I like that all things stainless store! Railings like the ones you built would cost about $100 a foot here in the states.

You have an exceptionally cool looking yard to work with, the koi pond and water feature just add very nice touches to you WFO.

There always seems to be too much to do so I hadnít managed much work on the oven since I built the deck and railing. The tarpaulin was only ever a temporary cover until we could organise something that would do the area justice. We needed something to enable the pizza oven area to be used in wet weather that sat above the rocks so as not to impede the visual impact of all that sandstone.

So we found a company that does cantilevered structures and after much discussion and planning we came up with this fantastic awning that is mounted to the rock and just hangs out over the area creating a fantastic outdoor room.

Holes were bored nearly 1m deep into the rock and poles inserted with expanding grout.



Because the rock at the top is narrower than the deck below, spreader bars were run across the main beams to widen the coverage.



The main beams are 115mm steel that are 8.5m long. They were carried in by hand, inserted into the top posts at right angles and then swung out into place.



The structure is larger than it looks in the photos. The height from the deck to the middle spreader bar is about 4m.

After the structure was assembled and finessed into the correct position the sail was placed loosely in position. The sail is hi-tech, Teflon coated, fire retardant fabric that should last 20 years or more. A 10mm steel cable is built into the entire perimeter of the sail so it can be tensioned.



You can see here that the stainless tension bolts that attach the sail to the structure are quite long. They are repeatedly tightened in sequence until the entire sail is extremely taut. Then the tail of the bolt is cut off and a lock nut put on.

And here it is all tensioned up with braces installed. It just needs a bit of paint to finish it off.





There is so much space under this thing that these photos donít do it justice Ė it is so open and airy and doesnít feel closed in at all.
