Need help with planning exterior siding
How do we plan the exterior of our transitional craftsman home? I don't like the idea of mixing the foundation with fake stone and brick, so I am leaning towards just doing brick. Advice on that? If we stick with all brick, we can either do columns with no brick base or with a brick base. We can combine lap siding, shingles, and board and batten, but we can't decide what to put where. I don't like the craftsman windows & thinking either paned completely or no panes. We are considering Monteray Taupe Hardi....or other natural colors. We also need help with the back of the house, which will be visible to other pond neighbors. The builder says just to stick with all Hardiplank (lap board). I think I will have to upload that elevation via a different post. Thanks.
