Advantages of smaller home designs

Downsizers or empty-nesters (parents whose children have grown up and left home) usually want to live in a smaller home in order to free up some time, and possibly some cash too. They often want a three-bedroom, single-storey home that’s low maintenance and one that you can lock up and leave. But they also want high-quality.

Having a smaller home and block usually requires less time to clean and maintain, as well as often being more conveniently located closer to shops and other conveniences.

Downsizers can gain a financial advantage when transferring from a larger property to a smaller property

In the case of older, retired couples, this financial advantage can sometimes be key in underpinning their financial security throughout their golden years.

What our customers say

Perfect Experience for our First home!!!

Starting out looking for a new home was a daunting experience. Then I stumbled across the Stroud Homes website, the high level of inclusions was a relief to run into. The biggest thing for us was the black and white quotes being an accurate reflection of how things are done. We went through exactly what we wanted and we got a clear breakdown of what was involved and what it would cost. When it came to end of the job there was no hidden surprises or variations.

The team at Stroud Homes Toowoomba where excellent to deal with during the contract process and when it came to being onsite we where thoroughly impressed. The house went up with out a hitch and the workmanship was top level. We got good communication through out the build with the Voxer App. One of the most impressive things was how well the site was maintained through out the build. I was once told the sign of a good builder is a clean site and that couldn’t of been truer.

We are now 6 months in the home and there has be no maintenance issues to date. We can’t wait to build again and it will definitely be with Stroud Homes Toowoomba. Highly recommend them to anyone

No Guts No Glory

As migrants, owning a new home could somewhat be daunting. I have heard of how difficult it is to go through the process. My partner and I tried for months looking at houses on sale but we always found something contrary to what we have envisioned. Until I searched in the internet and instantly loved the style of homes offered by Stroud Homes. To top it all, Patrick Neville of Stroud Homes Toowoomba was so accommodating and patient in guiding us achieve our dream of owning our home here in Australia. Building with Stroud Homes is transparent, hassle free experience. Support system is available throughout the build from the Admin Staff (Amanda) to the very energetic Supervisor Ben. Workmanship is superb….thanks to the tradies….Now, we are about to start enjoying our beautiful and cozy home. Thank you Stroud Homes Toowoomba!

Excellent Service Throughout the Entire Build Process Through Stroud Homes Toowoomba

We moved into our new house before the estimated completion date totally due to the communication and flexibility of Stroud Homes Toowoomba. The quality of the finish exceeded our expectations.

From the outset all processes handled by Stroud Homes Toowoomba were communicated with weekly catch ups with Brendan. The communication provided by Stroud Homes Toowoomba is second to none. This is the backbone of any industry and Stroud Homes Toowoomba have mastered the art of communication. We were kept informed every step of the way and everything went very smoothly which is a far cry from our last house build.

All of the crew, Megan, Pat, Deb and Brendan were so accomodating it was unbelievable. The service provided was way better than we ever expected and we would recommend Stroud to any of our family and friends in a heartbeat.

The after sales service was the icing on the cake. we had a small problem with the oven on the weekend and straight away, although they had something planned, Pat and Megan were ready to sacrifice their own plans to fix the issue, which was something out of the builders control.

I’m terms of costs, there were no changes from our initial quote to the end of the contract. The value for money in the finishes that we got is exceptional and we are so happy in our new home.

Updated progress of our house via “voxer app” is really very helpful to us since we are miles away(6/12 hour drive) from Toowoomba. We are happy with the cost which they honestly met our budget. The quality of their job are beyond exceptional. Any issues are actioned immediately and very accurate on the target date in building our house – earlier that expected actually! 🙂
Tears of joy for us!

We love our Stroud home

Our new home in East Toowoomba was never going to be an easy build due to our small battleaxe block. However the team at Stroud Homes Toowoomba stuck it out with a lot of experience and expertise and our dream retirement home materialized into reality. Patrick and Deb were just so supportive and kept us in the loop for the whole build. There were difficulties that were not of Stroud’s doing…and we are so grateful that the staff maintained their composure and patience.

