In our area, it is likely a mix of fir and some redwood.

The Owners took a sample and had the contractor match it. I've asked for the formula as this question has come up before but they can't find the can. I'm so sorry. In any case when choosing paint color, it is always best to try a number of samples and test in the context of your home and the next to the adjacent color - what color is adjacent will always change the appearance of the color next to it. Good luck

What Houzz contributors are saying:

When the owners first saw the house, recent renovations had made it less like the original cabin and more like a house. Alper carefully incorporated the best of both features into the remodel. All the new siding and trim on the exterior matches the existing colors.Although the 4-acre property feels very isolated, the cabin is just 20 minutes from town. The homeowners planted a few Japanese maple trees, but the natural surroundings make additional landscaping unnecessary.
