Front Porch Properties is a QBCC licensed design & construction business, founded by Brisbane girl, Rachael Turner.
Rachael, a multi-award winning licenced Master Builder, has been taking the Brisbane building scene by storm and trail-blazing her way to the top of the construction industry since she first started flipping houses
Unbelievably, 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 is dog-mum to Benji and Billie, and when not building or renovating, you will find her enjoying the slow and simple things in life. Getting out in nature with the dogs, finding old furniture and treasures, rainy days inside listening to podcasts, or fish and chips by the water. Above all, her top priority is to love God and honour Him in everything she does.
