This Beverly Hills home features Tudor Revival-style diamond-shaped window panes and a steeply pitched roof, though the selection of gray shingles and white board and batten siding offer an updated look.
Designer Lisa Furey's challenge was to design and build a 690-square-foot low country cottage that would include a kitchen, laundry area, bedroom and workspace as well as outdoor space. Board and batten siding, a standing seam metal roof and board and batten composite shutters — all weather-proof choices — give the exterior a farmhouse feel.
Illuminated for the evening, this two-story contemporary home features an exterior of wood shake and white board and batten siding. Concrete slabs separated by narrow strips of grass make up the driveway.
At night, the farmhouse seems to float above its lawn with windows lighting a warm welcome to residents and visitors. The exterior is made from board and batten siding and locally-sourced stone veneer.
Teal blue board and batten paneling give this farmhouse a fresh, funky look. Concrete slabs and gravel create a contemporary, minimal pathway to the front door. A red Adirondack bench serves as a plant holder.
White porch detailing, three window dormers and vertical red batten board siding come together to create a charming barn-style front to this home exterior. A spacious porch area provides the perfect space for relaxing.
Blue board-and-batten siding gives this exterior a distinct farmhouse look while adding a fun pop of color to the porch. Black rocking chairs with colorful pillows and side tables look both welcoming and relaxing.
