The best build ever!!!
We have been in our dream home that Stroud homes bundaberg built for us for 3 weeks now and the boys and I are still on cloud 9! Words cannot express just how happy Josh and I had been throughout the build let alone now being able to live in our beautiful Avoca! I couldn’t be happier! From our very first consult to our final handover, nothing seemed to be an issue. Aletha and the team just seemed to make it happen without a drama! The quality delivered throughout the home is what everyone expects and it’s just so fantastic that Stroud deliver that in their standard inclusions. Aletha and Slade are true to their word about the black and White quotes. No hidden costs what so ever! I loved to be able to walk through the Hervey Bay display home just to see the standard inclusions and get a better idea of what things look like and what I was getting for my money.
Our broker was very impressed at the house valuation as Stroud homes came above the average!
I looked forward to our weekly calls for an update on the build and loved seeing the build step by step! Aletha, Slade and Scott were always more then happy to involve our family in the build process and our boys will remember that forever!
If we choose to build again, we wouldn’t need to think who our builders will be. We know it will be Aletha and Slade at Stroud homes widebay!
Great house to become a great home!
How well managed was your build? - From slab pour to final handover i have been mostly impressed the whole process.
How was the workmanship and build quality of your property? - The workman ship is OK and quality is OK, I think minor improvements of trade persons used could possibly be looked at, A few things where i think the tradies need to realize that they are building someones house and a little more care/initiative would be great.
If you had any issues pre, post, or during construction, how satisfied are you with how the company handled them? - Any issues that have arisen throughout the build have mostly be rectified, happy with that.
How did your final cost compare to your estimated cost? - no issues on costing. Travis and the team were spot on and cannot fault on scaring me with excessive bills on adjustments made by myself.
Overall - Good job, good house.. looking forward to making it our home!
We love our Stroud home.
Our new home in East Toowoomba was never going to be an easy build due to our small battleaxe block. However the team at Stroud Homes Toowoomba stuck it out with a lot of experience and expertise and our dream retirement home materialized into reality. Patrick and Deb were just so supportive and kept us in the loop for the whole build. There were difficulties that were not of Stroud's doing...and we are so grateful that the staff maintained their composure and patience.
We can't praise the Stroud team enough...who helped us customize the Wildflower 190 to fit and suit our block perfectly.
The tradespersons were all amazing, so easy to communicate with and who all played their part in the fantastic finish in our home.
We had so many pleasant surprises throughout the build as parts of the house began to materialize...the last being the day we were handed the keys.
Being greeted at our home by Patrick, Deb and Brendan was lovely...we loved the big green bow on the front door...and walking into an immaculate beautifully finished home was the icing on the cake. We were very excited.
We have been waking up in our home for the past five weeks now and we still pinch ourselves each day as we realize that we will be living here for many years to come.
We had set ourselves a budget and are pleased to say that we are happy with the overall costs...we had made several changes to the plan and feel that we have achieved a beautiful home at a very comparable price.
Stroud Toowoomba have delivered their promise and we will definitely recommend them them highly to anyone wishing to build in our beautiful part of the world.

Beautiful House Designs
We love the layout and design of the Wildflower display home at Riply. Perfect for what we were looking for. The Wildflower display home at Springfield also had a stunning glass feature entrance, definitely a wow factor.
So much easier than we thought it would be
Let's be upfront about something: we could have been nightmares as clients because my husband is a builder and yes, he was looking over the shoulders of the workmen on a daily basis (they took it very well, by the way). We chose to build through Stroud Brisbane South because their designs were great, the pricing was extremely competitive and the service was impeccable. Any build is going to have a few hiccups, but the ones we experienced were minor and quickly remedied. The staff were very flexible and great at finding solutions to problems that arose during the course of the build. From start to finish, they were a pleasure to work with, especially as our location is out of the way and not an easy place to build. Most amazing of all, the project was finished on time and to budget.

Dream home a perfect reality
Choosing to build our family home with Stroud Homes Northern Rivers, was the best decision. We designed a custom built home, that worked with the slope of our block, and the team at Stroud worked hard to get us exactly what we envisaged. Although we contacted other builders for a quote, Stroud’s standard inclusions were unbeatable! The quote provided to us at contract, is the price we had paid by handover. There were no hidden costs with Stroud. Between Contract Administrator Larnah, to Sales manager Luke, and Site Supervisor Rohan, we had fast communication and lots of support. Rohan offered regular walk-throughs, and kept us fully informed throughout the build. We’re now living in a perfectly designed home for our family, and are very happy with the high quality finishes. Thank you Matt Lowson and your awesome team, on a very positive building experience.
Highly recommend to anyone looking to build!! Made building our first house easy and enjoyable!!
Stroud were amazing to deal with! All staff are friendly, approachable and made building our first house easy! Everything was exactly as we imagined! We would build with Stroud again any day!
On point and on time
Since starting our journey with Stroud Northern Rivers we have received amazing service. Everything that has been detailed and promised has been met and although we did request quotes elsewhere we easily made the decision to go with Stroud as they are pretty much the only builders that have included everything in our cost, no hidden charges to come, no unknowns. Luke, Larnah and the rest of the team have shown great care and attention toward what for us, as a young family, is a very big step. Thanks guys!
Unethical Conduct - Northern Rivers
Our experience with Northern Rivers felt completely unethical.
We felt we were lured under false pretences that we were within budget.
5 months of our time was wasted with designs, negotiating prelim contracts, and the 4 hour colour appointment.
On the day we were supposed to sign the contract we were sent an email saying that they were no where near our budget and the original quote.
A disappointing experience to say the least. 5 months of our time wasted.
