Protecting your timber investment in the harshest Australian conditions.
They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder; when that eye belongs to a builder and landscape designer power-couple, incredible beauty can be seen and built into falling-apart homes. Hamish and Lucinda, homeowners and industry professionals, bought the home nine years ago when it was falling apart due to a termite infestation. Together with a strong team of builders and more, renovations were completed in 2020 – at the height of COVID-19. Now, the home boasts a new elevated extension with four bedrooms and kitchen and dining areas which open onto a concrete alfresco.
The couple used sustainable and recycled timbers, grey tile and black matt finishes to complete the modern yet timeless look. These natural and earthy elements were chosen to create kerb appeal that is both stunning and subtle enough to draw the eye but not invite it to linger. Inside the home, timber abounds as a key feature which creates warmth and balances the coldness of polished concrete and white walls.
CUTEK® Extreme CD50 combined with a CUTEK® Sela Brown Colourtone was chosen to coat the exterior Silvertop Ash cladding. Not only will the timber’s natural colour be maintained after the addition of the Colourtone, but it will be less susceptible to harsh UV rays and moisture movement thanks to the nature of CUTEK® Extreme CD50. After six years renovating this home, Hamish and Lucinda chose CUTEK® for long-lasting timber protection which would maintain the natural beauty of their home’s timber features.
