The Queenslander Home refers to a unique style especially designed for sub tropical weather conditions. They take a lot of work to up keep, specially in refreshing the paint work.
Our sun is harsh and fades everything quickly.
The benefit of living in the house, especially the HIGH SET design is that air circulates underneath.
With ceiling fans in every room its rare to bother with turning on the air-conditioner.
This first home is ours. Work remains in placing window shutters, and a carport to sun protect our vehicles. Under the house is utilized as a workshop and garage.
The name of our Home is : Karinya which in Aboriginal means ~ Peaceful Home.
The Queenslander is the Australian way of life that continues on.
Except the Lord builds the
house, they labor in vain who build it; except the Lord keeps the city,
the watchman wakes but in vain. - Psalm 127:1

Labels: Australian Homes in Queensland.
An author since 2012 and retired Specialist Registered Nurse. I reside in sub-tropical Queensland, Australia, with my American husband Raymond and our two little dogs. Late in 2008 I began to explore and enjoy the realm of creative writing. This is something which has always been an interest yet until now,I haven't found time to indulge. God is the cornerstone of my home and heart. He is my life and my breath, for without Him I am nothing. My desire is to edify His existance in my daily walk through life. To inspire and encourage the broken hearted. And to assist in the knowledge that EVERYTHING has a reason and a purpose under the Heavens. We are reminded through our faith in Jesus that He will, "Turn our Mourning into Dancing and our Sorrow into Joy." Psalms 30:11. Having personally experienced tough times I know, there is truely no gain without pain. B.N (Aus) B.S.N (U.S.A) Bible College Graduate. Lover of People. WORK PLACE HISTORY... 1.
