As acclaimed Brisbane custom builders, renowned for their innovative luxury custom homes designs, Unique Homes have established themselves as a leading figure in the designer home building market. We pride ourselves on delivering innovative, bespoke solutions to residents throughout the whole of South-East Queensland.
We create award winning home designs that are tailored to your exact needs and budget. We develop visually stunning, yet affordable, purpose built custom home designs that utilise the highest quality materials, adopt the latest in industry-approved construction methods and provide outstanding investment opportunities.
As certified master builders, it is our duty to not only perform all work according to the stringent standards outlined by the Australian building industry, but to do so in a manner that is least harmful to the environment. For this reason, we make every effort to integrate cutting-edge, sustainable building technologies, materials and practices into home we build.
Whether it’s a gorgeous waterfront property, sloping block lot, grand acreage estate or a particularly complicated building site, we can design and build the remarkable designer home you have always dreamed of.
with a project builder, the floor plans are limited and any attempts to deviate from their stock designs will incur big costs, as we’ll discuss further below. With a custom home on the other hand, you work alongside our in-house design team to build the home of your dreams. Your input influences every aspect of the end result. Which architectural home style do you prefer? Popular choices in Australia include modern, Mediterranean, Hampton, French provincial, industrial, and South American. Beyond this, you’ll have final say in every other detail that comprises your spectacular new residence, such as your colour schemes (which you’ll be assisted by our interior designer), lighting, appliances, amenities and more.
designer homes have a reputation of being costlier than their project home counterparts, but home buyers quickly discover that this is not necessarily the case. Although project homes will almost certainly carry a less expensive starting price, modifications to the regular floor plans will see the asking price rise substantially. Likewise, the optional extras are always very steep, which will once again have a big impact on the final price.
When clients realise this, they soon understand that custom homes are very reasonably priced, especially when they consider that they are getting an exclusive home design that is optimised for their lifestyle. Your budget is one of the first things we discuss with you at your initial consultation with us. From this, we give you a clear at which you can expect to have built for you at your price range. Best of all, we utilise fixed price contracts, so the price you’re quoted on the contract will never change, unless you of course decide to made further changes later on.
While most of the homes we build are at the luxury end of the market, they are all 7 star energy efficient, creating a home that is cooler in the summer, cosier in the winter and reduces power bills. Our homes incorporate an array of green technologies, such as rainwater catchment systems, grey water recycling units, while utilising only the most effective insulation and materials.
Each of our homes are sensibly designed to capture the natural breeze, while implementing energy efficient lighting and appliances that draw less power. Adding a solar power installation can further improve the home’s reliance on natural resources to generate power. All of these innovations result in a wonderful new home that is pleasant to live in and better for the environment.
At your introductory meeting with us, we discuss your ideas and ambitions for creating the ultimate custom home. It’s at this time that we encourage you to bring along all your articles of inspiration with you, such as magazine clippings, digital images and even personal sketches that offer some indication of your preferred home design and features. We’ll discuss your family and lifestyle requirements and look to focus in on every aspect – no matter how minute, that will comprise your wonderful new home.
Sometimes it’s not possible to cover every little detail of a fabulous new home design in the initial consultation, but whether it requires a single or multiple meetings, our team of skilled designers are here to assist you in making all of the biggest decisions. Only once you are totally content that we’ll look to move on to the next stage.
Inspecting the block of land with which you intend to build on is essential, as it allows us to develop an accurate understanding of its size and shape and how we can best utilise the land to build your new dream home. Aside from enabling us to determine how we should orientate your new home to make the most of the surrounding views, site inspections also warn us about any potential difficulties the block may pose.
In cases where the land may offer unique challenges, the designers will able to consult with you and discuss their proposed solutions. Regardless of the complexity of your land, our experience will ensure that your new home is every bit as magical as you envisioned it to be.
The concept design phase is always a favourite amongst our clients, as it’s during this time that they are able to see their home design come to life, thanks to the help of state of the art 3D design software. You’ll be shown a 3D elevation that provides you with a virtual tour of your new home. It is at this time that the estimated cost of your home will also be calculated and presented to you.
We handle all of the project related paperwork for you, such as the contract drawings and package. The drawings are delivered to an engineer and we set about obtaining all required council approval documents and licences for your new custom Brisbane home. We’ll organise to meet with you to hand you the contract package and clarify all paperwork, including the final cost. Once you’re satisfied with everything, you’ll be asked to sign off on the contract.
At this time, you’ll meet with our interior designer, who will provide you with expert guidance on all your indoor and outdoor choices. From the smallest to the largest household considerations, our designer will ensure that you obtain the look you’re after. Over the many years that we’ve been in operation for, we’ve managed to establish a vast network of trusted suppliers, enabling us to quickly source any household item and service you desire, from bespoke furniture to painting and everything in between. Once these decisions have been finalised, it’ll typically be time for construction to get underway.
Once your block of land has been cleared of all debris, obstructions or in the case of knock down rebuilds, old residences, the painstaking process of constructing your new commences. Throughout the build, you’ll be given regular progress updates through phone calls, emails and onsite meetings.
The handover meeting occurs onsite at your brand new residence, where you’ll receive all documentation pertaining to your wonderful new home, including 25 year structural guarantee, manual and 12 month maintenance package. During this 12 month period, simply notify us of any faults you encounter and we’ll resolve them for you, free of charge. It’s also at the handover meeting that you of course receive the keys to your wonderful new luxury Brisbane custom home.
