This Renovated 90s Home Includes A New Exterior Made Of Alaskan Yellow Cedar Siding

The custom-milled siding of this modern house is Alaskan yellow cedar and was chosen specifically for how it will weather over time, graying out to create a rustic patina reminiscent of the Sea Ranch aesthetic.

Architecture firm Blue Truck Studio, together with interior design firm Mary Valaika Design, has sent us photos of a home they renovated in California, that showcases vertical wood siding.

The original 90s house had wild geometry, such as octagon-shaped rooms and triangular spaces, however, the client wanted a home of simple forms and rustic textures, like the ones in the Northern California community of Sea Ranch.

For the exterior, the studio reconfigured windows as well as the siding, which wraps around the house to simplify its form and provide privacy.

The home also has a driveway turned soccer pitch and a slatted outdoor shower for hosing off after a trip to the beach, both of which reflect the family’s love of recreation and the outdoors.
