And then the roof….this is a “snap lock” standing seam roof.  A standing seam roof, traditionally, is made on panels (2-4′ wide) x length of the roof.  The edges of the panels are turned up 1-3 inches and then they are crimped and folded to create an interlocked seam.  It remains vertical and therefore is called a standing seam.  The way the seam works varies, and many types are now available.  I used a snap lock seam where the panels just friction fit to each other.  Its a cheaper version, but still quite nice.  Here are some images.  I actually like how bright the roof is, but eventually it will dull out a bit.

 

The one oddball picture is of the spray foam insulation at the front entry. It seems to have serrated from the wood joists a bit, I will have the spray foam guys patch those edges when they come back to do the rest of the house.  It’s hard to keep track of all these teeny issues!  Once it gets covered up, its easy to forget
