Build a kitchenette under the existing deck. Enclose the top half and make it part of the dining room. Build a deck and a patio area with a 75mm SolarSpan roof attached to the same side of the house. Concrete the whole area and tile the front entrance areas of the house. Use the same profile of FC cladding to match the old part of the house. This brings uniformity and, in the end, makes the building look as one and not an add-on.
The kitchenette had to have a bit of a statement. The tiles couldn’t be matched because of their age so we had to make it look like it was planned to be different with different dimension floor tiles.
Repaired the ceiling by stripping the internal sheeting and then finding the leak above and sealing it. Once we were satisfied, we insulated the ceiling and placed steel battens at 600mm centres. This was then resheeted with ceiling sheet and set as well as cornice installed and refinished with timber around the rafters.
Used charcoal concrete colour to make all the colours blend in, especially the house brick colours.
