Storybook has always been popular in the country areas where traditionally weatherboard construction was more prevalent, in the towns and on the farms. On town blocks our country cottages shine and mingle well with the original homes surrounding the town centre. Of course, on the farm plenty of our clients still dream of traditional homestead living, entertaining on the verandas and enjoying the views. The new energy rating requirements that favour the capture of the sun to living areas means that the ‘veranda all the way around the house ‘is outdated and disappearing in all but the hottest parts of country Australia. That’s why you will see in our country designs attention to ensure a balance of sun and verandas, energy efficient but still able to maintain a fantastic and individual homestead look that has striking presence. Our wide set country homes are simply beautiful.
