This beautiful covered deck is testimony to the design skills of Craig Arthur, owner of Outside Concepts Southern branch. He was responding to the brief from the house owner who was committed to the natural beauty of wood and wanted a structure to keep her dry all year round.

Craig put forward the idea of a large gable roof to provide sturdy weather proofing throughout the year. The views over the valley were a feature of the setting worth preserving and Outside Concepts Southern branch positioned the roof apex at a height which captures this. Polycarbonate sheeting was used over the door areas to maximise the entry of light into the internal spaces. Good quality, highly reliable Colorbond roof sheets finished off the job to keep direct sunlight out of the area in summer.

Kapur hardwood was selected as decking timber and is due to be oiled (in a month to allow for some weathering to occur) using one of the best products on the market—Cabots Natural Decking Oil. The oil is resilient to wear and tear and has added tints to provide increased UV protection which enhances the natural highlights of the timber.

If you are dreaming of a beautiful deck like this, call Craig on 1800 601 674 and have him create a similar Southern beauty for you!
