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

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?

Again modern design with wood exterior in natural setting. Interesting water feature too. Wonder if there's some way to unobtrusively incorporate a thermosyphon into the design to naturally induce water flow...
