Potic Progress: Siding

To our great pleasure, we pulled into Potic Cottage's driveway to discover siding on the house. After quite a bit of creative deliberation, James decided on a hardy plank panel with batten trim on the addition, with mahogany to be installed on the front facade. As for color, we wanted to keep the arts and crafts mood without losing the modernity of James's design. We're thinking of painting the original portion of the house a charcoal grey. A big thanks to contractor Tim Hilgendorff and his crew from Timberhill Constructionfor incredible craftsmanship-- we can hardly wait to see it complete.

Wow, Nadine! Jim nailed it! What a perfect solution to the Rubik's Cube he added to the house. It looks amazing. The horizontal band along the top of the window line is inspired! Can't wait to see it in person.

Oh I'm so glad you like it, Tom. We are thrilled with the way it's turning out, especially all the different options we considered, as you well remember!
