Green Cubed Modern Exterior PhotosContemporary Exterior, Seattle

This project was built on spec and pushed for affordable sustainability without compromising a clean modern design that balanced visual warmth with performance and economic efficiency. The project achieved far more points than was required to gain a 5-star builtgreen rating. The design was based around a small footprint that was located over the existing cottage and utilized structural insulated panels, radiant floor heat, low/no VOC finishes and many other green building strategies.

    There actually are screws used in this installation. They are stainless steel pan head screws that almost disappear at any distance. In my opinion, they look great up close as well!

    Very nice - I have stainless screws every 16" on pre-finished Artic White and I was thinking it looks too busy...thanks for your answer. Dunno if my screws are pan head?!

    Hardie Panels also come pre-finished in many colours including Arctic White which we used for a recent project. Indeed, the white looks great with natural materials, such as in the Lee Edwards project and our Napier project which contrasts the white panels with grey barn board.

    I don't know about how the screws would look on the plain looking panels, but, on the one panel that has a stucco finish, it should be really easy to hide the head, say, with a little paint/texture. No?

    Thanks for your questions, here's your answers: butt-joint corners and 3/8" reveals for this open rain-screen application.

    Thank you for your compliments. These are standard 1/4" hardie panels installed over vertical battens. The gaps are left open as part of an open rainscreen application.

    The vertical wood siding is tongue and groove cedar (clear grade). We prefer to install the smooth side out which typically puts a small v-groove between boards. Check with your local lumber yard and siding suppliers for local availability. The finish is a semi-transparent stain which will likely need maintenance every 3-5 years depending on exposure (notice, we always try to protect this material with strategic placement and overhangs clad in durable materials - factory finished hardie panels in this case).
