Most of Storybooks massive range of cottage architecture is for clients looking to build a smaller home with a budget below or around $200,000. Storybook understand all the ways to make buildings more affordable, that’s in our DNA, we are and have always been all about affordable yet beautiful / high character architecture. Our company (originally called Storybook Cottages) was started way back in 1990 just when Australia was in the grip of the worst recession since the Great Recession of 1930. Affordable housing was on almost every home buyers mind with real estate prices plummeting and bank interest rates soaring to record scary levels. Storybook was very successful then because people who were wanting to save loved our economical yet beautiful cottages. Nothing has changed nearly 30 years on.


Just look at these amazing cottage homes, single storey or two storeys, mostly only 2 or 3 bedrooms in size yet they exude the same Storybook character and beauty as their larger counterparts. Almost every beautiful Storybook design including our lower priced cottages comes with our stalwart features like verandas , entrance halls , cathedral ceilings to the main living area , indoor / outdoor covered alfrescos , functional kitchens with island benches and walk in pantries, master bedrooms for king size beds with walk-in robes and en-suite bathroom etc..
