Hi-
The wood is western red cedar -- the grey strip at the base is the exposed concrete foundation.
Thanks for the question --

Siding - What type of wood did you use for the siding? I'm looking for a strong material that will hold up in Florida rains and hot sun.

Hi Cathy,
Thank you! We definitely want the real wood look and this application will work great for florida.

This is truly beautiful work. I'm currently researching finishes for clear cedar siding and wondering if you can tell me what product was specifically used and how it's holding up at this point?
