FSC Certified Ipe Rainscreen Siding

Installation of the ipe siding is almost complete on the main residence. FSC certified ipe was certainly a challenge to source especially at a cost that was close to the amount budgeted. However, thanks to some diligent work by the construction team we were able to find a source though Parker Lumber that met our needs. Rather than choosing a siding material like cedar which would require a few coats of finish, the density and durability of ipe allowed us to skip the finishing and some of the components that are toxic to the environment. Much less maintenance in the future as well.
