I think you would need to do some samples, which was done quite extensively on this house, to get the look just right.

The siding is red cedar, pre-primed in semi-transparent at the factory in Cabot Beechwood Gray. Then a single coat of Semi-transparent Cabot Pepperwood was applied.

I would love to know the name of the stain used on the shingles and the trim paint color as well. Beautiful color scheme on this house!

All are saying the paint color is some shade of green? In these photos it looks like a smooth tan or khaki.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Here's a closer look at the breezeway.
3. Order firewood. If you use firewood to fuel your woodstove or fireplace, now is the time to stock up for winter. The ideal place for wood storage is away from the house, under cover and with plenty of air. An open-sided portico or shed would be great. Set your wood on top of pallets to increase air circulation and keep the wood dry.

I like breezeways where the garage is separate from the main house. Allows for a bunk room upstairs above the garage or a studio away from the house. Looks like a good area to stow away wood for the fireplace.
