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.

Clint did an excellent job with our back fence. Was flexible and easy to deal with during a busy time and able to fit us into a hectic schedule. Great quote and friendly to work with. Thanks again for the work you did! Would definitely use again.

Thank you Bryan and Karen for a professional, friendly and helpful service. My new side gate is the best. I have been told it was fixed on three separate occasions and overcharged on each one. I really appreciate the way you have both looked after me.

Congratulations to Mark from VIP Home Services fencing for the completion of our classy new Colorbond Fence. Mark integrated our initial ideas with his own suggestions to produce a Breezeway Colorbond fence with zigzag panels, and an eye pleasing appearance. The whole process from design & quoting, demolition of the old fence, to construction with several included extras to perfect the job, was seamless. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone wanting a quality fence made with superior professional standards.
