    Asphalt-sided houses

    Hi all!

    I have read this from an american:

    "I lived in an asphalt-sided house..."

    Does it mean the sidewalks around the house were made of asphalt? (no green spaces, etc)
    I just wanted to be sure that he or she did not mean the walls were covered in asphalt, which sounded very strange... :)

    Thanks a lot!

    Here's a photo http://www.sunningdales.com/images/s24.jpg

    Asphalt Shingle & Rolled Roofing
    The illustration shows an old barn which has been sided with traditional roofing material. Asphalt shingles are still commonly used for siding for mansard style homes
    and other contemporary styles.
