The word ‘relax’ comes to mind with this superb outdoor living area, largely built from Niagara building products.
Historical homes with a contemporary feel
Decks are a staple of the New Zealand home, especially when summer rolls around. Finding the right decking timber, however, can be quite difficult
Choosing a weatherboard fence to complement a weatherboard house is a popular option. Not only does it continue the shadow line pattern of the house cladding but it allows the colour of the home to feature on the section’s exterior. Running the fence in line with the house—like this new home located in Lincoln, Canterbury, is a clever way to continue the house profile horizontally, often adding grandeur to a restricted section space. Timber weatherboards are classed as a lightweight cladding option. At almost three times lighter than man-made weatherboard alternatives Envira puts less strain on posts and hinges, while remaining strong, flexible and ready to handle fence knocks associated with everyday family living. For easy installation build your fence using Envira scribers to create a gap-free finish for easy painting, added privacy and structural strength. Another benefit of a weatherboard fence is they look great from both sides—no need to face your neighbours with the ‘bad side of the fence’. Fences facing the street will look great both from inside and out. As an alternative to the horizontal lines of the bevel back (pictured) or rusticated weatherboards, the Envira range offers a shiplap profile weatherboard that looks great installed vertically. A stylish option for fences and other landscaping features including deck edging, entertainment/seating areas, planting boxes and even children’s play areas.
Envira’s rusticated weatherboard profile is featured here with this new home in Richmond, Nelson. Teamed with a high pitched iron roof, overhanging porch areas, villa-style posts and eave decals, an overall colonial design is prevalent but the finish is far from an old-style building. Homely? Yes, but far from old-fashioned. The clever addition of simple, modern joinery, decking, lighting accents along with great colour choice and landscaping, makes this house a perfect example of how to modernise a colonial design. Adding to the homely feel of this house is the use of 100% timber components from the Envira Weatherboard System, including window sills, facing boards, rusticated scribers and box corners to give the overall soft aesthetic only real timber can provide. Choosing Envira’s finger jointed weatherboards gives a supreme finish. Imperfections are removed and then finger jointed together to create a stronger, longer six-metre board, which means less joining for builders when installing large walls. All weatherboards and components are factory primed, to save painting time and costs.Collection images by David Chadwick Photography.
Nothing beats the look of rusticated weatherboards – especially if you want to build a home in the country
