The environment has been taken into consideration when building this cottage, floors and ceilings feature native silver beech milled from sea washed logs from Doubtful Sound. Along with the silver beech, other timbers used have been sustainably logged or are from exotic plantations. Wool batts have been used for insulation. We encourage recycling.
