Deck The Halls

Goodbye ugly balcony tiles (the last vestige of the old flooring) and Hello timber decking.

We’re mighty pleased with the colour of this wood. The initial plan was to use chengai wood, which is a more chocolaty brown. Stiletto wanted something lighter, and we were struggling to describe what we wanted to our contractor.

By chance, we visited a friend whose garden had a bunch of timber decking in the exact shade we wanted. The secret? Balau wood, instead of chengai. To sweeten things even more, balau costs less than chengai.
