There are also three levels of outdoor decks — all with a spectacular view of the city.

“I’ve built many homes where the pressure is on and every decision falls on my shoulders, but knowing this house was going to be our family home for the next 10 years made it all that much harder,” he said.
“I now have a lot more patience for our loyal clients!”

Combining their carpentry and quantity surveying skills, Rob, 28, and Andrew, 31, have fast gained recognition under the Graya Construction banner for rebuilding some of the worst homes in Brisbane’s best streets and reselling them for a tidy profit.
They’ve built homes for star clients such as Broncos’ skipper Darius Boyd, Channel 9 news presenter Alison Ariotti and Queensland Reds player Quade Cooper and his model girlfriend, Laura Dundovic.
And they are in the process of building a family home in Paddington for Wallabies great Stephen Moore.
