Luxury Townhouses require special consideration when it comes adding a deck.
This up market home (above) in Melbourne's Eastern suburb of Heathmont, enjoys wonderful vistas of the adjoining golf course. The home's owners were of Scottish origin and retired. They were looking forward to morning tea on their new deck, whilst observing the local birdlife on the golf course.
Timber Decking Now received a request to quote and offer ideas for the construction of the proposed deck. It did not take us long to demonstrate our ability through photos, references and practical knowledge.
After receiving an additional two quotes, the retired owners awarded the project to Melbourne Deck Builders, Timber Decking Now.
In doing so they stated "it's not all about price, it's as much about feeling good with the people you are dealing with!"
This swim spa was installed by Melbourne Deck Builders, TIMBER DECKING NOW's client to ward off the onset of a serious physical disease.
The original photo shows an old deck and an overgrown garden that was once a veggie patch. The deck had to be demolished and removed from the site and all the vegetation removed prior to an excavation of the the site for the spa.
The spa contains EIGHT THOUSAND LITRES of water and therefore had to be installed on a 200mm thigh reinforced concrete pad.The spa was craned in over the neighbours fence and placed on its concrete base and supported by a galvanised steel frame.
The subfloor for the new deck had to enclose the spa completely on all sides a shown in the photo. Access to the site was tough as there was only a side path down the opposite side of the home and around a corner which was quite overgrown small shrubs and flower beds.
The chosen decking was a COMPOSITE material, due to its very high resistance to moisture, insect attack and practically ZERO maintenance.
The project was demanding, but worth the effort. The lady owner was a delightful person and was showing amazing courage in her efforts to combat slowly her deteriorating condition. From the Timber Decking Now perspective, we were glad to have been of assistance and knew that the client had done her homework and chose very carefully whom she was going to trust with this project.
As it turned out the client asked that Timber Decking Now take full control of every facet of the project, which we accepted and undertook in a very serious manner. The end result spoke for itself, nothing more needed to be said!
This brand new home in Croydon, in Melbourne's outer East was built into the side of a hill. Large high retaining walls were constructed with terraces to maximise the available space.
The home owners wanted the entire rear and side entrance decked using 90mm Merbau as the preferred finish.
Access to the site was very difficult. The high retaining walls and terraces required all the materials to be carried down from an adjoining vacant lot of land at the rear. Thankfully the weather was on our side. This allowed the the materials to be placed close to the top of the cut. However, the steep path down meant care had to be taken when carrying lengths of timber and bags of concrete.
The home was on three levels, with three individual access points onto the proposed deck. In response to this, Melbourne Deck Builders, Timber Decking Now designed the large deck with three different levels to accommodate the access points. Full width terrace steps married each level to the next, creating an expansive open deck which maximised the available space.
The project in itself was challenging, but the end result was worth the great effort from all concerned. The delighted owners gained exceptional value for money and were full of praise for the totally issue free performance of the timber Decking Now team.
