The Craftsman’s Choice team delivered a dramatic transformation of this two-story home in Eden Prairie, MN using James Hardie Deep Ocean. We collaborated with the client using our design software to perfect this combination of James Hardie ColorPlus lap siding, shutters, shingle shakes and Board and Batten siding. The metal roof on the front porch completes this stunning update.
When looking at the before picture of this home, you can see the typical boring beige vinyl siding that is so prevalent. These homeowners were ready to get the exterior of their dreams. The selection of James Hardie ColorPlus lap siding in Deep Ocean for the main body of the home was the starting point of this elegant transformation. The choice of James Hardie shingle shakes in Deep Ocean on the second story of the home provides subtle textural variation while maintaining a pleasing uniform body color. The James Hardie trim seamlessly ties the two siding styles together.
From there, the accents were selected to set off the depth and richness of the Deep Ocean siding. Classic James Hardie Board and Batten siding in Aged Pewter beautifully highlights the gable over the garage. James Hardie shutters in Aged Pewter provide contrast to the Deep Ocean body color while coordinating with the Aged Pewter Board and Batten siding over the garage. Crisp Arctic white accents on the porch ceiling and columns set off the stately blue of the Deep Ocean siding.
A modern metal porch roof perfectly complements the James Hardie Aged Pewter Board and Batten siding and shutters. As you consider ways to create a punch for the front of your home, adding some metal roofing in small areas helps create a texture and color contrast that can really make a difference.
