Silbonit Fiber Cement Panels and Clear Cedar Planks Custom Home Siding

Marasco Project

Synapse Construction provided custom siding on this beautiful home. Designed by Board & Vellum Architecture and Design, and perched on a bluff above Golden Gardens in North Beach Seattle, this house has stunning views of the Puget sound. With half of the house built on piles above a 200ft very steep slope the vertical access logistics were challenging to say the least. The siding consists of Silbonit fiber cement panels installed over rain-screen battens with open joints. The clear cedar planks were also installed over rain-screen battens with open joints. We prefinished all of the wood with Sikkens 1-2-3. For this home we ordered specified lengths in the clear cedar as the owner did not want any butt joints.


“I just wanted to express my gratitude for the excellent work Synapse did for my home. The finished product exceeded my expectations. The constant professionalism, attention to detail, overall thoroughness, and willingness to accommodate unusual issues, on the fly, was a sigh of relief. Many companies would have ignored what Synapse proudly and willfully faced head on, and accomplished. I look forward to working with them on the next project! ”
