Love the house AND the cat! ;) Is that real wood siding or a composite for exterior? And where is a good starting place to shop for siding like this?

Yes, the exotic hardwoods can be milled and used as T&G. I don't know if they can take that particular stain. I would ask the manufacturer of the stain or get a sample of each and do a test.

Thanks for the response! Do these exotic hardwoods turn grey in the sun, like teak furniture? It's hard to maintain that nice brown color unless you oil it regularly. What about Ipe or Mangaris?
