The cedar shingle is a "Type-B" fire rated shingle. It had no other sealer or color added to it. The redwood board and batten is natural and has no sealer.

Would you please tell me what stone veneer you used throughout the exterior (manufacturer and color)? Love it!
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Urrutia Design
The stone is a solid stone and not a veneer. It is called Sonoma Field Stone and is readily available in Sonoma and Napa Counties at various suppliers.

What is the window trim color? - Love it

What Houzz contributors are saying:

"The main thing for me about this house is that there's a very modest feeling to all of it," Urrutia says. "This is definitely the kind of house that's comfortable — it's not over the top. You feel like you could be barefoot or in sneakers in it; you could entertain kids or CEOs in it. It caters to a lot of different people." Many people have commented on the treehouse character of the home.
