Day Exterior

Wood slat exterior with red accents. Dark woods and pops of color are all over this house on the water in total seclusion and privacy. A little compound of rooflines reminds me of a camp house arrangement of kitchen/ dining and bunk houses. It seemed very appropriate for a lake retreat on Lake Tadpole. Each “building” is rotated and angled to soak in the best views and creates a village of sorts. Cypress and cedar on a bed of stone and a splash of red brings on and almost Adirondak cabin feel.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Sustainable Wood Shake or Shingle RoofPros: Natural and biodegradable, wood shingles from sustainably managed forests are a good option if you have your heart set on the classic look of wood shingles. The Green Depot carries FSC-certified cedar shingles.Cons: Wood shingles are flammable, so they may be controlled in some areas where fire danger is high. They are also fairly expensive (the cost is on par with metal roofing), and last just 15 to 25 years, whereas metal roofs can last 40 to 50 years.
For the siding the architects chose cypress. "I think cypress is much prettier than cedar, with its color range," Dungan says. "It's also denser; the carpenter bees aren't interested in it; and it stains up really nicely." Tennessee fieldstone complements the cedar's range of hues. The red trim adds just a touch of whimsy to the palette of natural materials.The foyer in between the kitchen and master wing has French doors that open onto the deck. The windows are by Monarch and were manufactured in Alabama.
