Our client had just had a new baby arrive in the family and had a large unsecured space of land out the front and a small backyard area that was just not suitable for a young family. Working together we helped our clients design a practical and child friendly area using timber decking and Knotwood screening to play and entertain friends and guests.
The idea for this project was to create a raised outdoor entertaining area where you could just walk straight out of the front door and onto the deck landing.
To do this we created a very sturdy raised sub-frame base that would allow the top of the Merbau deck boards to sit flush with the top of the stairway. We also aligned the decking stairs to run parallel with their foot path and adjoin into their existing steps.
The sub-frame was constructed using all H3 treated timbers. The bearers and surround used 240mm x 45mm timber and the joists where 90mm x 45mm thick. This created a sturdy structure free from movement or bounce.
The deck surface was constructed using Merbau timber in the 140mm x 19mm wide boards. This gave our clients all the space they required for a large furnished outdoor entertainment area.
Aluminium Slat Privacy Fencing
The next step to this project was to enclose the front yard to create a safe play environment for the family while still keeping the aesthetic of the property. The use of the Knotwood Aluminium product was the perfect accompaniment to the new timber decking.
