To many, home construction in general isn’t all that interesting to watch. There are times however, when it is simply breathtaking. This is one of those moments. While visiting the site on a quiet Sunday morning we saw for the first time the true colors and palette of the exterior of our modern barn. It’s beauty and strength just stunned us. Three dimensional computer renderings can only show you so much. That’s nothing like the real thing. Bathed in the strong morning light, the red corrugated metal siding is proudly juxtaposed with the reverse board-and-batten cypress. To us, this is a symphony of color and texture fitting for a traditional Chester county barn.
But wait, there’s more! The gray stucco has yet to be applied to sections of the exterior, adding yet another element of color, texture and aesthetic balance. As the cypress ages and weathers into a stone gray color over time, the palette will continue to evolve. For more photos see the slideshow.
