Extend your LIVING SPACE
Sydney’s Three Birds Renovations transform a tiny river shack into an entertainer’s summer paradise with HardieDeck™.
Next generation style
Overlooking a beautiful river and surrounded by bushland is the River Shack, the seventh house to be transformed by Sydney’s Three Birds Renovations. Choosing timber-look HardieDeck™ for its versatility and durability, Three Birds Renovations created an envy-inducing outdoor area that’s perfect for entertaining. “What’s really great about HardieDeck™ is it’s designed to be painted,” says Lana Taylor of Three Birds Renovations. “We stained it to look exactly like timber, using two-parts Merbau, one-part Charcoal to get the chocolatebrown colour we were after.”
Timber vs the timber look
HardieDeck™ is bushfire approved and deemed non-combustible by the National Construction Code of Australia, perfect for the River Shack’s bushland location. “I think anyone who’s about to build a deck should consider a HardieDeck™ instead of traditional timber,” says Lana. “It’s rot, moisture, fire and termiteresistant*, and that’s important in certain houses. HardieDeck™ is also easy to install; it definitely saves you time.”
