Altin have the beige cladding sheets something like a protection foil on them or are they free of any foil or protection device?

Could be that there is a foil on it which is dirty and because of that the colour appears beige and not white.....i canīt imagine a THAT big difference from the render to the reality.

No dirt, if there is a protective foil then it would be of that colour ... and of course of so high quality that it would not peeling off anywhere.

I actually quite like the beige. Earthy tones go well with the desert. I think if it were white it would just stand out like a sore thumb.
