Colors? - I love everything about this. What is the exact color of the siding as well as the trim/railing color? Also, is that hardi-board siding?

Thank you for reporting this. Undo
Smith & Vansant Architects PC
Glad you like it, but no the siding is not hardi-board, the siding is red cedar shingles, pre-primed in semi-transparent at the factory in Cabot Beechwood Gray. Then a single coat of Semi-transparent Cabot Pepperwood was applied. The rest of the colors are Benjamin Moore paints.
The windows are wood, in "Cottage Red" Ready Mix, not clad aluminum. BM no longer stocks the RM colors, or has them in the new color chips, but they will still mix them.
The natural wood doors and rails are stained with Pecan, and sealed with a tung oil product.
Most of the ext. trim is BM 1523 Embassy Green.
Porch ceilings are BM 2140-40 Storm Cloud Gray.

That is called Red Balau with a clear finish of two coats of Penofin's “Penetrating Oil Finish."
