Achieving the modern look with Hardie™ Fine Texture Cladding.

No matter the style of our homes – from bungalow to beach house, cottage to 70s chic – renovators are looking to create ground floor extensions or upper story additions that stay true to their home’s style. While giving it a modern twist, that is.

An interior architect shows how to use different materials on the exterior.

Using a mix of cladding adds richness to home designs and streetscapes. James Hardie sat down for a virtual coffee with Gilchrist Homes to find out their secret for getting the mixed cladding look right.

Transforming this family home into a treasured modern abode

Step one, buy an unpolished property. Next, flip it. Then cash out. That was the plan when Amy and Bodhi secured their purchase in Old Sapphire, Coffs Harbour. But like most things in life, plans changed & this was now to be their forever home.
