Help figuring siding coverage


House taken from the dock. All new windows on this side. Anderson 400 series, and 3 sliding patio doors, the one on the main level is a double glider.

You can get more of that. That notch on the back doesn’t have to be there to match the look.

Help figuring siding coverage


So it looks like it has a full first story, the second story is like a finished attic and you have a walk-out basement? And the walk-out basement is finished with brick, so you'd be starting the siding above that?

There is a lot of window area, so I'd say you need to measure the window sizes to get an idea how much area you need to cover. Plus when I guessed 10' height, it was just that - a guess, even if it was a reasonable approximation it would be more accurate if there were actual numbers.

Help figuring siding coverage


Walkout wall will be done in ledgestone about 4 feet up, the rest sided. I know now that I do not have enough of the redwood to cover entire house so I am exploring possibilities. One is to cedar shake the gables. Another is to side one entire side, the back side of the house that is against the tree line with similar reveal cedar siding and staining it the same as the redwood. I need to test the stain with the two woods to see how it matches. I don't have any exterior window trim purchased yet, thinking of just using 1x4 or 1x6 cedar and will pick some up today to see how that stains out too. Anxious to get started.
