New balcony Photo: Handyman
Views of the ocean from a loft room were limited so plans were submitted to council for development approval of a tiled balcony that also covers a new garage.
A joint tradie and DIY effort minimised expenses. The first part of the project involved building a freestanding 6000 x 2800mm high rendered brick wall with engaged piers to support the balcony.
THE CONSTRUCTION PLAN
●1 Connect the house wall to the new support wall with a timber frame.
●2 Lay a waterproof floor of compressed fibre cement (FC) sheets over the frame, securing to the joists.
●3 Add a balustrade of posts and a handrail with stainless steel wire.
●4 Complete the balcony with large ceramic tiles.
