Redwood availability - Hi there, I've been seeing a lot of great fences made from redwood on Houzz and I'm curious if you'd know if this lumber can be purchased in Canada? I have looked around with our local suppliers and nobody seems to think it's carried here. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Stepher79,
Unfortunately I am not aware of the availability of redwood in your area. One thing I would recommend is trying to find reclaimed lumber if there is a supplier near you. Sometimes connecting with local building contractors can be helpful. Reclaimed lumber will be more sustainable and can be of higher quality than new lumber, depending on the age and wear of the wood. Best of luck!

The wall was originally slump stone and the contractor filled in with a concrete stucco and then a colored stucco over the top.

Great question Liza! My clients purchased the chair after installation and I completely forgot to ask them! If I find out I will post it here!

Yeah, measurements would be really great. I love the way this turned out!

Thank you! The design called out for 1x6 and 1x2 sawn redwood. The contractor did a great job with installation.

The homeowner did find that the 1x2s did sag a bit following installation so they used narrow wood wedges between the fence slats to hold them up while they cured. I am guessing this is a problem caused by using uncured lumber.
