Case Study: Custom Build at Baralaba QLD

Neil & Reiden got in contact with Westbuilt looking to build a new homestead for their property near Baralaba in central QLD. With some precise requirements including a full timber library and guest bedrooms, this home is the epitome of what is achievable with modular construction!

DESIGN

The design of this home revolves around a central 8m x 9m custom-built library with room for 100’s of books. The Client’s requirements included five bedrooms, a separate study, three bathrooms, butler’s pantry, large living area and dining room.

From an aesthetics perspective, the home needed to capture the Queenslander homestead essence to match the history and region.
