Considering heritage is an important matter – many people want exterior additions such as patios and carports to compliment their existing home, so as not to detract from the facade or detailing of the original structure. Many companies simply don’t provide a custom design service, but here at Outside Concepts every carport, verandah and patio is customised to suit your needs and tastes. We go the extra mile to source traditional materials and utilise suppliers who specialise in detailed woodwork and decorative mouldings which will make your heritage project just that little bit more authentic.

The owners of this gracious freestone house with return verandah (circa 1933) required a carport to compliment the house. In keeping with the limited budget, contemporary construction methods and materials were chosen and extra care was put into the detailing and finishing to give the project visual compatibility with the older style home. The B&D panel lift door was chosen in preference to the modern Roll-a-Door and a custom gable infill was designed and carefully constructed to reflect the original detailing on the house.

Paint colours were carefully selected – the body of the carport was painted with Colorbond Paperbark to compliment the stone facings while remaining neutral and not detracting from the visual appeal of the house. The new structure was linked into the front facade by using the same deep red on all gable fascia boards. The result is smart, sleek and cleverly discreet.

So if quality design and detailing at a price you can afford is what you want, look no further than Outside Concepts Eastern (SA). Call today to arrange a site visit to discuss your heritage building needs on 0402 084 948.
