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!

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.

Your smooth stucco looks clean/crisp. Could you please share details? - Hello Arcanum, I am a junior architect and working on my parents build hopefully their "dream" home. I've been looking at smooth stucco for a while now trying to gauge how architects get just the right amount of texture. I understand if it's too much information to pass along but if you guys are willing to share what you need to specify in order to achieve this smooth stucco texture that would be awesome. If not, totally cool. Thanks either way!
