Paint used on the posts and the beams? - Hello, Great color contrast. What color paint was used on the steel posts and beams? Also, does the top of the roof panels need to be painted or was it left galvanized ? thank you

Thank you for your interest in Nick's work. There is no paint on the steel posts, beams or on the galvanized metal roof.

What are these metal posts called and where can I buy them - I am looking for metal posts that will rust. Where can I get them and what do I ask for? Thanks!

The posts are Structural Steel eye beams that you can get at a steel yard.
thanks for your interest!

What is the material on roof? Live in South Florida- lots of rain in summer. Will it rust? Like to hang ceiling fan as in this photo. I love this look. I am going to look for a side view- ours will be seen more from the side as we step out of the door to look to the left and see it vs. this view. Thank you.

Eggleston Farkas Architects
If you really are considering doing it yourself, there are engineering issues involved. The beams and connections need to be designed to deal with the weight being carried, as well as any shear forces (wind & earthquake - depending on where you live). The roof panels are also subject to uplift from the wind. You'd be surprised by how much harm these things can do.

corrugated metal exterior - Does it serve a specific function or is it just aesthetic? How would that application work in a colder climate? Overall just a beautiful use of space!!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Hill added this to The Lower-Cost, Low-Tech Modern Home
The canopy shades not only the patio but also the large glass walls next to it. The primarily solid wrapper of corrugated metal gives way to a glazed expanse that is quite modern. Beyond the open living/dining/kitchen area is visible, as you'll see next.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to 11 Ways to Hurricane Proof Your House
3. Design for uplift. Hurricane-force winds can pull buildings apart. Roof structures are particularly prone to being sent flying, a danger to everyone and everything around. So using the correct, and in many places code-mandated, construction fastening system is a must. From tie-downs to lateral anchors, from hold-downs to embedded connectors, the choice of fastener will vary by location and type of construction.

Metal soffit is just the bottom of the matching metal roof. There could be a concern about walking on the roof to shovel it off once or twice each winter, based on the snow and don't forget you want to design and build for low to no maintenance. With a flat or cant roof, there is probably going to be some of that each winter.
