The vertical board siding is Tight Knot Western Red Cedar.
The horizontal lap siding is integral color Fiber Cement. We used 'Cembonit', but it's not currently available. An alternate would be 'SwissPearl'.
Thank you for your interest!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Hill added this to Wood Home Exteriors Branch Out
Another look at the same house makes it clear this framing is three-dimensional. Besides raw cedar, steel and cement panels are used for the exterior. The three materials seem to interlock, accentuating the house's volume and imparting some verticality to it, especially with the wood.
