Storybook Home Styles


Hi, I’m Phil Malcolm the original and then sole designer of our architecture. This is where Storybook started back in 1990. Originally, we were called Storybook Cottages, we specialised in affordable traditional style weatherboard cottages. For me this type of home brings back childhood memories of ‘dogs and cats on the veranda and soup simmering on the wood stove ‘, days when the pace seemed slower and more relaxed where families enjoyed a more wholesome simple lifestyle with veggie patches out the back. Doesn’t feel like today does it. For those who want to revisit those days or want to smash the stress of a large mortgage or are in the downsizing stage of their life, choosing more basic living is appealing. Storybook do cottage architecture so well; we know how to capture charm and beauty in a smaller home and still design efficient modern interior layouts that function well. Even our smallest homes follow the trends and usually still have en-suites, island benches, pantry’s, covered alfresco's, cathedral ceilings etc. Imagine how you will feel when you first enter the front door of your finished charming Storybook dream cottage.
