Black siding and heat? - I'm very interesting in incorporating Shou Sugi Ban on my new house, does anyone know if it gets hot with direct sunlight? Yes I know black absorbes heat, but does the charring do the same?

Interesting sun screen....Are these louvered blinds on the windows or a fixed sun screen? - The blinds appear not to be an integral part of the windows but applied to the siding almost as a separate sun screen. Are they remote controlled? Brand? Thank you.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Carbonized (that is, charred) siding is a powerful statement and, as such, is well suited to simple forms and details that allow the dramatic finish to take center stage. The charred siding of the Prescott Passive House above underscores the handsome restraint of the form.The home is a product of an innovative not-for-profit design/build program, Studio 804, for graduate students at the University of Kansas School of Architecture. The students design and construct one project each year, with an emphasis on sustainable, affordable and inventive building solutions.

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.
