About the project
A notable trend has emerged towards expanding outdoor living spaces in the relaxing and peaceful coastal suburb of Gold Beach, Queensland. Many homeowners are seeing the benefits of enhancing their properties to enjoy the beautiful Queensland climate. One great example is David Newton, a Sunshine Coast patio and carport builder, who decided to upgrade his Golden Beach home.
In June 2022, David chose to add a stylish and spacious verandah extension to the back of his ‘beach shack’, seamlessly blending the indoors with the outdoors. He built an elegant deck and patio with a gable-style patio to complement the roofline and design of his home. His vision? To invite the outdoors into his daily life, embracing Queensland’s delightful climate all year round. This space would serve as a hub for entertaining family and friends and a serene retreat for sharing moments with his wife. On the left-hand side, David designed an expansive dining and entertainment area, while on the right, he created a private, secluded lounge using operable shutters and vertical aluminium slats.
“Living in a coastal area, we’re no strangers to unpredictable weather, from seasonal rains to tropical storms and gusty winds. So, when planning our home renovation, choosing materials capable of withstanding these conditions was important,”
David – Homeowner
As a builder specialising in Ausdeck patios and outdoor living products, the choice for David was clear. Ausdeck, proudly Australian-made and renowned for its quality and exceptional customer service, offers a one-stop solution for patios and carports.
David opted for Ausdeck’s dependable insulated patio system with a marine-grade finish, our low-maintenance Trex composite decking, our versatile and modern Nirvana operable shutters and our easy-to-install Quick Screen aluminium slats. By combining these products, he created the perfect lifestyle for him and his family.
Insulated roofing is an innovative 3-in-1 solution that offers a roof, insulation, and ceiling all in one product. Its smooth ceiling and clean lines effortlessly connect the indoors with the outdoors. With exceptional thermal and acoustic qualities, it offers year-round comfort to enjoy the outdoors in winter or summer. Another standout feature lies in its design flexibility and superior spanning capabilities, enabling unobstructed views, making it an ideal choice for elevated verandah settings.
Trex composite decking is a popular building material crafted from recycled wood fibres and a blend of plastics. While it emulates the classic appearance of traditional wood decking, it offers the advantages of being low-maintenance, exceptionally durable, and built to withstand diverse weather conditions. With a wide range of colours and textures available, Trex composite decking provides the flexibility to achieve both timeless and modern aesthetics for your outdoor space.
Operable louvre shutters and aluminium slats are fantastic additions to any space. They grant you the power to control privacy, allowing you to enjoy your surroundings without prying eyes. You can also regulate the amount of natural light and airflow streaming in, providing a comfortable atmosphere year-round. Made of aluminium, they're a perfect fit for coastal settings, as they can withstand the challenges of salt and sea, ensuring long-lasting functionality and style.
