No matter the time of year, it’s always exciting to pack up the car and head to the lake house for the weekend. There’s just something about cozying up and relaxing with a lake in plain sight—it’s a Midwest thing.
After all, the Midwest is known for its lakes. There are thousands in the region and a few great big ones, too. And Minnesota isn’t lacking in their count of the blue beauties—the state’s lakes provide about 45,000 miles of lake shoreline, plenty of ideal space for your lake house getaway.
Regardless of if your lake house is a cabin, farmhouse or newer construction, siding your home in James Hardie® siding and trim will give you the peace of mind you need to truly relax. Here’s why:
The ColorPlus® Technology palette is vast: Whether you want your lake house to blend in with the pines and lake, or pop out of its natural surroundings, James Hardie has an artful array of colors to suit your design preference. From neutrals to warms, and fresh to rich, the James Hardie collection is curated by color experts so each hue complements—not combats—one another.
The siding will stay bright: While paint and other siding finishes can dull over time, James Hardie’s ColorPlus Technology is engineered to help resist damaging UV rays, so your color will stay vibrant longer with less maintenance.
Here are a few inspiring Midwest lake houses with siding that’ll make you feel so protected you’ll just want to sit back and relax and enjoy the lakeside view:
