+Our floors are FSC certified mixed species hardwood to give a beautiful and durable finish.
+Our paints? LOW VOC of course!
OUR KITCHENS -THE HEART OF THE HOUSE? LET'S TRY LUNGS!
+Surprisingly for an area that we spend much time in; in particular preparing food, the kitchen in modern homes is often the most toxic in air quality not to mention in the manufacturing process.
+Our kitchens - your choice! We can build them from Australian manufactured Hoop Pine Ply (we love this!) or any other materials desired. Speak to us about the options!
+Internals are Super E0 white board for durability.
