We have our brilliant builders Spaller + Glover to thank for the suggestion and sourcing.
We wanted a metal roof, but didn't want a modern metal roof that didn't match the era of the home. and... voila - our new roof. Interlocking diamond shaped metal tiles. A perfect match with the 1930s architecture.
Feels good to see it start to look more like a house again. My brilliant builders Spaller + Glover created this cathredal-esque hallway leading to an iron and glass custom window at the end to allow for more natural light and (of course) a little more glamor.
