rough cost for a Pergola, Melbourne
Materials would be approx. $1300 - thats treated pine framing and either Colorbond or quality Laserlite roofing
You could concrete after no problems just allow for the height etc
I guess it all depends on the size, the base surface, the roof type, etc.
When i initially got prices, some tradesman took into consideration so many veriables, so i'm…
PERGOLA AND CARPORT ENQUIRY
If your looking at timber for the pergola/ carport I help with design and quoting for materials. You just need to give me the site specs and intened size etc.
PM me if you like
I like the bamboo idea (or some other kind of plant - e.g. a creeper on the fence/on a lattice next to the fence)
Interesting as we bought some off the roll from Bunnings a few years ago, we used it to close in the end of a pergola gable

Glass pool fence
For those looking at doing DIY fences. Beware if you have an area that isn't a standard size.
Then you need the glass to be cut and that will add $$
Freedom Decking Tiles
3.3 x 4.5m. I know it will be expensive but it will be so much easier that hubby might actually get motivated to do it!
Not recommended as its not an overly durable blend of timbers (mostly Alpine Ash and Mountain Ash)
You are better off sticking with durability 1 or 2 timbers.
Does Natural gas burn as hot as bottle gas?

Yes, well the reason I orignally asked the question was because when you buy a BBQ they are usually fitted out for either Natural OR…
Pool Paver sealer
I have always had good results with the crommlins sealers for pavers
Depending on the size/ layout, vertical can leave many more boards with the end grain exposed to the weather. This is the spot water gets in and does its damage.
FREE Victorian Ash - 40mm widths
Victorian Ash ( trade name for mountain ash and alpine ash) is not suitable for outside use. It would be well suited for joinery applications for furniture etc.

Your thoughts on our deck plans...
