In serious need of more living space, a deck addition was the perfect answer.
With a damaged retaining wall and the original staircase rotten through form the weather, we had to start from scratch.
The scope of work included;
- Remove existing deck and entrance.
- Replace damaged retaining wall
- Construct large timber deck and living space
- Supply insulated roof
- Instal large glass sliding door to open up the living space
With limited entertaining space and an underutilized back yard, the team at Chilman projects got to work. Replacing a damaged and dangerous retaining wall and removing the existing rear staircase.
The new block retaining wall was then waterproofed and earth was back filled. The decks substructure could now be erected. the deck was starting to come to life.
The substructure was completed, sealed and protected from the harsh Australian climate. A staircase was than built, followed by decking and the balustrade.
After covering this spacious new entertainment area, a large glass sliding door was installed. Opening up the house and creating a nice flow. The deck was then oiled, turf laid and all final touches completed, creating a vibrant outdoor living space perfect for entertaining and the whole family to enjoy.
