Antique shingles: Traditional grey over South Carolina mansion

This project is one where the camera-woman failed to capture the charm and hard work the new owners are performing. And thus far, the “after” photos are missing.

Located near one of the least populated towns in South Carolina, the surrounding countryside provides a rural backdrop for the residence. The design of the shingles suggest an early installation in the embossed tin shingle period.

The area under the front peak, covered with the roofing shingles, was returned to the same tint–traditional grey–of the roof.
