Boston Architects: Eck | MacNeely Architects inc.

Intimate family home on a pond outside of Boston. The clear volumes and simple detailing reflect the owner’s desire for a place for the family to gather and
relax. Three bedrooms are located in the board & batten
clad two-story volume to the east, and the living, dining
and kitchen face the water in the lower clapboard volume.

Hello and thank you for your interest in Eck MacNeely Architects. The client/homeowner selected the stain on this project so we unfortunately do not have the exact stain color. This is the case in many of our residential design projects. The question of paint vs stain on exterior wood is interesting and somewhat complicated! Here is a useful piece on the pros and cons of each:

This is very close to same tint as my red house. I have almond/ beige windows,(vinyl and aluminum clad). Trim color for soffit, corners, fascia, is where I'm looking for advice. Oh, and color advice for new metal roof as well please?

Thank you for your interest in Eck MacNeely Architects. We unfortunately do not know the paint color - it was chosen by the client and contractor.

Possibly fiber cement but most likely wood.

Becky Harris added this to Country Modern: A Balancing Act
Here it is from another angle.
With all the red, this home should bring these owners much luck and good fortune.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to 9 Top Siding Materials
Board and BattenAvailable in wood and fiber cement, board and batten siding is, like horizontal lap siding, a good choice for traditionally designed homes. Unlike the horizontal lines of lap siding, board and batten puts visual emphases on the vertical, creating taller-appearing houses.Cost: Initially used on barns and other farm buildings as a low-cost and material-efficient approach to siding, board and batten has come to be evocative of those rural structures. But it's no longer the least expensive option, costing about the same as lap siding in either wood or fiber cement.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Seal the Deal With Fiber Cement Siding
It's also available in a board-and-batten configuration.
