      Hi Trudy, It very possibly is a HardiePlank siding. The photo was chosen more for the color than the material for this particular post.

    I’m looking to rock my fireplace and came across your pictures.. love the rock in the Genova plan 1191-D, can you tell me what kind of rock that is and what color, any details would be great. Thanks for sharing your pictures, they are beautiful.

      Hi Lori, We are not involved in the building process so I’m afraid we do not have information on the products that the homeowner used. I’m sure you could share the photo with a local supplier and they could match the rock and color. Let us know if you have other questions, 1-800-388-7580 or [email protected].
