used? Thanks!

It is a tin roof, but I have absolutely no clue on the technical questions. There is a shot in this blog post I did years ago that has a picture of more of the roof:

Porch flooring - I love the flooring on the porch. Do you mind sharing what it is and is it durable in the weather?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This is my neighbor Lily's house. I blogged about her Sambo-designed addition, pining about seeing the inside, and she saw the post and invited me over. This is the original dairy barn part of the house, with a new tin roof added to it.
Niche Interiors added this to Iconic Armchairs that Stand the Test of Time
Eames molded rockers were designed in 1948 by Charles and Ray Eames. I especially love these for nurseries.
Becky Harris added this to Rocking Chairs: Not Just for Nana
This shot of my neighbor's house with the Samuel Mockbee addition is one of my favorite spots. The part of the house you see is the original dairy barn structure, and the modern molded rockers let visitors know this house tour is going to be anything but typical.
Another project that inspires me for you is my neighbor Lily's house. The original house is a dairy barn, and the modern addition was designed by Samuel Mockbee. I love her groovy rockers on the porch.
These cheerful chairs make my neighbor Lilly's front porch so inviting. They also hint at the unexpected modern interior and addition on this old converted dairy barn.
A little bit of the color goes a long way. Two Eames rockers flourish against the dark background of this home.
