Natural clear ship lapped cedar treated with Cabot’s bleaching oil to help even the natural weathering of the material…very little to no maintenance provided the building is sited, detailed, and breaths properly…

What semi transparent colour of Cabot oil did you use? Beautiful finish. Thank you.

Thank you so much. Does this require frequent oil treatments to maintain the beauty?

This is pressure treated pine ( 8 x 8 x ? )
allow it to weather naturally and it may turn a beautiful silvery patina.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Hill added this to Inspired Designs for Sloped Lots
This image illustrates how the character of steps and retaining walls can be detailed similarly to the house, creating a cohesive environment. The horizontal wood siding of the house is repeated in the yard's wall and steps; the latter even appears to be extruded from part of the retaining wall.
Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Living Luxuriously With Nature
One of the cedar sections of the house can be seen when viewing the master bedroom from the outside. Designed as boxes that connect to the main zinc- rainscreen-covered space, the entry, guest bedroom/office, and master bedroom are contained in these warm, wooden spaces.
Erin Lang Norris added this to Dreaming of a Bedroom Walkout
It appears that this modern home is surrounded by lush green foliage. I can only imagine how cool it would be to wake up and walk outside on a crisp autumn morning. Robe and slippers, it's time to get up!
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Dream Homes for Empty Nesters
4. Connected to the landscape. It seems that most of us hope to live in locations with warm weather when we retire. So these homes should be connected as much as possible to the landscape beyond its walls.
Make it grand. There is an obvious difference between the level of this home and the level of the garden. Rather than having a tiny porch with a few spindly steps just outside the master bedroom's beautiful sliding doors, the design connects home and garden with a bold solution.Here the garden is essentially elevated to meet the doorway. What could have been a tiny porch has been enlarged into a spacious bluestone patio retained by steps and a low wall.I really admire how the horizontal cladding on the step risers and retaining wall echoes the home's exterior finish. The addition of a planting margin around the patio's perimeter — and the presence of large trees — underscores the significance of the new space.The rest of the property can be observed from the elevated patio or enjoyed up close. All one has to do is descend the graceful steps into the lower garden.
Echo your home's shape in outdoor areas. A wraparound patio that mirrors the shape of the home, especially when paired with sliding glass doors and plentiful windows, makes the indoor and outdoor spaces feel more interconnected.Tell us: How important is the indoor-outdoor connection to you? Would you try any of these ideas?

Backyard - Concept #1 A concrete patio extends out from the back stairs leading to the deck and extends around the west side of the house. A 3' wide planter made of concrete is brought up to the level of the patio., allowing plants to be fully visible from the patio and downstairs bedroom. The west edge of the patio / planter will be approximately 2 feet tall to accommodate the sloping backyard. The south face of the planter will gradually decrease in height as the level of the ground meets the edge of the patio.
