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.

The room replaces a run-down shed and extends the outdoor covered living area provided by an existing deck & verandah. The studio is fully insulated & features Flooded Gum T&G flooring (secret nailed), KD Australian Hardwood linings to the openings, Western Red Cedar bevel board siding & colorbond Custom Orb sheeting, both internally & externally.
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.
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.
