Deck Extension in Ashgrove

The existing deck of this lovely Queenslander home in Ashgrove was not fitting the needs of the owners. There was a lot of wasted space instead of useable space, so a deck extension was requested. Given the deck extension was to be added to an existing second storey deck on the home, a structural engineering assessment including soil testing was an absolute must to ensure this deck was not only going to be able to stand the test of time, but also be compliant with Australian standards and local Brisbane City Council legislation. With a bit of help from the two friendly resident dogs, the beautiful timber deck extension was completed, along with with new ceiling linings, and the installation of down-lights, and ceiling fans. The owners now have a terrific outdoor living room that they can enjoy all year round.
