about the renovation of our new north Portland Church into our future home!

siding and other surface quests

Eli found this great looking metal shingle typically used for roofing and we are thinking about putting sections on the front facade of the building.  I like the idea of breaking up the monotony of the chocolate brown siding with something really modern… and this stuff will hopefully be long-lasting and also deter vandalism.

The shingles look like this: (shown variegated with silver & green)

This is a current picture of what that might look like.

We’ll run a trellis (or plant trees in the planter shown) up the middle, have flowers and plants in front of the big (partially frosted for privacy) window and all along the sides.  The planters would be black/brown rusted steel… and the ‘pony-wall’ part that justs out diagonally on the left will incorporate the mailboxes for both units… this is where the shingles would go.  siding is shown currently covering the front door so that it’s hidden, but if I can find a cool 8 ft door at the rebuilding center, we may expose it instead.
