They were able to implement everything we asked for with ease and efficiency, and no task was ever too difficult. Everyone involved in the design and construction of the home went above and beyond to create a fabulous new residence, and I'm eternally grateful for all the hours of hard work that went into fine-tuning every aspect of it. Jim Taylor and his team were an absolute pleasure to deal with throughout the entire build. Our thanks extend to Jim and everyone else involved in the creation of our wonderful new homestead".

- Jack Patrick

"My wife and I recently had a custom home built here on the Gold Coast by Jim Taylor and his team at Unique Built. From the initial site inspection through to the final completion of the new residence, we found everyone to be very polite and professional to deal with, making the whole experience that much more enjoyable. The end result is nothing short of spectacular, and we wholeheartedly recommend them to everyone. We're looking to get another investment property built sometime later this year and will definitely be in touch with Jim and the team again for this project as well. Thanks again".

- Jeffrey O'Shea

"Our new home is an absolute masterpiece. No stuff-ups or unforeseen delays. As a self-confessed perfectionist myself and someone who is very self-critical and hard to please. I was taken aback by the remarkable workmanship and pristine build quality of our new residence. The advice care and communication we received throughout the entire build has been exceptional. Our utmost gratitude and thanks to Jim and the rest of the team at Unique Built".

"Now in my 60's my husband and I needed a house on one level but we had a sloping block to build on.

We'll be here until we are carried out thank you so much to Jim and the team we love our new house".

9. What are custom homes?

As the term suggests, custom homes are personalised residences designed according to a family’s lifestyle and preferences. Custom home builders Brisbane will help you design and construct a magnificent custom residence for you in your preferred location and surroundings. 

A custom home uses a “one-off” plan that satisfies the needs and preferences of each family member. Since a contractor constructs your residence according to your specific preferences, a custom home offers the utmost comfort and luxury for you and your family.

Families living in custom homes Brisbane allows them to fully utilise the land they own. If you are thinking about building a custom home but haven’t purchased the land yet, it’s best to reach out to a custom home builder in advance.

That way, they will explain all the potential constraints of the area. This, in turn, will prevent long-term disappointment should these constraints prevent you from executing your plans for your custom home. 

Professional builders help clients design and construct their custom-built homes Brisbane so they will feel satisfied down the track.

10. What does a custom home builder do?

Custom home builders design and construct unique and personalised residences for their customers. They guide their clients through the custom home design and construction process:

  1. Design brief: Custom home builders and their design team meet with the clients to conceptualise a design brief that breaks down the concept for the custom home. This initial meeting is crucial because the builder will guide the client in exhausting all the possible features and enhancements for the custom design home Brisbane. Completing this all-important first step will ensure the client’s long-term satisfaction. 
  2. Final home design: Once the custom home builder and client finish the initial design sketches, the builder will develop them into a final custom home design that includes floor plan and elevations. The designer will collaborate with the construction crew during this phase. They will make sure the custom-built home Brisbane fits the client’s budget. At Unique Built, we ensure our clients receive the ultimate custom homes Brisbane for their budget.
  3. Client feedback: The custom home builder will present the final design to the client for feedback. Clients can share thoughts about possible modifications for their custom-built homes Brisbane during this stage. 
  4. Construction: Building of your custom home will commence once you and your builder agree on its final design. Clients will also meet with their interior design team during the construction phase so they can share their preferences for fittings, finishes, and colours of their custom home design.
  5. Completion: Your custom home builders Brisbane will give you the keys to your brand-new house upon completion. You and your family are now ready to settle into your custom home.

11. Why build a custom home?

Building a custom home doesn’t necessarily mean living in a lavish and luxurious mansion. Rather, true luxury means having all your necessities and living your chosen lifestyle. 

Custom design homes Brisbane boast features that are a perfect fit for your family’s activities, hobbies, comfort, preferences, and lifestyle. Your custom home allows you to enjoy features such as a sundeck roof, spacious lawn, or swimming pool unique to you and your family. 

Not only that, but custom homes also allow house owners to prepare for the future. For instance, you can request your custom home builders Brisbane to include energy-efficient, home automation, and house security features that meet your family’s needs.

12. What are the essentials when constructing a custom home?

Here are the factors clients must consider when building their Brisbane custom home design.

Land constraints

Building a custom home means your design and floor plan complement your preferred location.

Do you prefer a single-storey, two-storey, or three-storey home? Blocks with slopes can sometimes result in sloping block home designs (split-level home designs) that highlight the blocks’ natural features.

With that in mind, two-storey custom homes typically maximise most blocks of land. However, if a single-storey house is more up your alley, that’s fine as well.

Your custom home builders in Brisbane will work with you to overcome possible land constraints down the track. It’s imperative you establish clear communication on how your house design will complement your location and follow council regulations.


Unforeseen expenses and variables are a major headache for many clients. Planning ahead and staying within your budget helps avert any financial-related crisis.

Your custom home builders in Brisbane will typically advise you to set aside 20 percent of your budget for these unforeseen expenses. This contingency plan will give you peace of mind and ensure the construction process goes smoothly.   

Material quality

Using substandard materials for your custom home is a recipe for disaster. Durable and robust materials that stand the test of time will let you and your family enjoy the comforts of home for many years. 

Choose a custom home builder Brisbane who offers high-quality inclusions without any hidden costs. These materials should withstand the elements, wear and tear, and deterioration better than similar substandard products. 

Timetable projection

Collaborating with an architect and builder for Brisbane custom home designs can be a painstaking and arduous process. Timetables differ because of pending council approval, client considerations, and on-site conditions. 

Contractors usually take 12 to 15 months to finish building custom homes. However, other factors including demolition and looking for suitable property may stretch that timetable a bit longer. On that note, we recommend our clients to leave their custom-built homes Brisbane vacant for 18 months to prevent any hassles.

Selecting the right builder

Constructing a custom home is a major life decision that will affect your family’s quality of life for many years. Don’t take this decision lightly – it all starts with choosing the right builder for your custom design homes Brisbane. 

Do your research accordingly. Scour the internet for custom home builders who have excellent track records and reputations. Check their official websites and social media pages for feedback from their clients. If you have trusted friends who have custom homes in Brisbane, ask them for feedback on their contractors as well.

13. What’s the difference between designing a custom home with an architect and a builder?

Your architect and builder will work in tandem to make your dream custom home a reality. The former will design your residence while the latter will construct it. They must make sure the design will maximise your target property and fit your budget.
