Recycled Matai – Thorndon Home

Home/Recycled Matai – Thorndon Home

Timber: Recycled uplifted Matai T&G at 135mm x 20mm, recovered from the Taumarunui Hospital.

Details: Our clients, Danny & Gerard, had owned and operated The Wellington Motel in Hobson St for some years. They undertook a significant renovation over 18 months to restore the house to its original condition. They re-opened the restored house as The Wellington Boutique Bed and Breakfast, and more recently have leased it to the American Embassy. We supplied over 1,000m of recycled Matai at 135mm x 20mm. The flooring was installed by our client’s builders, Timber Work Building, who specialise in villa restorations, see

The result was a Matai floor that looked like it could have been there since the house was built in 1914.
