Verandah Builders Melbourne

Creating a verandah outdoor space is easy with our design and construction expertise. 

As Melbourne’s leading verandah builder, with more than 26 years of experience, we understand the complexities of establishing a newly built or refurbished space, and the vitality of making sure that that your new verandah blends, visually, with your existing home design. 

When you engage us as your designers and builders

We look at the opportunities afforded by your property and sympathetically hone the design to work for you – and maximise the potential of your home’s entertaining attributes.

A new verandah provides you with shelter from the elements, shade from the sun, a delightful area to entertain, and the opportunity to relax in close proximity to all of the other features and appliances in your home.  Traditionally a verandah is attached to a living or family room and within easy reach of the kitchen, but that is not always the case.


Custom Outdoor Living tailors everything to what you want and need.  Our designs are fully customised.


Verandah – An Alternative to Pergola

Large or small, your verandah needs to be functional, however.  It must cater for your needs as a weather protected area, and it should create an ambience that invites the outdoors into your home.  That being said, we look at the natural light sources, advise you on the optional placement of energy-efficient lighting, circulation fans and heating equipment.  Your verandah may currently be a small affair and your available space will dictate the permissible possibilities.  We can tailor those possibilities and, if appropriate, offer you the opportunity to explore the inclusion of fireplaces, wood stacks, outdoor kitchens, fridges and/or barbeques – all of which can be customised to suit your budget and requirements.


Who We Are

With Custom Outdoor Living, it’s not what we do, but the way that we do it that makes all of the difference.  We’re incredibly attentive to detail, and, to heighten the best quality outcomes, we will encourage you to focus on a timber framed construction to allay problems with properly joining the roofline to the expanded building area.  Architecturally, timber framing is also a more flexible and aesthetically pleasing building method.

''We are so pleased we chose a builder who could see our project through from start to finish. Design, permits and of course the build and fit out. We love our new alfresco room and use it every day. The team listened to understand our vision and it has come to life. Special shout out to the trades who stayed strong through several Covid related lock outs! Thankyou''

''Matt and the team at Custom Outdoor Living did a fantastic job of designing and building a customised double garage for us.

It has fit in really well next to the house and looks like it has always been there. Their attention to detail was excellent and they explained everything really well. They made the process from design to completion very easy for us.''
