Transformation

AWARD WINNING DESIGNS

Paul & Lisa – Dural

“We first came across Aussie Outdoor Living when they did a transformation of my parents place a number of years ago, turning their scorching hot outdoor area into a more welcoming place where you could sit outdoors without being sizzled.
In the meantime, our own backyard was looking rather sad. A small square of grass, an old timber fence hanging on by a thread and weeds everywhere. Like my parents place, it was also scorching hot in summer, and miserable in winter. The result was that this space was rarely used.
My parents happened to mention to Chris that we were thinking about doing something with our yard, and without any prompting he was onto Google Maps and having a look at the layout. The timing was not quite right, so we never actually had him come around for a look.
Late in 2018 we decided that we could not look at the mess in the backyard anymore and decided to do a makeover, especially with the two kids growing up and needing more space to keep out of each other’s hair. Based on the work he did on my parents place, we didn’t even bother calling anyone else. Chris was at our place almost straight away having a look at the site. With a backyard that sits over 1m above the house, and with an adjacent swimming pool, we really had no idea what was even possible.
We gave a Chris a rundown on what we wanted as an outcome, which was a fairly basic brief consisting of having a new pergola in the backyard where we could entertain/BBQ, where we wouldn’t get wet and which could be used all year. He was measuring and looking at the site from every possible angle, and it was as if he’d already built the whole thing in his head. We had been concerned that our yard just wasn’t suitable for anything, and that it just wouldn’t feel right.
We needn’t have worried. Chris put together a proposal that just blew us away. What started out as “just a pergola” actually turned into a total backyard transformation. Aussie Outdoor Living took care of everything. They put us in touch with a fencer to fix our dodgy fences, he handled all the Council DA process and made it as painless as possible. Through his contacts we also put in a full custom outdoor kitchen.
With a construction team lead by Matt, we watched the transformation begin. When we hit an issue due to some unforeseen site challenges, Chris & Matt were straight onto solutions, updating the design and getting new approvals done without any delay to construction.
The end result is so far above my exceptions that I can’t actually give enough stars to reflect what we now have. The work is top quality, right down to the finest details. Nothing was too difficult for the team. They always left the site clean every day and the disruption was minimal.
The finished product is simply spectacular.  To call it a pergola is not accurate. It is an entire Outdoor Living Room, and we now spend most of our time out there! In fact, this year everyone is coming to our place for Christmas!
If you are looking at doing a backyard makeover, we have no hesitation in recommending Chris and Aussie Outdoor Living Team. In fact, we’re already thinking about a Stage 2 ourselves!”

AUSSIE OUTDOOR LIVING'S PROCESS

1
Design
PHASE ONE

Design Consultation

During the design consultation, Chris will meet with you and discuss your outdoor living and entertaining plans. During this meeting Chris will undertake a site analysis to identify design solutions that capitalise on your homes strengths, opportunities, overcoming any area weaknesses and/or threats ie bushfire prone land. Chris will then brief you on possible design solutions and with your input will present a concept design. This concept design will then be presented in a detailed proposal with specifications and pricing for your perusal.
2
Approval
PHASE TWO

Council Approval

Many of our projects require some form of approval and we have made it super easy for our clients to navigate through this. We will introduce you to a leading specialist based in Castle Hill who will complete the entire approval process on your behalf. Depending on the type of approval, this could take up to 6 - 8 weeks or 3 - 4 months. If you have had any previous renovations completed on your home – we will request copies of approval documents, drawings, plans and surveys as these can be used to expedite the preliminary stages of the approval process.
3
Check Measure
PHASE THREE

Check Measure

Once the project has been Council approved (if it was required), Matt Tooke, our Construction Manager will arrange a final check measure of the project. Matt will ring to organise a time to come out and finalise details of your contracted works. Matt will go over the design, finalise the colours, check measurements and clarify any other aspects of your project. Once the check measure has been completed, the materials for your project will then be ordered, and your project will be placed in the construction calendar waiting to commence! Matt will advise an anticipated construction start date or approximate wait time before construction will commence.
4
Construction
PHASE FOUR

Start of Construction

Matt will call you when all materials are ready to confirm a start date. We will then appoint one of our expertly trained construction teams to your project. Materials will be delivered to your home and unloaded. The construction team will then start prepping the area. This may include demolishing and removing any existing structures. Taking their time, once the area if fully prepared - the team will start prepping beams and posts, dig out footings, start framework etc. Construction may take 4 days to 8 weeks, depending on the size of the project!
5
Completion
PHASE FIVE

Completion of Construction

Matt will communicate with you throughout the construction process. He will keep you closely updated as to when your new outdoor living and entertaining area will be completed. When our construction team have finished and any additional trades have also completed their finishing touches (eg electrician has finished installing new fans, lighting and motorised blinds) - the structure will be detailed and cleaned. It is also at this point that any remaining building debris and waste will be removed. We will not consider your project complete until Matt, the Construction Manager has conducted a final inspection. When Matt advises your works are complete – we will issue a final invoice and provide information on the “after-care” of your building structure.
