Air shelter transformed into Western Red Cedar shed

Air shelter transformed into Western Red Cedar shed

Paul Hankinson, a DIY enthusiast wanted to turn the air raid shelter he had in his garden into a garden room, and chose Western Red Cedar for the cladding and roofing.

Paul wanted to use a solid colour stain on his cladding, so Silva Timber’s Western Red Cedar Finger-Jointed Tongue & Groove Cladding was chosen for its excellent value for money without compromising appearance.

Highly durable, attractive natural appearance, outstanding insulation properties and easy installation, Western Red Cedar No.1 (Blue Label) Certigrade™ Shingles offer a fantastic alternative to traditional roof tiles or wall cladding. The only renewable roofing resource with 50+ year life expectancy and R-Value insulation four times that of cement fibre.

Paul said: "I was pleasantly surprised about how easy Western Red Cedar was to work with using simple tools in my shed. It can be sawn easily, doesn’t splinter and warp like other timber.”
