The project was a single-family new construction timber frame by Collin Beggs Design Build featuring Collin’s characteristic design style of following the grain on braces and using natural materials top to bottom.
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.
