The verandah became a
feature of Australian houses between 1800
and 1810. Such was the desirability of a
verandah that its presence as an essential
feature of an Australian house was
stressed in real estate advertisements
from 1800 up until the 1850s.
Although the verandah
is a very simple place, it has its own
special character and requirements.
Restoring one need be neither difficult
nor particularly expensive, provided it's
tackled in the right way.
