Jurassic Coast Wood House has been put forward for the Wood Awards and will be showcased at the Grand Designs Live London ExCel from the 4th to the 12th of May on Timber Focus / WoodMood Stand B370. The property TidalStone Jurassic Coast Wood House located on the Jurassic Coastline in Lyme Regis. The building has been acknowledged by leading Architects as warm, welcoming and aesthetically pleasing. The design brief for the exterior envelope was to ensure that the property would blend in the surroundings maintaining the history and beauty of the coastline from the date of construction giving a rustic, weathered look with a durable finish that would not require repainting or treating or high maintenance. SertiWOOD® Siberian Larch Heartwood Aged – Old Look was the chosen product for the decking and cladding application.
Sustainability benefits of wood also made the cladding and decking a clear favourite above most external materials moreover the timber was FSC Certified. The selection of the species was important due to the building’s proximity to the coastal area, slow grown Siberian Larch and heartwood only, significant time and effort was taken selecting the samples and wood suppliers. The cladding and louvre profile were very simple, face fixed and gave a defined vertical line configuration using square edge boards of various widths moreover on the decking profile was smooth and reeded board. The selection of the board sizes was important to minimise waste during construction and costs. The treatment applied for the Aged look was selected and used for both the cladding and decking – important to the client and the planners was the durability of the finish and ensuring a more uniform weathered silvery grey look eliminating concerns of defined variations in weathering e.g. no exposed or defined watermarks.
