Part of Kevin Leyshon Papers
The series contains documents and architectural drawings relating to Kevin and Betty Leyshon's house at Hunt Street, Burpengary designed by Noel Robinson (as part of 'Noel Robinson + ptnrs' and later as 'Noël Robinson Built Environments Pty Ltd). There is a file with correspondence with the Caboolture Shire Council, financial information, contracts, design notes, and photocopies of plans. There are also 2 spiralbound copies of the specifications, with divergent handwritten notes and marks on each, and a prospectus for ‘Noel Robinson Built Environments Pty Ltd’, dated post 1981. Of the architectural drawings, six plans are for the original build of the house at Hunt Street: Job no. 1105 'Leyshon House Burpengary’: ‘Plans elevations’, drawing no. 1, Aug 1974; ‘Section details', drawing no. 2, Aug 1974; ‘Details kitchen utility’, drawing no. 3; ’Details bathroom’, drawing no. 4; ‘Dormitory details', drawing no. 5, Mar 1975; ‘Storage shed and chicken coop’, drawing no. 6, May 76. There are two architectural drawings for job no. 1229, ‘House extensions’: ‘Schematic’ dated Feb 1978, drawing no. 1; and “Working drawings’, drawing no. 2, Mar 78. Four of the architectural drawings are for extensions, designed by Noel Robinson Built Environments, for K.R. & B.A. Leyshon, 'House extensions', no job or drawing numbers, dated Dec 1984 to Jun 1985. Two different sets of plans for the billiard room seem to have been drawn up, one portrayed as a curved room on the end of the existing house, one as a free-standing geodesic dome.
There are six plans in A3 size, with no date or job number, titled ‘Leyshon House Burpengary’: ‘Site plan’, drawing no. 001; ‘Existing ground floor plan’, drawing no. 002; ‘Tiling and paving layout’, drawing no. 003; ‘New ground floor plan’, drawing no. 010; ‘First floor plan’, drawing no. 011; ‘Kitchen plan and sections’, drawing no. 012; ‘Kitchen sections’, drawing no. 013.
There are two photocopies of plans for the Leyshon House by James Architects, no dates, which appears to be interior design improvements for the house. Unsure if this work was done. There is no related correspondence.
