A significant transformation traditional-exterior

A significant transformation

The transformation shown here involve everything from regrading the back yard, so that water no longer drains into the basement, to creating terrific outdoors spaces and fencing off the traffic on the adjacent road. The stone retaining wall was built using reclaimed stone wallstones, and helps form one edge of the new brick and stone patio. The new rear porch connects the rear of the house with the outdoors and lush gardens surrounding the property edges.

While this image makes it look almost black, this is an "Englert Kynar Ultra-Cool Low Gloss" metal roof in a Dark Bronze finish.
Hope that helps.
