Has anyone use hardypanels

or hardy plank as an alternative to exteriors stucco? I know the fiber cement is great for siding, but I'm looking for 4X8 panels that will not overlap.
1. How do you install them
2. how do you keep the water out of the joints
Home depot carries a 4X8 sheet but they have no idea how to install. I checked their website, and they only have installation instructions for narrow overlapping siding.
if any of you know of a better product, any info will be
greatly appreciated.
this is the look I'm after

  • Avatar pinksugarblue What type of cookie sheets do you use...AND?
    Jan 23, 2009 by pinksugarblue | Posted in Cooking & Recipes

    How do your cookies turn out? If i use my nice double-sided sheets, my cookies are great. If i use "regular" sheets, the kind you could pick up from Target, the cookies burn on the bottom and stay goopy on top :-p

    • Like Stagelady above, I use the Air Bake sheets. They have two layers of metal separated by a thin blanket of air in between. This prevents the cookies from burning on the bottom.
      Further, they have only one lifte …etimes.
      They were not cheap, but Ive had mine for 20 years and I use them a couple times a week.

      (Below are the items I have now for sale thru Amazon. At $20 for the set, they are at a great price!)

  • Avatar corsby 1212 I'm shopping for metal siding for a storage shack, how are they priced?
    Nov 17, 2007 by corsby 1212 | Posted in Decorating & Remodeling

    I'm looking for 10 foot high and about 2 feet in width. The pricing sheet I received says - $62.88 per square
    $1.99 per linear foot. Which I don't know how to translate?

    • By the square! My soon to be ex is a siding contractor. Take the length times the width to get the square footage!
