The first of the carbonized wood decking!

Here are the first four pieces that our neighbour David made for our roof deck.  David is planing down rough-hewn 1x6 and 2x4 lumber to create 3'x3' squares.  It looks awesome! The colour is a nice medium brown too- we'll see how it weathers, stains, and fades. We are working with Alberta Innovates Technology Futures to test the durability of the heat-treated wood and hopefully make the case for a market for this material in Alberta!

  1. Things are really coming together and it looks awesome through pictures - I'll have to come by soon enough to see it in person!
