SAFE HAVEN

WHEN AN EX­PERT REN­O­VA­TOR CRE­ATED HER FAM­ILY’S FOR­EVER HOME, SHE EN­SURED IT WAS BUILT TO LAST - AND TO LOVE

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Advertising Feature -

Fa­mous for their stylish ren­o­va­tions, Three Birds Ren­o­va­tions have cre­ated nu­mer­ous dream homes. So when one of their own, Bon­nie Hind­marsh, de­cided to cre­ate her fam­ily’s for­ever home, it was per­sonal. Bon­nie had been col­lect­ing ideas for her fam­ily home’s look and feel for years. Her ‘mod­ern coastal barn’ white weath­er­board home with wrap­around ve­ran­dahs would eas­ily work on their five-acre block, but the lo­ca­tion had its chal­lenges. “Our big­gest was that our site is in a BAL 40 rated bush fire zone,” says Bon­nie. “We needed to use ma­te­ri­als that are com­pli­ant.” Which is where the de­ci­sion to use Scyon™ Linea™ weath­er­board and Hardiedeck™ came in. “We knew it looked great, but it’s also BAL 40 rated and ter­mite re­sis­tant, so it was a no-brainer,” says Bon­nie.

MADE FOR LIV­ING

Hardiedeck™ deck­ing is made from James Hardie’s premium fi­bre ce­ment. It cre­ates a clean look to con­nect a stylish in­te­rior en­vi­ron­ment with the outdoors, with­out risk­ing dam­age from the el­e­ments. Smooth, wide, gap-free boards and free­dom of colour choice make this ce­ment deck­ing a stun­ning out­door floor, which was an­other plus for Bon­nie, who’s a keen en­ter­tainer and a mum to four grow­ing boys. “I love that it won’t splin­ter,” she says, “so there’s no worry about lit­tle bare feet run­ning around. But the best thing is that we’ve al­ways loved en­ter­tain­ing, and this new alfresco area has taken things to the next level!”
