I’ve been a big fan of James Hardie fiber cement siding for over 12+ years now and I’ve had great success with their products. It’s only been the past 6 or 7 years that I’ve been using it in rather modern styled homes. When most people think of Hardie Siding this is what they picture…
|Very traditional outside corners with 1×4 boards on each side.|
|That wood grain impression is terrible. FYI this is not Hardie brand siding and this is not one of my houses.|
First, if we want a more modern and clean look you really need to use Smooth Hardie siding! Look at how clean this house looks with smooth siding 4″ exposure and “mitered” corners.
|My carpenters take time to caulk these woven corners as the Hardie is being installed.|
|Super crisp! Traditional & modern at the same time.|
|No landscape yet in this picture, but you get the idea. Front house on the left is 1940’s, we added the 2 story in the rear.|
|Architect Nick Deaver does amazing work. Love this steel pop-out bay window.|
|Trimless windows, but a traditional wood sill that projects out.|
These outside corners look like they are mitered but in fact they are woven. One board projects past the next to form a weave.
This photo above shows the woven corners before we painted. Notice the grey caulk that the carpenters did during the siding install.
Thanks for letting me show off some of this work!
