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.”
