Yeah, we just put up the Hardie Board on our house. I do all of the interior work but hired a contractor for this. There is a lot of dust and if you are going to drill through it to mount anything, like I just did, make sure to get a masonry bit or you risk cracking it. I custom ordered from a building supply store instead of going to Lowes or HD so got a much better choice with only a two week wait. @tangomom - did you overlap the boards? Our contractor put them up against each other and didn't caulk the space, I am worried he botched this part.

I am in the process of building a few radiator covers. They aren't that hard and you only need a few tools. Miter cuts for the molding are probably the hardest. The plans I got are from This Old House.
