Could you please tell me the depth of your overhang outside kitchen - Hi Capital Builders, every time I come across your South Coogee Home I just sigh with complete satisfaction! I am currently having a small debate with husband about the depth of an overhang that will be outside a new dinning room (next to Kitchen) - similar to what you have shown here but with no second story - currently its planned to be about 3 m x 5.5 m overhanging area with essentially a wall of glass windows and bi folds (standard wall height + 4-5'), I am worried it will look too heavy, be too dark (like a cave), and as it sits approx 4-5' above the current roof line I am worry we might create a Service station effect (it was to be double this height but home is 90's contemporary and I thought it maybe too much of a contrast? My husband wants the windows to be sheltered from the rain, I too do want the dog to have shelter, . . . but originally I was keen to have the area very light and airy with some use of thin slatted wood coming off fairly standard facia, no more than approx 1.5 m Thank you for your time.

Thanks for your comments on the house - we love it! The overhang we have is about 1.6m which works out perfectly to still be able to open the bi-fold doors on a rainy day, although if you want to furnish it at all you will definitely need it larger. The overhangs do look great and really extend your indoor outdoor living - good luck with your project!

Entire house, especially timber floors (oak of some sort?), outdoor areas and use of warm lighting in such a modern house.
