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.

Bryan & Karen did a Fantastic job at our place to put a pool fence with concrete footing involved! Work is Clean and Fabulous! Bryan finished his job exactly as agreed and on time! My biggest worry was how I will clean the mess after concrete footing as lots of dirt and digging involved...However Bryan and Karen left my property very clean! Great Job Guys!! And thank you!

When your partners an ex fencer and couldn't build our fence due to injury I knew we needed a fencer who was going to have big shoes to fill. Mark you did an amazing job and filled those shoes. I would 100% recommend you to anyone who needs a new fence. Thank you.

Our company recently engaged Warren Smith from VIP home services to have a fence replaced on behalf of one of our clients. We found Warren to be both professional and thorough in his approach and workmanship with a real can do attitude. We have since used his services on 2 further occasions and would have no hesitation in recommending him. Regards Russell Mcinnes

Not only did we get a better result than we thought possible, but Shaun was highly professional in every way and a pleasure to work with. Thank you very much Shaun and VIP Home Services. Hugely recommend!

Hi Ben. Just a short note to again indicate my appreciation for the replacement of two fences for my daughter and me. From the first contact with you when you provided me with quotes, I was pleased with several things; (a) your promptness in providing the quotes, (b) your professional and considered advice as to what was the best material etc. that suited our requirements and finally the professional completion and appearance of the fences that were done in a timely manner. Due to your professional work and friendly disposition, I would have no hesitation in recommending your work to anyone. Regards Neil O’Loughlin.
