There is also a carport – go here to check that out – Rostron Carport.
The living end of the house, at rear, was somewhat constrained. The kitchen and deck were a little smaller than ideal. Owners were interested in having access down to the rear yard as well.
As part of the carport design, which triggered a DA, with BTP’s help, we managed to argue that the carport could be excluded from the 25m max length of building on site. We added about 1.7m to the rear, which was just enough to help the region feel more spacious. We deduced an added lifted roof at the rear was the best answer. Stairs are exempt from the length consideration, so we designed these to be fully at rear switching back. The mini verandah allowed both access to the stairs and a bbq location.
The enlarged kitchen space allowed for a much better layout for the refitted kitchen, with more bench and pantry space along with being able to open the kitchen onto the now-generous deck.
