Providing all-weather protection to the BBQ, this cantilevered awning structure was built for a private school, designed to blend in with the existing school buildings. Note in particular the matching double posts with cross spacer. The work was carried out on weekends, so as to not disrupt school activities, and to ensure the safety of students.

Verandah with Sunglaze Roofing System, Front View
Verandah with Sunglaze Roofing System, End View
Sunglaze is a flat panel, architectural roofing system producing an elegant, glass like appearance without the corrugated profile of standard polycarbonate sheeting, or the required cross battens. However it comes at a cost, some 10x that of corrugated sheeting, which for this project equated to $5000 extra.
This verandah was built over an existing elevated deck exposed to the northern sun. It features laminated merbau posts, pre-primed LOSP H3 treated pine framing, and the "Sunglaze" roofing system.

Sunglaze Verandah

Portal framed pergola with tensioned cables inside ss rods
Skillion verandah attached to dwelling
The owners of this one year old home facing a rather busy semi-rural road required a new verandah along the north facing wall of their home. This provided much needed solar control , a safe play area for the kids, and a visual buffer between the home & road.

As with all our verandah projects, pre-primed LOSP framing was used to provide a superior quality of finish & long term servicability compared with the more commonly used (and cheaper) lasercut treated pine.

One of the challenges in this project was a redback infestation under the existing roof sheeting. These sheets are required to be lifted in order to install structural metal beam support brackets screwed into the rafters.

A pergola was built between the new verandah & road to provide further privacy , & a place in the sun for family functions. The pergola concept involved 6 black painted portal frames, using 135x135 posts,  tensioned together using 6.4mm ss cable inside 16mm x 1.6 ss tubes. The resultant sculptural contemporary structure has become  a local feature.

Decorative Balcony & Verandah

This timber home had a rather bland facade fronted by a balcony deck in a bad state of repair. The Clients wanted to not only rebuild the balcony, but to enliven their home's street frontage and appeal, while providing improved , undercover, access to their front door and covered relaxation area associated with the master bedroom.

Another part of the equation was to provide sunshading to the large, north facing windows. The sunshade awning constructed is a device that successfully integrates the otherwise separate central verandah, stair and landing, with the larger verandah and balcony at the bedroom end, to provide a unified and cohesive architectural solution across the length of the facade.

To suit the older style of the home, several decorative elements were incorporated, including exposed rafter ends, finials, post capitols and post brackets.

Also featured is 100mm wide Yellow Stringybark decking, exhibiting all the characteristics of a typical Australian Hardwood, with hydraulic swaged stainless steel fittings to tension the ss wire rope balustrading.
