As we are all now well aware, Brisbane is a flood prone city. In years gone by, a significant number of homes in Queensland were build on stilts or rather stumps. There were many reasons for this.
Ventilation was allowed to flow under the house and up into the living area
Homes could be built in hilly areas where flat blocks were not possible
Over the last couple of years fewer homes have been build using stilts or stumps and many existing homes have been renovated and built-in underneath.
As a result of this trend fewer builders in Brisbane have practical experience designing and building quality, desirable homes on stilts.
In the wake of the Brisbane floods of 2011, council regulations will demand that homes in flood prone areas be raised so as to avoid the devasting flood damage we witnessed recently. For the home buyer, this will mean finding a builder who is able to carry out the tasks.
