Nestled away in the farm country of southwest Ontario, this unique build collides two homes into one building. The design stretches out each residence while still providing ample views of Eugenia Lake. The home is unified with the building materials, including our BRIGGS Shou Sugi Ban Charred Western Red Cedar and a continuous band of metal siding. Eugenia Lake is considered the “Hidden gem of Grey County,” and this home has a stunning view of it. Grey Highlands is a unique municipality recently formed in 2001 by the amalgamation, including multiple townships and villages.
BRIGGS by reSAWN TIMBER co. features Charred Western Red Cedar burnt in the Japanese style of shou sugi ban and can be used for interior or exterior wall cladding and is standardly select tight knot grade. BRIGGS is carefully charred, misted with water, cooled, brushed, and then stained/sealed. The top coat sealer is applied prior to shipping (for exterior applications, we recommend sealing the back side as well as the face). The burning process accentuates the wood grain and creates varying colors when viewed from different angles and in different light.
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. It is an expansive and popular tree in the Pacific Northwest region of North America.
