Board and Batten Siding

This is a simple facing, but I absolutely love the way it looks. Especially if painted white and paired with black roofs, trim, lighting, or hardware.
I see board and batten a lot in Northern California. Here, the ranch house reigns in the newer (read: post 1940s) communities. Love it paired with a metal roof, like in this photo of a newly built Sonoma ranch house. This is architecture done right. Here is a similar look at an inn in Napa Valley. You have to look closely to see the board and batten.It definitely has a bit of a modern farmhouse feel. ravel.Love it here too with the stone base. (I'm sure there's a name for the band going around the bottom portion of the house, but I can't think of it right now!)More white board and batten paired with a metal roof. Raise your hand if you'd like to have this outdoor fireplace.Love the board and batten on this little outbuilding.
Kelley of The Polished Pebble has white painted board and batten on the exterior of her Southern California house, as seen here in Country Living.Another porch.
Here is an example of board and batten paired with a shingled roof.
And another shingled roof. Board and batten is simple enough, that with traditional black shutters, it still pairs well this rustic table and chairs. I absolutely love this board and batten entry with the black door, overhead light, and gravel. Here's another example with a painted black screen door.

Board and batten siding looks great in other colors too:

black with white trim

dark green with white trim

Even various shades of grey.

Took a drive out to Sac town with some friends recently, and stopped to check out some of the funky little towns along the way. Did some wine tasting drinking, ate some lobster and crab. It was pretty much fabulous.
Here's Isleton. Many of these buildings still have the original metal siding from when they were erected in the late 1800s. Many Chinese lived here when they were building the deltas, many still do.
I like this one (check out the Chinese characters above the 2nd story door)
