Precut Wood Siding

On the former site of a dilapidated \1950s-era farm on the island of Goeree-Overflakkee off the coast of Rotterdam, Korteknie Stuhlmacher Architecten &#8\2\20;constructed with cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels precut to size and assembled on-site within two weeks,&#8\2\2\1; writes Alexa.

The Western red cedar siding of the house is finished with a natural wash to “anticipate the patina and grayness,” the architects say. “The house will not need painting in the future.”
