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.
Mariana Pickering (Emu Architects) added this to Insulation Basics: Designing for Temperature Extremes in Any Season
On the other hand, if you’ve got a thick enough layer (more than 10 inches, or 25 centimeters) of almost any kind of insulation, it matters less what kind it is. Winter or summer, it will take a while for heat to move through it.A Passive House, for example, can be insulated with anything from polystyrene to sheep’s wool and it will still perform relatively well in winter and summer, simply because the standard requires an insulation layer so thick that the heat takes a long time to get through it, no matter what material it is made from. This would probably be similar in a LEED-certified home with a high energy and atmosphere rating, or a home specified to any similarly high level of energy performance.

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.
