Thanks for confirming Bob (@griffos).

 

@EricL will be back on the site on Friday to assist you. In the meantime I would recommend you sharing more details about the space you have and what dimensions you are looking at. Do you have a basic plan at this stage you could share?

Re: Materials for outdoor patio

Hi @griffos,

 

The pergola materials were purchased as a kit from Softwoods (timber, roof sheets, gutters and all fixings included). Bunnings does stock some of their kits however I purchased this one directly from a quote provided by their online planning tool as it needed to be a specific size and needed to attach to my current roof in multiple sections.

 

The decking materials are 90mm x 90mm treated pine posts for the stumps, 45mm x 90mm treated pine for bearers and joists, and specrite 140 x 19mm 2.7m Pre-Oiled Merbau Select Grade FJ Decking for the decking boards. Bearers were attached to walls with 100mm dynabolts, joists were hung into joist hangers and I used Buildex 10 x 65mm 8TPI Climacoat Coating Decking Screws - 500 Pack for securing the decking boards. All of these deck materials came from my local bunnings.

 

Hope this helps!

Hello @tom_builds

 

Thank you so much for providing that information about your patio build. I'm sure @griffos will appreciate the advice you've shared on where to source the building materials for their outdoor patio. 

 

Your assistance to our members is always appreciated.
