The quintessential Queenslander is of all timber construction with a corrugated iron roof. They are all high set single storey dwellings with a characteristic veranda that extends around the house to varying extents but never entirely surrounds it. In later years, many have been renovated to enclose part or all of these verandahs to create extra bedrooms. The under house area is often also enclosed to provide extra living area to these houses, which leads to the common misconception of an authentic Queensland with two storeys.onstuctions however some commercial style constructions are referred to as Queenslanders.
