2143 Exterior Wood Siding Material Design Photos And Ideas

Inspired by tatami mats, the spacious rear deck comprises a series of cascading platforms built from Alaskan yellow cedar in alternating patterns and supported with low, board-formed concrete walls. The glazed doors along the east-west axis also frame views of the Marin Hills that can be enjoyed from the rear deck.
Beautiful views of the Buddha statue and lagoon can be seen in the approach to the front entrance flanked by Japanese maples. The homeowners often leave the rear LaCantina  doors wide open for continuous indoor/outdoor connection.
Located an hour north of San Francisco, the vacation home embraces views in two directions: the Marin Hills and a marine bird sanctuary to the east, and the sparkling waters of the Bolinas Lagoon to the west.
The spacious second-story terrace projects toward the south to overlook views of the meadow.

The residence is clad in a combination of vertical grain cedar, Firestone aluminum, and Corten standing-seam metal. The stone is Frontier Sandstone.

The modern Montana home is nestled into a transitional zone between a forested butte and a grassy meadow in the western part of the state.
Western red cedar has been used for all the siding; several of the sections have been painted with Finnish linseed white paint. The single slope roof is made out of blue metal sheets. It has been fitted with roof ladders supported by five brackets on each gable.

The classic post-and-beam construction is highlighted on the exterior.
A blackened-timber pergola extends from the modern barn that architect Greg Scott designed for Jody and Deirdre Aufrichtig in the Elgin Valley, an apple- and grape-growing region near Cape Town. Made of narrow slats stabilized with randomly scattered blocks of wood, it  covers roughly half of the outdoor deck.
"We really didn’t have any experience taking on a project of this scale," says Ely. "We’re both generally impulsive people, so we purchased this house—which was a broken shell of a space— with really no plan on how to proceed."
After the renovation, the Hunter Greenhouse was painted green to match the trees around it, earning it its name.
Solid post-and-beam construction gives the home a classic midcentury profile.
"The geometry of the roof transforms from a typical pitched gable on the short northeast end of the façade, to a flat roof on the opposite end of the southwest facade," says cofounder Javier Ampuero Ernst. "This transition creates a dynamic arrangement of folding roof planes."
The new extension has been designed as a two-level sculptural form that twists from a single point, creating setbacks and overhangs that provide shade for the courtyard and ground level.
An exterior shot shows the site-built garage along with two adapted prefabricated modules. The one above the garage houses the kitchen, home office, and living room, while the other contains the home’s bedrooms. Exterior materials include sustainably harvested cedar rainscreen; HardiePanel made from recycled materials; and standing seam metal siding, known for its longevity and energy efficiency.
The meticulously landscaped front yard is low maintenance and features drought tolerant plants and a sprinkler system.
The mix of cedar and stone help integrate the dwelling into its natural setting.
The home cantilevers out over the series of stone-retaining walls.
The first floor is made up of glass walls that allow the site to appear to remain uninterrupted.
Passive design principles were utilized in the siting of the highly-insulated cabin. Deep eaves protect the interior from hot summer sun, while a verandah overhang optimizes solar gains in winter.
The exterior combines recycled brick, radial sawn timber, and galvanized roof sheeting. "Materials were selected to meet the clients’ brief that the house fit within the cognitive idea of an old shed," explain the architects.
The clients requested the design of the cabin and shed to appear as if the buildings had been weathering over time with the site.
The transformation of  a 1950s eyesore into an elegant, gallery-like home was a creative challenge for architect Kevan Hoertdoerfer and all involved. The poem “Roll the Dice” by Charles Bukowski is painted on the facade. “It expresses how we  felt about the project,” says resident Karen Baldwin. “Everybody  roll with it—everybody do their thing.”
The chiflonera leads to the entrance of the cabin.
