Low-Tech Rainscreen with Charred Wood

Zero Cottage — a net-zero energy project pursuing Living Building Challenge, LEED Platinum, Green Point Rated, and Passive House certifications — is finishing nicely. Part of the exterior has a handsome rainscreen of vertical cedar battens and salvaged maple flooring.  The maple strips were charred with a roofing torch shou sugi ban, or yakisugi-,style for longevity and aesthetics.  The result is a clean and modern look.

The exterior wall section includes charred maple cladding, 1×4 cedar battens, Green Guard RainDrop house wrap, a 2″ layer of XPS foam, Grace Perm-A-Barrier, and then plywood, according to construction updates on a Tumblr for the Zero Cottage.
