"With decades of experience under their belt, we knew Coral Homes had the ability to deliver the quality of home we were after"

Many people dream of building their own home, with a house designed for their lifestyle and location, and we were lucky enough to do just that over the last 12 months with Coral Homes.

We found our block of land first and due to orientation, location and restrictions 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.

​We worked closely with the Coral Homes team at every stage of our build, from altering blueprints, to questioning form and function, to design and colour schemes to deliver us a house that is very much a home that we love living in.

As first time builders, we very much knew what we wanted the end result to look and feel like, but we had very little knowledge of how we were actually going to get there, so Coral Homes walked us through the whole process with experience and expertise.

While we had an end vision, we enjoyed being able to actually walk through the Coral Homes display homes to get a better idea of room scale, finishes & fixtures and design, which helped us make decisions before the build even commenced. 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 butlers pantry off the kitchen? Yes, and yes!

With decades of experience under their belt, we knew Coral Homes had the ability to deliver the quality of home we were after, and to make sure that all the necessary approvals were taken care of along the way, but what we are really grateful for is that every question we had about a possible change or process was met with a ‘no problem’ attitude or a brain storming session to reach a solution we were happy with. And the little tweaks to the original design we did make has certainly enhanced our lives as we feel we have created a house that truly represents us, the only problem is we don’t ever want to leave!

I know that Coral Homes deals with excited home builders every day but we were so excited we could probably be considered ‘too hands on’ at times, and had to learn to trust the process. But, by being so involved and interested in every little detail allowed us to make quick decisions with the supervisors and in-house trades if something unexpected showed up. The fact that our opinion was not only considered but prioritised made us feel like this was truly our house and is the main reason that 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!’
