The siding is Poplar bark shingles which originated in the mountains of North Carolina and has been revived by the company Bark House in Spruce Pine, NC. We used Premium Grade shingles by Bark House which are between 1"-1 1/2" thickness. Here's a link to some more detailed specs on Bark House bark siding, they ship all over the country and may have a distributor near you.

Good eye! Yes, the siding is BarkHouse bark siding--an awesome natural product that doesn't require additional maintenance or upkeep. Their book, Bark House Style (available on Amazon and B&N) has lots of great pictures, history and ideas for application. Sorry for the delayed response, thanks for the inquiry!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The bark shingles have a long local history. "Bark in the shingle form first appeared in the resort town of Linville, just a few miles from Banner Elk, in the late 1890s," says Simmons. "Architect Henry Bacon, who designed the Lincoln Memorial, is credited with its formal introduction. Chestnut barkwas used on these original structures, some of which can still be found intact in the area today." The use of bark shingles halted with the chestnut blight that hit in the early 1900s until 1990, when another husband-and-wife team founded BarkHouse, which brought them back (they use poplar bark). "Tree bark was traditionally a waste product but is now a sustainably manufactured, maintenance-free product with natural beauty that will remain intact for decades," says Simmons.Windows: Kolbe Push Out Casement Windows in Chutney, Mountain Lumber Company in Boone, North Carolina
More typical rectangular windows derive many of their differences from details. In this case the color of the window frame is particularly important, setting it off from the bark siding. The inclusion of divided panes also gives the window a finer scale that is appropriate given the siding.

Mullions can be wide or, as shown here, narrow.
