This exterior image shows how the original three-window shed dormer was extended to allow access to the upstairs addition. The carved out porch provides a beautiful connection to the newly renovated landscape.

    I have unknowingly saved so many pictures from this house during independent searches! It really is a beautiful home, with so many thoughtful, and timeless details. My favorite overall element is how the design of the interior enhances the owners collected & curated style. Gorgeous work.

    I like the detail of the seams turning flat into the ridge. It makes a clean, simple look. What is the specification to get that affect??

  • Germain Wong

    Hi, can't tell from the pic, are there stiffening ribs between the seams? I wanted the same thing (19" with no "pencil ribs") but the manufacturer said they would want me to sign a waiver for oil cannning... just wondering if oil-canning is a problem in your project.... thanks!

    There is a stone drip strip in the earth around the building where the drip line from roof runoff collects and is channeled into the footing drains and to daylight beyond the far side of the porch in this image. The small shrubs are concealing the drip strip here.

    I was thinking the same thing about the snow guards. I have seen more, and more houses with metal roofs now. In places that get a lot of snow, is it best to have a metal roof? http://www.starkweatherandsonsroofing.com/roofing.html

    Do you use the same whites for trim and wall when painting a house white?

    Thank you. I am building a house with such a porch on the Maine coast. Now I will know what to call it. No one else knew the name.

    L.E. Nichols and Son, LLC (also known as Larry & Matthew) along with Joe and Aiden are building this beautiful oceanfront home in Downeast Maine. Matthew chose the carve out porch for me and I love it. Another picture here.

    Hi. Do you happen to know if the Englert roofing used on this home is Series A1300? We are trying to find a standing seam metal roof that appears "flat, without ridges" between the seams, which in this photo looks like is the case. Any specific info is greatly appreciated.
  • PRO
    Smith & Vansant Architects PC
    Standing seam metal roofs, by definition include a seam. I believe the seam on this roof stands up approximately an inch and a half and that corresponds to the A1300 series specifications. You can find more information at: http://www.englertinc.com/architectural-metal-roof-systems/
    Hope that helps!

    For the new portion of the building on the left side of this image with the porch the rafters are 2x12's and we ripped down 2x4's (to 2 7/8") and sistered to the rafters. With a 1'-6" overhang they extended an additional 3'-0" effectively providing a cantilever/support for the sheathing. Glad you like it!

    While this image makes it look almost black, this is an "Englert Kynar Ultra-Cool Low Gloss" standing seam metal roof in a Dark Bronze finish. We used the 26 gauge metal, but 24 gauge is optimal (and more expensive) if you want to be sure you don't get an oil canning affect (caused by stretching metal). Speak to a good roofing contractor in your area about this, standing seam and pan spacing options.
    Hope that helps.

    This metal roof looks amazing against the white color of the exterior of the home. It seems like it would be hard to get a leak in the roof if it was made out of metal. Do you know if a roof like this would stand up well against heavy snowfall? http://www.nmtroofing.com

    Wow, a what a beautiful roof that was installed in that home. I wonder though, what type of tools or materials would be used to put up such a roof like that? Looking at this has me thinking about my own roof and how I'm thinking about seeing a roofer to get rid of all my shingles and just replace the shingles for a metal roof or even an aluminum roof, if there is such a thing. http://www.patriotroofingservices.com

    It looks like a metal roof to me. That's really interesting, normally you only see this roof on large buildings and cabins. I think it looks really good on a house like this though. I wonder what the price difference is for something like this. http://www.allsloperoofing.com/en/

    I am sorry, our homes are custom designs created to specifically integrate our client's programmatic requirement with their particular site. Our policy has been to not release drawings to protect both the clients privacy and our hard work.
    However, this home has been recently published in This Old House Magazine April 2013 edition and there are crude floorplans in there.
    Hope that helps!

      Fred Albert added this to Contracting Practice: Marketing Your BusinessJul 14, 2014

      Word of mouth. For many contractors this is the most valuable and consistent form of marketing. Doing good work leads people to recommend you to their friends, family and coworkers, who are more likely to listen to the enthusiastic endorsement of those they trust than go to neutral sources like ads. You can cultivate word-of-mouth leads by staying in touch with clients in a variety of ways: newsletters, holiday cards, postcards, check-ins about warrantees etc. We send an annual holiday card with photos of the previous year’s projects, and have a fall party at our office for clients and architects. It’s a great way to see everyone, and it keeps our company at the top of people’s minds at least twice a year.When you receive a lead from a customer referral, the job is really yours to lose. Your previous clients have already sold them on what a good company you have. Now it’s up to you to decide if it’s a good fit and then move ahead.Architects and designers. Design professionals want and need to have contractors they trust to build the great projects they design. Most architects would rather their clients hire a contractor who they know does good work, rather than one with whom they are unfamiliar. That means they often have referral lists of contractors that they provide to their clients. Those clients come to contractors almost completely prequalified: They have already invested in plans, they know approximately what the project will cost, and they are usually ready to build within the next six months. Architects almost always refer people to companies of similar size and with similar qualifications. That means your main challenge will be to differentiate your company to demonstrate why you’re the best company to hire. You might stress your success at customer service or communication, or your great staff and trade partners.

      Standing-Seam Metal RoofPros: Extremely durable, long lasting, light reflective and fully recyclable, metal roofs are a great investment for anyone — not just green homeowners. You can ramp up the green factor by choosing a metal roof made with recycled content and in a lighter color.Cons: More expensive than asphalt shingles (though less than copper and slate), a standing-seam metal roof is a bigger investment up front. Also, homeowners in areas with heavy snowfall must include a plan for dealing with snow — it slides right off metal roofs, potentially creating huge drifts around the perimeter of the house.The Advantages of a Metal Roof

      Kristy Woodson Harvey and Beth Woodson added this to Classic White Clapboard Shows Timeless CharmMar 22, 2012

      Asphalt and slate are great, but there's nothing like the pitter-patter of raindrops on a tin roof. The darker colors look fabulous on white clapboard houses but can pose an energy problem when it comes to summer air conditioning. We love how Smith & Vansant turned the perceived problem into an advantage by adding solar panels, making this house gorgeously white and green.

      It's hard to believe that the stone walls were newly built. They are composed of stones from reclaimed walls.
