Yakisugi exterior wall cladding on an estate guest house

Project Overview:
This residential guest house was designed and built by Able Construction of Norwalk, CT and features our yakisugi (shou sugi ban) Suyaki siding with traditional semi-transparent oil stain finish to contrast with the white main house.

Nakamoto Forestry is the largest manufacturer of yakisugi “shou sugi ban” in the world and distributes mill to jobsite within North American from inventory in Portland, Oregon. Our four mills in Hiroshima and Tokushima operate custom automated lines to produce high-grade and affordable siding. In Japan we have owned and managed timberlands for several decades, using the logs our harvest teams bring in to mill the most consistent yakisugi available anywhere. We would like the international community to appreciate that Japan has always had a large domestic forestry industry focused on quality, value, and sustainability.
