3 Storey Queenslander

This heritage listed house was an original Queenslander which we raised 9 metres and excavated underneath.
A single storey home turned into a three storey home with all the luxury fittings including a lift, temperature controlled cellars and an edge lapping infinity pool!
A stunning masterpiece and a milestone project for the Main Layne team.

With prime position in Brisbane, we renovated this home to include a two storey extension underneath. We raised the home and carried out extensive excavation works to form the new structure. A pool was also dug and built prior to building the two new levels of the home.

The owners of this home were developers and we found that the process of the build was quite easy considering they had a sound knowledge of what to expect and this allowed the job to flow very rapidly to completion.

Renovating on a scale as large as this became a passion for Main Layne. As the obstacles that rose throughout the process presented many challenges, they also created a very high level of job satisfaction at the end.

Some challenges of this project included being on top of a hill making access a builder’s nightmare. No street parking so trades were car pooling to get to site. Co-ordinating the manufacture of custom made timber fittings to ensure the heritage character remained intact (the owners main focus) and protecting existing established trees!

Despite these challenges, the finished result was impeccable and is a project we are all very proud of.
