We are Piet and Vickie Baxter, the husband and wife team behind Modern Rustic.
We set out with a simple vision for this company, to build inspiringly different homes,
that reflect the uniqueness of our clients.
"Piet is one of the most hard working and driven people I have ever met, He has been building here in Cairns and around Australia for the past 20 years so he’s amassed a vast knowledge and understanding of the industry! I have ideas, and then before I know it, all the heavy lifting is done and he’s realised my vision. I’m very lucky to have such a handy hubby! We returned to Cairns together to be near family and pursue our dreams doing a job we love, not to mention going camping, fishing and exploring in this amazing place we call home."
"Vickie has a scientific degree, has run a zoo, is one of a handful of women qualified in rope access and non destructive testing, has worked on oil rigs around the world, and has traveled extensively. She is strong and independent with the warmest heart and her artistic vision and concepts are unique and have been drawn from her many life experiences. She will work with you to turn your ideas into a ‘feeling’ that will flow through your home."
As a couple, we are perfect compliments to each other’s passions. Together with the skills and talents of
the contractors, engineers, interior designers, architects and draughtys that have become friends over
years of working together, we make a pretty amazing team. We are very passionate and have a ‘down to earth’
attitude which results in individual projects with refreshing design, that work for you, and
make you feel at home.
