Based in Salem, Ore., Barnwood Naturals sources the lumber for its Charred/Burnt wood siding from barns and buildings located within a 500-mile radius. After dismantling the structures by hand and documenting their history, the company uses an ancient Japanese technique of charring the wood—typically cedar—to make the siding resistant to fire and pests. • barnwoodnaturals.com
