1637 sq ft Stormy gray shake siding and stone masonry gives Craftsman House Plan 55603 a weathered, welcoming appearance. Under sheltering gables we see decorative brackets, and exposed rafters peek out from under the shingles.
These are the board and batten style shutters we have at the cottage. This is exactly the color of shutter and the type of siding I want . either we have this siding or we paint the wood this color . the shutters are easy enough.
James Hardie Shingle shake siding has the same warm, authentic look as cedar shingles, yet it resists rotting, cracking, and splitting.
Pinafore by Zyl Vardos
The Pinafore is one of Zyl Vardos‘ Gothic style tiny houses with a dramatic double dormer roof clad in copper. The exterior consists of cedar shake siding and a custom built mahogany barrel top door with a triangle stained glass window.
A front door can be a lovely way to pay homage to the home’s locale. Here an inlaid chevron panel detail, duck’s-egg blue color, and ship-lantern sconces all lend a seaside New England feel. Photo by Norman Pogson/Alamy
