Let us do the hard work for you, As qualified Ipswich and Brisbane renovation builders, we can look after the complete project from beginning to end. From building approvals, to drawings, plans and demolition, through to completions stages, we take care of you.

Building Regulations in Queensland
Do you know that you need to employ the services of a licensed renovation builder for projects in excess of $3000? For more details see the Queensland Building and Construction Commission website. As soon as the renovation cost goes over that threshold, you know you can trust Fraederich Homes to act as your licenced and certified professional builder. And that can pretty much be the cost of even just removing a wall for renovations and building improvement. We also have a good relationship with local city councils in Brisbane and Ipswich. This is important, because being familiar with them and being able to work together to reach approval for your project is one of the first steps. We aim to achieve an attractive and sympathetic outcome for our beautiful Queenslander homes, with the agreement and backup of Council planning and permissions.
One of the most important places to modernise your home is in the kitchen. Whilst a little character and timber work may look attractive at the façade of your home, those old fashioned kitchens and appliances are not a sales feature!
The kitchen is the heart of every home, and a modern, clean and functional kitchen will enhance the look and feel of your home. But when it comes to old style houses, no two kitchens are the same. And that makes it difficult to get a realistic quote from the kitchen renovation specialists. They are mainly interested in making all kitchens look the same, and that is okay in modern houses. But when you love the character and unique elements of an old Queenslander, then you may want to retain that character.
This is where Fraederich Homes can provide a sympathetic renovation building design that offers the elements you really need, whilst fitting in with the character that you love. Rico’s carpentry work is second to none, so you can be sure of an excellent finish.
Not only is the kitchen important, but bathroom renovations are also important. What about a second bathroom? An ensuite? If you are adding bedrooms to your home renovation, we recommend that you consider an extra bathroom for that larger family. Even if you don’t need it right away, a larger family will almost always need more than one bathroom. Additional bathrooms and rooms, especially if they can be fitted under the main roof, will often add considerable resale value to a property.
More living space
Without a doubt, the requirements of modern living include a spacious living area. The trouble is, many character houses were not built with open plan living spaces. Fortunately, we are expert renovation builders Ipswich Qld with the experience to find and create wonderful living spaces in your older style home. We can add exterior decks and verandas, wall removal renovations, raise and build in under renovations, amongst others. All this without compromising the structural integrity of your home.
Increase the capital value of your home
The purpose for doing any of this is usually to improve your home and to improve your standard of living. But here at Fraederich Homes, we know there is more to it than that. We take care to ensure that we can produce a renovation that is sympathetic to the building. Keeping within your budget is also critical as is guarding against the potential to over-capitalise.
In other words, we like to add value to your property. If our building renovations additionally result in a significant increase in the capital value of the property, that means we have done our job as we want to.
Fraederich Homes takes pride in managing all aspects of your building renovations, to give you a truly stress free renovation experience.
