This unique project was designed and built for our client Ben and his young family. What made this project particularly special is that the timber used was sourced and milled locally by Ben through his arborist business.
The clients on this project contacted us after seeing one of our projects in a nearby village. They fell in love with the timber, joinery and craftsmanship and were set on incorporating something similar into their proposed new gallery. We introduced the clients and their builder Preston and Sons, to one of our preferred building designers Longhouse Homes.
When our client decided to build a new family home on their sugar cane plantation in Mackay in northern Queensland they knew they needed something that would stand up to the elements. The building would need to be strong enough to withstand cyclones, termites the size of small cats and the monsoonal rains that hit each wet season.
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.