We can’t praise the Stroud team enough…who helped us customize the Wildflower 190 to fit and suit our block perfectly.
The tradespersons were all amazing, so easy to communicate with and who all played their part in the fantastic finish in our home.
We had so many pleasant surprises throughout the build as parts of the house began to materialize…the last being the day we were handed the keys.

Being greeted at our home by Patrick, Deb and Brendan was lovely…we loved the big green bow on the front door…and walking into an immaculate beautifully finished home was the icing on the cake. We were very excited.

We have been waking up in our home for the past five weeks now and we still pinch ourselves each day as we realize that we will be living here for many years to come.

We had set ourselves a budget and are pleased to say that we are happy with the overall costs…we had made several changes to the plan and feel that we have achieved a beautiful home at a very comparable price.

Stroud Toowoomba have delivered their promise and we will definitely recommend them them highly to anyone wishing to build in our beautiful part of the world.

Great team all round, feel like apart of the family

Right from the time that we walked into the display home up in Highfields it felt like home. Megan and the team at Stroud Toowoomba make you feel like you are apart of the family that they have created.
We were deciding between Stroud and another company but Stroud always came out on top with price with everything being up front in cost, quick with quotes and estimates and what it was physically going to look like on site plan.

Megan helped us early on when we had issues with our inital bank of choice. She worked closely with the developer and the brokers on site to help us get into our forever home.

Deb in the office was amazing and nothing was a drama. We were able to come up late to do colour selection, which was really helpful working late jobs. She kept us up to speed with when documents needed to be done, if there were any issues with supplies and gave us an amazingly organised binder!

The final cost of the house was pretty well bang on with what we were quoted. We added a couple of things along the way that were outside and didn’t affect the overall build of the house so that it was not a drama for them to add to the plan and give us a quote on pricing.

When we got to the build stage they were fantastic. Brendan, our site supervisor and Pat were great with all the communication detail and when ever we wanted to have have a chat about the build and how the progress was going they were there. From when the slab went down to the hand over there was never a problem with anything. Unfortunately, we couldn’t make slab day, but we we so happy and surprised with pictures from the team on the day! The Voxer app made communication a breeze, as both of us are in jobs that make phone calls tricky.

We had a couple of dramas with some of the tiles and flooring that we had picked with them not being available or being discontinued (TOTALLY NOT STROUD’S FAULT). They were upfront with everything, even when they got a call a few days before our flooring was supposed to be laid with an issue so we had to choose another type of vinyl plank. They called us straight away to discuss options on how to proceed.

The workmanship of the overall house is AMAZING!!!!! This is the first house that we have built and won’t be our last. When we had our handover and got the keys we moved into the house that afternoon. We had a problem with the hot water and got straight onto the boys even though it was after hours on a Friday afternoon they had no problem walking us through what we needed to do. They even popped round on Saturday morning to make sure that even was working okay.

Big thank you to the team at Toowoomba Stroud for everything and helping us with our dream house.
We would 100% recommend them to build with.

Custom Plans coming to life!

I selected the Stroud Homes Toowoomba Team as I needed accurate costs upfront so I could get finance approved. My blocks is slightly difficult and I do need quite a bit of earth works. Pat was great with providing me usually 3 options for anything our of the ordinary usually a low, med and high so I could decide on what was right for me and my family keeping in mind I want a high quality home but for value.

So far so good and I am continually blown away with the communication of the team and have been since Sales stage with Megan and now we are nearing construction with Brendan and Deb.

I thought building a custom home which required substantial earthworks on a slightly difficult town block would be more difficult than this and am really grateful for the support I have received from the owners Megan and Pat.

Outstanding teamwork made the whole process a breeze

The team from Stroud Homes Toowoomba were open and honest with us from our first chat at their display home in Highfields. They all went above and beyond to make our dream home a reality, and were easily reachable via Voxer to answer any questions we had along the way. Our house was built with the utmost craftsmanship and they completed ahead of schedule. We could not be happier with the final product and would recommend Stroud Homes to any and all people looking to build a high quality, beautiful home.
