Where Have All The Colors Gone?

We told you the color of the year was…drumroll…grey? How exciting! Grey! Everyone loves grey: 50 shades of grey, marble with grey veining, blah blah blah. Well, what if you want color? I'm talking about eye-popping, jazz me up, get me out of bed in the morning, make me love my job, color. Feed me more, rev me up, make me run an extra mile, color. Most building materials jumped on the Greyhound bus and haven’t gotten off yet, but we have colorful suggestions to offer: Durat Solid Surface, in 70 vibrant colors; Koskisen, a superior grade Finnish plywood with integral color faced wood grains; reSAWN Charred Timber, in orange, pink, green, red, and blue; Kirei EchoPanel, acoustical treatments – baffles, cloud shapes, stars, and sheets – available in brilliant colors. These brands have doubled down on color and gone against the grey'n.

Indoor and Outdoor Man Caves

Cellar dwellers can rejoice as the man cave comes to the backyard in the form of the outdoor kitchen. Big Green Eggs, Traegers, and Webers are flanked by some of the most durable surfaces imaginable. Fire pits and fireplaces are getting high-end upgrades with new textures and claddings that are far more attractive and interesting than traditional dull stone that had a foothold in outdoor kitchens for decades.

Come see our booth (#2862) at the International Woodworking Fair in Atlanta, GA, August 22-25 to see our installation of indoor and outdoor man caves using PaperStone, CharredStone, Lapitec, reSAWN Charred Timber, and GatorSkins. There will be a chance to win a Big Green Egg to get you started!

This Is Epic

No, really it is Epic! Epic wide oak flooring from reSAWN Timber is the ultimate in durability and beauty in the flooring space. It is w-i-d-e. How wide, you ask? 13.5” wide. Constructed in a stable, 3 ply format, the Epic white oak flooring using matching top and bottom layers to create a thick wear layer and stabilizing base layer sets a new standard in flooring.

What else?  For the base layer, it uses the white oak that would normally not be considered “face grade” due to knots or other irregularities, that would not be visually appealing. Still incredibly strong, there is no need to dispose of this useful oak, rather, it can be repurposed as part of the flooring. Looking for something that nobody else has, is visually stunning, has dramatic width and would be totally, well, Epic? You found it here → resawn@caragreen.com

Thinking Big by Building Small

We have always had big aspirations for our products, but in recent months we have learned to celebrate the little things. Working with several couples as they set off on adventures in buses or vans, we have provided them with healthy materials to keep them safe and cozy in their small space. UltraTouch insulation was a natural choice for Gary and Beth Hodges (follow their adventure @the198bus) as they didn’t want nasty, pink fiberglass in the walls of their upfit bus in which they plan to live and travel.

This got us thinking about tiny homes!  A lot of our products are suited to these small spaces, especially considering the limited space. You want to make the right (healthy) choices, right? Durat is lightweight and adds a pop of color to counters, tables, or benches. PaperStone is super durable, has an organic natural look, and it’s warm, matte finish won’t come off glossy in a small intimate space. Lapitec with its natural palette and 7 textures would be a great surface to chop directly on AND integrate an induction burner underneath to get limited surfaces to do double duty.

For less mobile tiny homes, reSAWN cladding (especially charred Shou Sugi Ban) would create a beautiful, resilient exterior that would really distinguish the home from its now-behemoth looking neighbors. We have big expectations for our future but we also realize that it is the little things that matter.


Don’t Buy Crappy Flooring. This Is The Best

Walking the aisles of Home Depot will not result in a high quality flooring. More likely you are looking at some design printed on top of a cheap fiberboard or a thin layer of hardwood atop a cheap wood core. If you want a high quality, well wearing hardwood that is sustainable and beautiful, reSAWN Timber has what you need. Wide plank walnuts, white oak, ash, cherry and red oak are available in a variety of trendy finishes and incredibly thick wear layers that ensure a long-lasting stunning flooring. Also used as wall cladding, reSAWN Timber's line of wood products is unmatched in the industry.
