Brimstone ash modified external timber cladding

Brimstone is the first range of thermally modified British hardwoods. Being stable, durable, colour consistent and relatively knot free Brimstone ash is ideal for contemporary external timber cladding. Brimstone ash can be used externally and internally and can be orientated as vertical cladding or horizontal cladding. Brimstone ash is produced from ash trees grown in Great Britain supporting the management of our local woodlands. GIB third party certified.

Brimstone ash modified timber cladding at Lighthouse Mews

Modern Arc, a design and build company based in London, have collaborated with Vastern Timber on many projects. This project was possibly the most challenging, being in a tight spot in the centre of London. The client had decided upon a timber clad exterior but understood that many species can react badly to the pollution and shading common in the capital. Collectively the decision was made to use Brimstone ash because of it's natural durability, stability and it's tendency to weather well even in challenging conditions. Brimstone ash is thermally modified, British grown ash produced by Vastern Timber. The cladding on this project consisted of a 20mm board and a 33mm fin fitted alternately. Doors and joinery were also produced from Brimstone ash.

Case study - Canadian cedar timber cladding on Fir View

Self build in forest setting, designed and built by two architects, Liam and Mark. The two chose Canadian western red cedar cladding to wrap the entire building.

Powers House. A cedar clad country retreat with a modern twist

Mark Camillan and Liam Denny have a good track record of designing and building ambitious projects. Both for short term lets and as a part time residence Powers House follows hot on the heals of Fir View. Both of these builds are tied together by designs that are both modern but at the same time in keeping with the rural settings within which they are located. Both of these builds are also ties together by the fact that they are clad almost exclusively in Canadian cedar cladding supplied by Vastern Timber.

Self builder chooses Brimstone ash timber cladding for his Passivhaus certified build

Designer and builder Alex Clifford intended to renovate and extend the 1950's bungalow but it soon became clear that the project would require demolition and a full re-build. The site of the house offers stunning views of the surrounding countryside and is located near an area of natural woodland. As well as reaching the highest levels of energy efficiency, Alex was also keen to minimise the visual impact of the building. After testing a number of imported modified timber products for the exterior cladding, Alex settled on Brismtone ash, the thermally modified British ash product produced by Vastern Timber. His reasoning was that he liked the grain and the fact that it was made from locally grown material.

Siberian larch cladding used on award winning Miners Cottage

The conversion of two 18th Century miner's cottages into stunning contemporary dwellings has earned Bristol-based architects Design Storey both a RIBA award and the Daily Telegraph Homebuilding and Renovating award 2016. One of the keys to achieving this was the addition of a new extension which used Vastern Timber's Siberian larch cladding. The exterior was landscaped with untreated Siberian larch decking. The Siberian larch cladding and decking was produced to fit modules dictated by the client. The client treated the cladding with a dark stain to create an aged appearance.
