Ithaca Modern update!
Oh yes, we're still working on the Ithaca Modern house in Point Roberts! Much of the work is tying up loose ends: adding trim work, casings, finishing off siding outside. This week we knocked off most of our list with the window and door casings, made from simple pine cut down into low-profiles. The casing work will eventually be whitewashed to bring it all together yet still leave some visible grain in keeping with the cottage's rustic-modern approach.
Today Jamie sprayed on an iron-oxide recipe made by Eco Wood Treatment from British Columbia. We bought ours from Sunbury Cedar in Vancouver, BC. The non-toxic water based treatment is applied and immediately patinas the western red cedar, which will continue to silver throughout the upcoming wet season. It already brings together the siding!
