Outdoor Rooms

Living on the Gold Coast and Brisbane is all about outdoor living. Whether you enjoy a BBQ or simply having a quiet drink with friends under the stars, why not make your best room in your house, your new outdoor room.

An outdoor entertainment area is not a new concept. They started out on the Queenslander house as large timber verandahs and have evolved to become sophisticated outdoor rooms, alfresco areas even with outdoor kitchens.

Generally Gold Coast and Brisbane houses are orientated so that their living areas could open out towards their best aspect, which take advantage of either water or garden views or breezes. So why not add an outdoor room, that will merge indoor and outdoor living seamlessly, and add a degree of comfort to your outdoor living area, that can be enjoyed all year round.
