Rustic, affordable garage roof?
I'm building a "farmhouse-revival" home, using traditional materials, design, colors, etc, but with a slight touch of contemporary elements. There will be a steep-roofed detached garage about 24'x28'.
The house proper will have standing-seam metal roofing, but I would like something different for the garage to give it more of a barn appearance of a different age than the house itself.
I wish I could say "cost is no object", but it certainly is.
First choice would be re-purposed slate...too damn expensive!
I'm also considering red cedar shingles (or shakes), also probably on the pricey side, but I have not gotten an estimate yet. Asphalt shingles would be out of character...
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
