Paradise Homes About



Since 1972, Paradise Homes has been designing, building and renovating award-winning homes on difficult, awkward-shaped and sloping blocks both large and small across South East Queensland.

Our in-house designer will work with you to bring your ideas to life, and if your project requires town planning assessment, our team will liaise with the Town Planner and guide you through the process. There’s no need to engage third-party architects or designers, and it’s all part of the price. Whether your block is large or small, inner city or suburban, we can design and build a tailored solution to suit your land, lifestyle and budget. We pride ourselves on having a small, integrated team that includes you. We work with and guide you to reimagine the way you might live. From the very beginning we are crafting the ideal solutions for you, while ensuring that you are an integral part of the design and build process.

Our New Homes, Remodels and Pavilions are individually designed and built for comfortable living in South East Queensland. We pour our specialist knowledge of the Queensland landscape and climate into the design for your particular block to make the utmost of your surroundings, while potentially easing the amount of energy needed to run and sustain it on a daily basis. Above all, the greatest reward for Paradise Homes is that you love your finished home as much as we do.
