Aye Aye Captain - Boatshed accommodation
A boatshed and lighthouse hardly sound like the setting of a new homestay venture, but the combination of these landmarks with a prime island location is now home to some fine accommodation in Little Oneroa, Waiheke Island.
With extensive use of weatherboard substrates, one could be mistaken for thinking the structures hail back decades. While the weatherboard aesthetic appeal may match those remembered from childhood years, the technology behind the weatherboards is futuristic.
Weatherboards are making a comeback as a premium substrate choice for homeowners. James Hardie have embraced this trend back to the traditional look and feel, developing a new weatherboard giving all the aesthetic appeal of timber weatherboards with the added benefits of the strength and durability of ceramic technology. Designed primarily for use on residential 1-2 storey buildings, the new Linea weatherboards were used extensively on both the exterior and interior of the Boatshed project.
The Linea weatherboard substrate was treated to a standard decorative paint system of Resene Lumbersider satin acrylic complemented by window trim and fascias in Resene Enamacryl gloss waterbased enamel and Resene Sonyx 101 semi-gloss acrylic. The clever manipulation of a palette of special Resene designed colours, Resene Alabaster (nearly white), beige and varying gloss levels has enabled perceived age differences to be created between the 'boatshed', 'lighthouse' and main building.
Interior Gib. Board and James Hardie tongue and groove linings have been painted throughout the interior envelope with Resene Zylone SpaceCote, with the exception of bathrooms, which have been treated to a higher sheen finish in the form of Resene Lustacryl semi-gloss waterbased enamel. Natural timber flooring and stair treads were blonded using an Resene Enamel Undercoat wash then topcoated in Resene Aquaclear for an Environmental Choice approved protective finish.
With this anchor of innovative design to steady the way, the guest logbook is guaranteed to be full of entries.
