There is nothing more grand than an authentic Queenslander & Colonial home and full Home Restoration provided by Brisbane Builders

Original Queenslander & Colonial home restoration are the stuff of legend and their distinctive charm and design reflects our sub tropical lifestyle.

Along with the splendour these homes provide, be it the sprawling nature of their balconies to the ornate ceilings and period features, renovating or restoring a Queenslander, a workers cottage or a colonial house needs to be done sympathetically and with care.


So do you know what kind of Colonial you have? – let’s see










The Queensland Colonial Home - a roof over our heads

Colonial style homes have become increasingly popular in the Queensland region. Traditionally, colonial styled houses are 1 or 2 storeys with a large veranda that wraps around the outside. Many of the designs in Australia now use corrugated iron as roofing material and are prized for their large, spacious rooms and natural ventilation, which makes them perfectly suited to the Australian conditions. To see some of our previous work with colonial homes, please visit our home restoration Projects page.
