What is the source of the tubular pole used as a downspout? What type of roof material is used above the overhang? What design is used for the water to slope toward the downspout?

Hi - that's a custom 3" diameter stainless steel tube, with a hole above to receive the rainwater from the roof, and another at the base to drain it. The EPDM membrane on the roof is flashed into the upper hole. The post is structural, and has welded tabs to engage with the concrete footing, and the roof framing. Thanks,

Hi - the treads are Ipe (aka Ironwood), a very strong Brazilian hardwood. They are 1 1/4" thick, and span 36" with no deflection. Incidentally the siding on this house is also Ipe.
