Jarrah is a hard wood native to Western Australia and if bought new will have come from an old growth forest. Recycled Jarrah is therefore the only choice for the environmentally conscious builder. Jarrah is an incredibly durable wood (class 2) so capable of sustaining harsh weather for prolonged periods. I am just clarifying now what the bench top was sealed with. It is also termite resistant and OK to use in bush fire prone areas. All of these properties make it ideal for door and window frames in particular as in this house as well as outdoor furniture.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A connected layout helps the family members keep an eye on one another's routines. Clarke, in the bathroom here, says, "I can stand at the kitchen bench and watch Onni in the bath while chatting to Jai in the living room and others in the kitchen, and see outside all at the same time." That's Onni on the bench and Jai in the doorway.Sink: Oliveria; sink fixture: Methven; sofa: Jardan; tiles: Eco Tile Factory
