Welcome to Urban Abode.

The end of 2018 saw lots of changes to the Driscoll Carvey team. Tony celebrated his 70th birthday and also sold his house in Cairns to move to the Sunshine Coast hinterland to spend more time doing the things he enjoys such as gardening and restoring furniture. Though I am sure he'll never walk away from the drawing board completely. Katrina also came back part time from maternity leave and Carly left us to go on maternity leave.
Another instigator of the business name change is that I am now a Mackee, so you'll be slowly seeing the transition from Carvey to Mackee. I recently secretly eloped in Iceland (can highly recommend both the elopment and Iceland!), here are some photos from the day.
I see this as a perfect time to re-brand and refresh; time for a new name, new logo, new website and this Blog, which I will hopefully make time to update regularly.
So for now the design team consists of myself and Katrina, who is just about to obtain her Low Rise Building Design Licence. We both love working on both new houses and renovations and have diverse interests in different styles of design, depending on your needs or wishes.
Our aim this year is to keep you more updated with photos of projects both as they are happening and once they are completed, so please keep up to date with us on Facebook & Instagram. Let us know what you want to see more of, we'd love to hear from you!
