Brilliant Brisbane home blogs – but wait, there’s more!

Amongst all of my research and meeting other like minded Brisbane bloggers, I have come across a few more blogs that are more than worthy of a share. You can take a look at the original list that I complied a while back.

Now, for an update…,

Brilliant Brisbane home blogs

If you are interested in the history of some of Brisbane’s gorgeous old homes, head on over to A House in Auchenflower , where you can read about the stories of residents past as Magnus, the author, uncovers the little known back story of some lovely, old Brisbane homes.  I did some photographs for Magnus for his article on this home in Ashgrove. and I’m really looking forward to reading about the other gems he uncovers.

Lena, from the blog Happy Little Queenslander documents the renovation of her home on Brisbane’s south side.  It’s full of pictures and some great tips and tricks to help you on your way if you are undertaking your own renovation.  Lena also shares some of the knowledge she is gaining through her studies in design and building.

This poor Queenslander had been bricked and breeze-blocked* within an inch of it’s life until the current owners came along.  Hudson’s House covers a bit of decorating, DIY, family life and the transformation of this 1930’s gem to a modern day family home.

This final blog, though it sounds unusual to say, should sadly never have had to exist. It’s about a beautiful home, built in 1874 (almost 150 years old) that was extensively damaged by a callous arsonist earlier this year. Heart Hanworth House is being written by the owner as she goes through the mentally and physically painstaking process of restoring and salvaging this grand old lady. If you’re interested in watching this home come back to life once again, I’m sure this blog will prove to be great to read.  It looks like there is always champagne on hand too, so really, what’s not to love about Hanworth House?!

If you come across any other Brisbane home or renovation blogs, please send me an email and let me know about them!

* I actually really love breeze blocks, just not on Queenslanders!
