SWINGING THE CAT......... NOT!
This relatively new unit in Burwood was a great home, but lacked entertaining space.
A small existing open deck was fine for a cuppa in the morning sun, but offered no protection from the elements, nor was it large enough for a little Alfresco dining.
The new owners wanted firstly to enlarge the deck and have it extended thereby allowing it to wrap around the corner of house.
A new set of steps was specified to gain access from an existing paved courtyard. In addition a new right angled gabled roof was requested to protect the entire structure.
Balustraded handrails completed the clients request.
After demolishing the existing undersized structure, Melbourne Deck Builders, Timber Decking Now proceeded with the new construction and completed the works in seven working days, with the owner following us up with a paint brush on a daily basis.
This deck project in Kilsyth was one of those "ideal" projects, where every factor was in TIMBER DECKING NOW's favour!
The home was new, with no obstructions (like trees and shrubs). The access was excellent with a nice big side gate. There was plenty of room to place materials and set up a saw bench. Lastly, the weather was on our side, so there were no days lost where we were rained off site!
The clients briefing was simple, "Build me a deck using 140mm Merbau, fill in around the sides and give me a Subfloor access door. Then, add a privacy screen, stainless steel wire handrails, and lastly a set of steps down onto the back yard!"
"No problem" was our reply... and away we went and built exactly that.
Needless to say, the owners were delighted with the result, as was their cat, which spent half the day sitting by the window watching the team and making sure all was been done to its satisfaction!
Interestingly, TIMBER DECKING NOW (then trading exclusively under the name 'Decaid') built another deck identical to this one a year or so later in North Ringwood.
The photos of this project "sold" the second one, when the North Ringwood owners said "build ours exactly like that one!"
