Pattern & widths of siding - Is there a pattern as to how the siding was arranged on the exterior of the home? What widths did you use?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Would also like to know the size of the siding, is it 1x4, 1x6, 1x8?

Was this Western Red Cedar? There are few "knots" in the wood. I assume since you'r eon the West coast, this is WRC from the pacific NW?

Hi, this is a beautiful house. Did you use aluminum or wood windows? Which manufacturer? Thanks

The siding is T&G cedar, not Hardi-Plank. Someone made a wrong guess on a site and we have been answering this question for a lot of people!

Cary suggested in an earlier message it was a CABOTS Semi Opague Stain (which one I don't know, but looked up Cabots site and have seen the Deck & Exterior Stain in Silver Beech Natural???)

I am able to manufacture siding profiles like this, we specialize in Clear Grade A&BTR Western Red Cedar. This profile is a 1x4 and 1x6 "Flush Face" or "Micro V" . I have not seen the house in person but this would be my best bet. The architect/designer could confirm pattern size. Hope that helps!

What type of wood cladding was used on the exterior - a particular manufacturer? It looks great! Thanks! Stella

It's cedar. There's no manufacturer, just a lumber yard. Thank you for your interest in our work!

Was the cedar milled to create some sort of locking system between boards? How was it installed and/or sealed to avoid water intrusion? This is a really great look!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Sheila Schmitz added this to Houzz Tour: A Little Cottage Grows Up
Remember that original white wood paneling inside? Its wabi-sabi beauty inspired Bernstein to combine three board sizes to create this pattern on the exterior walls. Frosted glass panels in the trellis over the door let in light and keep out the San Francisco drizzle.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to An Architect's Wish List for the New Year
I wish that the materials we use be natural. Nothing made by human hands comes close to what is found naturally. The luminosity, variety and overall character of natural materials bring a home closer to us, as we want to touch, see and experience these homes all the more. As for maintenance, a well-detailed and well-installed natural material will often look good for decades, while most things manufactured can wear out their welcome in much too short a time.Think about using quality natural materials and, if budget is an issue, save money elsewhere, such as by building less house.

It's a Cabot semi-opaque stain. You need to test different grays with your own wood to decide on a color- each batch of wood is so different, color isn't as predictable as paint. Cedar A-grade
