we are debating about lp smart siding and hardie cement siding....but the color is also throwing us off. we originally wanted powder (for lp) and iron gray (hardie) but now that the roof we wanted is coming in (storm cloud by owens corning)...it seems that the siding colors we were choosing are going to be too dark? also we need to choose stone...the bottom two pictures are of the stone we originally wanted...but now with the roof in I don't want too many colors....suggestions anyone...in regards to siding color? our windows are stone white by marvin. also note the iron gray is the house with white garage and the powder color is the home with the wood garage. we need to choose asap....picture is of our home.....couldn't post the iron gray...so posted a link

Possible color palette? Maybe pale gray. Warm sand color found in the stone in your pic. White fascia and trim.

always remember the least expensive way to buy stone is by the truckload approx 24 tons. This should cover about 920 face sq ft . You can purchase direct and I can help you with cost if you need . Usually Stone the front sections of the home . Then Brick, Stucco, or Hardyboard the balance . Blessings from Texas . www.jamesVconsulting.net

the hardie online visualizer doesn't have the options i'm looking for...as well their colors are off....the iron gray in their visualizer looks black....we have a multi colored roof, we have stone white windows....will have the same trim....and we are debating on the siding color. going too light won't look good with the windows.....the stone pictures doesn't have to be the stone....but we need a stone that is thin (flat)...as that's what the foundation allows.

Im really not a big fan of Hardie ( it is what it is ) most builders like it because its cheap . I can help with the thin veneer stone as well. As low as $4.50 sq ft this is real stone not man made.

Tony, thank you very much. The plans call for stone at the bottom 36" and then we are putting in up to the first floor roof at the round room.....as well as where the French doors are on the left first floor. Is there a way to make the siding a charcoal gray? Jamesvconsulting, what type of stone would be 4.50? Also how would we go about getting the materials sent to Chicago? Thanks for everyone's help. We really for screwed by our first gc and are way over budget plus we ran into foundation issues as well and had to come up with cash we didn't have. All we were trying to do is build a home (3800 sq ft) to accommodate us six plus my 92 yr old grandma. Thanks again!

@James V Consulting. Had to laugh at your comment about Hardie. Where I live (Metro DC area) even the million dollar homes are 3-sides vinyl siding. Using Hardie is a huge and rare upgrade. Unless you are buying an old home forget about getting all-brick around here. I had to go custom bc I refused to buy a "vinyl house with brick trim." It's almost impossible to find Hardie on anything under $1 million here, so I guess "cheap" is a relative term.

hardie cement shake is what we most likely will choose....but it has to be installed by an experienced mason......lp smart siding is about 10% less....but wood peckers are attracted to it and I don't want the hassle....plus it isn't fire safe......
JamesVConsulting: you mentioned stone for 4.50? could you please provide a picture?

@JamesV just saw you are in TX. No wonder you referred to Hardie as being cheap. Yes, if I was in TX or most of the country, I would consider hardie a less-expensive option and would instead have an all-brick home. Whenever I see those home shows in TX I sigh. Still can't figure out why everything is so darn expensive here and so inexpensive there. And no state income tax to boot. Agh!! Can't just be the cost of land. I'm not sure if it's the labor or materials, but if the above home was done here on a 1/4 acre it would be well over a million. (Trying not to sound too bitter.)
