Do it Yourself Pergolas

Do it Yourself Pergolasapproval stamp

Do it yourself pergola is very much a common father / son, mate / mate project carried out throughout the suburbs of Australia during the spring to autumn months. Pergola or Verandah structures have grown from a simple “lean to corrugated roof” structure to nowadays full on outdoor rooms with kitchens, tv’s, pool table etc., etc.,.

Solarspan---Outdoor-room-p10As those structures are considered an extension to your dwelling (unless less than 10m2 and not attached ) then generally a building permit is required.

The Project Centre has been offering plan and permit solutions for now well over 15 years for those serious do it yourself pergola builders within the Melbourne metro area. Ensuring your project is properly planned, permitted and executed ensure a successful project. We can provide the experience to assist achieving those goals.

Design Build Expo Melbourne 27th to 29th June 2013

The Design Build Expo is on this coming to Melbourne this week and we will be attending and assisting the BDAV with manning their stand on Wednesday 27th June.

This new-look DesignBUILD features Australia’s largest and most comprehensive showcase of domestic and international building products, services and technologies in an interactive environment, complemented by educational seminars.

This expo has gained significant supports by a large range of leading manufacturers and producers both Australian and Overseas. The expo present’s and opportunity to view touch and learn about some of the leading edge building materials and products in or coming into the building industry segment.

I personally will be most interested in the Green Building Zone which I hope will begin to provide not only environmentally green outcomes at affordable pricing but hopefully options that can gain mass support and inclusion into good design outcomes for Australian Homes and Buildings.
