These clients wanted a new outdoor entertainment area for family and friends. Outside Concepts Bayside designed and delivered a brilliant solution.
The existing dated and rotten pergola was removed and replaced with a timber gable verandah. To maximise the ceiling height the roof was attached to the house using rafter brackets. These brackets connect through the fascia and onto the existing house rafters allowing a post-free beam to support the roof. A box gutter runs between the house and entertainment area keeping your space dry and free of drips.
Next the deck was installed using 140mm Merbua hardwood, each board being individually screwed down to prevent any cupping in the future. Merbau is a deservedly a popular choice in decking timber, offering long lengths, excellent durability, hardness and a brilliant finish once oiled or stained.
To complete the job Pinz Ziptrak blinds were fitted between the equally spaced posts. Neatly tucked beneath the eave of the gable, these blinds protect the verandah from rain on anything but the heaviest of downpours. By using Shadeview fabric, heat and light are reduced while ensuring good air circulation is maintained – something of vital importance on a hot day.
Whether the blinds are open or closed, up or down, this Bayside entertainment area has it all. Bayside brilliance!
