We recently received these pictures of our customer’s project out on Hat Island. They purchased the 2×6 Knotty Alaskan Yellow Cedar Decking from us last summer and recently completed the main floor deck. As there is no ferry service to Hat Island, the customer arranged transportation with a local barge company to get him, his truck and his decking over to the Island a little bit at a time.
Alaskan Yellow Cedar is an ideal choice for decking in the Pacific Northwest climate. Naturally resistant to rot and decay, it was used by West Coast Indian tribes for canoes and totem poles. In today’s market place, Alaskan Yellow Cedar is sought out for boat building, structural framing, siding, decking and roofing. Due to its ease of work ability, it is also used for intricate carvings and in making musical instruments.
We hope you enjoy these beautiful pictures of the Howell’s lovely new deck and the view from their little piece of heaven out on Hat Island.
This Alaskan Yellow Cedar was not treated and will be left to grey out, which is perfect for this beautiful Island setting. The integrity of the wood is not compromised in any way if left untreated.
In addition to Alaskan Yellow Cedar and Western Red Cedar decking, we also offer hardwoods decking, such as our Red Balau “Mahogany”, as well as man-made composites including Azek, Timbertech and Zometek.
