The last straw - Karaka Bay Road strawbale home

Karaka Bay Road Strawbale HomeA new strawbale, plaster cement finished home in Karaka Bay Road, Wellington has been wrapped in a paint system of Resene AquaShield in a custom designed colour.

The application of new Resene AquaShield, a mineral effect specialist finish, retains the permeable nature of the walls allowing the straw to breathe while imparting watershedding properties and a dead flat finish. Exterior timber features have been coated in Resene Waterborne Woodsman exterior stain for a natural tinted timber grain complement.

In true back to nature style, all power is windmill generated with solar powered water and sewage completing the raft of renewable resource use in this home.

Painting Contractor: Concept Property Services
