“Dan was extremely easy to deal with, constantly referring to us for our opinion instead of just bulldozing us with his. His attention to detail and skill was just amazing.”
A Chance to Rebuild History
Originally built in the late 1890s on the banks of the Fitzroy River, this expansive 628m2 homestead relocated to Emu Park in the 1980s underwent an award-winning verandah replacement, including the construction of a new 30m2 rotunda in keeping with the era of the original homestead.
Features of the work include the use of spotted gum hardwood throughout the verandah flooring, posts, stairs and balustrade; hand-cut spires, customised brackets at the front entry, intricate carpentry in the rotunda ceiling, and a full repaint of the homestead.
