Our end-to-end design and build process means we create homes to perfectly suit your lifestyle and family needs all the while staying within your budget. While a daunting process, designing and building a custom home has many benefits over selecting a volume builder or project/kit home. It enables you to create the living space you’ve always dreamed of instead of having to settle for someone else’s design.
Many people may believe it’s more stressful to build a custom home, however, our decades of experience has enabled us to develop a process for designing and building that minimises stress and ensures the project is completed in a timely manner. We understand that building a home is likely to be the biggest investment you’ll ever make so it’s important you’re getting a home that can last you a lifetime. That’s why when you build with us, we offer an extended warranty through our ‘Customer for Life Program’ that guarantees our build quality beyond the mandatory minimums.
With over 30 years of experience and having designed and built several award-winning homes, we are one of Melbourne’s leading custom home builders. Sherbrooke can help design and build you a single, double or triple storey home that is unique, functional for living and perfect for your family. We haven’t got the survey data to back it up but we’d say 99% of people who custom design and build their home are happier than those who don’t. Contact us today to find out why!

FAQs about Custom-Built Homes Melbourne 2023
What Is A Custom Home?
A custom home is a one-of-a-kind house that is designed for a specific client and site. Unlike a volume built home that is mass produced on speculation of a future buyer, a custom home is constructed after an agreement has been reached between the builder and a client. Because each home is unique, custom builders might partner with an architect or designer to create plans that reflect a client’s preferences and lifestyle.
But a custom home is much more than that. At least we certainly think so at Sherbrooke Design and Construction. For many of our clients, a custom home is the realisation of a long-held dream. It’s also an investment both financially and in the future of all those who inhabit it. If you’re reading this and wondering what it might be like to live in your own custom designed residence, Sherbrooke Constructions is the bridge between you and living in your dream luxury custom home.
What Is Most Important To Know When Speaking To A Custom Home Builder?
When having those initial conversations with a custom home builder, it’s important to ask questions that will give you a clear understanding of their process and what you can expect from the project as a whole. Here are some things that you as the buyer might want to know:
- Have they built homes similar to your design before?
- What is their design process?
- Do they have a portfolio of past projects?
- What types of materials will they use?
- What sort of timeline would be needed to complete your design?
As the potential buyer of a custom home, you will in all likelihood have a large number of questions that need to be answered. At Sherbrooke Design and Construction, we’re no strangers to these questions and would be delighted to help put your mind at ease and get started on making your dream home a reality.
Why Choose A Custom Built Home?
There are many reasons why people elect to build custom homes. Some buyers have very specific needs that can only be met by commissioning a bespoke design. Others may own an irregularly shaped lot or property, such as a narrow or sloping block, with features that make it unsuitable for a standard home design. In some cases, people simply want more control over the final product and the building process.
There are many advantages to designing and building a custom home. But the one that comes above all else, you get to design your dream home. One of the most common reasons people choose to build a custom home is that they want to create their dream residence. They may have lived in a variety of different houses but never found one that had everything they wanted and needed. So, they take matters into their own hands and design a house from scratch that meets all of their requirements and suits their lifestyle.
For a home that is as unique as you are, choose one of Melbourne’s leading custom home builders and build with Sherbrooke Design and Construction.
How Long Does A Custom Home Take To Build?
As each of our homes are unique in design, so too are the timeframes they can be built in. There are a wide and varied range of factors to consider that end up playing a deciding part in the time required to complete the project. Here’s a look at what those factors are so that you know what to expect.
To start with, there’s the design of the house. How difficult will it be to build? More complex designs may take longer to build.
Next, is the land itself. The state of the block that the house will go on will have a large impact on how long it takes before the actual construction of the house can begin. If large excavations are needed for basements and pools or retaining walls for gardens, then these will be a consideration also.
Then there are other, smaller factors to consider like the lead time for some of the materials being used and how long it will take to get tradespeople on site.
At Sherbrooke Design and Construction, we take pride in offering a stress-free fixed-time contract through which you can rest assured that your home will be ready when you are.
