Thanks to the owners’ desire to use reclaimed materials, the roof and exterior walls are covered with recycled, corrugated steel panels that are natural and have an organic feel. The rusty, weathered finish is a natural patina that the homeowners wanted to highlight. At each end of the building, reclaimed planks from snow fencing were used to panel the wall, adding another texture and extra interest to the exterior surface.
