The garage exterior at the HGTV Smart Home 2013 located in Jacksonville, FL has beige siding and blue accents with palm trees giving it a tropical feel. The exterior is clad in fiber cement siding, designed to mimic the look of classic cedar or cypress shakes.
This bungalow combines cedar shakes with board and batten siding to create a distinctive looking modern twist on an old theme. Lots of windows keep things bright inside and the pediment over the entrance is a unique focal point.
As guests make their way around the side of the house, they'll follow a driveway made of reclaimed granite from the Yangtze River. A garage with cedar shaker siding sits at the end, with a wood gate leading into the garden.
The front porch of this coastal Low Country cottage is the perfect place to relax at sunrise. Neutral geometric prints add interest to the plush outdoor furniture that's perfect for reading or taking in the view. To combat the harsh sea air, the home features weather-resistant cedar shingle siding and Garapa decking, a durable, sustainably harvested tropical hardwood. (HGTV Dream Home 2013)
To update the look of this lake house's front exterior facade, designers rejuvenated the cedar shingle roof and had new copper gutters installed. Blue siding was put on the house, and the existing garage door was replaced with a mahogany one, and the Dutch door was restored to bring back the home's charm. To put the finishing touch on the home, new landscaping was added, making the home feel cozy and inviting.
