Decks—more living space
We love the fun we have designing, drawing and building decks. Seriously decks can be fun. (Except maybe digging the stump holes!) Whether you need a high access or a low level we can do it. Here are some pics of decks recently done.
Modern Front Porch
This entrance deck had handrails and small individual steps. We removed and replaced them with a continuous step down and fitted beautiful Merbeau decking boards. The roof timbers were refreshed, stained and new polycarbonate roof sheeting added. The decking has been stained with a Cabot's deck stain - Merbeau. We were very happy with seamless results!
Second Tier Decking Extension
The first is a quite high deck with a vertical boarded screen for privacy. The stairs were lined with Merbeau deck boards connecting the existing deck to the new step down creating a multidimensional outdoor area. Handrail and balustrade are stainless steel wire and fittings.
Pergolas—sun smart & water saving methods
Just as much fun as deck, we also get to do the same with pergolas. From design, using the Light Timber Framing Code, to drawing and construction including roof covering in either polycarbonate or colourbond metal and we include flashings, gutters and down pipes - storm water can be negotiated but can we persuade you to put a small tank or barrel under the down pipe to save the run off?
The brief for this pergola was for a "High Pergola". The existing deck required some movement to secure the posts and the existing roof gutter was removed to enable a new larger box gutter.
This gable end pergola used a bronze polycarbonate roof sheet and looked fabulous. The ends were covered in with polycarbonate as well to keep the breezes out after the clear blinds are installed. The spouting is designed to discharge rain water through a post downpipe to the garden.
