Flashback Friday: ESP Developments featured in QLD Home Design & Living Magazine

By | homerenovation, queenslander | 10 Comments

On this beautiful, sunny Friday, we thought it would be nice to flashback to our feature in Issue 7 of Queensland Home Design & Living Magazine.

The article, title ‘Refined Design: A Contemporary Classic’, features a recent renovation undertaken by ESP Developments that “required an extensive structural and aesthetic overhaul.”

“Originally constructed in the 1920s, the property’s weathered façade has been completely rejuvenated with an eye-catching combination of  pine chamfer board, Zincalume roofing and VJ sheeting. The front door and eaves have been painted bluein accordance with the exterior’s pre-existing colour palette. The timber-framed windows feature period-style awnings and have been used throughout the design to maintain the home’s classic look and highlight the exquisite finishes.”

So, if you’re looking to renovate or extend a classic Queenslander, or just looking to give your home a breath of new life, give ESP Developments a call, or check out our website http://www.espdevelopments.com.au/.
