Cedar and Fir for a Cabin in the Woods

One of the greatest joys of helping people with specialty building materials, is working with our customers and guiding them to products that help them build their dream home.  Located on scenic Guemes Island in the San Juan Islands of Washington state, this Pacific Northwest style custom home is nearing completion.

Clad with our hand split Western Red Cedar shakes, this “cabin in the woods” shows excellent craftsmanship with thoughtful and creative touches, inside, as well as out.  Used for many years in the Pacific Northwest, our Western Red Cedar shakes will provide many years of carefree service for this home’s exterior.

The interior is clad with Douglas Fir tongue and groove, which adds to the feeling of being right at home in the trees on this secluded island, which is only accessible by boat or ferry.

Renovated Farmhouse in the San Juan Islands

Super excited to receive these photos and message from our long time customer, Craig Youngquist, of Craig Youngquist Construction.   His attention to detail and superior craftsmanship are so evident in every project he takes on.  Please enjoy these photos!

“Hi Tom

Below are some photos of the project that you supplied siding, exterior trim, interior trim and cedar for door replications. Some of the photos are not stellar, but give you an idea of the scope of the job. The wainscot panels were actually recycled from the shiplap sheathing on the interior walls of the original structure. But all the rest of the fir was from you. I ended up buying a moulding machine to replicate the casings and various trim details. We saved a bunch of the original millwork , but didn’t have enough to finish the main floor.

The photo with 2 doors shows the original with the transom above and the replication to the right. The stair skirt, newell, balusters, and railing are the original, but the frame and panel down the stairs and under are newly added. The new roof on the house is slate – which wasn’t original.

I appreciate your generosity and excellent supply sourcing.”
