So, you always have to start somewhere. An old, narrow & unusable rear deck area. The tiles were falling off, stairs were rusting but essentially the area was not user friendly – there was no space for any outdoor living.

Take a look at the Before and After transformation. So this is the beginning…

Naturally, as most our projects do, we took care of the process to obtain Development Consent.

This included:

  • Drafting of plans
  • Colating of all required documentation including obtaining a BAL Assessment
  • Submission to Ku-ring gai Council
  • Sydney Water approval
  • Inspections
