Nice shots, Bob...brand new copper bits, huh? Probably won't look like that for long, (unless it's the coated type), it will mellow to a nice soft green soon.

Where I live it takes about 10 years to patina. How long do you expect it will take in your environment?

Another question....what's centered above the entry door, and, I think, shows up, just a little in the detail shot at the right?

Thank you Kita! I think they remodeled this house two or three years ago. What you see above the door is the old stone siding. They used some kind of stucco to cover the outside of the house and left bits of the old here and there. I would guess that copper should start turning anytime now.

What a beautiful house. I would love to live there. The copper roof sections really add points of interest to the house. That thing above the door looks like an emblem of some kind.

Great shots.

Thank you Cal! This is a pretty cool looking place, I'm with you, I'd trade my place for it anytime! Here is a closer look above that door.

I've gotta say, that looks pretty silly to me. Like an open invitation for water intrusion! The new stucco treatment could have been because the old stone was prone to leaking....why give water a route like that to get behind the stucco?

It reminds me of the popular technique, here, to plaster over some old brick and then break away parts of the plaster to expose the brick, trying to make it look old. Very popular with Mexican restaraunts around my area.

Maybe I'll try to get some pics.....after all, they are all over the place, here!
