Fresh Sawn Timber Cladding

Fresh Sawn Timber Cladding

Traditional, versatile, economical, effective, sustainable fresh sawn timber cladding.

A tree on the side of a hill gets felled one day, after getting cleaned up the log it produces travels a mile or so on the back of a trailer to the saw, it gets sawn the next day, it gets put back on the trailer the day after that and gets dropped about 3 miles down the road to our sawmill.

After all that work someone probably comes along 6 months later and plants another tree… either that or the one taken out was a thinning – meant to allow more space for the next generation of trees to grow up and out.

If you buy our fresh sawn Douglas Fir that’s what happens. Does a building material get more sustainable than that?

The story of fresh sawn cladding timber is centuries old. It’s about the simple life, it’s about using the materials at hand to create shelter from the elements, creating a home.

Fresh sawn cladding offers a short lead time, an easy and speedy fix and a long lasting finish that will mature with age.

If you want a traditional or economical timber cladding, the fresh sawn option is no brainer!
