Shou Sugi Ban is the ancient Japanese exterior siding technique that preserves wood by charging it with fire.

Risinger's Tips put your finished floors down first, complete your sheetrock on the ceiling, make sure the door you're using is a solid-core door so there's enough meat to nail and glue onto and ensure you're using high-quality hardware like the Sugastune hinges used here.
