Queenslander Renovation - Birkalla St, Bulimba


Throughout Bulimba there are many heritage listed homes and homes bearing their traditional character traits. Over the years, many Bulimba homeowners have renovated extensively, yet still maintained the original charm of the building. As a result, Bulimba has become an historical pocket only a few kilometers from the CBD. 


This stunning Bulimba home on Birkalla St is no exception. Craig Rynne Constructions have completed extensive renovations to modernise this pre-1946 house whilst maintaining the integrity of the original external appearance. Craig Rynne Constructions has deliberately matched the external detailing to the existing structure seamlessly; meaning unless visitors have seen the house prior, you would never know that such large renovations took place. The home boasts a bright and fresh exterior that ties both old and new together. 


Renovated completely throughout the inside of the home. This includes a new kitchen, new bathrooms, bedrooms, lounge and dining areas. The layout of the home has also been altered to make the most of the space available. The layout was also reconfigured to distance the bedroom spaces from the living areas for further peace. 
Internally, the detailing is modern; with frameless glass showers, grated strip drains and clean lines to Kitchen benches and cabinets. However, not everything was altered. 


One of the ingenious ways that Craig Rynne Constructions maintained the original character within the home was the pressed metal feature wall within the renovated foyer. It is a subtle touch that harks back to yesteryear without being overt or overbearing.  


The freshly renovated kitchen now opens onto a large living/dining space which in turn spills out to the spacious verandah overlooking the pool. Craig Rynne Constructions created a new wide, weatherproof staircase leading from the verandah down to the backyard. 

Additionally, the renovated ground floor rumpus provides a further space for guests by creating a private spare bedroom and bathroom. This cohesive entertaining area is now ready for homeowners and guests to enjoy. 


The homeowners also contracted Craig Rynne Construction to dig out the existing garage. The garage has been dug into the sloping block to provide a secure parking space for up to 4 vehicles and a camper trailer.
