open joint rainscreen for shed

I am building a shed, and I would love to create a modern look with aluminum trim and cement fiber panels. There are many systems available, such as the EasyTrim Reveals system. However, I can't seem to find places that sell small quantities of trim. The market seems to cater to design/build firms and wholesale sales.

Does anyone have experience or advice on finding it for small-scale projects?

(My hope is that the shed would be a pilot project for eventually replacing the siding on some/all of the house, but that is a ways down the road.)

If you go to their website and click dealer locator, there's a large list of dealers that sell the product. If none of them are near you, then I doubt you'll find it.

Thanks, I have done that, but my luck in getting dealers to respond is low. It seems like once they hear about the small scale of the project, they lose interest.

What I am wondering is, has anyone succeeded in getting any similar modern rainscreen hardware, and if so, how?

What exactly is it your looking for?
Where on the planet are you?
Any lumber yard should have the James Hardie panels.
Most often aluminum trim is bent on site to size.

I'm in Seattle, USA.

I'm looking for something like:
Extruded Aluminum Trim | Reveal System - by XtremeTrimŽ

But like I said, it seems to be hard to find in retail/shed-sized project quantities.

I imagine the panels themselves are pretty interchangeable and I can get them at any lumberyard.
