I love timber. The smell, look and feel are all dead sexy. Sadly, it’s super expensive (rightly so, the trees it comes from are super old and doing an awesome job being trees) and therefore not used a lot in new house production.
But I still want some. We are in a high bush fire zone so we are very mindful of materials used externally. Inside, however, is another story. I am very lucky to have a super talented father who is very handy with timber. He was a traditional boat builder in his hay day.
The ginormous kitchen island will get prettied post installation a little something like in the photos below from Pintrest (good ol Pintrest…)
Trev has certainly been called in to assist in the past. Like at 6am when I decided I didn’t actually know how to make an arch for a wedding expo!
