The colour, interesting grain pattern and price of Silva Timber‘s Mandioqueira assured it was chosen ahead of other hardwoods for a garden renovation at a 1950s dormer bungalow.
The decking area fitted has been used to work with large sliding glass doors, creating a seamless transition from house to garden.
To maximise the functionality of the deck, a sunken seating area was created with Mandioqueira.
Wide steps lead out into the garden, whilst a hot tub has also been built into the end of the deck.
Homeowners Chris and Lily Lamb, who took part in the Channel 4 show Inside Out Homes, had originally planned for their 1950s dormer bungalow to extend out into the garden but were eventually persuaded to come around to the idea that the garden could become akin to another room with the right design.
Wanting to retain the natural colour they fell in love with, Chris and Lily applied a clear UV finish to the deck in order to protect against fading and water damage.
