MATERIALS MATTER - Timber Cladding (or weatherboarding / siding) is used on homes around the world for its gorgeous textured look and its sustainability benefits. A little creativity goes a long way,and this adaptive and flexible material can be used in so many ways - boards, slats, shingles.... we especially love these examples! Remember that the weathering of timber varies between different species and across different climates, and can even vary between north and south facades on the same house. Consider whether you'd like to treat your timber with a stain or varnish for a consistent look, or allow it to naturally age (it usually goes grey). Finally, always try to get locally sourced, sustainably-grown and certified timber for your project!
