My client asked for a house with a vernacular look and a red roof. The exterior finishes are a red standing seam metal roof, local quarter sawn spruce clapboards, timber framed deck beams, posts and braces of local white oak. Trim and deck railings will be milled from the salvaged cedar. The windows are clad.
We also saved the existing chimney and fireplace only to discover that the two are not really connected to one another. The crew went to great lengths to deconstruct and rebuild around the fireplace. We may rebuild the chimney to improve the connection.
