Weatherboard cladding used on the house is a shiplap cedar board, that has had a Resene stain applied prior to installation.  The Herman Pacific Cedar is from North America (supplied through Carters), and the stain was used purely for aesthetic reasons. The weatherboards are stored flat on-site ready for application at which time they will be fixed onto a rainscreen system that is formed by a cavity that separates the cladding from the timber framed walls.  Vertical timber battens fixed to the outside of the 'Ecoply Barrier' are used to achieve this.

The weatherboards.

Wind and rain protection is temporarily fixed to protect the house interior
from the recent bad weather.



 Copper flashings have been used at the base of the weatherboards to over-flash 
the plaster finished foundation walls

Is the cedar grown in NZ? And why stain it, isn't it durable enough without staining? Cheers!

Why is there patches of building paper over the top of the ecoply?

If you are referring to the white plastic with 'CARTERS' written on it, this was put in place for weather protection in a storm Auckland was exposed to. It protected the inside of the house from the rain and wind. It is not part of the construction.
