Absolutely Love it!!!! if you were forced to use an asphalt shingle with cedar shingle siding, can I ask what color you would choose? I'm struggling with this right now. Thanks you for posting the photos and your help!

You might want to try "weathered wood" from Certainteed. I would use the highest "architectural-grade" that you can, so that the asphalt shingles are a bit thicker and give a little shadow, instead of the thin stuff that looks painted on. Good luck.
