Dream entertainment space ready for family fun all year round
29 April 2016
Alf Thomas of Bangor loves to entertain so it’s no surprise that when it came to creating the perfect outdoor oasis, he refused to settle on your typical timber or metal fence. After doing his due diligence and thoroughly researching all options, he now enjoys a stylish and well planned alfresco area, inviting hours of relaxation and entertainment.
In addition to creating an outdoor entertaining haven, Thomas needed his boundary wall to achieve several important factors;
- Seamlessly match the aesthetics of the newly renovated home whilst maximising the space around the pool.
- Structurally, it needed to replace an old and dilapidated retaining wall and where possible he did not want the hassle of installing footings or conduct costly excavations.
- Maintain some privacy and acoustic benefits that blocked out unwanted traffic noise from the neighbouring Bangor By-pass.
After initially talking with the experts at ModularWalls and following an onsite inspection by an expert installer from the ModularWalls Trade network, it was decided that a VogueWall would complement the recent house renovations and provide the canvas from which to create an outdoor entertainment mecca. Simply put, VogueWall offered the perfect equilibrium between cost and aesthetics.
From his initial research, Thomas knew that using a traditional material like brick or masonry would have been cost prohibitive. “Also, the volume of brick required would be too overbearing,” explains Thomas.
“I love that once the VogueWall was erected its design versatility allows you to run cables for lighting through the wall. It didn’t just meet my expectations, it blew them away,” enthuses Thomas. “No matter what type of stressful day we have out in the world, at the end of it, we come home to our resort. We had Christmas at our place. We had New Years at our place. We love to entertain and so it’s perfect,” Thomas continues.
