We chose a driftwood colored, architectural shingle to use on the roof. We wanted a softer color rather than a harsh black. You may not be able to see it that well in the photos but it is a brownish, charcoal color. I really wanted real cedar shingles for a more cottage-like look but of course they are not that practical in Maine, so this was the next best thing.
The front side of this room will become the new, front entryway when we build a wall.
Those double windows will eventually become a patio door leading to a deck.
This will be the new living room. The door you see in the photo will become a window.
