What type of wood siding is used on the exterior? will it be low maintenance? Is it natural wood or a masonry siding product?

What type of stain do you prefer? Have you used Sikkens or Penofin, or a different stain? Thanks!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The stucco and wood front is fairly closed off, with some small openings. The rear of the house, seen here, is appropriately more open.
