I look at this verandah support and imagine all the wonderful possibilities the owners have missed out on by doing what they have done. Two pieces of 50mm water pipe welded to some flat steel bar will certainly makes a strong verandah support roof but it does very little for the look of the house. They were perhaps trying to make the house look modern? At least they didn’t leave the verandah support pipes with a galvanised finish.

It really needs something in keeping with the style of the house. Iron lacework would add lots of charm to the house. Unfortunately the expanded metal mesh security screens on the window and door add very little character to the house and they should really be replaced as well with some simple custom Decoworks security grilles.
