Picture this wide-fronted home settled in the shade of some old trees. Now you start to get the feeling loved by those lucky families who live in one of our Carpentarias. It truly encapsulates the essence of the Queenslander. It perfectly features one of the most important design criteria promoted by Garth Chapman, after his years spent studying Queenslanders – the effect you get when you walk in the front door and the home opens up all the way to the rear verandah. This feature creates a surprising feeling of space in a moderately sized home.
