Floors - What type of timber has been used for the floors?

Thanks for your question. The timber flooring is recycled Grey Ironbark, a very dense timber native to Australia. The timber was sourced from an old bridge in Queensland that was disassembled then re-milled into floorboards.

Hi, there's no hearth in this photo. The dark grey panel is actually a hydronic heating radiator (you can see another one in the rear of the photo on the second wall). The yellowish walls are stabilised rammed earth: a bit like concrete but more rustic. They involve the compaction of successive layers of dirt into a formwork. It's a very beautiful material, perfect for rural projects.

Hi Ermis, the floor is made from recycled Grey Ironbark timber, a tree native to Australia. The boards are 90 x 20mm.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The architects treated the external portion of the rammed-earth wall with a clear sealant for waterproofing. Inside, the architects left it untreated to maintain texture and color.

wall is made from stabilised rammed earth, basically dirt with a bit of cement and water mixed in. The dirt was sourced mostly from local quarries
