    What is the color name and manufacturer of the window trim color as well as the entry way?

    I believe it is SW Attitude Grey. The entry is a clear finish over the cypress siding.

    Is the siding mounted as a rainscreen, or simply attached the framing, over a waterproof membrane? Thank you

    Terry thanks for the question.
    This house actually has what is known as reverse board and batten. Because of the assembly it actually works very similar to a rain screen. So no, it should not hold water.

    You can also do the siding vertically as tongue and groove. However in that application it should be done on furring strips to create a drainage plane behind the siding.

    Could you please tell me what species of wood was used on the vertical siding? Was it milled as a vertical lap or is it truly reverse board and batten?

    It is a ‘ground gutter’ with a french drain at the drip line

    Can you describe what you mean by 'ground gutter'? is it recessed with a perforated drain below ground and a surface drain? I notice that you have a bluestone patio. is it grouted? or does the water run through it?

    Can you tell us more about the siding? Is it a custom tongue and grooved board? or a reverse board and batten system? Thank you.

                    Charisma in Charlotte Arriving at a very different result, but using many of the same techniques as in the previous project, this home in Charlotte, North Carolina, proudly exhibits the means of its making. Again the fine details, the joints, play a prominent role in unifying the distinct components of the building. Set in a neighborhood with an aesthetic code for design that was at odds with the client’s directive for a structure that was light, open and airy, the architect devised an ingenious solution. He oriented the restrained and familiar gable volume toward the street, grounding it on a heavy stone base, and developed a more unrestrained and open pavilion to house the public living areas and the porch toward the rear.Articulation. At the entry facade, the base middle and top have each been articulated to reduce the scale and accentuate the first and second stories. The reverse board and batten siding is further broken by a belt line of trim at the second-floor windowsills rather than at the second-floor line. This reduces the apparent scale of the two-story volume facing the street, making it feel like one and a half stories. It’s a visual trick accomplished via a simple shadow joint that’s particularly effective on tall walls.

                    What Houzzers are commenting on:

                    Up and down siding is kind of cool.
