Need Help Finding The Right Land In Bundaberg?
Our home building process often begins before you have even purchased your land – our team will happily engage with you during the land selection and purchasing stage. This is beneficial as it allows us to help you choose a block of land that is well suited to the design that you have in mind.
Got The Land. Let's Focus On The Design
Alternatively, we can help you design a home that is well suited to the block of land you may already own. This has the potential to save you a considerable amount of money, as building to the conditions is the most economical form of construction. Once you have decided upon a design and a block of land, the practical aspects of the homebuilding process will commence and we strive to manage every step for your peace of mind. From soil testing, through to final approvals and everything in between, we will ensure that your land is well prepared for the construction of your dream home.
Leading Bundaberg Builders Creating The Highest Quality Homes
With 50 years industry experience, we have access to some of the most qualified engineers, certifiers and sub contractors in the business – all of whom are local operators. This ensures that the quality of your finished home will be second to none and the associated costs will be very reasonable. During construction, our team will help you with product and colour selection, interior design and layout, cabinetwork and everything else required to have your home looking and feeling its best.
Advantages Of Our House Builders Bundaberg Process:
- Detailed quotes to make sure that you get exactly what you need
- Inclusion of finalised colour and product selection in your contract – this ensures that you will not pay more for ‘variations’ after the contract is signed

If you are in the market for a new home, get in touch with our team of leading Bundaberg new home builders for a free consultation at your earliest convenience. It doesn’t matter if you have a plan and a block of land, just a plan, or no more than a block of land in mind – we can help you get your new home into motion. Should you have land already, we can begin our site investigations while we finalise the plans for your home, thus saving you time later on as site investigations and quoting can take approximately 4 weeks. Alternatively, if you have a plan but are waiting to find the perfect block, we can develop a quote for your plan and get the process moving; either way you will be one step closer to council approval, which can take between 2 to 4 weeks.
It is important that you choose a local Bundaberg builder who understands your needs. An important aspect of this is your budget and at Murchie Homes we have a broad range of standard designs from granny flats, to large multi storey homes – all of which can be customised to your specifications and budget. Additionally, we can work with you and a team of designers and consultants to create an architecturally unique home. Simply tell us everything that you want from your new home and we will tell you what is required to make it happen.
Our Home Builders Bundaberg Process
Throughout our 50 years of experience building homes in the Bundaberg region, we have developed a thorough and effective process through which to construct homes of the best quality and this process involves six main steps. If you are considering engaging in the home building process, book a free consultation with us today to learn more about what to look for in a home builder.
1/ Deposit and site investigations
After we have discussed and finalised a home design with you, we will provide you with a preliminary quote. Whilst this quote is accurate, there is always the potential for external factors to impact on the price of construction. For this reason, we will conduct a thorough site investigation that includes an assessment of soil classification, slope, flood levels and any other factors that might impact the construction of your home. A minor deposit is necessary to conduct this investigation, which allows us to offer you a fixed price contract.
2/ Council lodgement
After we have prepared your fixed price contract, we will lodge a copy with the council for plumbing approval and with a private certifier for building approval. This typically takes 2-4 weeks.
Following the approval of your plans, we will issue orders to all of our sub contractors. Our contract allows us as your Bundaberg home builder 20 working days to commence on site and the date of commencement – whether it is on the 20 th day or before – is deemed the starting date.
4/ Progress Payments
Five progress payments will be made throughout the process. The first payment is made at ‘base stage’ when the slab is poured; the second is made at ‘frame stage’ when the trusses are erected; the third is made at ‘enclosed stage’ when all doors and windows are in place; the fourth is made at ‘fixing stage’ when all internal doors are fitted, as well as skirtings and architraves; and the final payment will be made at ‘practical completion stage’ when all works have been completed and a Final Inspection Certificate has been issued by a private certifier.
The keys are provided to you – the owner – upon completion of all payments. A Murchie Homes representative will conduct the handover inspection and work with you to note any items that require attention under the defects period.
All of the houses constructed by Murchie Homes have a 12-month maintenance period and a standard 6 year, 3 month QBCC warranty period. This is a testament to the quality of your home and gives you peace of mind, knowing that you are covered if anything does go wrong.
