New Stanthorpe launched at Queensland event
Spaciousness and practicality... all amenities under a single roof
Well over a hundred people attended the recent launch of Paal’s latest design, the Stanthorpe, which has been built as a display home at our visitor centre in Caboolture.
Queensland housing consultant Phillip Longhurst and his associate Mauree Grace were pleased to guide visitors through the design’s innovative features. “The Stanthorpe has an attached double-garage that leads straight into the kitchen and family area, as well as a covered alfresco for barbecues and outdoor living,” Phillip said.
“The home raises the bar for contemporary living. It includes Fisher & Paykel appliances, a rail-mounted rain shower in the en-suite, and the latest bathroom fittings that include a free-standing bath.”
The four bedroom home also includes a separate rumpus room, two storage rooms and an innovative computer room with half-height walls that integrate it into the overall layout.
“The result is an ideal home for a rural block where stylish, comfortable, well-planned living is a priority.”
Many people travelled long distances to be present at the celebration. Special guests included Paal owner-builders Kevin Lee and Darryl Adams.

Darryl had built a Camden design for his family on their fifth-generation 10,000 acre cattle station in Queensland. He shared his experience with guests on everything from framing his house to rendering the PowerPanel cladding.
Kevin Lee is in the process of single-handedly constructing Paal’s large Richmond design on his property outside Brisbane and was similarly engaged in providing valuable tips and advice.
Paal’s general manager Eddy Nobis, operations manager John Noye, and designer Philip Weymouth were also on hand to discuss the building process and provide support.
Also among the guests was building certifier and fire consultant Tony Jaques, who offered his professional knowledge about the regulatory aspects of owner-building.
The floorplan for the Stanthorpe can be inspected on the Paal webpage.

Attendees remarked on the luxuriousness of the interior
Paal's colonial country look is favoured
Paal's traditional country style of home has again been chosen in preference to a contemporary urban design or an architect-drawn residence.
Leon and Claire Pholi of Murrumbateman, near Canberra, own two acres on the edge of the village. They decided a project home just wouldn't look right for them and their three young children.
