Project Showcase - Lindfield Structural Features
Job at Hand
After two completed full landscapes to previous homes this client contacted us for a third time to have a look at a newly purchased property to discuss what could be done to achieve an enclosed sunroom. With this requiring council approval and that being a process our client didn’t want to go through we had to think of ways to make it exempt development meaning some strict rules needed to be met. After further research into the property, we discovered that it is on bush fire-prone land meaning all construction would require non-combustible material.
With all this information we then gave our thoughts and designs to our client and with the go-ahead, we began.
The proposed work consisted of a 25m2 pergola that was to have motorized blinds that would create the enclosed space, raising the floor level to reduce stairs from inside the house to outside, and tiling the area to give a more updated look. A timber feature wall for a tv to be mounted on, adding some outdoor lighting and mounted gas heater, and finally some plants to complete the area.
This project was over a 20m elevation from the street with the only way up was 5 sets of stairs and winding ramps. This resulted in all materials being hand-carried in from the street, from aggregate for drainage to 6metres in length roofing sheets everything was carried. Pouring concrete resulted in almost 90metres of the line for the concrete pump too.
