Elevated Camp – Moultonborough, NH
Down a winding road through a serene forest awaits this breathtaking private residence. Nestled away in the woods on 12+ acres close to Lake Winnipesaukee, this home features reSAWN’s CUSTOM Weathered Western Red Cedar exterior cladding. For a similar look, we suggest BROOKINGS Alaskan Yellow Cedar. Once an outdated, dilapidated cabin, this residence has received a complete remodel with modern designs and finishes. There is a living roof and an expansive rooftop deck and walkway to truly appreciate the nature and scenery that surrounds the home. The home’s design features countless large windows that provide expansive views of the lake and trees surrounding it. Some of reSAWN’s exterior cladding transitions into the interior, providing a seamless design. Murdough Design notes, “The exterior palette and glass are designed to visually camouflage and recess the building into the landscape.”
reSAWN offers Western Red Cedar because it’s one of North America’s great renewable resources. In addition to its prominence as sustainable exterior material, it’s very durable and is one of the lightest commercial softwoods. Western Red Cedar has very low shrinkage factors and is largely superior to all other coniferous softwoods in its resistance to warping, checking, and twisting. With the use of the classic building material, reSAWN has modernized and expanded the possible design options with charred shou sugi ban and weathered finishes.
