Chip76, this is a renovated, early 1900s cottage and the clay roof tiles are, for the most part, original. The homeowner had them removed and cleaned. However, there were some that needed to be replaced and the homeowner tracked down the original manufacturer, Ludowici Tile. Ludowici actually produced the brick in Georgia until 1914, but they are now located in Ohio. For more info, you might check out the article on our web page: http://www.historicalconcepts.com/pdfs/Ford.pdf

Is this real board and batten or a hardiplank application? - We have a board and batten home in Louisiana that was painted and the maintenance on the side of the home not covered and receiving the sun won't maintain the paint. However we would not trade the casual and charming feel of the home. Thanks for any information you are willing to share!

Thanks for your inquiry. This is wood board and batten. I don't think we've experienced a similar problem, but it is white, which would not show as much fading as a deeper hue.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Roots of Style: Do You Live in a Minimalist Traditional House?
The next significant element that can determine a style is the entrance door. Usually a prominent feature on most houses, it is often a focal point on the front elevation. This important feature can often emphasize a style and ensure the character of a house.In minimalist traditional homes you will find both the entrance door and most interior doors in a panel design. In the case of this house, its entrance door has glazing in the upper half. The panel door is a traditional design, as explained by Houzz contributor Bud Dietrich.
1. What is your budget? For some remodels of historic homes, there's a large budget and the admirable goal of preserving an architectural gem, no matter the cost. I'll be focusing more on projects with modest budgets in this ideabook. Many of the questions are still the same, but the decisions about how to move forward are different when the budget is limited.
Porch railing height is a good example, he says. If you’re remodeling a porch on a historic home, the railing must be brought up to the modern code height of 32 inches, much higher than railings back in the day. “That means when you’re looking out a window from inside the home, you’re seeing a railing in your face,” he says. “Porch railing height should be level with the lower windowsills. Any higher and it upsets the balance of the house. Some new methods do not work for old things.”
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to 8 Benefits of Cottage Living
All of which allows for splurges. Because a cottage’s small size requires fewer materials, you may be able to indulge your heart’s desire and upgrade from what your larger home might have allowed. Perhaps you could invest in a tile roof like this one …
