Finishes You Can Trust

Natural House Company’s finishes are blended using Tung Nut Oil, Tree Resins, Plant Waxes, Micro Earthen Pigments, Essential Oils, Lead Free Dryers, Pure Solvents … and lots of passion. Most of our oils are made by us here in New Zealand, finishes that combine time honoured ingredients with the best of todays understanding.

We can proudly claim that a timber floor finished with our ‘Java Oil’ and easily maintained with the ‘Microwax System’, will provide a floor for life … never needing to be sanded again. Java High Solid Oil is used on the floors of many homes, galleries, restaurants and commercial buildings nationwide.

Building a Healthier Future

For the past ten years, we have teamed with ‘Health Based Building’, developing high-performance, breathable timber finishes.

Our combined knowledge, experience and the desire to create a healthy build environment, has resulted in ‘ForeverBreathe‘ oils … a range of finishes in perfect harmony with ‘EarthenRadiata’ exterior cladding and ‘ForeverBeech’ interior floor and joinery timbers.

Very few people are aware the building industry is responsible for 39% of global carbon emissions. 28% from operational emissions (energy required to heat, cool and power) and the remaining 11% from materials and construction. (The World Green Building Council 2019)

The goal of the Health Based Building Demonstration Home is for people to experience a fully monitored toxin-free, sustainable environment first-hand. (image links below)
