Home designs from the past online
The Queensland bungalow style arrived in Australia around the time of the 1914 -18 Great War and, aside from the occasional earlier example; our bungalow style belongs to the between-Wars period, this publication will inform homeowners about characteristic features of the interior and exterior detail of original homes. The State Library of Queensland has recently digitised a series of publications now available online.
There are other designs created by builders, architects and the Queensland Housing Commission, which illustrates a variety of drawing and floor plans of house designs, which include post-war homes, and also housing that was available through the Queensland Housing Commission’s Home Purchasing Scheme. Take a nostalgic look back to the past and see the cost of building a home in the 1930’s and 1950’s.
