Just the ticket to make the back yard more enjoyable and user friendly.

Pool patio with bamboo awning for filtered shade

Pool patio with bamboo awning for filtered shade

This family found it hard to enjoy their back yard in summer. From lunch time onwards fierce sun streamed into the back of the house and entertaining area making it virtually unusable.

Wanting a bit of shade, and not really knowing how to achieve it, the team at Outside Concepts Brisbane South was consulted. Initially they came up with an  alloy-framed awning (to avoid any rust problems) covered with pulley-operated retractable horizontal blinds.

With the couple’s love of bamboo and an Asian themed yard, customers Paul & Tracey opted for a fixed bamboo screen roof to achieve the dappled light effect they were after.

Using Outside Concepts’ custom engineered aluminium beams provided a flexible roofing system to carry the bamboo screening as well as polycarbonate roofing at a later stage. Several other design solutions were discussed with the customer, including free standing options and mounting the frame to the house. In order to straddle the pool, finding suitable locations for posts provided some challenges.

Building the awning over the pool has certainly been worth the effort and the project has been finished just in time for summer.  Owners Paul & Tracey are very happy and keen to act as referees for the good work by Tony & Lorraine Reeves.

Outside Concepts Brisbane South specialises in working with customers to achieve the results that they want, within their budget, while ensuring we add style and value to the property.
