Renovating our second-hand “Queenslander” removal house has been like a cross between repairing a lovely old piece of handmade antique furniture and an archaeological dig! The house was probably built around 100 years ago, from locally sourced timber, but has been modified many times since then. Verandahs have been built in, the kitchen, bathroom and laundry were added later. When we removed the wall cladding in the bathroom we revealed old doorways and could only guess at how the room was previously arranged. Here’s an update and a review of a book about building and caring for old houses.
