Is this a metal gate with corten steel siding? If so can you provide details of how thick (heavy) it is? Thanks for your time.

It sure looks like steel but it is actually made with fiber cement board and painted with an iron reactive paint (paint w/ metal particles) and treated with a rust activator.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This last project consists of a couple parts attributed to Geoff Warner of Alchemy Architects, who renovated an early 20th-century bungalow in St. Paul, Minn. for him and his family. First is a piece on the existing house that is visible through the gate from the rear alley. The blue paint of the second floor signals that it is new (or reconfigured), while its design is otherwise in keeping with the original. But what is between the gate and the house?
