AusTimber are constantly being called to supply timber for heritage restoration projects.
Reproducing components for “faithful” heritage renovation and restoration projects requires a high degree of skill only gained from a great deal of experience.
AusTimber has its beginnings in this specialist field.
Projects such as:
The Governor’s Dairy at Parramatta Park, the earliest surviving workers’ cottage in Australia (circa 1795)
The Bella Vista Farm established in the early 1800’s was the first home to Merino sheep in Australia (by the Macarthur family) with the original homestead’s Ironbark timber flooring and ironbark cobbled floor in the stables
The fire gutted Quarantine Station at Sydney’s North Head, dating back to the early 1830’s. Two of the original buildings were destroyed by fire. Restoration was completed in 2007 and the complex is now home to the “Q-Station” Hotel.
Female Orphan School at Parramatta which is now being re-utilised as part of the University of Western Sydney. With the foundation stone laid in 1813 by Governor Lachlan Macquarie, the Female Orphan School is recognised as being the oldest three-storey brick building in Australia, and the nation’s oldest public building.
The Eternity Playhouse at Darlingurst and Glebe Town Hall (both built during the 1880’s).
