Residing on a 35-acre property surrounded by mature pine and aspen trees, ShineMaker is a private residence located in Wilson, WY. This Jackson Hole retreat has scenic views of the Teton Range and Sleeping Indian Mountain with access to a 1,300-acre trail system for many outdoor adventures. The home is composed of three buildings, and exterior features reSAWN TIMBER co.’s MONOGATARI 2.0 shou sugi ban charred Cypress cladding. The dark wood aesthetic accents the perfect tones of the natural environment. Due to the heavy snowfall in Wilson, Wyoming, Cypress was used for the exterior cladding.

MONOGATARI 2.0 by reSAWN TIMBER co. features CHARRED CYPRESS burnt in the Japanese style of shou sugi ban. MONOGATARI 2.0 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 in different lights. 

MONOGATARI 2.0 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 been a staple for wood cladding because it generates preservative oil, called Cypressene, which is ideal for locations with constant heat, humidity, and torrential rains.
