i have lived in my house for 15 years and never really had a good outdoor area but i made do with what i had. With covid lockdown and spending a lot more time at home the past 3 years it really bugged me so i finally decided this year i was going to make the area what i wanted otherwise i would sell up.
I started the journey in April getting quotes and design ideas (i knew what i wanted but struggled to communicate it). Eventually they understood what i wanted then proceeded to tell me it was crap and wouldn't work, they came up with a better practical solution so i gave the approval.
Everything had to be sent off to design, engineering then council for certification and approval. Was told this should take 4-6 weeks, took 14
Will be an insulated flyover roof with an L shaped bar (polished concrete) to accommodate gas bbq, teppanyaki hot plate, prep bench, kitchen sink, dish washer, 3 tap kegerator and gozney dome pizza oven.
Area will be enclosed with outdoor roller shade blinds.
Works finally started 2 weeks ago with the site preparation, plumbing / electrical, pest and new slab being poured.
Materials are being delivered to site this Friday with works to start on Monday on the structure. Kitchen to be bricked the week after.
