HLF - Publication, Tuesday, February 3, 2009 5 HOMELIVING » ADVERTISING FEATURE Attractive alternative Timber continues to be a popular choice for outdoor design, offering an attractive alternative. Traditionally used for outdoor flooring, hardwood decking is suited to an array of elements such as screens, seating, gates and fences. Using the boards either horizontally or vertically, timber can achieve a striking aesthetic. Coated for a smooth finish, stained to complement a particular colour scheme or left untreated to simulate a natural, weathered aesthetic, hardwood decking suits a range of styles. A number of Boral Timber's species are naturally fire-resistant, making them ideal for outdoor constructions in bushfire prone areas. Boral Timber's hardwood decking offers high density, toughness and durability. Species included in the range are blackbutt, spotted gum, river reds, tallowwood and stringybark. Boral Timber has an Australian Forestry Standard (AFS) Chain of Custody certification for its hardwood products ensuring users that they are sourced from sustainably managed and legal sources.

Research has revealed three main reasons why families are seeking more space; 1. Children staying at home well into adulthood 2. Couples moving in with parents while saving for their future, and 3. Home owners wanting a better life style. Traditionally these scenarios resulted in a knock down-rebuild project or the traditional sell-purchase-relocate option, but now it seems that in today's day and age the trend is to extend. Extensions of today's era give home owners exciting flexibility in addressing the need for more space. This flexibility can been seen as one of the major driving forces which enables customised designs to be matched with available budgets. In many cases it has been found that older homes that are in need of improvement and more space have immediate equity that can fund a typical extension project. A well designed and constructed extension will solve the space issues, improve the quality of living and indeed have potential to add value to the property. Extending can mean; adding a room that opens up much needed space with materials that blend in with the existing house or, adding numerous rooms and additions to re-create the entire architectural style and feel of a home.
