Gold medal winning combination – Giaan Rooney’s dream home build with Coral Homes
Ask any professional athlete what it takes to succeed in their chosen field and chances are they will tell you it takes a combination of tenacity and an unrestrained commitment to their vision.
This very approach proved to be no different when it came time for Olympic Gold Medallist Giaan Rooney and her family to begin their search for a new home builder that could deliver on their lofty dream home aspirations.
Having already purchased a picturesque block of land, Giaan and her family knew exactly what they were after; a new home builder that not only provided uncompromising quality and unbeatable value for money, but one that also shared the same enthusiasm for their dream home vision.
“We found our block of land first and due to orientation, location and restrictions, we needed to not only find a floor plan that ticked all our boxes but a building company that could help us achieve our very particular vision” said Giaan.
It quickly became apparent that Coral Homes could bring their dream home to life, whilst also providing the peace of mind that they were dealing with one of the largest, most respected home builders in Australia.
Feeling the same trepidation as many other couples embarking on their first home building journey, Giaan and her family then began the exciting task of selecting a home design. But this wouldn’t simply be a standard home design, rather it would need to be a design that represented their unbridled vision. Coral Homes ‘can do’ attitude shone through in this aspect, and any alterations they required to the standard plan were incorporated with ease and efficiency.
“Did we really need 5 bedrooms or could we sacrifice a bedroom to make the remaining 4 larger? Could we reduce the size of the huge rumpus room to allow space for a very practical butler’s pantry off the kitchen? Yes, and yes!” said Giaan.
A modified version of one of Coral Homes’ two storey home designs proved to be the perfect solution.
As the saying goes “Some people look for a beautiful place, whilst others make a place beautiful”. This rang true in Giaan’s hands on approach to selecting her new home finishes. Giaan’s uninhibited creativity flourished and her desire to be deeply involved in this aspect of the build proved crucial to the spectacular end result.
“We certainly pushed the boundaries! I love colour, so I always knew I would never have a white on white house but I needed Coral Homes’ (myChoice Selection Showroom) experience to guide me through what colours worked together and how to combine all my ideas into a cohesive design palette” said Giaan.
The result is an absolutely stunning home that embodies the vision they set out to achieve from the outset and more importantly it is a place that Giaan and her family will proudly call home for years to come.
It is widely acknowledged within the building industry that the measure of a successful build lies within the client’s desire to build with you again, and even more so if they stay in that home for years to come. If this is a true measure then Coral Homes achieved a gold medal like performance with Giaan Rooney’s new dream home.
“We would consider building again with Coral Homes in the future, but considering how happy we are with our completed home, I can't see us going anywhere for a very long time!” said Giaan.
