As space becomes a luxury in Auckland, extending your home as the family grows without compromising on outdoor living space is problematic. Stefan and Krissy already had a pool which they wanted to keep, but by extending the existing house they would lose all of their outdoor living areas. They came to us with the idea of having a retractable deck sitting under the extension allowing them to use the pool in summer, but then extend out over the pool giving them an open deck area for outdoor entertaining when needed. This was very ambitious and exciting at the same time and we were lucky to be a part of this project.
Progress on site as the extension and deck are carefully built around the existing pool.
