This modified split -level home in Blaine, MN was transformed by the Craftsman’s Choice team. A simple combination of James Hardie lap siding and trim detail brought a new sense of style to this north suburban home.
The jumping-off point was the decision to deepen the neutral palette of this home. James Hardie 6-inch lap siding in Woodstock Brown was chosen to warm up the body of the home. The Woodstock Brown siding nicely brings out the subtle shade variations in the existing brickwork. The James Hardie Woodstock Brown lap siding was repeated on all the gables for a seamless look.
James Hardie Arctic White trim was used in a couple ways to bring definition to the front elevation. The Arctic White trim is slightly arched over the windows and garage for extra definition. This subtle detail adds an understated bit of style to the front facade. The Arctic White trim also nicely delineates the gables and highlights the peaks. Custom- made corbel brackets in the gable peaks add punctuation and flair. The gable vents are also made from James Hardie trim in a contrasting shade to add a cost-effective finishing touch. These subtle details along with the warmth of the new Woodstock Brown siding were the stars of this Blaine, MN success story.
