What Houzzers are commenting on:

These are slightly more versatile than plywood, as they have excellent weathering characteristics. They’re sold in 4- by 8-foot and 4- by 10-foot sheets, and joint patterning and module are important parts of the overall design. The rectilinear panel shapes lend themselves to geometric compositions such as the one here. And, while one could argue that the bright red is far from humble, consider the bright red barn: simple in form, volume and material.
