Located in Lincoln, MA, the Fairhaven Bay House sits on a beautiful 5-acre waterfront property with panoramic views of the Sudbury River. Built in 1994, this private residence received a complete redesign. The exterior features 3,800 sq. ft. of PONZU Shou Sugi Ban Charred Cypress cladding. The warm brown tones beautifully highlight the home’s two-story circular sky lit foyer, large pane glass windows, and green foliage surrounding the property.

PONZU by reSAWN TIMBER co. features charred Cypress burnt in the Japanese style of Shou Sugi Ban. PONZU is carefully charred, misted with water, cooled, brushed, and then finished. The burning process accentuates the wood grain and creates varying colors when viewed from different angles and different light. For exterior applications, the wood is finished on the face only and sealed on the back & the two long edges. 

PONZU is made with Cypress sourced from the Southern United States and can be used for interior wall cladding, ceiling cladding, and exterior siding. With its legendary beauty and natural durability, Cypress has long been a staple as an exterior wood siding product. Because Cypress generates its own preservative oils, called cypressene, it’s an ideal wood for locations with constant heat, humidity, and torrential rains.
