When a client from Bayside in Victoria contacted David Buntin from Outside Concepts’ Bayside Branch to erect a verandah, one of the key design briefs was for an outside structure with added headroom.

While verandahs are often attached to the facia of a house, in some cases this can create a structure that is low. Not only can this cause difficulties and potential safety issues for tall people, it can also give people the feeling they are being crowded in. A way of overcoming this issue – and the simple solution for the Bayside homeowners– was for David to suspend the roof of the verandah above the existing house roof, by using extenda brackets. Extenda brackets attach to the roof beams of the house, providing a stronger, waterproof attachment for verandahs.

With one key design brief covered, David then built a beautiful deck underneath the verandah. Merbau timber was used to provide a stylish and easy-to-maintain deck, with steps added at the sides and front for easy access. A simple handrail was also added to the front step for added safety. Due to the low height of the deck, no railing was required, which allows for a better view of the property’s gardens from the verandah.

While the entire project was completed to a relatively low budget, the homeowners are confident their investment has added significant value to their number one asset.
