Alterations and Additions to a Queenslander home

Streetscape Enhancements

The proposed enclosure of the verandah will be visible from the street. In order to maintain street appeal it is important the verandah wraps around the corner and suitable windows are incorporated.

Existing House First floor changes

The most important initial changes are to create a new main bathroom accessible from the inside of the house. A new hallway can be established through the front bedroom on the south-west corner of the home. In addition to the main area of interest, the also were after a new walk in robe with at least 7.5m of double hanging , this area was to be located where the current study is located. A study nook is to be located adjacent the steps to the ground floor. We will also look for options in relation to the stair and the study, given the alteration needed to this stair in any case due to the increased floor height needed in the dining room.

The concept for the kitchen is to utilise all the space currently occupied by the bathroom and the kitchen plus approximately a 1m extension maybe needed out onto the deck. The kitchen is to include large pantry, 900mm wide upright, large appliance cupboard a large island bench at least 3m long. Windows are to be located on the north-west corner of the kitchen to capture the city views. The kitchen is to have a French provincial styling with marble on the island bench.

Further details:

  1. A robe is to be established in the front bedroom.
  2. The bathroom is to include screened off WC, and a bath/ shower.
  3. The space on the verandah between the new kitchen and the bathroom will be enclosed and become part of the middle bedroom currently used as the utility space.
  4. Part of the room area currently used as the middle bedroom closest to the living area will become a utility space or butleries pantry subject to the final preference.
  5. We recommended the incorporation of a linen cupboard off the part hall created into the middle bedroom.
  6. The kitchen will be connected to the large deck via some large bi-folding or stacker doors.
