Thanks Karl & Greetings from Australia!

We are still pretty new to Millboard Decking over here but it's certainly creating alot of excitement! There's nothing else out there quite like it.

Actually I just finished the new Millboard website last week - If you get a chance you should check it out over at http://www.millboarddeck.com.au
