What kind of oil did you dip the shakes in? I think it's the nicest house I've ever seen!

Thank you! The cedar shingles were dipped in Cabot Australian Timber Oil, natural.

how long is the oil good for, when would you have to re-stain?

Re-staining depends on use and exposure. Because of the trees, it is not very exposed. The can says 1 to 2 years restaining if furniture. It's going on 5 years now and the stain is holding just fine.
