River Build Exterior

Holy it's been way too long since I've written a post about the house.  Between being super involved in our house build and working I lost touch!

I am going to write a series of posts over the next few weeks to cover a lot of the design choices for our build.  We are actually still ongoing, counter top is being decided upon, range hood was just ordered, and side step still needs to be built....

The exterior products used:

-Cedar ship lap siding 4"
-Cedar tongue and groove soffit 4"
-Azek paneling custom cut from 4'x8' sheets
-Marvin windows and patio doors, aluminum exterior cladding, clear pine interior
-Fasica board is wood covered aluminum

I had wanted a 'J Channel' made by Frye Reglet however logistics and timing was tight to order them so our builder offered to custom make our corners which turned out identical to the Frye Reglet, lucky us :)

We stained our cedar siding with an eco-friendly semi-transparent stain made by Sansin.  It's a 7-8 year stain compared to a traditional 4 year product.

My end goal was a modern look, and not wanting to use the hardy panels the azek was a good fit.  It remains unpainted but can be painted at anytime in the future if we choose too.

We've started a bit of landscaping by laying patio stones and crushed gravel to keep the dirt and mud at bay.  The plan for next spring is to possibly pave and build a number of planters in the front to really define the green space in front of the home.

Till next time,
