Love the way the window is set back....see below - Is the siding cedar shake? How do you accomplish the curve into the window with cedar shake as it does not bend? Are you using some other material for the siding? Would greatly appreciate a response as I am getting varying responses from contractors. Many thanks!

Thanks for your question. The exterior is cedar shingle. curving the shingles can be done through either soaking them for a period of time or they can be steamed.

Beautiful gables - where can I find the finial please? - The style of this house is unique and beautiful! Could you provide the manufacturer of the finial on the gable? I would love to do something similar on my beach house. Any guidance would be much appreciated!

The finial was custom designed and built by the roofing contractor. Sorry we couldn't be more specific.

Its very hard to identify from this photo. It looks to be a 1x6 t&g western red cedar select tight knot, or possibly a 1x4 T&G clear fir ceiling.. Hopefully that helps!

We are currently building a white cedar home, and need to get it to this color asap, who can we talk to about your mixture and how it was done? Love this home! We chose a stone based on the house turning grey and right now the stone and cedar do not look good together...need to hurry up that grey ! thank you

Are the shingles white cedar? If so, would the 50/50 mix work on red cedar shingles as well?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Curb Appeal Begs Your Attention
LandscapingLandscaping is an opportunity to extend the feel and character of your home to the edges of your property. Doing this can create a streetscape that's not only enjoyable but valuable. After all, who doesn't want to live on a beautiful street?Hardscapes — driveways, walks, stoops, patios and so on — reinforce the overall character of a house and draw visitors in. So do softscapes, such as grass, flower beds, bushes and trees. Fences can act as both invitation and barrier, depending on your location and privacy needs.
Beth Woodson and Kristy Harvey added this to Star Home Facade Combo: Stone and Shingle
For terrific curb appeal, stone walkways and driveways are a go-to choice. Blending the color palettes of the stone and shingles really works.
