House Raising & Moving Brisbane

On face value it may not appear to be a common choice these days, yet house raising and moving offers an exciting – and often practical – way to achieve your house dreams and create your one-of-a-kind home.

Augusta Homes is your trusted building team to help organise and oversee the entire process from initial house removal or raising, to the final settling and cosmetic steps.

Most Common Types of House Raising & Moving

  • Post war homes
  • Old homes on big blocks
  • Some heritage listed properties (although there may be restrictions or limitations on façade changes)
  • Demolition Control – where you cannot knock down certain parts of houses, or where you’re required to retain the historical significance of the street or suburb (i.e. Federation Style in Murrumba Downs/Castle Hill).

Note: Old Queenslanders/post war homes are common weatherboard or asbestos.

We are the site supervisor only, organising and collaborating each stage to ensure the process is smooth from start to finish.
