East Coast Craftsman Homes You Covet

Crafts­man homes feel chock full of char­ac­ter: the sim­plic­i­ty of the archi­tec­ture, the nat­ur­al mate­ri­als, the stone details, the open porch­es and over­hang­ing gables. They just have a cozy, warm look that makes you want to call the struc­ture, home.


The style boomed after the elab­o­rate style of the Vic­to­ri­an era.  The sim­ple and hon­est crafts­man home stepped onto the scene and show­cased the hand­i­work and crafts­man­ship that make the home style unique.


After years of wear, some homes need a sid­ing refresh to help keep them look­ing pris­tine and pro­tect­ed. Thank­ful­ly, James Hardie® sid­ing is Engi­neered for Cli­mate®, with per­for­mance attrib­ut­es that take your exact region’s cli­mate into account. The HardieZone® Sys­tem breaks down North Amer­i­ca with cli­mate-spe­cif­ic prod­uct for­mu­la­tions, and there’s one zone specif­i­cal­ly for the East Coast locale you call home.


James Hardie sid­ing and trim is win­ter ready, able to resist shrink­ing, swelling and crack­ing even after years of wet or freez­ing con­di­tions.


When plan­ning your exte­ri­or refresh, you have options with James Hardie prod­ucts. A vari­ety of sid­ing selec­tions high­lights your archi­tec­ture. The clas­sic hor­i­zon­tal boards like HardiePlank® lap sid­ing may be the first sid­ing image that comes to mind, but you can opt for HardiePan­el® ver­ti­cal sid­ing, stag­gered edge or straight edge HardieSh­in­gle® sid­ing, and even dif­fer­ent sid­ing widths and tex­tures (like smooth, Cedarmill© or stuc­co).


Here’s a roundup of Crafts­man style homes clad in James Hardie sid­ing and trim—feast your eyes on these char­ac­ter-filled quar­ters fea­tur­ing Col­or­Plus® Tech­nol­o­gy col­ors. 


Stag­gered Shin­gles and Stone

Shin­gle sid­ing feels right at home on this Crafts­man. The home­own­ers opt­ed for stag­gered edge HardieSh­in­gle sid­ing in Pearl Gray. The light gray sid­ing hue match­es the crafts­man stone details for a cohe­sive and clean look.


















Cozy and Creamy

This cream-col­ored Crafts­man is clad in HardiePlank lap sid­ing in Cob­ble Stone with Hardi­eTrim® boards just a hint dark­er in Sand­stone Beige. The two light neu­tral col­ors blend nice­ly with the red brick foun­da­tion, and the out­door and indoor light­ing add to the invit­ing ambiance.



















Con­tem­po­rary Crafts­man

This Crafts­man style home has a mod­ern feel, with new HardiePlank lap sid­ing in Evening Blue and Hardi­eTrim boards in Arc­tic White. The stand­out brick chim­ney nods to the clas­sic Crafts­man look and the porch is the per­fect van­tage point to take in the hon­est hand­i­work dis­played in the details.
