New Renderings from ISA with Hardie & Stucco Siding

I noticed today that it’s been a while since I’ve posted any pretty pics so here are the latest renderings from ISA. We have been discussing how to create an interesting, modern and affordable facade for weeks and this is what we’ve gravitated towards.



You can see that we have a bit of a vertical theme here. We are showing James Hardie Vertical Siding Panels cut to two foot widths in a few shades of gray. There is also some very light gray stucco on the facade of the 100k house in the background that will will most likely put on the rear of both homes as well. The windows are now all in vertical orientation as well to fit in with the 2′ widths of the Hardie siding.

ISA is still experimenting with possible picture windows on the second floor of the back of each home or some type of contrasting horizontal window element. They are also looking into how we might be able to incorporate a down and dirty green wall of ivy over the entire rear facade that is Southwest facing. This would further passively cool the home in the summer while providing a unique green element to set the home apart (I guess it’s set apart quite a bit already).

I’m really happy with the new renderings and really can’t wait to see it come to life. We are still checking with the Hardie reps and investigating ways to make the install as easy as possible. We’ve all heard horror stories about how difficult vertical Hardie can be to install and we hope to simplify the process to keep labor costs low.

If you enjoyed reading this post I can promise you'll love our new writing over at Postgreen Homes. Yeah, we know that's the same thing your favorite band said and their new album is nowhere near as good as their early stuff, but seriously, we are actually still getting better.

There also isn't much conversation to be had here . . . at least not with us. So come on over to the Postgreen Homes Blog and tell us what you think of our new(ish) digs and crazy ideas. We will be sure to tell you what we think of your opinion.

Like the new exterior treatment, looks waaay better than the ‘blanks’ you’ve been posting. ‘Course, that being said, it’s undoubtedly been a work in progress for you…

One suggestion regarding ‘a wall of ivy’: I’ve hung many pieces of ‘stock panels’ over the years for just that purpose, and it works fine and doesn’t cost the arm & leg. You’ve seen it before; 4′-6″ w. x 16′ l., 1/4″ dia. galv. steel rod laid into a 4″ x 6″ grid. The big trick will be how to attach it to your wall to minimize the penetrations, but y’all seem to be more than up to handling that issue…..I space it off the wall generally 2″, to allow the ivy to be trained as necessary and pruned as required (…and it will be required….the stuff finds the smallest crack and dives into it…..I’ve seen it show up indoors….).

Great idea Jerry. I’d love to see a picture of the structure you’re talking about. I think I know what you are talking about but it’s a bit difficult to picture.

We were also discussing chain link as it is pretty cheap and we could even recycle the fence that is currently surrounding the lot.

I also spoke to someone who has had a lot of luck with a local, non-invasive ivy that treats stucco well and does not destroy it over time. I’ll have to track that species down again…

I had mentioned Tamlyn products for the joints in Hardie Board here before. Here is something I found on the commercial side of the James Hardie site showing reveal joint and rainscreen details for Hardie Panel.

It mentions Fry Reglet as another source for aluminum joint extrusions.

That’s a great link to the commercial side of the Hardie panels. I have not seen those details before. I’ll have to look for a warranty on that site also since they won’t warranty any panel install on our homes.

looking great chad. we are doing the creeper wall too, and using hurricane fencing because it’s cheap and off the shelf. i think it’s basically the same as chain-link and will give a good full coverage because the links are so close together.

You guys may be way beyond this…..but I recently completed a successful project with a hardi siding rainscreen. It seems that if you use a Vidiflex 2000 membrane as your building wrap, the reglets become superfluous. Reveals of a 1/4″ allow for a simple installation and no additional funds for aluminum. But then again, it is a very different, and potentially less refined, look. Anyway, I love the project………

Sounds interesting, Seth. Do you have any images?

Hi, I am new to blogging. I know you are beyond the siding stage so maybe an answer at this point is unrealistic but I am curious how you detailed the joint in the hardie panel siding. I have shied away from it due to anticipated difficulty. Here in Vermont I use hardie planks horizontally over homeslicker. Thanks. Nice project.

joan – We are using simple Z-flashing on the horizontal joints bent from stock on site. For the vertical joints we are caulking, but searching for a better way in the future…

Great design! Thanks for sharing. Stucco siding is really great in preserving structure. I, myself, opt for this kind of material.

Hi, I came across your site/post while researching some ways to use hardie panel in this sort of arrangement for a project I have in Virginia, I see in April of 2009 you were using Z-flashing on the horizontal and caulking for the vertical joints, have you come up with another way since then that works better, and what were/are you using for a substrate? Thanks! And I love the concept you have here!

The Best in UV protection for open seam claddings like this:
Also, instead of homeslicker, I suggest Delta Dry which allows drainage ans stops bulk water and moisture( which homeslicker does not)
