In denmark we mostly use oak for exterior cladding and roof. I suppose this is Red Cedar right?

The shingles are Eastern White Cedar, and are hand-dipped in Australian Timber Oil by Cabot, attached is a photo of the lengthy process of hand-dipping the shingles. I would expect that these shingles would last a long time in both of our climates.

The owner of the tree house does not want the price disclosed. However, it is fair to say quite a bit of work went into it and I would not call it inexpensive.

Thank you, ddkbanks20, this is a sort of a tree house for kids during the day and sleeping house for adults at night. Both playful and serious at the same time...we hope.
