Unique siding ideas

February 3rd, 2010

We were very lucky to find a really cool building with a beautiful facade, but the front of the building does not inform the back. The back is a dirty beige stucco that desperately needs to be changed at some point. This could be years down the road, but I’m keeping track of all the beautiful potential siding out there.

Here are some favorites:

I just love copper as a material. We have a PH copper exterior light at the front of the store and it would be so cool to use copper siding at the back. It’s durable, beautiful but probably way too expensive…

This beautiful Swedish home has a black painted plywood exterior! Now that seems a bit more affordable (but still expensive when you consider all the labor costs). You know here at Kitka we love plywood but I wonder how well it handles the outdoors?
