Kitchen Cabinets- we looked closely at Ikea but ended up getting our cabinets made in Northern California- we chose a plastic laminate with no detailing.
The siding (shown below). We used plywood and battens. The plywood is structural and also acts as our finish sheathing. We love the look of simple board and batten. By avoiding a second layer of finish material we saved tons of money and time.
