Wood siding is the use of wood boards overlapping each other as an exterior 'skin' to your home. It comes in a variety of textures and tree varieties. There also is cedar siding, that is more tolerable to insects, and resistant to warping.

Wood siding has been used for generations to build homes, and today many builders still use it, but vinyl siding often is used instead of wood due to its longevity and minimal amount of care required for upkeep.

Is the board and batten siding painted or naturally aged?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

"They wanted to feel like the land is what's celebrated, and the house is just a small, modest, beautiful structure," says Parker, a partner in the San Francisco firm 450 Architects, Inc. The windows at the far left of this image are the kitchen, the middle leg is a new sunroom, and at the far right are the French doors and private deck of the master suite. A fig tree grows next to the path.

2. Nestled in the landscape in Sonoma, California: This eco-friendly home was crafted with the site and surrounding landscape in mind; the design was shifted to fit into the land rather than altering the land to fit the house.
Becky Harris added this to Great Design Plant: Common Fig
Planting notes: Plant in mid to late fall or early spring.Place the tree about 10 to 15 feet away from other plants to accommodate its wide spread.Dig a hole at least two times the size of the root ball. Place the root ball in the hole and fill the hole halfway with rich, organic soil.Add water and let it drain, then finish filling the hole with dirt. Add mulch around the tree but keep it off the trunk. This will help keep the moisture in. Keep the tree watered until it gets established but be careful not to overwater.
