This tudor style home needed an attached garage which was accomplished using field stone from an onsite hedgerow. The roof is 7 layers of steamed wood shakes applied in a wave pattern and curved over the facias.
The siding is rough sawn oak timbers infilled with cement plaster. The overall appearance of the addition is seamless and will provide decades of low maintainence service.
