The Hamptons’ architecture scene largely consists of varying examples of clear vertical grain western red cedar siding and cedar shake shingle siding. Timeless and regionally accepted, the two styles provide high-performance exterior systems that weather to a consistent gray. Veering away from expected aesthetics, the developers at Birchwood Park Homes specified reSAWN’s MURASAKI shou sugi ban exterior siding as a dynamic contrast to their contemporary take on a Northeastern Farmhouse.

Arriving at the home, a sand and gravel driveway cements the presence of a beach aesthetic that could have been lost on the greenery and spacious back yard. The sand’s color matches the primary cladding material. As a color and texture accent, MURASAKI shou sugi ban exterior siding can be found in both the front and side entrances of the residence with added, charred trim pieces. Large, exposed wood beams and a stone chimney reinforce the authentic farmhouse feel of the property.

reSAWN’s CHARRED offering features cypress, western red cedar, Accoya, Kebony, black walnut, red oak, white oak and reclaimed hemlock that is burnt in the Japanese tradition of shou sugi ban.  Our award-winning CHARRED products pay homage to the traditional Japanese technique of “shou-sugi-ban” aka “yakisugi” without being literal.  Historically very specific in their definition, “shousugi-ban” and “yakisugi” have become common nomenclature for modern charred wood designs in general.  All of reSAWN’s CHARRED products are made in the USA, in their facility in Telford, PA.

Our charring & sealing process makes for beautifully designed exterior wood siding.  Like any exterior wood siding prefinished or finished in place, these materials will weather naturally over time and will require maintenance.  For interior applications, expect little to no change.  We’ve created this CHARRED USAGE GUIDE to tell you more.
