1910 Exterior House Wood Siding Material Design Photos And Ideas

Previously, the home had been "a dim, dark, clunky disaster that had been built apparently in direct opposition to light patterns and to views of the lake," says Buhler. Now, the renovated home takes proper advantage of its lakeside setting.
Nicknamed the "lake of a thousand colors" for its brilliant coloration, Kalamalka Lake was a driving inspiration behind the home’s redesign. In a playful nod to the lengthy renovation process, the remodeled house, which now embraces views of the lake, has also been dubbed the "house of a thousand alterations."
Suspended in the forest, the Pinecone tree house is a sight to behold.
The structure is accessed via a steep wooden ladder and a trap door that unfolds down from the top.

The roofs’ concave and convex forms are elegantly layered and integrated into the home's forested setting.
Viewed from above, the home wraps around itself and is folded around a small central courtyard. The roof sections overlap in an organic way, giving the home its name: Four Leaves.
The exterior paint is a custom-blended black that Keasler requested. “I wanted a color that was a little more faded since the chalet has such a modern silhouette. I felt that a true black would be too stark,” she explains. The black contrasts with the whitewashed cedar front porch, which features a Factory Light 4 Outdoor Sconce from Schoolhouse and a vintage chair.
To reduce maintenance needs, the design eschews decks and uncovered outdoor spaces. “We didn’t want the pressure to shovel them off,” explains Sara.
The black steel swing frames a dark window perfectly, lending a modern vibe to the wood exterior. Plants and white decorations break the colors up further.
The home is clad in sustainably sourced spotted gum. A natural material palette is used throughout.
Set on a a repurposed foundation just over 20 square feet, this boxy residence clad in oxidized black cedar makes up for its small footprint by embracing the expansive outdoors with large, glazed openings. The two-story cabin houses the bedrooms in the upper level while an open-plan living room, dining area, and kitchen occupy the ground floor. The home also opens up to an outdoor ipe deck and patio.
Set on an expansive meadow and overlooking the sea, Rode House is a semicircular residence on Chiloé Island featuring a dramatic, sloping roof that extends over an interior courtyard. Pezo von Ellrichshausen is a Chilean firm known for their arresting, geometric architecture. In true form, the striking, semicircular residence boasts a roof that drops steeply to form two sharp peaks at either end.
The L-shaped home is a classic example of Frank Lloyd Wright's Usonian style.
At the rear, a large open patio with wood planks and an outdoor eating space allow for indoor-outdoor living.
The retreat is a composition of light and dark, wood and metal. These materials wrap the masses as they hover above the landscape.
The grand property includes forested land, a reflecting pond, and a private pool—all of which can be enjoyed from the picturesque living spaces.

The roof creates a dialogue with the surrounding landscape through multiple sloped planes, irregular lines, and an absence of overhangs. The home's form appears to change according to one's angle of approach.
The garage doors are finished in the same painted cedar cladding as the external walls, helping them seamlessly blend in.
On the exterior, architect Ron Rea selected a deep black-brown that's not an historically accurate color, but honors the architectural form.

A steady rhythm of interior columns supports the simple framework. Architect Ron Rea created a lighting solution on the columns which appears as though it was always there.
With large spans of glazing, this transparent home fully embraces its forested setting.
"The interlocking panel fascias look a little like the Nokia Snake game folding and raking between the two properties and sandwiching the layers of the house within them," says Jost.
The facades of Kew East House are banded with interlocking, metal panel fascias that weave it into the streetscape.
"The main challenge was access via the narrow driveway easement—particularly as the concrete truck wasn't able to reverse in, so the concrete had to be pumped a long way to the slabs," says Farrajota.
A glazed door offers a peek into the home and provides a break from the black-and-white exterior.
Two white, triangular forms are hinged together by a black, central corner with a glazed entry.
The Vallée du Parc Residence features a complex, angular roof that echoes the form of the surrounding hills.
“Open views, rolling hills, old barns, perch fences, and wildflowers: every aspect of the site was constantly bringing back this historical fiction of rural Quebec at the beginning of the twentieth century,” explain the architects.
The 4,672-square-foot home includes six bedrooms, two family rooms, four bathrooms, and three garage spaces—primarily located on one level.
The exterior of the home is covered with dark, rough wood that changes appearance as light shifts throughout the day and the seasons.
The dark exterior wood cladding ensures the home blends more seamlessly with the site, while the flat roof is meant to recall "midcentury precedents," said the architects. The “sharkfin clerestory roof” feature transmits light into interior rooms.
Loosemore says, "Being in a small house with kids and a dog, it’s hard to find places of tranquility." The solution: a private deck off the master bedroom.
The new home sits on the same footprint, however it gained two bedrooms and another bath and a half. One challenge was extending the cantilevers as far as possible to add more square footage.
The low-lying home, completed in 2018, sits behind a stand of pine trees just steps from the water.
Corrugated Cor-Ten steel clads the entryway that connects the two cedar-clad wings.
Vertical cedar planks clad the exterior of the house, which is segmented to follow the natural slope.
The home opens up to expansive seaside views to the west, while its street-facing, eastern facade is obscured by trees. The firm notes that the architects "conservatively [punched] openings to protect the residence from the noise and visual clutter of the abutting busy Highway 1."
