Yakisugi (Shou Sugi Ban) Pika-Pika wall cladding with white oil stain on a new construction project in Chapel Hill, NC.
This new build was designed by architect Jay Fulkerson and features both interior and exterior applications of our Pika-Pika siding with a traditional white oil stain prefinish. General Contractor was Kelly and Jeff Hopper of Hopper Construction of Hillsborough, NC, with support from McLendon Building.
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.
