    Can you please tell me what I need to describe to my builder about the placement of the composite shingles in order to get this look? They don't look like they overlap like common composite roofs.

    They are a standard comp roof - heavy duty - nothing special.

    Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: Natural Wood Siding Minus the MaintenanceApr 28, 2014

    Selecting Materials for WeatheringThe untreated western red cedar on this exterior is paired with a natural copper chimney. Both of these materials will age differently over time. The copper will stay bright for a week at most, then transition to a light purple and quickly to dark bronze, and eventually to a bright green verdigris; the red cedar will darken with age. When selecting materials for their natural weathering characteristics, seeking low-maintenance ones makes perfect sense. Copper, and metals in general, as well as stone and concrete are complementary material choices for a weathering material palette. Be sure to pay attention to the final coloration of the substrate of your unfinished siding. While many of the woods seen in this ideabook favor a silvery gray, red cedar on a wall can weather to a dark brown. Of course, this depends on exposure and physical environment. Look at buildings nearby and you’ll quickly get a sense for how materials weather in your climate. Certain physical environments, such as saltwater ones, will bring out different tones in different materials.

    A similar scale and texture can also help the roof communicate with the walls, like on this pitched roof house. The minimal overhangs and large windows give its traditional form a contemporary quality.

    The weathered wood shingles give the Sea Ranch Residence by Nick Noyes a traditional appearance, but those large windows in dark frames hint at a modern interior. The chimney acts as a hinge between the two living and sleeping volumes, which are connected by a small hallway.
