Modern style weatherboard villa in Nelson
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.
