Hardie Panel siding-how the panels are mounted? Is there a rain screen behind it..we get freezing and thawing. " Behind the cement panel siding are 1x3 cedar furring strips that create a 3/4" air gap between the siding & the building wrap. They are tacked into place with a pin nailer & once painting is complete, stainless steel screws with finish washers are added to secure the panels & add some bling. Amy houzzer: I'm having a hard time finding builders who understand this type of design. // "When we built this 4 years ago, it was like pulling teeth. A couple years ago, a switch flipped, and now all of the siders have caught up & everyone seems to understand the basics of a rain screen system & how to install one." BENJAMIN MOORE FLINT AF-560
material of dark grey blocks on top of the door is www.parklex.com / a resin-impregnated wood product. Fascia is Bonderized steel: galvanized steel that is processed through a phosphate bath. This provides a corrosion inhibiting, crystalline zinc phosphate, micro-porous surface that promotes adhesion of top coatings. // Bonderized steel is actually Galvanized G90 that has been put through a phosphate bath and has a layer of Chromate applied and dried leaving it ready to accept paint. The process produces a dull gray colored finish. "Paint Grip" holds paint well and is popular in the rainwater goods industry: rain gutters, downspouts, roof flashings, and roof valleys. In recent years architects have used Bonderized for roofing and siding WITHOUT applying paint to the steel. This is done to achieve a beautiful dull gray WEATHERED look. www.bonderized.com/about-bonderized-steel.html
Is fiber cement the same as cement panel? "The fiber cement is sold as name brands like James Hardie, Certainteed, or in this case we used Nichiha (good recycled content). They are all made of a combination of cement and wood fibers, long lasting and pretty inexpensive. Much less than stucco. They're starting to become the norm in lapped siding. They also come in panels for more board and batten type applications, which is what we used under the window pictured above the garage."
"corrugated Galvalume metal siding in a slightly warmer color than the standard silver - typical gauge, fairly sure 24 gauge, same as the Kynar roofing material." --- Galvalume is proprietary steel with a coating consisting of 55% aluminum, 43.4% zinc and 1.6% silicon over the base metal to protect it from the elements. This coating has superior corrosion resistance which gives it two to four times the life span over traditional galvanized metal. Ideal for roofing and siding, outdoor cabinetry, gutters, pipes. Galvalume should not be used on, in, or around concrete or mortar. Concrete and mortar are highly alkaline environments; bare and painted Galvalume suffer rapid corrosion when in contact with mortar and concrete. The zinc and aluminum in Galvalume enhance both the positive and negative effects of aluminum. Galvalume has barrier corrosion resistance and heat resistance similar to aluminized material and good bare-edge galvanic protection and forming qualities like galvanized material. Galvalume is more corrosion-resistant than galvanized steel, but because aluminum provides barrier protection instead of galvanic protection, scratches and...
This unique home draws influence from the clean, practical lines of contemporary architecture, the modest comfort and iconic look of Midwestern farms, and a touch of Cape Cod cottage aesthetic. Many old farmsteads in our region were comprised of several buildings that all faced inward towards one another. Our client wanted their new home to have that same communal, almost village-like feel.
siding is a cement board panel, and color is integral with the panel. CBF at www.cbf11.com. It was installed over a liquid applied air infiltration barrier with core-vent venting strips and mechanical stainless steel fasteners. We also installed black masking behind the panels to project the air infiltration barrier that we had used and to darken the shadow line." flipcaldwell- The fasteners appear invisible. Did you mask or cover them in some way? Demerly Architects: The fasteners are exposed stainless steel with hex heads for a cleaner look.
Window color is SW Wild Sage, factory-applied by manufacturer Weathershield. The stucco is an integral color - my spec says that we asked for samples ...too pink especially in sunlight - does read very differently (as do most colors) in sun vs. shade. My goal had been to match the dusty faded brown of dried oak leaves -- which is similar to the color of the earth on this site."
midcentury modern architects -so relevant today, modest budgets and simple materials they often used to get these results. We need to discover ways to do more with less... A perfect example is the simple exterior walls of painted vertical siding found on many midcentury homes. The original builder of this house, Joseph Eichler, constructed hundreds of midcentury modern houses and, in the process, perfected using budget-oriented materials to great success. The dark gray siding, which even covers the garage doors, provides just the right backdrop to the dramatic exposed beams and overhanging roof."

wood siding is 6" tongue and groove redwood with a clear coat. If your house has a lot of sun exposure, use a colored stain so it doesn't bleach out quickly.
What is the color of the siding and roof? eric: the green-grey range, commonly called "greige"
First Lamp -- This is sheet metal, the same type used for standing seam metal roofs.
First Lamp: "You can do it with regular standing seam, although I recommend at least 24ga so it will fold neatly. The installers clip just the seams, fold the material, then place a small metal corner cap over the gap in the seam and secure it with gutter caulk."
