This is part of our first home reno series. Please remember to read our "Reno & Home Improvement Advice" blog before you attempt such a large project on your own.
Tragic to Magic!
We wanted to create a decked area that gave us ample room to entertain and relax on day or night, which also had a storage element below for non water perishable items like surf boards and the likes.
After measuring up to see what would fit the bill we included it into the renovation plans/drawings for council approval.
We then looked at how we would make it just that bit more special so added in a low maintenance water feature, lined the roof of the pavilion with some Tasmanian Oak left over floor boards, added in down lights to lining boards, placed a night sky colorbond roof on it so it tied in with the rest of the overall project and made it fully waterproof at the same time (originally we were going to have a thatch Bali hut roof but thought better of it as the deck evolved).
Other lighting added was LED spot lights in general including for the water feature and LED stair lights both on stairs and on side of deck above a raised garden bed lighting it and part of the garden up.

We recently had a fencing project completed by Mark and his colleague Curtis who had recently joined Mark to gain further experience in his own business. Curtis was a friendly and personable tradesman, his work was completed in an efficient and timely manner. We had the gate constructed for our new pup in the backyard, but as the result was so nice, wish it could be displayed out front for passers by! Thank you so much!
The fence looks fantastic, thank you Ben. Always on time and kept me fully informed of what stage you where at and always left the area totally clean and tidy.

Angelo recently built in excess of 100m of timber fencing on a very difficult site for my Mother -in - law. The job was completed on time and without fuss. His left the site cleaner than when he arrived. The finished fence exceeded all our expectations and looks amazing. His price was extremely competitive. We have no issue recommending Angelo to anyone who wants a quality fence. If I could give him 6 stars I would.
