process of shou-sugi-ban (charred wood) preserves wood. Can put linseed oil on to heighten effect and keep soot from coming off. Terrific texture!!!!!!!!!!!! And look. I'd have part of house done to contrast it with rest of siding.

High design and Far East tradition intersect with the dark, dramatic Japanese siding produced by a process called shou-sugi-ban. Translated as "the burning of Japanese cypress (sugi)," shou-sugi-ban is gaining popularity outside of Japan, as the process renders wood nearly maintenance free and makes it resistant to fire, rot and pests. Siding created by this method also has an expected life span of more than 80 years, thanks to a protective layer created by carbon released during burning.
