Typical of Bramel's approach to innovation and anything but production methods, the siding at ground level is cedar that has been charred with a torch. Excess char will be wire brushed or power washed off which leaves a raised grain and hardened surface that will be extremely durable.
The shiplap boards are torched before being fastening on the wall, as doing it in place would be just asking for trouble - the objective is blacked, not flambé. The guys were joking about bringing hot dogs for lunch tomorrow though.
