The Sleeve House utilises Accoya® in contemporary design
Delta Millworks manufactured the Accoya siding for a truly unique, all-season weekend home in New York. Using the Japanese finishing technique called “shou sugi ban” the Accoya wood, supplied to Delta by Universal Forest Products, was charred to give the house’s façade a modern, weathered texture.
By utilising this technique, the final look is a striking, deep colour finish. Delta has found the char developed on Accoya is more dense and durable than on other woods and with Accoya’s dimensional stability, this provides a foundation to achieve increased char service life.
