What did you use for siding? - Have a similar project and trying to make decision on what material we'll use.

We have a very similar home in long island. how difficult is it to put in the look out tower? Can it be designed with a landing to put a small chair and 4 chairs?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Brought Up in a Barn
A cupola is another trademark barn feature.
The cupola is something that you often find an old barns. Barns that have been converted into living spaces often retain and air of romance about them. The cupola certainly adds to this ambience.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to On an Architect's Bucket List: To Live in a Barn
A large, strong and simple form set on a stone base: all features of an old barn. But rather than being painted red to stand out in the open field, the exterior of this barn is left raw and weathered to blend with the surrounding trees.
Amy Renea added this to Country Style Gets an Urbane Update
If you prefer to hark back to a time when woods were left bare, an updated rustic country house might be the way to go. The combination of unpainted wood amid a vast sea of forest is a classic look that says country without the twang.
