In a future where climate change poses increasing food challenges to Brisbane’s suburbs, the Queensland Resilient Homes Fund (RHF) stands as  one of the more proactive responses we have seen from State Government to help homeowners create some form of safety and peace of mind against future flooding.

This government initiative, now extended until 2025, offers a remarkable opportunity for homeowners to safeguard their properties against the ravages of floods. With up to $100,000 in funding available, the RHF isn’t just a grant; it’s a lifeline.

Since the inception of the RHF, our team of designers have been instrumental in delivering over 80 sets of house raise plans, a testament to our commitment and expertise in this area. We like to think that we don’t just create plans, as we aim to weave a network of support, connecting homeowners with an array of construction professionals – from QLD assessors to engineers, surveyors, builders, and certifiers. This collaborative ecosystem ensures that every step of the process, from planning to execution, is seamless and stress-free. Our strong relations with these experts are not just about facilitating processes; it’s about building trust and ensuring quality at every turn.

But why is this partnership so crucial? With our team of designers we like to think that homeowners aren’t left adrift in a sea of technicalities, instead, they’re guided, step by step, through the complexities of design and construction. And with a priority on these plans, the agonising waits that often hamper construction projects are significantly reduced. We also like to connect homeowners with experienced house raise builders who can submit competitive quotes to QRIDA. This integration of services not only simplifies the process but also ensures that the financial aspects of the project are as streamlined as the design and construction phases.

Our current track record speaks for itself. Having completed more sets of RHF plans than any other design team in Queensland (over 80 at last count), our team possesses an unrivaled understanding of what it takes to design a house raise that not only meets but exceeds expectations. Their designs aren’t just about raising houses; they’re about elevating standards.

For homeowners in Southeast Queensland, this is more than just a chance to secure funding. It’s an opportunity to enhance the safety, value, and longevity of their homes. In a region frequently challenged by floods, raising houses above flood levels isn’t just a precaution; it’s a necessity. It’s about peace of mind, knowing that your home stands resilient against the unpredictable forces of nature.

As we move forward, our partnership with the RHF is set to become even more pivotal as continue to guide homeowners through every step of the process to get their homes to s safe and secure leve. For those still contemplating the RHF, we advise you to get the ball rolling. Once you factor in time spent for plans, engineering, surveys, quotes from house raisers, builder quotes, submissions to QRIDA, approvals, builder schedules and certification, you want to allow yourself enough time to get everything completed to a high standard (obviously we are here to help with each step as much as we can).

The Queensland Resilient Homes Fund, with its generous funding, offers a vital solution to the challenges posed by flooding. We doubt we will see another grant (especially for house raising) like this again anytime soon, therefore if you have any questions about the process, costs or the grant itself, make sure you give our team a call to discuss this further.
