What color is the siding ?

Eskuche Design
The siding is Hardie Artisan series (no corner boards) which is painted Sherwin Williams SW 7027 Well-Bread Brown. It is always best to have the painter run sample boards prior to painting the entire home. The combinations of materials, angles relative to the sun, overhangs and many other factors will contribute to this looking different despite having the same color.

Hello and thanks for the inquiry. Bob Renaud from Southview Design Landscaping, specified and installed the trees. The trees on the right side of the picture are Swedish Columnar Aspen. The smaller one on the left is a Pagoda Dogwood. Please contact Bob at 763.226.9705 or

Thanks again. With the success of this design, we have now drawn up several homes of similar character, mostly of smaller size. I appreciate your comments!

Thanks for the inquiry! This stone is a natural, thin-cut variation of what is widely, but generically known as "Chief Cliff". It is quarried out of Montana. Good luck!

Love the metal & cable porch overhang/cover. Wanting to do something similar to our home, what sources do you recommend on finding something similar? (and exactly what is it called?)

Amy Renea added this to How to Take Home Design Photos
Don't worry if your photos don't look this amazing straight out of the camera. Photographers often use Photoshop to boost the color, contrast and lighting effects after the fact. You can use free programs like Photoshop Elements or Picasa to add a little bit more oomph to your photos too. Start by making small changes to the levels, curves, brightness and contrast of your photos to enhance the look of your photographs and ultimately sell your home.Next: 12 Ways to Style Your Interior Photos Like a ProHome Photography Tips From the Pros

Love the modern look of this lodge! I think it could look more modern and a little less rustic if it had more stucco and only used stones as an accent.
