A unique weathering product with the capability to provide the lead/pewter look was looked for no further when Terne Coated Copper (Freedom Gray) made itself known. This favored roofing and cladding solution of the great Frank Loyd Wright was employed to impress all. Laughing at the demands of intricate details place in front of this product Terne coated copper executed all without complaint. A work site watch this noble product transform instantly over nights as the lands delivered needed dew to the metals surface. 

The outcome was a near monolithic exterior envelope with no exterior fixings to cause trouble and no sealants to degrade. Instead a subtle earthy weathering gray tone to continue into depths only truly recognized by the landscape in this stunning peaceful outcrop.
