Randall Mars Contemporary Exterior, DC Metro

mahogany siding vendor - Hi, love this project, great job. You mention you get the mahogany siding half the cost of cedar can you share your vendor. I'm from NJ and local vendors have cedar the cheapest.

we used to ask for Cambera mahogany from TW Perry (local). In a new house we have switched to an Ipe Rainscreen as it will last forever.

The vertical siding is tongue and groove mahogany - we find it about half the cost of cedar

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Hill added this to Corner Windows Bend Imagination
As in the previous example, the horizontal corner window in this vertical wood-clad volume makes one wonder, "What's going on behind the opening?" Let's take a look.
