We talked to builder and owner Patrick Neville about building in the Toowoomba region in 2018:


Why should people build a home in Toowoomba and the Darling Downs?

Toowoomba and the Darling Downs is in my mind one of the best spots to be, the family atmosphere and living lifestyle that the regions offers is great for families.

On top of this the growth in the region is remarkable at the moment with a large amount of infrastructure and industrial projects taking place at the moment and into the future. This will provide a steady growth platform for the region in jobs and housing prices.


What do you think is essential for creating a home in 2018?

Awareness of habitat is a concept people should be putting thought into. How they live and would like to live in a home. If you can get this core concept correct and work outwards from it you will end up extremely happy with the end result.


What is the number one question people should ask their builder?

What is included as standard. This is where people get caught out, not having a full understanding of what they are getting for their hard-earned dollar.

It is also one of the biggest contributors to the breakdown of relationships between the builder and customer and the building experience.

Standard Inclusions


What is the number one question people should ask themselves before deciding to build?

I like the concept of starting at the maximum and working backwards. Take on the idea “if there was no issues and you could pick and choose anything what would it be” and work backwards from there:

  • Where would be the ideal block?
  • Does it have views or a certain size?
  • What size is the house?
  • Where is the living area located?
  • How many bedrooms?

From there we can start to build a picture of what it is you need and we can start to eliminate possibilities and variables until we are left with a great outcome of land and house design.


What is the number one question people should ask themselves before choosing a home design?

I think this one directly refers back to what is essential for creating a home. If you can have a good understanding of how you want live, we can work with you to maximize that and how it works in with your block of land also.
