New home exterior design help!

gtdreamJanuary 8, 2013
Any ideas and comments are appreciated we are tying to decided how to clad our new home exterior. As of right now we are thinking of going with the elevation that has board and batten. The siding color will be Hardi (Boothbay Blue) All trim and board and batten would be bright white. The front porch and corebels will be timber framed in natural fir.
Thank you!

The second drawing with the lighter area directly above the huge garage seems to draw some of the attention away from it and bring the focus more up to the pushed out window. I would pass on the natural fir. If you look at the photo directly above it looks like someone tacked the wood on as an afterthought. Maybe paint that a third darker color like charcoal. Something that would go with the rock on the garage.
