yes it does look great! Do you mean that this photo was taken 8 1/2 years after the shingles were installed? they look brand new!

This photo was taken about 2-3 years after the initial installation. It was also one of a series of shots that were done for Home Magazine.

As far as the setbacks and building height regulations, the Boro has made all necessary adjustments to the ordinances to accommodate rebuilding to the new ABFE's.

As far as maintenance, it all depends on exposure to the elements, wind, sun, salt spray, etc. This particular house is now over eight years old and the siding still looks great. The hand-dipped shingles obviously are more labor intensive if done in the field, but you can also buy them already factory dipped. The dipping process is good because it coats all the surfaces of the shingle, not just the front exposed surface. Eventually when the shingles need to be refinished usually a new fresh coat applied to the top surface is all you'll need. Be careful with power washing since you can very easily damage cedar shingles which are quite soft. Also, keep in mind that the more opague the stain, the less frequently refinishing will be needed.

Cedar Creek Lumber
The quality of the shingles that are hung at the very beginning of the project also make a big difference. Look for nice, tight even grain Cedar Shingles from a good source that uses old growth, coastal Western Red Cedar blocks. Correct Installation is also very important. We used a #1 5x shingle on our cabin in Eastern Washington, which is exposed to heavy sun, snow and some driving rain. We chose not to pre-stain and have not done anything to them in the 4 years they have been up. Granted, for a home, I would definitely recommend pre-staining to help protect, but this is a good example of buying quality from the start and having excellent results.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The overall style of the home is Arts and Crafts meets Coastal Shingle Style meets modern times. Each facade has a unique composition that responds to the immediate context (such as neighboring houses) and greater context (views of the Manasquan River), yet common elements tie all four sides together."Most of the architecture in the neighborhood is quite traditional, so we kept the front facade more conservative," says Bubnowski. This side is a good example of how he balances symmetry and asymmetry. While the house has a symmetrical outline, the placement of the front door and other elements is asymmetrical.
Rachel Grace added this to Renovation Detail: The Awning Window
Designer Richard Bubnowski perfectly paired an awning window with exposed rafters, knee braces, cedar shakes and square tapered columns, to create the quintessential Craftsman seaside home.
1. Have a plan A ... and a plan B and C too. Even when you set what seem like perfectly reasonable goals, things have a way of coming up unexpectedly to bump your project completion date further and further back. Having a back-up plan (or two) is key.I find it helps immensely to think of your goal in three parts. There is the ideal goal — if everything went right and there were no snafus, this is what you would want done by a certain date. Then there is your plan B, where you pare down your list to the essentials. To make a plan C, pick just one thing that if you got done would still make you feel somewhat accomplished.
