So we did this:

The metal roof is done! I'm breathing a huge sigh of relief. I really like how it turned out. Ignore the ugly asphalt seam. The original plan was to tooth in the old shingles with the new but it turns out that the old shingles were crumbling as the roofers tried to do so so these shingles will serve as a temporary solution until we can replace the entire roof next year. My wallet needs a break.
Each step now has a very visual reward which really helps our fried brains. Next up is the decorative wainscoting that will go in the inlay above the metal base in the triangle, bead board ceiling and miles and miles of trim.
