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.

But that doesn’t mean it precludes innovation. In fact, fresh sawn timber allows for innovation on a budget. If  shrinkage, movement, limitations of machining wet timber, available species and sources are taken into consideration in cladding design and detailing there are 100’s of ways to use fresh sawn cladding. This project, for example, could work very nicely http://bit.ly/chestnutlatticecladding

If you need a traditional or an economical timber cladding offers a short lead time, an easy and speedy fix and a long lasting finish that will mature with age, the fresh sawn option is no brainer!
