hardie board - what color Hardie board did you use, and did you also use Hardie Board for the Timbers? It looks like the Timber Bark color. Is that correct? Thanks much!

The Hardie board panels where installed before Hardie came out with their "ColorPlus" selections. It was prefinished to match Ben Moore Navajo White. The trim is cedar as, again, Hardie didn't make trim when the project was built.

Well, there's no simple answer to your question as there are so many variables. If you build out and your foundation isn't deep or you're doing a slab on grade, building out is less money provided the stair to access a new 2nd floor isn't elaborate. There are advantages to building up as well as building out. I've found that weighing those advantages to find the best approach in a given situation trumps any difference in cost.

This is an Elk gallery series roofing material and the color is weatherwood. Elk is now a part of GAF so this roof is no longer made but GAF does have similar materials.

The material is the Hardie board with the texture. You can see a bit of this texture in the attached photo.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Ranch up. Rather than using up precious ground area and building a foundation, adding a second floor addition to a ranch house is a great and cost effective way to get that extra space. Because this type of an addition requires a new stair be located in the house, it's a great way to fix some of the underlying deficiencies of ranches (such as the dreaded going through a room to get to a room syndrome).Are you adding on?

. Upgrade your electrical panel. Take a really good look at your electrical panel. If it’s 100 amperes and every slot is filled, chances are that you're a prime candidate for a panel upgrade. Even if it's 125 or 200 amperes, added rooms and an updated kitchen will often require a panel upgrade. Remember, too, that code governs where panels can be, and that means not in a closet. If you still have antiquated wiring, this may also be the ideal opportunity to run new wiring and ground all those outlets.
