Building your dream home can become a nightmare if the design is floored & the builder does not quote a fixed price. You have little control on what the final bill will be.

Why is Townsville going to recover very soon?
Let me count the ways:
This is an unprecedented position that Townsville is in, how big will it get?
Not all new Townsville homes are concrete or built in new sub-divisions. If you look around any new home subdivision in Townsville (or even Cairns, Darwin etc), you will see nearly 100% rendered masonry block construction.
Being a versatile & innovative new home builder, we are currently constructing several timber framed homes with the “Weather Board” exterior style (Hardie's Linea cladding), to construct “old world style” homes with the latest innovations.
Many of these Hampton Style homes are being built in inner suburbs such as West End, Hermit Park etc.
If you would like to view these stunning timber homes, don't hesitate to contact our Design Team.
NHS has been a local builder in Townsville for 15 years, not some easy feat with the ups & downs the industry endures. The last 5 years have been very difficult & many are no longer around, so survival is also an “award worth winning”.
We have won numerous Industry awards over many year, but the most important award is the “Thank you” we get from happy clients, after we build their home, plus the “survival award” is also a must have.
We are very pleased to see our industry & Townsville are on better footing, be it early days… so as the industry picks up, all the HIA awards we have recently won will mean more to us, & we hope to our customers:
To our clients, they can see our effort, our superior quality & how hard we work to deliver best value for the home we build them.
Winning the NQ Best Small Builder of the Year (HIA) was a truly rewarding achievement for our whole team. It was a complete team effort that includes all our committed Trades was well as staff.
The team focus we have on customer's enjoyment of the building process & continually building confidence in what we do, is reflected in this award.
We have won numerous great awards over the last 15 years & all reflect our core value of “Clients come first”, but this one is truly a team effort. Come & talk to our Award-winning team & experience what this award means to you.
NHS has developed our award-winning Design Service to assist our Customers design their home that exactly suites you, your site & to meet budget.
We have experienced many times over the years, clients bring a design to us they have spent a lot of money having drawn by architects/draft people, only to find they are tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars over their budgets. All this time, effort & money is wasted as the home they had their hearts set on is totally unaffordable.
How do they get to this point - unreliable advice on costs of building while the design is being drawn.
With the NHS Free Design Process, you avoid this… save you all those costs, time & frustration.
The design partnership includes a cost review at critical milestones, that keeps you on budget with the design ideas you wish to include in your home. This Partnership continues through the build.
The look of a timber deck or polished timber internal floor is a very popular element with many of our new homes. It adds that warmth that only timber can deliver.
Timber, in our climate, comes with its own challenges that a tile floor for example would not carry. A timber deck (or any timber) needs to be protected from the elements. Particularly high moisture/humidity levels as timber absorbs moisture and humidity from the atmosphere so needs to be protected where possible from excessive exposure.
Correct design, installation planning & full coating of timber on 4 sides before installation, are some elements that are a must for best performance of your timber floor. We can advise on best approach when considering timber in your home.
The building process should be exciting, enjoyable & rewarding with the finished home a source of great pride to all involved. This is achieved with strong communication & a trust between your builder & yourself.
Sounds easy… even logical?
The most important focus for NHS is your satisfaction, that is achieved by working very hard for you from the initial design, with experienced advice, user friendly systems, committed trades & flexibility. NHS focus is a partnership between us & every one of our clients. This mutual confidence always result in wonderful outcomes with your home & the experience is enjoyable… not stressful!
When selecting your builder - check around, talk to past clients of the builder, make the judgement “can I work with this builder?”
Designing for the future - not always easy, plus budget is always a factor. Simple things like assuring resale, eg. home design with 4 bedroom, 2 bathrooms, 2 garages is one approach. The value of your home is determined by the following:
2. Size & inclusions in your home
3. Style & quality
You firstly build for your needs, then consider how to incorporate the above 3 elements to your best advantage.
