The 208 Shake & Shingle Mill was built by my family 35 years ago! My brother and myself, third generation shingleweavers, have been proud to manufacture high quality western red cedar roofing and siding products for thousands of homes and historical buildings!

We stand behind (or rather under) all of our products!). We have been gifted the tools and the knowledge to make any and all split or sawn, historically accurate, cedar roofing shakes or shingles!!

The most often ordered products are the two shown in the photos to the right. #1 16" shingles and #1 3/4" x 24" handsplit resawn shakes.

We offer competitive pricing packages so please feel free to call us at (800) 276-4122 for details.

Thanks again for visiting our site!
