10 Signs It’s Time for a New Home Build

Thinking about building your new custom home on the Sunshine Coast? Here are the top 10 signs you are ready to begin your custom home build journey!


1. Your Current Home is Poorly Designed

Is your house poorly designed or has serious structural faults? Sometimes it is just better to start from the beginning. Custom design allows complete control over the build and can avoid any critical mistakes or design flaws in your old home. 

At Quality First Constructions, we specialise in creating new custom homes and ensure your new home build runs smoothly and is completed to the highest quality. 


2. You are Considering Renovating

If your home needs significant work and structural changes, it may be more feasible and cost-effective to build a new home rather than renovate an existing structure. At Quality First Constructions, we specialise in new home builds and renovations. If you are unsure of which route will work best for you, enquire today. 


3. You Need More Space

Is your current home feeling a little bit crowded? Whether you’re a growing family or just need more room to roam, building a new home may be for you. A new custom build with Quality First Construction allows you to get involved in the design process, as no one understands what your family needs more than you do. Whether that is a large living room or three bathrooms, we are here to help design your new custom dream home. 


4. You Need Less Space

In contrast, you may want less space. Many empty-nesters are choosing to downsize their homes once their children move out. Larger homes can also have a lot of unwanted and difficult maintenance. By downsizing, you can get the most out of your home and limit the ongoing maintenance needed from a large house. 


5. Your House Style is Outdated

Does your home feel outdated or old? Do you find yourself longing for a more modernised design and home? It’s out with the old and in with the new! At Quality First Constructions, we help create your custom home and work with you every step of the way to ensure you’ll get the best-modernised home of your dreams. 


6. You Want a Personalised Home

There’s nothing better than living in a home designed by you, for you. Your home is where you can reflect who you are. Where you can relax at the end of a tough day or spend quality time with your loved ones, at Quality First Constructions, we understand the significance of a comforting home and will work with you from start to finish to ensure you receive this dream home.


7. You Want to Make the Most Out of Your Land

Is your current home making the most out of your land? It is important to consider what you want to achieve with your current block of land. Whether that is maximising your space for a larger house or conserving an area for a backyard or pool. Having a clear idea of how you want to utilise your land can make the decision for starting a new home easier. 


8. You Want an Energy-Efficient Home 

Making your new home build energy efficient can have a multitude of benefits for the environment and your home feel and possibly allow financial savings. Consider the orientation of the home to optimise the sunshine or shade. Utilise natural airflow by designing windows or sliding doors at either end of your home. There are countless materials, design techniques and planning that can make your new home energy efficient, saving you money in the long run. 


9. You Have a Home Buyers Grant

Before building a house, check your eligibility for the Queensland First Home Buyers Grant. This grant extends help to first-time home buyers who may be choosing to build a new home and offers $15,000 towards buying or building your new home. Please note several criteria need to be met to ensure your eligibility. For more information on the Queensland First Home Buyer Grant, click here
