Halfway House


Known as “The Halfway House,” these two separate residences on Bayou Boisdore in Pass Christian, MS definitely get a second look from passers-by.

Approximately 3,500 sq. ft. of Petersen’s Snap-Clad™ Metal Roofing Panels was installed on each of the two residences. Finished in Silver Metallic, the .032 aluminum panels provide a unifying look. 

The owner, architect and general contractor on the project was Rob Stumm, president of Carriere-Stumm, Inc., New Orleans, a commercial roofing and sheet metal construction company. 

“I had the opportunity to buy two adjoining lots,” says Stumm.  “I’ve always claimed I could design and build two as cheaply as one so this was my chance to prove it.  Of course, it definitely helped that a friend who is in the drywall and structural steel business bought the second lot.  We were able to trade services.”

“I designed the structure to resemble a West Indies-type plantation house and basically cut it in half,” says Stumm.  Each residence is approximately 3,200 square feet.

Stumm planned The Halfway House to be hurricane proof and Katrina proved the integrity of Stumm’s design.  “There’s no wood on the house,” Stumm says.  “All of the columns and exterior elements are covered with PAC-CLAD material.  We had no structural damage and the Snap-Clad roof held tight.  But there was 26’ of water in the house.  We gutted the living quarters on the second floor, hosed it out and put up new drywall.  It’s as good as new!”
