We have three different kinds of exterior walls on the Contemporary Cottage:
2. Wood Siding
The stucco siding is a commonly used exterior finish for buildings. While it may seem overused in a lot of buildings throughout this area, it's durable, and can be interesting and beautiful if done right. The stucco coating process consists of three steps: the scratch coat, brown coat, and finish coat. The scratch coat goes on wire mesh sometimes referred to as 'chicken wire.'
The wood siding we're using is stained cedar. The cedar was provided to us by the framer and the edges came tongue-&-groove ready.
