Kumarnandatk, the exterior is mostly Hardi panel for the light grey and Hardi plank for the white. The darker grey infill is stained cedar.

Are these 4x8/4x9 smooth sheets of hardi-panels that are cut to specific length for look? Are the gaps an overlap? Rabbeted? Thanks!

I have seen these corners done not by mitering, but butt joints with a small gap left for expansion and a type of caulk that expands and contracts with the siding. This is significantly more time consuming than corner boards.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Curb Appeal Begs Your Attention
Siding and Exterior MaterialsWood, fiber cement, stucco, stone, brick, metal and more can be used as an exterior siding material. Which makes the most sense for your home? Would it be vinyl lap siding, which is very cost effective but can buckle; or wood lap siding, which is costly and needs refinishing every few years; or a fiber cement material that is low maintenance but not the least costly? And each material evokes something different aesthetically. For example, a Cape Cod home looks better in horizontal wood siding than stucco, while a home Southwestern-style home is certainly better in stucco than horizontal wood siding.
This house shows a jump in scale in terms of panel sizes, but also how fiber cement can be used alongside other materials. It acts as a frame on this facade, wrapping around volumes covered with materials of a finer scale and different color. I like the way the door is tucked in the gap between the panels and the white volume.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Seal the Deal With Fiber Cement Siding
Mix it up. An especially effective way of using fiber cement panels is to combine them with other materials. Or you can combine fiber cement lap siding with fiber cement panels. The vertical and gridded panels here create orthogonality with the lap siding.
