790 Exterior Wood Siding Material Gable Roofline Design Photos And Ideas

Landscaping from Piazza Horticultural surrounds relaxed outdoor hangout spots.
A private outdoor shower is located at ground level, for easy access from the beach.
The team relocated the staircase so it doesn’t break up the facade.
Clapboard siding was swapped out for narrow horizontal strips of Meranti wood, and the garage now has barn-style swing doors that fit into the facade.
The bay window was squared off, and the cupola was rebuilt so that the scale works better with the massing of the building.
The kitchen is located on the east side to receive morning light, while the living room to the west takes advantage of the afternoon and evening light.
“The north and south facades are set back in relation to the wood paneling so that they are perceived as framing.”
The canopy and balcony at the east and west facades are made of galvanized black steel.
When viewed from the rear, the home’s sculptural shape becomes more apparent. “At first sight, the requested pitched roof is not recognizable,” say the architects. “Only if seen in direct elevation, from above or experienced from inside in section it is visible and gives a spatial tension to the whole.”
When viewed from the access road, House L echoes the local vernacular with its pitched, shed-like form.
An old silver fir became a focal point in the design and guided the shape and orientation of House L.
Located in the valley and commune of Gsies, House L is surrounded by mountains and dense forests.
Beneath the sharply angled car park of the midcentury house, aqua-colored paint and exposed wood siding give a new look to the existing facade. The design team brightened the front steps with geometric tiles.
The large wood deck features an outdoor shower that helps to provide an indoor/outdoor living experience.
The Cobb Haus, a wood-sided, 700-square-foot cabin in Cobb, California, features a large wood deck surrounded by towering trees.
Nestled among towering fir trees and magnificent dogwoods in Cobb, California—just an hour north of Napa Valley—is the 700-square-foot cabin Hope Mendes recreated as an idyllic family escape. "We’ve always had a dream of owning and renovating a cabin in the woods," Hope says, "a place [where] we could take our kids when we need to get away from the hustle and bustle of our work lives."
Both ÖÖD Iceland houses have a hot tub at the front overlooking the spectacular scenery. “This makes the experience even more surreal,” says CEO Andreas Tiik.
The glass front half of the cabin blurs boundaries between interior and exterior and completely immerses guests in the dramatic surroundings.
The cabins overlook the Hekla volcano, one of Iceland’s most active volcanoes. It is part of a 25-mile-long volcanic ridge, and during the Middle Ages it was referred to by Europeans as the "Gateway to Hell.”
The two cabins are named Freya and Alva, and feature the runes for “F” and “A” on the exterior timber wall. Signs from Nordic mythology are also found on the back of the houses. “The viking elements and the runes help the cabins fit into Icelandic history,” says CEO Andreas Tiik.
The harsh local climate—including strong winds and acid rain caused by the volcanic landscape—was a particular challenge. The cabin features a copper roof, which is one of the few materials that can cope with acid rain.
Two cabins sit in the vast, empty landscape overlooking the Hekla volcano, around three hours’ drive from Reykjavík. The front part of each cabin—for sleeping—is almost entirely glass, while the rear—where the living, kitchen and bathroom spaces are located—is clad in timber for privacy.
The home is functionally modular, suitable for one person or the whole family. When they travel to the property alone, the clients are able to access just the master suite, while keeping the rest of the home closed off.
The home’s more sheltered faces are clad with humidity-treated pine paneling in a bold, dark hue.
“The result is an unusual, simple, and monochrome architecture exploring the purity of the square,” note the architects.
The project’s only splurge was the installation of Shalwin tilt and turn aluminum windows, which cost twice as much as standard windows.
The property slopes approximately 25% from the main road to the lake.
The Poisson Blanc home is topped with an economical white-painted steel roof and clad in standard white-painted pine.
Designed and constructed over the course of two years, the three-bedroom holiday home is oriented to face the lake and slightly angled toward the south to optimize solar gain.
The clients’ one-acre property is located right on the edge of Lake Poisson Blanc, a large water reservoir. “It feels very quiet, isolated, and tranquil,” says Rasselet of the remote area. “It’s an extraordinary place for kayaking and fishing.”
As evening sets in, the home glows like a lantern.
The black-stained wood that clads the south faade contrasts with the glass on the north façade and blends with the color of the tree trunks that pepper the natural landscape.
The architects nestled the home into a fold in the topography so that the western facade grips the land, and the eastern facade cantilevers over a small slope. <span style="font-family: Theinhardt, -apple-system, BlinkMacSystemFont, &quot;Segoe UI&quot;, Roboto, Oxygen-Sans, Ubuntu, Cantarell, &quot;Helvetica Neue&quot;, sans-serif;">The house’s angled roofline mimics the wooded hillside behind it.</span>
Inspired by historic American farmhouses, this modern dwelling is sited at the base of the Rocky Mountain Foothills in West Boulder, Colorado. Designed by Surround Architecture, the 6,800-square-foot property features a unique layout that makes the best use of its one-acre site, while also responding to its long driveway access.
The library pop-out also provides cover for the back door.
An expansive, elevated deck creates a more graceful connection to the house.
The architects installed a new front porch. Fifty percent of the original roof framing was kept with a new standing-seam metal as a cover.
Now the facade is distinguished by bright yellow and soft gray paint, and oversize windows.
Ada, a second design by Norske Mikrohus, measures 205 square feet and is set on wheels.
Vilde is a 237-square-foot tiny home designed by Norske Mikrohus, an Oslo, Norway–based design-build firm.
"Our primary focus is to offer quality tiny homes at an affordable price," says David Reiss-Andersen, who cofounded the Oslo, Norway–based tiny home company Norske Mikrohus with his wife Jeanette, who’s also the firm’s lead designer. "There’s growing awareness of compact living, minimalism, and sustainability," David says. "We want to help provide people with the freedom that comes with living with fewer things, lower costs, lower energy use, and less waste."
The house is oriented north-south, with the broad side of the structure facing east-west. This guarantees not only gorgeous views of the sunset, but also minimizes wind exposure.

“The design for the house emerged from walking the property. We imagined that as we climbed up from the beach, we’d see little peeks of our home from behind the trees,” says Brad Horn, architect and resident.
From their headquarters in Austin, Texas, MA Modular provides modular homes to Louisiana and Texas, among other states. Their modern homes are typically inspired by local vernacular building types.
In order to leave the hills intact, the builders excavated uphill and added a steel-grated bridge to connect the upper sleeping level to the hillside and the adjacent tack barn.
The eastern side of the home gets beautiful views and the morning sun. The fireplace and chimney, foreign to the barn typology, are connected to the building with glazed joints.
The home features sustainable heating and cooling, plus enhanced glazing, insulation, and efficient mechanical systems to mitigate overall energy use.

Zoom out for a look at the modern exterior. From your dream house, to cozy cabins, to loft-like apartments, to repurposed shipping containers, these stellar projects promise something for everyone. Explore a variety of building types with metal roofs, wood siding, gables, and everything in between.
