Pretty much from day one we’ve wanted to clad our house in cedar. We love it and think it’s perfect for the home we’re building and the setting it’s in. Yummo!
We hunted around a lot to find the style of cedar that we wanted and came across Rosenfeld Kidson. Mark Liggins and the team there are awesome and have been so good to work with, putting up with our continual requests for more info, samples and colours. Until we settled upon our dream combination. A mixture of horizontal and vertical shiplap boards. Using a profile that has a centre groove to provide the appearance of a narrower profile, which we wanted, but with the benefit of being faster to install and requiring less material.
In case you want to know the specifics, we’re going with:
Horizontal boards – RKA766 ex200x22mm (161×18.5mm finish)
Vertical boards – RK59 ex200x22mm (165×18.5mm finish)
In the new driftwood colour by Dryden WoodOil, with a dressed face (super smooth vs band-sawn finish) and vertical grain.
