An exterior for a home can be relatively inexpensive with vinyl, but vinyl isn't always the most aesthetic. Exteriors can also get very expensive with stones or metal panels. For this renovation we will use accents of wood or fiber-cement board (shown as blonde wood) while the majority of the home will get vinyl siding (pale green) to keep costs minimal.
The home will have about 1400sf of vinyl and 200sf of the accent material. The slide below has some prices from an RSMeans 2010 book to give an idea of how quickly prices can go up with different materials (http://www.rsmeansonline.com/).
