Traditional Home Styles

The Garth Chapman team are people who are passionate about creating the unique architecture that is the Queenslander and continuing the tradition. We create modern homes of detail that you will enjoy for generations. Our well-crafted timber homes have a warmth and ambience that is created by the many individual pieces of timber, every one different in some way, none perfect or built in a factory, but when they come together they produce a bigger picture. Your easy relaxed lifestyle living, outside on the shaded verandahs, will provide a life balance in today’s hectic paced world.

Garth Chapman Queenslanders have built our renowned reputation on designing and building superior, traditional style homes since 1988. We are a multi-award winner of the QLD Master Builders award for Best Heritage Home (until they discontinued the category in 2015). Our focus on excellent home designs and attention to clients’ needs ensure your new home is built to suit your personal circumstances, budget, climate and aspect of the land. The quintessential look of a Garth Chapman Traditional Queenslander is achieved by authenticity of architecture, proprietary building techniques and methods, superior standard inclusions, and attention to detail. Our homes are unrivalled and unique.

The ultimate compliment to us is the question from passers-by about the renovation taking place or where did you move that original Queenslander from? However, whilst very traditional in appearance on the outside, the internals can be styled to be as contemporary, traditional, or a classic mix as your personal taste prefers. Modern materials and premium grade paints will ensure maintenance is reduced to a minimum. Extensive use of insulation throughout the home, along with correct home orientation and design, will ensure your home performs well from an energy efficiency perspective – thus reducing ongoing energy consumption.
