Deck and verandah: Noble Park North

The clients, Nick and Noelene, wanted to achieve a number of objectives.

232Firstly, the entrance to the house was very bare with a set of concrete steps that were both ugly and difficult for Noelene’s disabled mother to negotiate. Second, as a keen gardener, Noelene wanted to create a feature area for potted plants. Third, the family wanted a pleasant outdoor seating area where they could enjoy the afternoon sun and early evenings without encroaching onto the driveway. With a young family in the equation, the budget was also pretty tight.

Scope of works: Build a level, raised deck on sloping ground, level with the high front entrance at one end, and going around the front of the house at garden level. Include a wooden step, on the gradient, parallel to the drive. Cover the decking with a verandah including gutters and downpipes.

Works required:235

Project duration: One week (July 2011)

Noelene’s feedback: “We are thrilled to 234bits with the end result. It has transformed the whole look of the house. We have this fantastic extra outdoor space now and can manoeuvre mum more easily into the house. There’s room for the kids’ dirty shoes and all the greenery I had planned. It’s the ideal outcome, done quickly, without any fuss.”
