I love the natural stone coping. It's even kind of irregular shaped on the deck edge. Nice job.

This one is not noisy at all. Years ago my husband lived in a cabin with a metal roof and it was quite noisy.

CGarber, you've stumped the contractor's wife!

However, I was able to catch up with Bill today and I hope I'm relaying the information properly. For the tall areas, to avoid the plywood z-clip look you get when adjoining sheets of plywood, 1X12 boards were used.

The materials and workmanship on this home are second to none - in the visible areas, such as the copper gutters and even in the not-so-visible areas such as the copper crawl space vents. The stone was imported directly from the quarry and boulders from that quarry are in the landscaping. Inside there is over a mile of wood moulding. The ~5000 square foot home has a basement which can also be accessed from outside (see the metal railing on the left). It also has a pool house. This home is so big that I couldn't get a photo of the whole house! In spite of its size, there are intimate areas such as a breakfast nook under the shed roof on the left.

The monumental pool pavilion was constructed in situ:
Bay Area Outdoor Living Areas: Pool House, Stone Masonry Fireplace, Pergola 1

which is similar to the entry way:
Plant trees next to new custom home

as was the truss ceiling in the family room:
wood truss ceiling by Bay Area construction company

For our houzz readers, you'll always notice a lousy job, but a good job is rarely noticed - see how all the bats line up just perfectly on the pool house in the following link? You'll notice this level of planning under the gable roof of the main photo as well:

Bill was honored to have been selected to build this magnificent home for one of the owners of a major building supply company in the San Francisco Bay Area, who had many qualified contractors to choose from.
