impressive wind, nice looking spot!
With a name like "Shipwreck Point Cafe" I bet those flags get quite a thrashing from the wind - you have some beautiful woods in Canada Val
would have liked to see inside.cedar is not what we would call a hardwood, actually don't know why they use it, maybe it weathers better, but see how they are all small pieces of wood, thats called "shakes".
I love those cedar shakes when go that lovely silvery grey. I guess 5they must have to use some kind of preserver pretty regularly to keep them in condition.
I love it when they get silvery too.Here is an explanation from the web:Cedar is a low-density softwood, meaning that it has an open cell structure, unlike many siding materials. This makes it a light wood that is easy for construction, as well as making it a terrific insulator. Because of the density, less heat is transported through the wood, keeping heat from escaping in the winter and the cool air from escaping in the summer. Similarly, as it reduces heat flow, it creates a natural acoustic barrier. Cedar is also a sustainable, durable wood, whether painted, treated or left untreated. But the main reason people choose cedar siding, or cedar shake, is not really its durable properties, but the style.Read more: http://www.servicemagic.com/article.show.Benefits-of-Cedar-Siding.13951.html#ixzz14tF9mwlC
Very intersting. Funny enough on our way back from winterising the boat this avo I noticed a few places with those shakes. Bet they cost a lot more over here.
