Abodo: Timber with a purpose

Formed in 2001 by the Gudsell family, Abodo is a New Zealand-owned, family business with a purpose. They craft timbers with lasting beauty that are safe for people and the environment, and are a great option to help you build your dream sustainable home on Rangitahi.

Abodo do things differently, their timber is rapidly renewable, and carefully crafted so that they can be enjoyed for years to come.

Harvested from New Zealand’s FSC® certified rapidly renewable plantation forests, Abodo timber is ethically crafted with respect from beginning to end – meeting today’s increasing needs without disadvantaging future generations. And what's also cool is their timber is designed to age with grace, with exceptional weather-ability they maintain their durability and beauty for a lifetime. Ensuring your homes on Rangitahi will stand the tests of time (& the coastal conditions) and guaranteed to look beautiful for years to come!
