Where’s Waldo?

It was a short construction week due to Thanksgiving. However, the exterior first floor siding is now nearly complete. As I get used to the black shou-sugi-ban siding, the more I like it. It has a calming effect.

Next up is the shou-sugi-ban siding for the interior facing walls. I’m anxious to see how it will transform the feel of the hallway and courtyard. Hint, madera means wood in Spanish.

Can you find our house? Taken from the Forum.

    hey there, i was wondering about the shousugiban – since the wood is burnt do you get dirty every time you touch it? or is washing the boards and oiling them enough to keep your hands clean? or are you just making sure that nothing white comes in the vicinity of the burnt cedar.

    a few questions. is the wood “Western Red Cedar” and do you have the name of the guys who burnt it? I live in Los Angeles and want to do this to my house but don’t want to ship the wood in from South Carolina…

  4. Hi, I wish to use as well a shou sugi ban cladding for my new house in the middle of a forest in France. I just wonder if, nearly two years later, the black is still really black ? Did it get “pale ” ? ( sorry for my poor english and thanks for your answer )
