The wall shingles are Rebutted and Rejoined cedar shingles (smooth) which gives the tightest, cleanest joints & lines. The Cabot's stain color is called "natural".

This project used Marvin Windows and Doors. They are all wood windows, so you can choose any paint color you wish. We did several samples on site and, I believe, we chose Benjamin Moore White Dove. But, if you go with a painted window, you should test several paint color samples along side your siding color. This is especially true with white, which will look different in different lighting conditions and geographical locations. Good luck.

I believe that the trim color was Benjamin Moore White Dove. The gutters and downspouts are copper.

ShinglesAvailable in vinyl (polymer), wood and fiber cement, shingles (also called shakes) are well suited for traditionally designed homes that have a shingle, Craftsman or Arts and Crafts aesthetic.Cost: Expect to pay slightly more for shingle siding than horizontal lap siding.
Kristy Woodson Harvey and Beth Woodson added this to Star Home Facade Combo: Stone and Shingle
The stone and shingle look shines in Greenwich, Connecticut. This gorgeous home shows that even a touch of stone, like this fabulous chimney, can lend dimension and variety to an exterior.
