Jean-Yves’ Pool
The deck will be extended too, and we’ll use merbau wood
Unfortunately, I have lost some photos, so I can’t show what has happened in between. Lots of hard work went on to get to that point !
For the people who like wood
For stumps, we’ll use cypress as termites don’t like it
For the joists and sleepers, we’ll use treated pine
And for the deck, we’ll use beautiful merbau wood.
Merbau is the name of the wood from the Ipil tree (Intsia bijuga),
it is very resistant and durable. Unfortunately, it’s only recently that I read that the ipil tree was an endangered specie. I would hate to have contributed to the disappearance of such a beautiful tree.
