Story behind our Outdoor Living Rural Property
Clients Brian and Vicki have an amazing rural property near Dural, North West of Sydney with killer views,
but no extended outside living area to further capture and bath in that tranquility.
The deck has a westerly outlook. We wanted to not completely block out the sun but to have substantial shade, so we faced the battened very close together
so with the mid-day sun came a lot of shade but as the sun set you could capture that through from the westerly outlook.
We also incorporated a fire pit into the timber deck, which took a little bit of engineering so that is was safe and not combustible.
For the decking boards we ran with NSW spotted gum. The rest of the structure is made out of design pine, which is an exterior treated, pre-primed product.
A clever concealed fixing system was used on the pergola, so you couldn’t see any of the fixings. All the hand-scrolled details were marked and cut by hand.
Meanwhile inside, a custom Wine Cellar was built crafted out of cedar.
The wall is triple insulted. The cellar needs to stay at a consistent 16 degrees, all year round and given one of the walls is external, it took a lot of insulating.
The door is a double skinned door with a drop-down sealer, when you close it activates and drops down and seals it off to the ground.
With the raised garden beds planted out, the deck looked like it was a part of the original build.
It seamlessly fits in with the existing house and studio, creating flow and balance.
In the practice of feng shui outdoor spaces like this not only add a sense of calm and tranquility to the area, they also attract positive chi resulting in
increased harmony, balance and prosperity.
The finished product is beautiful and really creates a tranquil place for the family, now having a usable space at the rear of their property
to admire and take in that breathtaking view.
