About Stroud Homes Fraser Coast

Meet your builders – Slade & Aletha Walters

With a long standing reputation as a local second generation builder, Slade Walters, along with his wife Aletha, are proud to carry both Stroud Homes Fraser Coast and Stroud Homes Bundaberg.

With Slade’s 23 years of building experience and Aletha’s Building Design and Masters in Business Administration, the team help provide their customers with an easy and exacting building experience up and down the Queensland coast.

The Walters keep a pulse on the Fraser Coast region by employing locally and they also enjoy playing an active role in each community.

Whilst there are many self-funded retirees wanting to enjoy the ultimate sea and tree change, there are also many first home builders in the region.

“We’re also doing a lot of first home buyers, there’s a lot of affordable suburban land in Hervey Bay and we’re finding a lot of people are looking to get into their own home.”

Noticing a need for homes for first home builders and investors, the team have created the Stroud Super 6 range. By pairing back on the inclusions, they have created ‘stepping stone’ houses that are ideal for family living with builds coming in under $250,000.

Aletha finds that what sets Stroud Homes apart from their competitors is their transparency when it comes to pricing.

“I met with a client this morning and one of the things they love about Stroud is that we price it properly, we give them a fixed price.”

This means that there are no hidden extras waiting to leap out at the customer at the end of the build.

Wide Bay Team – Exceeded all Expectations!

If you want a team who goes above and beyond your expectations to build your dream home, look no further than Stroud Homes – Wide Bay. Slade & Aletha could see our vision & pushed all the boundaries to deliver what was promised. As first home owners we never imagined our bargain block would bring with it battles with Council, flood zoning restrictions and the odd boulder in the way of foundations! Slade and Aletha made us feel at ease and informed as the they and their team dealt with the stresses and pressures this build came with. Our home was built on time, at the price quoted and with a ‘standard range’ which includes the extras! Exceptional support, quality workmanship and fittings, enthusiasm & exciting fresh ideas, just what the home builders of Wide Bay needed. Thank you for seeing our dream through to the end with us, our beautiful new home would not be possible without you!

Build your dream home with Stroud!

We looked at quite a few builders before deciding to go with Stroud. Slade and Aletha were so helpful right from the beginning and after meeting with them the choice was simple. Their standard range of products is amazing and when we wanted something different they made every effort to get us everything we wanted for our home. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the build and especially the finished product, it is perfect and exactly what we hoped for. If anybody is looking for someone to build them their dream home I couldn’t suggest there would be anybody who could do a better job than Stroud.

Highly recommend Stroud Homes Widebay

When my husband and I started researching to build our dream home we asked fellow friends and family who they had built with in the past and who they would recommend locally. Sadly, a lot of the responses were “We built with ____ but wouldn’t build with them again”. Realising there was no stand-out builder in the area we were left back at square one to continue our research and hope for the best.

My husband began looking at house plans online and came across the vast range on Strouds website. He found the perfect plan which also happened to be a display home so we drove hours to check it out. We absolutely loved it and were impressed with the quality – we just needed to build that home in our hometown!

A week or so passed and then we heard about Stroud Homes Widebay and their grand opening in Bundaberg! It was like it was meant to be! We met with Aletha and Slade and found them to be genuine and down-to-earth. They were full of knowledge and gave great advice. They were patient with our ‘millions’ of emails asking about things and wanting to change some ideas and add in or take out things, always a quick reply and then wham, our slab went down! Today marks a year since our slab was poured.

We have lived in our house for 9 months with no major concerns or problems.

Everyone who visits loves our home and we highly recommend Stroud Homes Widebay. We would definitely build with them again. For our first time building, it has been the best experience.

Slade, Aletha, Scott and their tradespeople were always happy to chat to us on site visits, our site was impressively clean inside and out and our build-time was as it was meant to be. A few special notes I’d like to mention – our butlers pantry had 4 rows of 3 drawers in each and they were different sizes in height, small, medium, large. When we asked if they could change them to be all the same size, they happily accommodated and replaced them. In our bathroom we had 3 cupboards under the sink side-by-side. When we asked if we could change one cupboard and make it into 3 drawers, they happily accommodated and replaced it. In our kitchen along our island bench wall we have a pretty big mosaic tile feature, when we asked them if they could change the grout from white to dark they happily accommodated – which I know was a pain to have to scratch out!

We are truly thankful that Slade and Aletha came along. Our house has been entered into numerous building awards and fingers crossed they win to prove that Stroud Homes Widebay is a great local builder! Our home is like no other on the street, with Strouds amazing façade and designs making it stand out. People still stop by and take photos!

Build with Stroud and your home will definitely ‘feel like home’.

Excellent Builders in the Wide Bay Region

We built a spec home with Stroud Homes Wide Bay as the first in a coastal property development we have at Ocean Heights, Elliott Heads.

From day one the building process was made easy with over 100 designs to choose from. The quote was quick and we were ready to start. We were able to pick all fittings keeping to their standard range. This range was impressive including a lot of things that most builders would charge extra for. The design process was made so easy picking all colours and fittings in one in store consultation. There was no need to go to tile shops, carpet shops, plumbing and lighting shops etc. It was all done in their office. They had sample ranges of everything we had to choose. We have built before and experienced first hand the hassle of being given certain pc costs to choose your own range. It was almost impossible to stick within the budget then. Not with Stroud Homes Wide Bay, we are happy to say we got to the end of our bill with no extra charges.

Alethea & Slade were hands on during the whole process and always addressed our questions and concerns immediately throughout the build.

We have no hesitations recommending Stroud Homes Wide Bay now to anyone.

We will also use them to build again.

Thank you again Slade and Alethea for making the building process very easy and stress free.
