Chris from Dunoon contacted Atlas Awnings for some ideas for creating an outdoor space for his fantastic property. His home overlooked the beautiful countryside, with views of rolling hills, waterways native bushland and rich agriculture. As you can see from the pictures, it is the most beautiful spot to take in an afternoon sunset.
So Chris’ goal was to make sure the alfresco area made the most of the views, as well as catered for the changing conditions. He wanted a spa area and roof that looked great and was functional.
The insulated panels create a modern finish that matches the rest of the construction. The hip roof design creates height, and focuses the attention towards the spa.
The insulated roof in a four way hip design gives a unique look to the spa area. In the centre of the roof, a ceiling fan and light gave the area more comfort and light, increasing the usable hours. The smooth surfaces of the insulated roof gave the area a sophistication, as well as matching the colours and styles of the original house. The end result was an area that complimented and improved the feel of the home, as if it had always been there.
Patio Blinds for Wind protection
If you have ever lived on the side of a hill, you would know how windy it can get. Along with the afternoon sun, the wind is one of the main reasons outdoor spaces don’t get used as much as they should. To solve this problem, Atlas installed patio blinds to the posts and beams. That way Chris could unwind after a long day in the spa, and if the wind was too much, he could wind down mesh blinds to create a cosy secluded area to extend the time outside.
The wise merbau hardwood decking boards add a touch of class to the alfresco area. The organic materials match perfectly to the rural setting.
The Merabu decking with 140mm wide boards extending up to and around the spa gives the area a great finish. For that extra wow factor, you can’t go past hardwood decking when finishing a high-quality job like this.
From Design to completion
There was a considerable amount of management involved in this project, from working with the client’s ideas, right through to building and assembling the final product. Atlas Awnings looked after the entire project project including obtaining council approval. When you are creating an area of this level, it always pays to use someone you can trust.
