ABOUT THE PROJECT
This modern townhome featuring KUJAKU 3.0 by reSAWN TIMBER co. is located in the tree-lined streets of Greenwich Village – now a hub of popular cafes, bars, and restaurants.
KUJAKU 3.0 by reSAWN TIMBER co. features CHARRED CYPRESS burnt in the Japanese style of shou sugi ban. KUJAKU 3.0 can be used for interior or exterior wall cladding. For exterior cladding, we offer Select Grade. For interior applications, we offer #2 common and Select Grade. The higher the grade, the better it is felt the wood will perform, especially in exterior applications. See our CHARRED Grading Guide for more info.
It is carefully charred, misted with water, cooled, brushed, and then stained/sealed. The topcoat sealer is applied prior to shipping (for exterior applications, we recommend sealing the backside as well as the face). The burning process accentuates the wood grain and creates varying colors when viewed from different angles and in a different light.
