Home Renovation in Northgate, Brisbane

Our design and construct service was engaged by the owners of this lovely old Queenslander style home in Northgate in Brisbane. This home was in need of some structural and non-structural repairs, and a major under house renovation to construct a large home office/edit suite for the owners. The ‘home office’ also needed a bedroom, fully functional kitchenette, and full size bathroom complete with semi-frameless showerscreen, toilet and basin/vanity to diversify its use as a potential granny flat, guest unit, or AirB&B. Under the house was enclosed to provide this necessary space.
Extensive external works were also undertaken to construct more than 40 metres of 2 metre high timber fencing, involving earthworks, new retaining walls, and a beautiful, bespoke Lych gate entrance. A completely new heritage style hardwood staircase was constructed to the front entrance of the house, with handcrafted bespoke hardwood feature panels to match the existing feature panels on the verandahs of this early 1900s era house.
The beautiful bespoke Lych gate crafted by Julian and his team.

The new traditional/heritage style staircase was constructed to match the existing style of the verandah railings and feature panels. To do this, no off the shelf product was available, so Julian crafted the bespoke feature panels on the staircase from hardwood by hand. Nothing beats old school carpentry skills for this kind of project!
