This picturesque beach home features large windows to take advantage of the amazing scenery; many types of trees, shrubs and plants; stepping stones to the entryway; a gravel driveway; panel construction and a standing seam roof.
A wide front porch, topped with a 24-gauge standing-seam roof, invites relaxation and conversation with neighbors at HGTV Smart Home 2013. Pine straw-covered beds planted with Asiatic jasmine greet guests along the front fence.
Beside the pool is a separate building made of hand-cut stone and standing seam copper roof to house a powder room, changing room, toys and pillows. In between the doors is also a outdoor shower to rinse off.
A paver walkway leads to the entrance of this beautiful home. A mix of natural rock and mulch creates a simple yet lovely landscape around the front. The stucco exterior and standing seam metal roof creates an interesting country-meets-mediterranean facade.
One of the projects in the refurbishing of this farmhouse in Garrison, New York was to rebuild the front porch, which had been removed. To honor the home's history, designers used a standing seam metal roof supported by chamfered posts. The decking is painted heart pine.
Designer Lisa Furey's challenge was to design and build a 690-square-foot low country cottage that would include a kitchen, laundry area, bedroom and workspace as well as outdoor space. Board and batten siding, a standing seam metal roof and board and batten composite shutters — all weather-proof choices — give the exterior a farmhouse feel.
