The managing director of Unique Homes, Jim Taylor, has been building custom homes throughout Brisbane and South East Queensland for almost 40 years. During that time, Jim and his team have built hundreds of fabulous properties for discerning home buyers.
Unique Homes has established itself as one of the region’s most respected custom home designers, accumulating numerous industry awards and accolades over the years, in recognition of their ongoing commitment to delivering outstanding home designs. The company is also proud to have spotless record with the Queensland Building and Construction Commission.
We provide all-inclusive home design and build services for our clients. Our team can help you with every facet of your new home, including subdivision of your land, the safe removal of an existing residence (see our knockdown rebuild services) and can even help you acquire finance.
Unique Homes is and always has been proudly owned and operated by the Taylor family, who have resided in the Brisbane area for over half a century.
All houses built with Unique Homes include a 25 year structural guarantee, as well as a 12 month maintenance guarantee.
All of our home builds utilise fixed price contracts, ensuring you never pay more than the agreed upon price.
The greatest benefit of a custom home is that you are able to have a design that is tailored to suit your own personal style. Our complimentary home design and interior design services ensure that your home looks as spectacular inside as it does from the outside.
The first stage of the design of your brand new dream home begins with an introductory consultation with our managing director and design team. Here we will develop a broad understanding of your ideal home design, your personal/family requirements and discuss your budget, to establish a design brief.
During the meeting, you’ll be introduced to our extensive portfolio of award winning floor plans, which is an ideal platform with which to begin designing your own home. Sifting through the vast collection of floor plans with our design team, you’ll be able to choose one that best appeals to your style, home requirements and block of land. From here, we’ll then be able to set about customising the design to suit.
Based on the floor plan you selected in the initial consultation, a concept design is drafted by our architect. Upon completion, we discuss the concept with you and ask you to suggest any alterations that you wish to make, before we seek approval from you to proceed with the design.
Once the concept design has been approved by you, we conduct a thorough cost assessment, tallying up all the expenses attributed to your design, along with all inclusions that you have chosen to incorporate. It is at this time that you may find that some of your inclusions or floor plans may need to be modified slightly, in order to keep everything under budget. It is during this period that you will work alongside our interior designer to choose your indoor and outdoor colour schemes, lighting, furnishings and more, to create a beautiful new homestead that is uniquely you.
Once the concept drawing has been transformed into a working design and has your approval, you’ve worked alongside our interior designer to select your inclusions, you’ve chosen your desired colour schemes and it’s been established that everything falls within your budget, it is then time for you to sign the official Master Builders contract. This contact functions as a binding agreement between yourself and Unique Homes.
We handle the entire council approval process for you, ensuring all documentation pertaining to your home design is legal and in accordance with local housing regulations. During the council approval process, you’re asked to make any final changes concerning your interior and exterior colour schemes, as well as building materials. As a respected home builder for many decades, we have a well-established network of suppliers that we partner with to provide you with premium quality products from brand names you can trust.
It is during this second meeting with us that you have the chance to finalise your appliances and fittings, indoor and outdoor colour schemes and everything other element that comprises your beautiful new residence. It is at this time that you will also be introduced to our project manager, who will speak to you about the building phase, before construction commences.
The construction of your luxury Brisbane custom home is supervised by our managing director, Jim Taylor and we provide you with regular progress updates, which consist of phone calls, emails and photos. Additionally, we also schedule onsite visitations.
At the completion of your remarkable new custom home, you will be invited to the Unique Homes headquarters, whereupon you’ll take receipt of all relevant documents pertaining to your new dwelling, before being presented with the keys to your wonderful new abode.
Brisbane Unique Homes works through all projects using very well tested systems which ensure your home is built to meet or exceed all relevant specifications.
There are even some current building practices which are quite legal but we won’t use them because we don’t think they are as strong and sure as some proven but perhaps more expensive methods.
The end result is that your home is built to the exact standards as Company Director, Jim Taylor’s own houses are built.
No short cuts and that’s why we can offer an unparalleled 25 Year Structural Guarantee.
Plus a 6 month maintenance program that really makes us unique in every way. Now that’s confidence
Brisbane builder and experience at hand. So all up we design your home, build your home and guarantee your home is rock solid.
A 25 Year Guarantee is a very serious undertaking and that can only occur because our company is financially sound and because we build with precision.
The owner Jim Taylor is personally involved in every home built and that’s guaranteed too.
A wonderfully unique 25 Year Guarantee.
