Budget-friendly and naturally beautiful, bevel siding is the most widely-used Western Red Cedar siding profiles. It is produced by re-sawing lumber at an angle to produce two pieces thicker on one edge than the other.
At Cedar Country, we only supply knotty beveled siding that has sound and tight knots, such as the siding used on the newly remodeled Railroad Pub and Pizza. Prior to installation, we had the knotty bevel siding for the Railroad Pub and Pizza factory flood coated with high-quality penetrating oil. This not only saves money and time on the job site, but it also helps to protect your siding before and during installation.

Whether it is new construction or updating the look of a commercial or residential building, using natural wood siding to add a more modern look and feel is gaining popularity. With so many options in Western Red Cedar, Alaskan Yellow Cedar, and other domestic hard and softwoods, the possibilities are endless to create a more natural, welcoming appearance for any building with wood cladding.
A true example of crafted modernism, this rustic home located in eastern Washington is cladded with a mix of our knotty Western Red Cedar and metal, along with concrete and steel elements to create an appealing façade that blends in with the natural surroundings, as well as help to protect the home against wildfires.

When paired with a medium or dark color, natural wood siding instantly modernizes an existing building. In these photos, our friends at La Conner Dental replaced portions of the existing siding on their commercial building with our 1×4” clear Western Red Cedar tongue and groove paneling to create an upscale, yet charming exterior.
Totally on-trend, and only getting hotter, is creating entrances to both homes and businesses that are inviting with depth and dimension. Used to accentuate the front porch and entry, our clear, vertical grain engineered veneer Western Red Cedar T&G extends a warm welcome to the homeowners and guests alike.

Thuja plicata, commonly called western red cedar or Pacific red cedar, giant arborvitae or western arborvitae, giant cedar, or shinglewood, is a species of Thuja, an evergreen coniferous tree in the cypress family native to western North America. It is not a true cedar of the genus Cedrus.
Western Red Cedar trees produce their own thujaplicin, a chemical substance that is known to have anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. It’s also said to be an anti-oxidant. Long before it was used in modern construction, Western Red Cedar played a large role in the lives of Native Americans. So much that they called it “the Tree of Life”.
Native to the Pacific Northwest, where Cedar Country Lumber is located, we are proud suppliers of Western Red Cedar building materials for new construction, as well as historical restorations. Over the years, we have had the pleasure of working with the North Cascades National Park staff on many of their projects, including some at Stehekin.
Accessible only by foot, boat, or plane, Stehekin is located on the Northern shores of Lake Chelan in Eastern Washington and offers many outdoor activities, including hiking, biking, fishing, camping, and kayaking. For visitors wishing to spend the night with amenities, there are cabins, a house, and rooms for rent, as well as a restaurant and general store.
Special “thanks” to our friends, the Roberts, for capturing these photos on their recent trip to Stehekin!
