Can’t wait for the cement-board shiplap to go up on this elevation!

The photo below shows the black, standing seam metal roof being installed.

Here’s a recent photo of the stone veneer progress at the round patio. Notice the paneled ceiling at covered porch above. See that hole in the one stone? That’s where the outdoor shower will be located.

Here’s the view from further away. You can see the second floor balcony framing coming together.

Here’s a rendering that I did a number of years ago for the Maeves Way development in Falmouth.

The following rendering is for a new house in Yarmouth.

Here’s a close-up photo where the 24-pitch gambrel roof form a valley that extends down onto a 4-pitch porch roof. The valley is copper, drip-edge is copper and standing seam porch roof is copper, all crimped and soldered together. The dark copper to right in the photo has changed color from shingles that have already been installed higher up (not in photo).

It’s tough to flash custom millwork, but our copper guy did it! There will be leaded glass insert grille installed later.

The yellow material is cedar breather installed underneath the cedar shingles.

Direct vent fireplaces don’t have the best looking vents. At least some offer copper vents. Too bad it has to say ‘hot’ on it. Hopefully once it all patinas it won’t be as noticeable.

The windows were installed in the cupola and I took this shot facing Portland Headlight. Nice chop-saw workstation on the staging huh?



Portland Headlight

The view opposite Portland Headlight is the Spring Point Lighthouse. You can also see an oil taker leaving Casco Bay. Curved stone patio support slab in right foreground.

Because of the extreme weather on this point of land, and because no one will want to go out on this roof to do any repair work, the trim is all Azek with copper through-flashing.

Cupola detail

Stile and rail panel details around the cupola. I also like my cupola bases to flare out slightly.
