52 Nelson Parade
Tuross Head


This home was designed by the redoubtable Phil Rose, one of the best architects on the coast.

The build was an extremely technical one that posed many challenges and was a very rewarding one to bring to fruition.

Karnak Miallo Road Mossman

Far North Queensland

Probably the very first house that I ever built.

The client was Diane Cilento, who was the owner-builder, and she needed someone to build it for her. I answered an ad in the local Cairns paper, went up to just short of the Daintree River and started work.

Talk about remote locations and the problems of getting supplies in......anyway it was a lot of fun.

Ms. Cilento had already hired a labourer by the name of Ken Barge, who turned out to be one of the most capable men I have ever met.

It was a lot of fun while it lasted and while I didn't finish it (my lovely wife became pregnant with our first child and she refused to go through the pregnancy in that heat) we did all the hard yards of the structure and frame and left it to others to fit it out.

Believe it or not, I had never heard of Diane Cilento up till then, my wife told me she was a celebrity, married to Sean Connery and all that. It was a really nice place to live and work. Fond memories
