HLW - HOME LIVING: WEST, Tuesday, November 25, 2008 3 See the light Northern Skylights can install skylights in any type of roof » ADVERTISING FEATURE One of the best storage areas in the house is not used by most households. Now getting access to your attic is made easy with Northern Skylights. Managing director Craig Barry says that, while working in roof areas to install skylights, he has often been puzzled at how much space above the ceiling people let go to waste. ''This area is ideal for storage and it became apparent that the reason this area was not used was because it is difficult to access,'' he said. However, a foldaway loft ladder solves the problem. Fakro timber loft and attic ladders are constructed in three folding sections, providing easy and safe access to the roof space. When installed they fold neatly away into the ceiling. Northern Skylights can also install skylights in any type of roof, from tile to painted steel, and has a range of types available, including opening, fixed, vented and non-vented. Mr Barry has more than 10 years' experience installing skylights and attic ladders throughout Sydney. Details: Northern Skylights, 9456 7667. Put your best side on show Creating a feature wall in the garden is an effective way of adding interest and also making the most of small outdoor spaces. A cost-effective way of overhauling your garden's image; a feature wall can be made from a variety of materials such as timber, brick, stone, and decorative tiles. Western red cedar is an ideal choice of timber for a feature wall as it is available in a spectrum of colours. Ranging from mellow ambers and reddish cinnamons to deep sienna brown. Because it is virtually pitch and resin free, Western red cedar easily accepts a range of finishes, from fine oils and stains to solid coatings and paint. This allows a range of different looks which can be altered over time to suit changing trends. It is ideal for use in areas where termites are prevalent, as its natural preservatives resist these pests. Factors to consider when planning a feature wall in your garden include: Where should the feature wall be placed? Are you interested in creating a focal point or are you trying to take attention away from other elements in the garden? How big should the feature wall be? The size of the wall depends on the size and shape of your garden. If you are trying to make the most of a small area, a wall covering one whole side of a garden fence can actually make the illusion of a bigger space.
