The fun is in the use of Hardipanel
, a cement-based exterior siding material, to cover the standard, uninsulated, 2-by-4 wood frame in an elegant grid pattern, and in the gently sloping galvanized metal roof, which creates the impression of a lid being lifted.
The fiber-cement siding for the tower and part of the garage wing is made of Hardipanel
, with Harditrim, which are noncombustible and won't rot, split, warp, or buckle.
The leader in fiber-cement technology, James Hardie Building Products manufactures a broad range of building products, including HARDIPLANK lap siding, HARDIPANEL
vertical siding, HARDISOFFIT soffits, HARDIBACKER tile underlayment and HARDISHAKE and HARDISLATE roofing.
