This project was commissioned by Ken and Ruth, owner builder’s who wanted a barn-style accommodation on their stunning property in the Brisbane hinterland. Working closely with the client to get the details, style and proportions looking just right, our in-house design team got busy designing a stunning traditional timber barn style frame. The timber frame was designed to incorporate sustainably sourced Cypress Pine internally to meet the interior design requirements and Spotted Gum hardwood externally to meet the bushfire rating of BAL 29.
The framing was completed over an 8 Week period with each section lovingly handcrafted in our Marulan yard. Over 1000 hours went into handcrafting the traditional timber joints that securely hold the massive timbers together. To achieve an open and spacious feel to the interior, massive king trusses with braces spanning over 5 metres were manufactured and prefabricated.
The completed trusses and frames were freighted to the build site in QLD. Our team erected the frame over the next 5 days installing glazing to the north and south gables. With all the hard work already completed at the yard, the process of seeing it all come together on site was hugely rewarding.
Full credit to the many skilled artisans and tradespeople that came together to create this structure.What a stunning job they did in finishing this build and turning it into a true luxury barn house.
