Edwardian Style - Seaforth
At Vergola, we love a challenge
Susan, from the northern Sydney suburb of Seaforth, had a vision to turn her outside living area into a protective oasis the whole family could enjoy throughout the year.
The challenge was to find a structure that would not only provide protection from the wind, rain and sun in their north-facing yard, but would also complement the intricate timberwork on her Edwardian style home.
"We wanted to find a company that could come up with a design in keeping with the period," said Susan.
So Susan chose a custom-made Vergola outdoor louvre roofing system.
The 6m x 6m Vergola was custom designed and built to fit a U-shape space near the family's English garden.
"We wanted something other than metal framing," says Susan. "I showed them a photo of a verandah we liked and they were able to copy it. The Vergola designer used round columns and big timber beams to match our house.
He put my vision together to get it just perfect. He did this by listening to me and putting it all together on paper. The phone calls, the extra visits - nothing was a problem to him.
The service was amazing. It looks incredible. And the builders were a pleasure to have on our property. They were outstanding.
We love our Vergola. It's wonderful."
