I also used MBA in ST Foy but used the flat pressure treated pine. It went down 4 years ago and still looks good, no shrinkage. It turn a nice shade of soft grey

Try MBA Aquitane timber in Ste Foy Le Grande or Bordeaux. They have Itauba hardwood 21mm x 135 smooth decking (Similar to Ipe but less costly)  which I used and they will deliver.

Don't know if this is one of the places that you have been, but their decking and screws are very reasonable. CDA at Aiguillan.

Sorry, I should have made it clear that the frame has been built. We are interested in information regarding the durability of decking boards, either in soft wood or hard wood. (spliting, moving, maintaining their shape/warping etc...) Thank you
