Meet Rachael

After operating a successful music school for 10 years, she decided to take the big leap and chase her dreams, diving into the world of construction & design; a passion she has had since she was a little girl. Rachael started in the industry by flipping houses, bringing derelict homes back to life, but this quickly evolved into building homes for others and it was at this stage that Front Porch Properties was birthed.

    • Fireplace BEFORE & AFTER! Scroll left to see the original. Fireplace stayed. We just got rid of the daggy angles & tiled over the brickwork 👌 easy! 📸Pro photos by @claresophia #fireplace #hextile #fireplace #renovation #designinspo #brisbanehome
    • BEFORE & AFTER! Rental property Reno in Mitchelton. We replaced the daggy steel balustrading with some cool custom timber balustrading, stenciled over the concrete front porch & gave the old lady a new colour scheme. 🏡 A few straightforward changes can make a huge difference to street appeal. (For more info on this project, watch my ‘how to renovate a rental property’ video on YouTube. Link in bio.) #brisbanerenovation #beforeandafter #whitebalustrade #bluedoor #stencilledporch
    • Working on a Sunday ! Doesn’t happen too often thankfully. 👍 Anyway, you can’t actually see clearly in this photo how nice the olive-bronze-gunmetal handles & knobs are, but have a guess where I got them from?! #kitchen #kitchenreno #shaker .

    • 🤔🤔 hey, true!
    • BEFORE & AFTER! In my latest YouTube vid I mention my first flip which started my career in construction. For those who have asked what it was, here it is! A 12-week small-ish structural reno near the city. This was almost 5 years ago! #brisbanebuilder #brisbanerenovation #beforeandafter #brisbanehome
    • Very proud & grateful to @tafequeenslandskillstech @tafe_queensland_rto_0275 for writing & publishing this article & for their ongoing support & encouragement. 
Changing careers from musician to builder is probably the hardest thing I have ever done, with many moments of opposition & self-doubt throughout the years, but is also one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. (Ps. I’ve just uploaded a new YouTube video which talks about my career change & my experience with Tafe. Link in bio)
    • Loving this wallpaper my client picked for their bedroom 😍 it’s stick-on wallpaper (not like normal wallpaper which you add glue to) so the hardest part was convincing somebody to do the job. In the end I found a wallpaper guy, & didn’t tell him it was stick-on until he arrived & had set up... so I basically manipulated him into doing it 😶🤭🤷‍♀️😅 In the end he was very proud of his work though! 🙌🏻Top bloke! Has anyone else used this kind of wallpaper?? 🤔 #wallpaper #brisbanerenovation #modernclassic #coastal #coastalfarmhouse #shaker #timberwindows #doublehungwindows
    • SO PROUD!! We have just completed our training down in Sydney & are now officially part of the @samaritanspurse DART (Disaster Assistance Response Team)... which basically means that when disaster (war, terrorism, natural disaster, famine or poverty) strikes, we are on the team to be deployed for rapid response. (Short term stints generally of 2-4weeks at a time)  International mission is something the 3 of us are each passionate about & Im so stoked to be able to do this with my husband, Simon, & one of my best mates, Hannah. The biggest struggle will be for us to fit this in around our jobs, but we are thrilled to be part of such an incredible organisation. #spdart #samaritanspurse #ngo #internationalrelief
