This house was made to last. Note the iron roof over the circular porch area.

The house sits on a knoll overlooking downtown Fort Worth, Texas.

Noted quite a few houses in the Galveston area with this architectural style. Must suit that climate particularly well. Nice job.

The first shot has a very plastic, almost 3-dimensional feeling to it and it for sure looks kinda unique and interesting. A house with it's own character to say so.

Thanks for sharing!

Kita, you're probably right about it being copper. Hearing how copper prices have skyrocketed lately, its a wonder some thieves haven't tried to cart it off.

Great old house. Seeing the pale green patina, I would say copper, also. Iron would rust very quickly and would not be a good roofing material. Copper is very durable.
