Poolside in Bayside – a construction story

This fabulous home in the suburb of Bayside, south east of Melbourne, was in need of a pergola to protect them from summer sun, so they called in the outdoor living specialists, Outside Concepts Bayside.

David Buntin, owner of the Outside Concepts Bayside branch designed this wonderful poolside tropical-style pergola and the building team moved in. A 15 degree pitch roof was constructed; the rafters and purlins installed flush to allow the clear polycarbonate to sit flat, rather than above the roof. While this is a more time-consuming construction method, Outside Concepts was prepared to detail the construction to meet the customer’s design criteria – the aim being to create a neat, sleek look – the Ampelite polycarbonate sheeting providing effective waterproofing to an otherwise traditionally ‘open-style’ pergola.

To complete the picture and create the tropical beach-feel, ‘Eden’ bamboo screening (available from Bunnings) was installed to filter and modify the suns’ rays.

Now the family can sit and relax in all weather and at all times of the day – protected from both sun and rain under their poolside pergola. So use our freecall number 1800 601 674 to call David Buntin today for advice on your outdoor living needs.
