Australian homes throughout history have had a distinctive look to them that we can look back at fondly. These homes shown here are some classic Australian heritage style designs that really stand out as individual with lots of character and grace.
While new homes often have that 'sameness' about them in many new estates, building to the old style and using heritage features in your home is still possible.
New homes and renovation of older homes can be done in the style of our old Australian heritage houses and at Building Works Australia we love doing this kind of new building and renovation project.
