Material Specifications

The exteriors of each Hill Country Classics Custom Home are of Hardiplank™ lap siding, cedar, stucco and, of course, native stone. Native stone has been the basic building component of Hill Country homes since the early Texas pioneers first settled our area. Not only does it blend well with the Hill Country surroundings, but it also resists the extreme Texas elements.
