Front Porch Properties is a QBCC licensed design & construction business, founded by Brisbane girl, Rachael Turner.
Rachael, a trained classical pianist, completed her Bachelor of Music in Piano at the Queensland Conservatorium in 2005.
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.
She 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 formally birthed.
She is especially passionate about classic, timeless homes & American-inspired homes. Inspiration is open drawn from the Hamptons, Cape Cod, New England, Craftsmen Homes, Modern Barnhouses & Farmhouses, Beach Houses, & Cottages. This ‘aesthetic’ forms the backbone of the Front Porch Properties brand.
Rachael, a member of Master Builders Australia, works closely with her team of tradespeople and professionals, personally overseeing each job from initial design through to completion to ensure the vision for the project comes together. Her personal vision is to make a dent in the construction industry, building beautifully unique homes and putting the customer first.
Her personal mission is to inspire others to chase their dreams, whether in the construction industry or elsewhere. She has always believed in building a life you love, not working for someone else to build theirs.
Rachael lives with her husband Simon & their dog, Benji, in South Brisbane. Above all, her top priority is to serve God and honour Him in everything she does.
