This 1600-square-foot home in East Austin, TX combines gray wood siding with a medium brown stained wood to create a contemporary exterior. A blend of natural stone and mulch provide groundcover, while long horizontal windows show off a sneak peek of the home's interior design.
Charcoal gray siding covers the levels and layers of this modern home. Large windows provide a peak into the home while downstairs patios and a second story balcony expand the living space into the outdoors.
For the secondary siding material, project builders Ray Kash and John Looney installed horizontal clapboards made of rot-proof fiber cement, a combination of wood dust and concrete that's been shaped to look like the real thing.
The approach for this project was to question the notion of the obvious “modern box” addition. The client needed to expand their kitchen space and create a new master suite. The design re-interprets the farmhouse style into a spaciously sculpted interior volume.
