Is that another bedroom tucked in the bottom level? - I' m trying to figure out how everything is laid out. Looks like not only a groovy-looking house but also space efficient and very livable!

I am planning a retirement home for myself. I am confused on one issue - Can you please briefly explain to me the difference between an architect (I get it - someone who draws houses!) and a designer? It almost seems that they are one in the same and if you have one, you do not need another. Just looking for clarification. Thank you.

yes we have used hardi plan siding with the wood texture. it still needs to be painted every 8 years or so, depending on the quality of the paint and the building exposure

Can you tell me what kind of Hardi plank to use in a more modern home? Also, what would be the color to use that resembles cedar similar to this beautiful house.
