Live the Aussie Dream

It’s always been popular with the traditional Aussie BBQ. Where it was originally a much more casual affair, creating a permanent, semi-formal outdoor living room has grown in popularity.

During Melbourne’s warmer months, people are dining outside on a more regular basis. Enjoying the relaxed laid-back atmosphere that al fresco dining creates.

M.J.Harris Carpentry can help you turn your current back yard, porch or veranda into something that will become the living hub of your home. By adding an outdoor kitchen, you can stay with family and guests as you prepare a meal. Adding cafe blinds will allow you to use the space in all types of weather and with an open fire place it can be a space in your home suitable for use all year round.

Really great job guys

Luke pulled down our back pergola and rebuilt it as it was unsafe, rotted and falling down. I was surprised at how quickly it went up.

No job was too small

The final result looks great, and my first home is now my dream home. Thanks to Mike and the boys for a job well done.
