    Default Eave bracket?

    image.jpgOur house is a Victorian weatherboard that was altered more than 50 years ago to have a federation gable over the front verandah. they used the original Victorian eave brackets on the gable detail. as we are constructing a carport to suit the existing structure I need to get some more eave brackets, but would rather replace them with something that suits better. most of the houses in my area appear to have a very simple 1/4 round bracket, or rectangular bracket with a rounded end. Does anyone know what they are called as I cannot seem to find them under the term eave bracket.
    The picture above show what I am looking for.

    I am not sure the term "Eave Bracket" is correct for what you are after, but I am also not sure what part in the picture you are referring too.
    Can you point out in the picture the item that you are looking for, or take a closer picture of the item.

    Also was your house used for the photo on Healy's website or are you using the photo from that website as reference ?

    I'm using the photo as a reference- the part I'm looking for are the brackets that are sitting along the bottom of each horizontal piece of timber.

    OK so I believe that the term eave bracket is correct for what you are referring too.
    On Edwardian and Victorian era styles the eave brackets were a lot bigger and more detailed, there are a number of companies that manufacture reproductions:
    Melbourne Interior & Exterior Fretwork Designs | The Home of Fretworks
    Verandah Corner Brackets & Eves Brackets : R & G Timber Components Pty Ltd
    http://www.auburnwoodturning.com.au/...racket-gallery
    The overhang in the gable ends is large enough to install these eave brackets.

    The photo that you used is more in the style of a Bungalow, at which time the features were smaller and less detailed often just blocks of timber.
    You also see that the overhang is a lot smaller and you could not fit the Edwardian / Victorian style of eave bracket without increasing the size of the overhang.


    If you post up an image of your house and the actual brackets you have someone may be able to make further suggestions.
    Regards Dave.
