Tough timber - Esk Valley home

Stanley Point home Nestled high in the Esk Valley hills, this Eskdale house commands breathtaking views over the surrounding Hawkes’ Bay ranges. This home, designed and built by Design Builders Hawkes Bay, features Elements Vulcan+ Cladding - a locally made, thermally modified pine cladding supplied by Abodo Wood.

The client wished to use dark-stained timber cladding to contrast with the light coloured plaster finish. The thermal modification process increases the stability and durability of the timber, and makes it suited to the stresses created by darker colours. Superior weathering and additional stability is achieved by engineering the boards with a patented process to achieve vertical grain orientation. The Vulcan+ cladding is finished in Resene Woodsman CoolColour Tiri, chosen to reduce the heat incurred by the wood on sunny Hawkes’ Bay afternoons.
