Another very excited Wahlstedt Quality
Homes client decided to share their
home with Lynn, their WQH selections
The clients told Lynn they had put the
final touches to their Wahlstedt Quality
Home and wanted to share the
experience with Lynn.
WQH built the clients’ new home in
2016 with handover n September.
The photos presented here are from
the day of handover. Since then, the
clients have been working on
personalising their new home.
The design featured the clients’ own
ideas and layout, and they have certainly
ticked all the boxes of what people are
wanting to have in their new home.
It includes a suite-style master
bedroom, ensuite and walk-in robe,
designer kitchen with a butler’s
pantry, four bedrooms, two bathrooms
and a dedicated home-theatre
The house is full of designer touches
with bulkheads, various ceiling heights
including a dropped ceiling over the
kitchen for feature lighting.
A great outdoor area for entertaining
flows through from the main living area
via sliding alfresco doors at the rear of the

HEAVY rainfall and strong wind
kept emergency services busy on
December 27 and 28.
Port Broughton and Maitland
SES worked tirelessly into the
early hours of last Wednesday
with most callouts coming from
the Copper Coast.
Port Broughton SES captain
Jeff Kerley said his crew attended
about five callouts locally before
making its way to Wallaroo and
“It was mainly flooding issues
because the drains and gutters
couldn’t cope with the heavy
downpour and there were a few
trees down,” Mr Kerley said.
“There wasn’t a lot of damage,
a lot of things which could have
blown away were already blown
away during the last storm.
“We probably attended 25 to
30 callouts in the Copper Coast
area and most of that was water
damage with gutters overflowing
and coming through ceilings.”
Maitland SES captain Lyall
Schulz said he finally got to bed
at about 4am Wednesday; how-
ever, he was then involved with
clean-up for two days.
“We got our first callout at
about 10.30pm (Tuesday), Mr
“On our way to that job is
when the storm really hit and
after that we received page after
page from mainly the Kadina and
Port Hughes area; however, we
had a limited crew so weren’t able
to respond to incidents up north.
“I have probably only seen one

and a lot of these we dealt with
the next day, local sheds went
down and big doors on a hay
shed were torn off.”
Koolwurtie, said the storm flat-
tened a boat shed on her proper-
“Koolywurtie/Mount Rat is
generally a bit windier than the
rest of the area because it’s higher
but we usually get roaring west-
erly/northerly winds and the
occasional southerly,” she said.
“However, this wind came
from the east, usually our easter-
lies are quite mild and more of a
pleasant breeze than the gale it
was this time.
“The shed wasn’t huge so the
damage bill is probably only
around $15,000 to $20,000 but
the clean-up wasn’t fun with
sheets of iron across a few pad-
