Hardie Board – Tarrytown Remodel Exterior
Thanks for visiting our Tarrytown remodel project. In this post we deal with replacement of the T-111 plywood siding on the addition with new Hardi Board siding. Surprisingly, the siding on the old part of the house from 1949 was in great shape! Our goal was to bring back the original 1949 look of the house.
The first thing we did was get rid of the old 1970’s pergola on the front. We had added this in the 1970’s, when rough cedar was all the rage. Now the pergola was just a busy mess. The front is less cluttered now without it. New fascia boards tied the repair together. The original look of our bungalow is coming back!
The deck wood was power-washed, but still looked very worn and gray. We found a great paint for the deck – Super Deck at Sherwin Williams. This was added later, and really improved the appearance.
Siding replacement is getting started on the addition part of the house. The old T-111 siding from 1971 had deteriorated. By contrast, the 1949 siding on the original house was in fine shape!
We added Tyvek drainwrap and sealed the windows. Then new Hardie Board siding was installed. This shows the first few steps of the install.
Exterior siding removal is in progress. Chris is hard at work, rocking cut-off sweat pants and knee pads.
Here’s a shot of the new Hardie Board siding on the bottom, juxtaposed against the old T-111 plywood siding above it.

Chris is here rolling paint on the Hardie Board siding panels. Note: Siding is a lot easier to paint on the ground before it goes up 3 stories high!
Our Tarrytown remodel exterior is coming along! We were able to paint most, but not all, the siding before it went up.
Finally finished! Jim designed an expanded board and baton pattern for the siding, using wide “batons” in an orderly and logical pattern. On the old (1949) part of the house, the original 105 Drop Siding just needed painting.
The new exterior paint color is Cocoon by Sherwin Williams. The stair treads were later painted with Super Deck from Sherwin Williams.
New stepping stones were added as a pathway to the office. A nice layer of fresh grass made the backyard much more inviting. Crepe Myrtles were added later along the fence.
The entire exterior received a coat of paint. We opted to paint the window trim and sashes the same color, rather than pull them out with a contrasting color. The blended trim and siding created a simpler, more modern look.
A new standing seam metal roof was added. A flagstone path made a nice landscape border and walking path. New plants and mulch gave it a finished look. Here’s a look at the completed exterior.
