Whilst celebrating their wedding anniversary Karen and Stuart Windross came across an idyllic location in Mahurangi. A few years later they purchased the section, parked up their caravan and never really left until their new home was completed.
Stuart was involved in every step of the build, from concepts and site plans to specifying the materials used throughout the house. Stuart and Karen were eager to use the Marley Stratus Design Series since it was first launched in 2011 and sought it out for this property.
We’ve had Marley spouting and downpipes in our previous home and it lasted us 27 years. If the Stratus Design Series lasts as well here, we will be very happy with that
The Windross family wanted a durable spouting and downpipe system which could stand up against this northern coastal environment, whilst matching the overall aesthetic. As Stuart explains,
We were very conscious we didn’t want anything that would rust or fail, hence the decision to go with Marley.
This labour of love was completed at the end of 2012, with very pleasing results. “There is always the fear of, will we wish we had done some things differently, but as it turns out we are really thrilled with it all“, explained Stuart.
The Marley Stratus Design Series® is offered in Typhoon® spouting and 80mm downpipe with titanium or copper hybrid-metallic finishes available. The Windross’ utilised the internal brackets in the copper finish.
