Karen and Jeremy had been living in a beautiful old «timber and tin» Queenslander home with their family prior to this house. They were quite in love with the space, but after taking a hard look at just how much time it was taking to maintain the home — and how much renovating was still needed — they made the tough decision to move to a nearby suburb to minimize their debt. They were able to build a modern, low-maintenance home that fits their family’s lifestyle much better.
