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.
This new home in the basin was surrounded by mud, causing the young couple plenty of problems trying to keep their new home clean and tidy.
To make matters worse, they could not access their clothes line or use the rear roller door to the garage during the wet months.
Melbourne Deck Builders, Timber Decking Now, built this large and imposing deck to suit the young couples outdoor lifestyle. The deck was constructed during the muddy Winter of 2003.
Timber Decking Now was 'rained off' on three occasions during the construction period, making this project a drawn out battle with the elements. However, the end result justified the effort, with the new owners extremely happy with the multilevel finish.
