Designing a house to fit in with the landscape often means searching out materials that will express the local flavour.

For Jamie Keehan, the owner of the house featured on these pages, that task was easily accomplished. As the local area distributor of Stutex Stone products in Taupo, incorporating the company's schist products was a natural and affordable choice.

Keehan specified Cerastone schist in dark grey to clad the base of the house and columns. It also features around the barbecue. The schist, which is reminiscent of the local volcanic stone in the region, creates a sense of permanence and helps to anchor the house visually. The colour also complements the roofing and the natural timber decking.

Stutex Stone specialises in the distribution of manufactured stone products such as Cerastone. The company says these products are a cost-effective way to achieve the look of stone. As they weigh considerably less than natural stone, Stutex Stone products can be installed quickly and easily over a pre-sealed exterior or interior substrate. The stone can even be used on second storeys or chimneys where weight may be an issue.
