The Electro Black Ace opening roof subtly reflects the natural hues of the Tasmanian landscape, creating an inviting and adaptable outdoor space for the family to enjoy.

From the client:

”It was an amazing build. Everyone made such an effort to show their craft and knowledge which was obvious to the judges. I so enjoyed working with the entire team. Our home will be a legacy build and one that showcases the site, materials, products and skills of all involved. I’m busy now planting trees and gardens to suit”

”The roof works so well and makes the courtyard an all year area rather than just the summer months. In fact we sit out there with the fire going with friends on a regular basis sharing a wine or three and with the roof closed its toasty warm.”
