This is an Akula wood ceiling that is set up with a ship flap type pattern. Actually it more of a nickel gap pattern because we have space in between and the width is actually set up to mimic a boat. So you notice how it's got the nice deep reveals between every single board. It really looks great. They called out an accord for this ceiling and I'll be honest with you. I had never heard of Akoya wood before and I assumed that it was some sort of an exotic wood like neck. It'S not. This is actually radiator pine from New Zealand. That is then processed with basically a strong vinegar. It'S called a set elation process and it changes the chemical composition in the wood to make it much drier. So it's a stronger wood than just a raw pine. It'S also a harder wood and bugs and fungus, don't see it as food anymore. So it's sort of like the thermally processed woods that you've seen for decking and other purposes, but what I like about this better than the thermal process is.
It actually makes the wood stronger through the processing, as opposed to the thermally modified, where you basically cook it and you caramelize all the sugars, and you turn it into something that bugs don't think this food either. That process weakens the wood. So this is a much stronger, more durable product and thermally modified. It'S got a 50-year warranty out here on the water. It'S got a 25 year, warranty in the water, so it's a super bomber product.
So the first step that you want to do is you want to make sure that your ceiling above made out of these floor joists here is completely flat so that when we plaid it, our cladding will be completely flat. Now farmers aren't known for making perfectly flat structures, especially out on a boat dock in Lake Austin, so these things sort of walked up and down and they had a little bit of a bow to them. So we grabbed, we have LED strip lights on either side that is setting our elevation for this ceiling. It'S all in a single plane, LED light ceiling LED light. We pulled the string across every single floor, joists from the LED light over to the LED light, and then we added these pads here at the completely flat and in playing with that string, and so when we put our cladding or Akoya wood on top of this pad. It'S a completely flat ceiling that matches our LED strip lights.
Around the second step, we found Center between the two LED strip lights. We marked it and we started with our first row and we moved into the LED strip and we were left with. Maybe a half of a board on that side, then we flipped the way that we were running so we can run back this way, so our tongue is when we're going. This way is our top tongue was here and we ran it all the way there well running here. You'D have to come back in like this, and it doesn't work as well, so we spaced it out flipped our flipped, our runs over. So now we're running back. This way, so we ran from your perspective right to left, and then we flipped and now we're coming back this way. What that gives us is, we have the same amount on either side so that when you're looking at this, it looks very well thought out and planned. You have your center run and your two edges are exactly the same width
