There are many reasons for building a veranda: To increase living space, to create a link between the outside and inside, or just to set up a snug, quiet spot for you and your family. The major reasons for building verandas in the Salzkammergut - which mainly involve traditional construction methods and fitting harmoniously with the landscape - is that people like to have an open living space and a visually-separate dining area.
A veranda is a living room for all seasons: In the spring, you can enjoy the first warm sunbeams here; in the summer, it's the right place to relax with a glass of wine in the cooler evenings. The insulation keeps out the autumn storms, and in winter it's an inviting place to watch the snowflakes fall.
Specialists who understand the craft. The veranda is exposed to rain and sun day in day out, and only a skilled expert would know how and where to install moisture insulation, ledges and cornices, etc.
In addition to the closed veranda, there is also the archetypal open veranda. Following the "Gwandergang" (traditional walkway) of the old farmhouses of the Salzkammergut, this type of veranda is not glazed and offers a place to hide from rain during the warm summer months.
