Custom Homes

Did you know Spacemaker also builds custom built new homes?  Check out our recent award winning custom built home to see an amazing example of what we can achieve for you.

While extensions and renovations is where it all began for Spacemaker, we are also known for constructing quality, value-for-money custom homes for clients who want a stress free experience from one of Melbourne’s most reputable builders.

For a place that's distinctively yours, it's hard to go past a custom built home.

While extending and renovating your existing dwelling is generally the easier option and better value for money, the decision to build a custom new home can sometimes be the sensible path forward.  If you are unsure whether the best option is to extend, renovate or construct a new home, our experienced design team will guide you in the right direction.

Custom new homes can be invigorating. You are in the driver’s seat, selecting the type of materials, quality, design and energy efficiency you've always wanted – in a location of your choice.

Not only do custom new homes let you hold the reins when it comes to making decisions, the ultimate result will be uniquely created to suit you and your family's preferences and lifestyle needs. It's the personalised touches in a space designed from scratch that make it truly your home.

Here are just some of the advantages of opting for a custom home build:

Ticks all the boxes
Imagine having a say over every single detail of your future home, from the layout and lighting, to custom appliances and architectural flourishes. With a custom new home, you'll be rewarded with a level of satisfaction hard to come by with volume builders. Opportunities to integrate bespoke elements are limited only by the imagination.

Signature style
When it comes to a fully customised home, after achieving regulatory compliance, there's no compromising on the aesthetic or style as everything is designed to your taste. Remember there's no right or wrong, no matter how conventional or innovative. You're in creative control. It's your opportunity to work with a custom home builder to literally create the home of your dreams, starting with a blank canvas.

Forge an emotional connection
Building your home from the ground up and having 360-degree involvement in this important project allows you to be deeply invested in it from day one. Doing something so unique for yourself and your family creates a special bond. Whether is a custom new home, extension or renovation, being involved together as a family with creating your new home is an exciting and memorable experience. 

Save money in the long term
When engaging Spacemaker as your design and build professional, we’ll guide you in the most cost effective way to achieve your desired home.  In some instances, renovating or extending simply isn’t the way to proceed for the best financial outcome, and we’ll let you know if this is the case. If a custom new home is recommended by us, or if it is your preferred option, it may initially cost more up front, but the long term benefits are worth the outlay.

Love the location
Select a parcel of land that you love in an area you love so you can make this a home for life. Consult with Spacemaker Home Extensions to ensure the land you choose is suitable for the home you have in mind. You may wish to enjoy certain vistas, share land with others in a community-type setting, or have so much privacy that your home becomes a sanctuary away from the world. By contacting our design team early, you can also take advantage of years of experience to ensure you are set in the right direction from the very beginning.

Next steps
Once you've decided to build a custom new home, what next? It's time to sit down with Spacemaker’s design team. Take the time to speak with our designers who will begin the exciting design process. We’ll show you our portfolio of projects, and together, you can create that perfect custom home that meets your brief and your budget.

Influence the design
You'll work with Spacemaker’s design team as your custom home builder of choice throughout every stage of the building process.

This means you have the freedom to influence the home design before construction begins to reflect your wishes from the inside out.

Whether it's an outstanding kitchen and living area, an alfresco area for entertaining, a special kind of flooring or even a swimming pool or on-site gym, it's the special extras that will enable us to bring your dreams for a perfect house to life.

Energy efficiency
Consumers are becoming increasingly conscious of their carbon footprint and are making purchasing decisions accordingly. A custom built home enables you to maximise energy efficiency and reduce emissions through well thought-out passive design.
The use of the free energy in the sun and wind allows you to minimise, or sometimes even eliminate, the need for mechanical heating or cooling. Clever passive design can also be achieved through orientation of the home, positioning of windows, wise choice of building materials, water saving devices, solar panels, smart technology, quality insulation and a range of energy-saving mod cons. These inclusions can have massive benefits, financially, for the planet and for our children’s future.

The best testimonial for Spacemaker that we can give is the fact we are already looking for potential properties to renovate so we can repeat the fantastic experience we had with Tim and his team!
