These homeowners are also a busy working couple. They found a relatively newly built home to purchase that suited their needs however the garden and outdoor areas were not all they desired; well the garden was non-existent really. There was an uncover area suitable for outdoor dining but they also wanted a private outdoor area they could use all year round for relaxing. So, it needed to have protection from the elements, but still retain a feeling of being outdoors, otherwise you may as well just sit inside. Liz designed a pavilion with warm timber and stone elements and stainless steel laser cut screens for a touch of glam. Vertical Cedar louvers can be adjusted to shut out the wind or let a breeze through. The north side has been left open to allow the winter sun to wash in. A heater and television were to be incorporated in the area also. Liz formulated a set of drawings, arranged engineering computations and submitted the permit for council approval. Then she and her crew had fun completing the build.
A garden to the front and rear yards was constructed with concrete mower edging to facilitate easy maintenance. A bespoke letterbox was designed and constructed by Liz adding to the personality of the property. A water feature was also on the wish list. There are a lot of tacky looking off the shelf water features around and that was what we didn’t want. The water feature we installed was one of the timeless creations from Kooper Tasmania.
