    I feel you! We’re building a cabin and the windows and siding have been 100% the most stressful points. We’ve decided on a board and batten as well and ordered a sample of Hunter Green off of the James Hardie website and it’s so good. I was happy to have found your account, especially the info you gave on LP smartside which I believe we’ll go with and just get the Hunter Green color-matched to sample. It’s been fun following along and if you do go with a deep black/green it will be great to see it IRL before we commit!

    Danica, I feel for you both. Color choices can be challenging with all the different parameters you have to consider. One stood out for me, and the thought crossed my mind looking at both colors, and that is your roof shingles. From my monitor, and I know it can vary with each one, that your shingles have more of a gray/blue cast overall, and depending on the base of the colors you chose it might be a incompatible, thus why you like the colors you chose yet it didn’t seem to work. just a thought…….whatever you end up with I am willing to bet it is going to be just right.

      The shingles have played a big role in choosing the right color. They are fairly neutral in real life but it’s crazy how they too can change colors throughout the day!
