Living Outdoors at Home
posted on 05 July 2020 08:38 PM

Looking to create or revamp an outdoor area ready for the warmer months? Now is the time to start! Outdoor living is an integral part of the Australian lifestyle. On the Central Coast, not only do we love our sunny days, we also have the advantage of wonderful sea breezes that flow through our towns which are especially welcoming in the summertime. It is not unusual to see many of us dining & relaxing outdoors for the better half of the year. Australian’s have always loved the relaxed and vibrant feel of being in an outdoor dining or lounge area and this has been a strong influence in many of our transformations at Auscape Exterior Transformations.Having a home with those additional outdoor areas not only brings value to your home, but also encourages a healthier lifestyle. Bringing the outdoors into your daily life allows you to get more time to spend in the fresh air, relax and enjoy time with family and friends and even get some vitamin D. Even the simplest extension can drastically improve the aesthetic of your home and alter your way of living motivating you to spend more time taking advantage of the outdoors in the comfort of your own home.There are numerous ways to incorporate beautiful outdoor areas into your home that can be as extravagant or as simple as you like. Some of the most common options are extending off an existing indoor zone creating a patio or alfresco area bringing the indoors out. This is probably one of the best ways to enlarge the look of your home and provide an attractive area for dining, lounging and entertaining guests. It can often be a small investment that adds greater value to your property. Pergolas, Pavilions or Gazebos are another neat little addition to a backyard that can present as an inviting space where you can really appreciate your garden. It is often a favourite for those who frequently love a good BBQ cook up and, in some cases, a convenient dining zone alongside an outdoor firewood oven. These types of additions can be not so invasive to build as it is usually detached from your house.Another value-added installation on your home can be a balcony or a deck. Building a lower level deck can sometimes be a less costly project that can enlarge the look of an existing living area the same way an alfresco or patio would but providing an airy sunlit space to enjoy. Upper level balconies are an option that can really add style to the look of your home. They can be made to be used as an extravagant open area to entertain guests or an intimate little zone to sneak out onto from your bedroom to enjoy a quiet cup of tea and relax. Whatever ideas you have in mind, get in touch with us and we can help make them a reality.

A Big Thank You

2020 has brought us a lot of very interesting things, some of which have been extraordinary and some quite tragic. One big event for us, was the completion of a 5-year long contract we had achieved at the beginning of the year. Located on the idyllic Mid North Coast of NSW, Laurieton Residential Resort contains over 300 beautiful new homes. The team at Auscape Exterior Transformations meticulously provided this massive project with the service of installing Cladding Systems with Dulux Exsulite, applying Rendering and Exterior Painting on all the buildings in the resort. We have received very positive feedback from our client who acknowledged the attention to detail and the efficient execution of work done by the team.We would like to extend a big Thank You to our Auscape Exterior Transformations team on this project, namely Scott Sutherland, Dirk Sexton-Holdsworth, Jade Massey, Nathan Kemp, Zac Unsworth, Corey Bowmaker, Johno McCleod, Karl Hoyle, Andrew Johnson, Blake Unsworth, Luke Green, Hamish Clarke, James Lewis, Cori Andrews and Paul Noble. Your hard work, dedication and effort truly showed throughout the 5 years of this project and we are very proud to have you all on the Auscape Exterior Transformations Team.
