About Us

Fraederich Homes offers quality home building and house renovation services in Brisbane and Ipswich.  We are Brisbane and Ipswich home builders with skills grounded in German engineering.  Our builds are styled for the Australian lifestyle, landscape and climate.

Offering innovative builds, sensitive renovations and creative house extensions to Brisbane homeowners, we focus on helping you make the most of your home.  We are Brisbane and Ipswich home builders who are technically skilled, with years of building experience under our belts.  Importantly, we work closely with our customers on careful planning and creative design. We work to ensure we build within your budget.  Furthermore, we work to identify and overcome potential problems before the work even begins.

Your Home, Built by a Master Craftsman at a Budget You Can Afford

Enrico (Rico) Fraederich is a master carpenter who spent his apprenticeship restoring ancient churches in Germany.  Here he was building ornate staircases and renovating beautiful bell towers.  Additional experience also means he mastered his art working on up-to-the-minute prefabricated homes.  Since moving to Australia in 2005, Rico has applied his well-honed skills and love of the carpenter’s art to building, restoring and extending houses in the Brisbane area.  You won’t find any Brisbane and Ipswich home builders with such a polished pedigree!

Now an extensively experienced and licensed builder in Australia, Rico’s reputation has spread from one happy customer to the next as he plans and builds projects with their needs and budget in mind.

Enjoy The Benefits of Hands-on Home Builders

Brisbane homeowners have benefited from Rico’s unique insights and European expertise.  Now Ipswich home builders, Fraederich Homes has skilfully adapted his styles to the Australian lifestyle and climate to give customers homes they can truly enjoy.

Unusually for a Brisbane builder, Rico is involved in your project right from the planning stage.  In the early stages he draws on his experience of custom-built prefabricated houses to design a home that’s suited to your lifestyle without breaking the bank. Working with a team of experienced tradesmen, Rico also does much of the work himself.  This means offering you a level of consistency, attention to detail and responsibility that larger building firms aren’t able to provide.

And, Yes! Rico is unique in that he is one of few new home builders in Brisbane who has hand built his own family home, nestled beautifully on the gentle hillside in Karana Downs, surrounded by the Australian Bush.  Notably, it is completed, along with landscaping.

Saving You Money Now and in The Future

No building budget ends when the builders go home.  As energy costs continue to rise, Fraederich Homes provide practical suggestions to help reduce overheads long after your build is complete. We call on our unique combination of traditional craftsmanship and cutting-edge German construction to design homes that are more comfortable to live in while reducing energy costs in the longer term.

Having successfully completed a high number of builds, extensions and house renovations in Brisbane, we also work hard to protect your home from the harsh Australian sun. As well as taking care over vulnerable details, we offer advice and suggestions to reduce costly maintenance after our work is complete.
