1. Similar perspective to yesterday. Would have liked that house to have a red roof.

  2. Is that a slate wall? Don't think I've ever seen such a thing.

  3. very nice texture! I have a prize for you! take a look at my blog!

  4. Me encanta esa textura arrancada, me parece que es pizarra ¿me equivoco?.El punto de vista genial

    un abrazo

  5. When I saw the photo my first thought was: what are all the Non-Germans going to comment? Is there another country where this kind of slated walls are known? I really do not know.
    My parents had their house slated with white and black composite slate, I think this was very hip in the 80's.

  6. On the side of the same building you showed us yesterday. Boy, we certainly don't see much slate around here.

  7. I've never seen slate for siding. We have it as roofing material on some of our older buildings around here.

    Very cool.

  8. Thanks for the comments.

    Joan Elizabeth: Yes, a slate wall. As Martina says below, this had been quite popular in Germany in recent decades. But the house it is cladding is centuries old and I think the slate is not in keeping with its original styles. I suspect it will disaappear when the house is renovated.

    Paula Werner Severo: Muito obrigado pelo commentario e pela entrada no blog.

    Ángel Corrochano: Si, si, es pizarra.

    Martina: Sometimes I see villages around here where old stone cottages have plastic versions of this cladding. It looks so ugly and totally out of keeping with the style.

    Don and Krise: Not quite the same building as yesterday. I have added some info in the entry for 2009-12-08. This slate is on the ironworks owner's house. The sign was from the general store a few metres away.

    Gallow: As Martina says, it seems to be a modern German custom.
