STRAIGHT TALKING- MATERIALS AND SUPPLIERS
We’re details-focussed when it comes to finding the most beautiful, healthy materials sources as locally as possible. Read on to find out more about our materials, standard inclusions and suppliers.
TALKING STRAIGHT - EXTERNAL TIMBER
Timber first, timber last!
+We put in hours of research to determine the best timber for the job and we source local, ethically-sourced timber wherever possible
+Our beautiful Silver Top Ash is plantation sourced from Gippsland
+Bushfire-safety: complies with BAL 29
TALKING STRAIGHT- INTERNAL LININGS
HERE WE GO AGAIN - TIMBER
+We use timber products where possible for all internal linings
+Our wall linings are EcoPly ply groove made from plantation pine and FSC certified.
+Low Formaldehyde Emissions (E0)
+We use plasterboard for ceilings and wet areas only. We're not huge fans of it, but in the interests of making our houses more affordable we use it in limited areas unless customers want to upgrade to ply linings throughout.
+Our floors are FSC certified mixed species hardwood commonly known as 'tas oak'. But it's not!
+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 standard kitchen is made from Australian manufactured Queensland sourced Hoop Pine Ply
+Internals are Super E0 white board for durability
+Benchtops are NEAThouse eco countertops: plywood sheets bonded with a non-toxic glue with a thin strip of laminate on top for durability. They look fantastic and most of our clients choose this option over any other benchtop.
+We use the same materials for the cabinetry in the bathroom/s and laundry
FITTINGS AND FIXTURES
+Tapware is Australian made. Actually Brisbane made!
+6 star WELS rated and good looking too!.
+Our hardware - door handles, stoppers etc is industrial grade Australian made recyclable brass.
+Lighting is LED throughout with feature pendant lighting by a local designer.
+We use beautiful aluminium framed double glazed windows assembled here in Tassie.
PEOPLE WE WORK WITH
+NEAThouse subcontractors, tradies and suppliers are the best. Just sayin'.
+They are reliable and honest. They supply us with quality materials and do quality work.
+They know our philosophy and run their own small business.
+We have a small group of tradesmen, subcontractors and suppliers that we happily use over and over again.
HEMP CURTAINS....SAY WHAT!
+Hemp curtains are standard replacements for robe doors
+They are great for air-flow and add soft texture to the room
+We love that they’re fully recyclable, sustainable and incredibly simple and beautiful
+You can have robe doors if you want. We won't be offended.
