Canopy - How practical is the galvanized material used over the patio area? We are building a patio/garage & looking for an inexpensive but practical solution to cover the carport (that we will also use as a patio). Thanks!
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Hi - Did you figure out how galvanized would work for your application? I love the look but live in Ohio -with lots of snow - not sure if it's great for our climate.

I love the use of modern materials and details in the tradition forms. I think that it is very relevant today.

- stucco + metal brings a modern touch - flat overhang modernizes traditional roof lines - as long as we could figure out the privacy issue, I like large windows on new sections of house for natural light and to make up for low ceilings
