There are many considerations to take into account when planning your new Timber Frame Patio. From the overall position, size and shape to the roof profile, materials and linings – a well considered design will equal a great result.

At Austin Developments we are all about design; good design = great results .

Patio and gazebo structures commonly use timber sizes that are too thin or small for the overall balance of the structure. This can turn a great project into a very average project and reduce the value added by the structure to a homeowners property.
