Gazebos the new take on outdoor rooms

Thursday, 13 May, 2010

The summerhouse or outdoor room of the early Romans and Egyptians is set to make a reappearance in the Australian garden.

Known as a Gazebo, this freestanding structure was originally intended to provide shade and rest, while affording a picturesque view of the garden.

And while the aesthetics remain virtually the same - freestanding, octagonal in shape with pitched roof and open sides - the materials and construction method is entirely 21st century.

Suncast Gazebos are the new generation outdoor room that is designed to be maintenance free, self-assembled and forest-friendly!

Manufactured from tough, durable resin (with UV protection) the gazebos look as if they are constructed from timber with a slate roof. In fact, they are made from a high quality resin that will not rust, rot, splinter or fade. They will not require painting or sealing and the structure's hardware is made from quality stainless steel.

Even the most inexperienced DIYer can assemble this classic octagonal design as all components and moulded panels are precision cut.

With a 3.04 square metre floor space, a width and depth of 342cm and a height of 337cm, the Suncast Gazebo is ideal for entertaining, dining or relaxing with a good book. They can also be positioned to take advantage of the tranquillity and beauty of your garden, for which they were originally intended.

Suncast Gazebos, in white with a slate grey roof, are available by special order from all Bunnings stores nationally for about $4499. They require a wooden platform or concrete pad as a base.
