Built new to look like an authentic woolshed, the owners off this cafe have done an amazing job. Completed September 2012, The Woolshed replaces an the old homestead that had burnt down that they had operated in. Our Timber Consultants worked in closely with the Palmerston North based Approved Reseller and the builder to come up with a number of unique solutions for this project.
Initially we supplied 190 x 70 Kingfisher SG8 Dry Radiata floor bearers to support the structure. Then there was the custom run ex 150 x 25 Kakapo Cladding in Radiata Clears, bevel back, band sawn face. Large 250 x 250 Weka No.1 posts were used in the entry way and Weka SG8 posts on the handrail and deck construction and Kakapo Clears for the balustrades. Going inside band sawn face Douglas Fir exposed trusses make a feature of the ceiling. Behind these is a custom run sarking product from Kakapo Dress Grade with dressed 1 face, 2 edges to achieve a consistent width and thickness and the seen face left it is natural rough sawn state to give a rustic woolshed look to it.
Themed decor inside and beautiful colour selection give this cafe real character. Different eating areas mean you have a number of options where to dine, including an outside balcony with wool presses for bar leaners!
The Woolshed Cafe is situated on State Highway One, just 1 km south of Sanson and only a short drive from Palmerston North and Feilding.
The Woolshed Cafe offers a relaxing spacious eating experience with friendly service. The different areas in the cafe enable us to cater for groups of different sizes and needs without compromise. So whether you are wanting to get out into the countryside for a relaxing breakfast or lunch, travelling past on your way somewhere else and need a breather or are planning a private function, the Woolshed Cafe is the place to go.
