Hints and Recommendations

  • I recommended you use either LOSP (planed smooth, treated and pre-painted), Permapine, or other rot and termite proof timber.
  • Use only bolts and screws with a recommended coating for treated timbers to help avoid erosion of the fixings – I prefer to use screws rather than nails, a far better connection and no risk of hammer marks on the timber.
  • Applying at least 2 coats of paint to all cut ends, notches etc. before assembly helps to ensure that no raw timber is exposed to the elements and thus protecting it further from water rot or termites.
  • A light sanding between coats helps to give a great smooth painted surface.
  • By fully painting the entire structure and letting it dry before placing the roof sheets on (if applicable) ensures that no paint gets on the underside of the roof iron, leaving a superior painting job for you to admire for years to come.
  • Do as many cuts as possible using a miter saw where possible, this will give a nice straight cut and better surface for painting.
  • Please follow all safety guidelines when using power tools and machinery.

Footings and Ground Levels (if applicable)

  • All designs are based on a flat and level ground/site. Any variations with the level will need to be taken into account before cutting any posts to length.
  • Footing sizes (if applicable) can vary depending on your wind zone, terrain category and site location; and are the responsibility of the buyer to establish.

Council Approvals (if required)

  • Please check with your local council if planning and/or building approval is required before commencing construction.
  • You may be required to lodge a small application for planning and/or building.
