It's board & batten siding. We used cement board for the board and batten and the lap siding on this house for lower maintenance. Houzz wrote a nice piece on this kind of siding here:

Unfortunately I don't have a record of the exterior color. We most commonly use Benjamin Moore White Dove for white woodwork and exteriors, so that is my best guess.

It is a steel roof. In the specs, it says: Unclad, 24 gauge, 12"O.C., UC-4 steel standing seam system, Color : "Dark Bronze". There are good things and bad things about metal roofs - the good things are that they look great and can last 50 years or more. The bad thing is that they are very expensive - expect to pay $20K-30K more for a metal roof than for an asphalt shingle roof.

What colour and manufacturer are the steel roof, soffit and fascia? Hard to tell if I see dark brown and white or a black and cream colour.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A one-and-a-half-story cottage-style board and batten addition highlights this traditional 1902 foursquare. Notice how the design team played with proportion while installing the board and batten on each story.
