Located in Ulster County, New York, the Woodstock Weekender is a city dweller’s dream getaway. This residence expanded and modernized their original home with over 1,300 square feet of reSAWN TIMBER co.’s HOWAITO Shou Sugi Ban Charred Cypress, used on the interior wall and ceiling. Drawing inspiration from the natural beauty of the Catskills, the light wood tones create an atmosphere that is dazzling, yet comfortable by accentuating the room’s unique furniture.
Interior design firm, WhiteWebb incorporated “Passive House design and biophilia as guiding principles to artfully balance the colors and texture of the landscape by citing influences from the neighbor’s dahlia garden or the sky on a starry night.”
HOWAITO by reSAWN TIMBER co. features charred Cypress burnt in the Japanese style of shou sugi ban. HOWAITO is made with Cypress sourced from the Southern United States. With its legendary beauty and natural durability, Cypress has long been a staple for interior and exterior wood siding projects.
