This creative verandah support, made of thin strip steel, would look wonderful in the right circumstance but I’m not so sure about it being used as a verandah support post for the roof. The design would look more at home as a flyscreen for the front door.
The security screens on the front door and window add to the appreciation of the overall thought that has gone into this renovation. I confess to not being a fan of expanded metal mesh screens and this renovation only strengthens that opinion.
Verandah support improvement
This support should be replaced along with the mesh screens on the front door and window. Perhaps they could incorporate this verandah support into a new security screen for the front door. Stranger things can (and do!) happen
