Nestled in the countryside in Sonoma, California, the Cory Lane Residence sits on a beautiful 5-acre property with stunning views of the mountain range and lush greenery. Built in the 1970s, this private residence features over 2,700 square feet of WILLIWAW exterior cladding. WILLIWAW weathered Alaskan Yellow Cedar has a light tan/gray, weathered look, which naturally complements the home’s aesthetic and surrounding landscape.

WILLIWAW by reSAWN TIMBER co. is an Alaskan Yellow Cedar intended to provide a high-performing, natural material with a weathered aesthetic. WILLIWAW is available in  clear vertical grain containing few character marks and can be used for interior or exterior wall cladding. Sourced along the Pacific coast from Alaska to Oregon, Alaskan Yellow Cedar is known as the hardest cedar in the world. Its slow growth rate makes it highly resistant to insects, disease and decay.
