Minnetonka James Hardie Siding Shake Shingles in Deep Ocean & Portico

Before After

James Hardie Deep OceanThe before and after photos of this amazing transformation need to be seen to be believed. This quaint Minnetonka, MN home was in desperate need of a refresher, and the siding was just the start. In a faded, outdated color with clear residual effects of Minnesota’s tough climate, this siding needed to go. Opting for a more modern yet timeless color, these homeowners landed on the gorgeous, bold, can’t-miss-it color of James Hardie Deep Ocean.

Instead of moving in the direction of siding, the homeowners opted for shakes to give it a unique, homey, coastal feel. We weren’t done yet! To complement the Deep Ocean color story, we trimmed the house in the color Arctic Trim which provides it a stunning contrast.

Finally, we added even more character to the home’s façade by constructing a welcoming portico over the side door. This home kept its timeless feel, but it now looks decades newer and much more valuable.
