Queenslanders pre-built 1946 are protected by the Brisbane City Plan 2014. If your Queenslander is a part of this category, with an overlay of the Residential Character Code, this does mean that approval is required for most changes, and must be approved by the Council. In past jobs, we have dealt with these numerous times and would be happy to assist you every step of the way process, including the planning approval. With this experience, we understand how to meet our client’s requirements and the council requirements as well.
Raising a house can practically double your space in only a matter of weeks with a very stress-free process if you have skilled professionals on board. It is an exciting option to pursue and allows you to personalize your own home and dramatically increase the future prospect for buyers or give you a beautiful family home.
Enhance Household Safety Through House Raising
House raise is also a way to ensure the households are all in safe in the upcoming flooding season. By installing new legs to your home, it lifts away from the group and reduces possible damage from any flood. Affordable Building Services recommend all Queenslanders be raised to prevent and minimise the damage caused by the flood and protect your beloved family members.
