Nestled in an Olive Grove

Below is the experience of Jan and John of Amberly, North Canterbury:

“We are just completing a house build on an olive grove in North Canterbury and chose two products from The Natural Paint Company.

The first product was oil-based interior Wood Varnish (uncoloured) for our plywood ceiling panels before they were installed and after we had applied a steel wool/vinegar stain to give the panels an aged look.  The completed ceiling and beams look rather substantial and give the whole living area a great sense of space.

The second product we chose was Matt Interior Wall Paint in the colour ‘Goats Cheese’ (and Wall Paint primer/sealer) which we have applied on all the interior walls and flat ceilings throughout the house.

We would recommend The Natural Paint Company to anybody.  James was a very good listener and I felt that he was concerned about us purchasing the correct products for the tasks required of them.  He was also extremely friendly and obliging which helped considerably in our enjoyment of the work.  His knowledge of the products is obviously extensive.”

Terra Firma Houses

This gallery showcases houses built by Terra Firma Earth Building Ltd that have used our paints and oils for interior and exterior joinery and walls.

“Your products suit our eco homes perfectly. Your paint products are excellent to use, they go on with ease, touch ups are made easy and our clients enjoy the colour range. The oils and varnishes compliment the large amount of wood we use in our homes and bring out the natural colours and effects in the wood and offer lasting protection. We have found the advice and support of the staff at The Natural Paint Company to be extremely helpful.” – Doug Clark (Painter), Terra Firma Earth Building Ltd.

Please note that some of the houses here have only used our oils for the joinery and left the earth walls unpainted.
