11/3/2010 Today we are installing the hardie board siding. This is concrete siding that can endure all climates. Each board is individually placed then screwed on and then caulked into place. This siding isn't going anywhere as you move your house to your dream view. Hardie board siding gives you beautiful protection for your tiny home it gives you the look of wood grain siding (unlike wood siding it is impenetrable to any kind of climate-related damage). Also, because hardie board siding is constructed with concrete fibers it is impervious to any external elements, such as rain, hail, wind, flying debris, and humidity. Because of its strentgh not only will cement board siding not chip, but it doesn't retain moisture either. Therefore, your siding will never rot or swell. Hardie board siding defends against most insects, such as termites, that can eat away at wood siding. This is helpful in southern climates where moist air and pests thrive all year long. Because hardie board is made of concrete fibers it is even fire-resistant, giving you tiny home further protection from any exterior threat.
