Yakisugi | Fukai | Clear Oil
This private house in Longford was covered roof and all in our Yakisugi Fukai. The timber was burned, cooled and then heavily brushed to remove all the charr. Clear oil was applied just to stop the transfer of soot onto clothes, walls, grounds etc. The clear oil will alow the cladding to age to a nice silvery grey patina whilst accentuating the beautiful figuring of the timber.
Although something that is very rarely seen and as one of the very vew houses in the country to use Yakisugi cladding on the roof structure prooving that with the correct design and detail anything is possible.
Well done to the Architects and Builders involved.
Long service life and durability
Low carbon footprint
Little to low maintenance