Had Issues but They Have Agreed to Fix Them.
We had a couple of issues during the build and a few things didn't go as planned. At this point in time the management at Stroud Homes - Gold Coast are assisting us to resolve these matters.
First home builders dream!
Adam & Rachel were fabulous from day one! As first home buyers we had no idea what we were doing, they were helpful and so transparent with every detail from the costs to the building specifics. Our package included everything even a letterbox & clothesline! The colour choices were beautiful and the build was seamless. Communication was wonderful with the Voxer app, it kept us both in the loop & receiving picture updates was so exciting! Adam would also call every Friday with a weekly update of where they were at! The build was completed two months before the planned end date.
We were welcomed into our new home with two smiling faces and a giant green bow! We can’t speak highly enough of Adam & Rachel from Stroud!!
Stroud Brisbane East recently finished our gorgeous family home. From design conception to home completion, they made our dream a reality. We were able to change the Stroud plan to suit our needs. This was at no extra cost and one of the reasons we chose Stroud. It was great to be able to design our home exactly how we wanted it to look.
The build was very professionally managed. All team members are polite and attended to any queries we had promptly and thoroughly. We were regularly informed of progress on every stage of the build, making the build worry free.
Workmanship is of a very high standard. We looked for a builder who was affordable but still built a home of high standard - Stroud Brisbane East achieved this in our home.
There were no surprises when it came to build cost. The build price was exactly as quoted, another reason we chose SHBE.
We would definitely recommend Stroud Homes Brisbane East. In fact, a family member has just commenced their build with SHBE.
All in all we love our home!
A great house and easy to deal with company!
A massive thanks to David, Matthew, Lisa and Shennyn for making the process of building my first home a breeze. I absolutely love the support you all provided and the beautiful house. I felt very informed with the process and everything was in black and white. I can’t thank you guys enough.
Can’t be more proud to have a Tamworth Stroud Built Home! - Armidale NSW
Thank you to Pete & his team at Stroud Homes Tamworth. In just 13 weeks we were living in our home. It was the fastest build we could have imagine, Pete and his team worked effortlessly to bring it together. It’s now been 6 months living in our new home and we couldn't be happier with the final process. From the very first point of contact through to walking into our newly completed home at handover, we knew we had chosen the best to build. Being able to customise our home without hassle or additional cost was fantastic. The communication between all parties was faultless. Pete met all our needs and it is evident that every trade involved in our build had a sense of pride in their work. Any issues were quickly identified and resolved - usually before we were even aware of them. There were no surprises in the final cost either, thanks to the quoting system they use, every detail and cost was accounted for before we even began the build. If you’re thinking of building make sure you talk to Pete!
Excellect Team environment at Stroud Homes Brisbane North
As a First home buyer and builder the task of building a home is a very daunting one. But from the minute we walked in the display homes and spoke with Kyle to the handover with Greg, Kyle and Jace the process of building a home through Stroud Homes Brisbane North has been an extremely smooth one. With weekly updates from Greg directly on the progress of our house and he was willing to answer any question no matter how silly it was in professional manner. All this combined with great workmanship took all our fears away and now we are living in a fantastic home of our design and couldn't be happier.
StroudHomes Sydney South West
For whoever is reading my feedback, first of all congratulation for making the first step of building your home. Secondly another congratulation that you are thinking of building it through stroudhomes south west (SSW).
I am not writing this feedback during the built of my house or just after receiving my keys. I am writing this feedback after living in the house for 3 months. So I am certain of what I am writing.
SSW is a family owned business with everybody working hard to get you your dream house. I am sure you are comparing builders. Don’t compare the total price, compare the standard inclusion. Other builders’ prices are cheaper but upgrades become very necessary. And most builder’s upgrade are what SSW includes in their standard inclusion. I have received a decent house with good inclusion. Some example below which I compared before which you might not pay attention until you moved in:
With SSW, ceiling height is 2.59m whereas some are only 2.4m.
Kitchen stovetop and oven is 900mm whereas some are only 600mm
All appliances are of good brand. Dishwasher got good reviews and wash very well.
All bathroom stainless steel are heavy and of good quality
There is a lot of other things I didn't pay attention until people asked me "is it included? Wow ours is an upgrade".
Things like all my wardrobe came with rail for hangers, shelves and drawers. Some builder won't include the drawers.
My linen press came with opac glass door which is an upgrade from some builder.
See builder can give you a house include the basic things but not all builder will include QUALITY basic things.
And since they are family owned, they work very well together. Sera happily exchanged both my bathroom vanity to my choice (other style and free standing) and didn't charge me extra. She said they are similar price so don't worry about the price, she will just change the name on plan for me to receive the one I want.
They happily changed my free standing bathtub to built-in one. This change require more labour concrete and tiles work but they didn't charge me. There is a lot of other things they did for me I can write a book.
I went to the office, Mary is always busy with phone calls and emails. But whenever I send her email, she replies me so quick as if she was waiting for my emails.
All the above is all in their favours so don't think I am their relative or so. I am just a client to them. There was a lot of time I was worried, stress. Many time I got upset with them when things are not in control, when tradies delayed them and they delayed me, when there is weather break, etc.. But in saying that I am glad I received my house in exactly 5months time sinceslab was poured. Getting a house in the time frame doesn’t happen so often with most builders. This is something people were scaring me about.
Lastly, on the handover day, I was also given a great hamper from Local and Co. My friend told me my builder is indeed very good to give that because hers didn't give. There was also some addition in the hamper thanks to Dominique and Yusuf.
I am not someone who gave them presents, flowers, chocolate etc on the first day I received my keys but writing them a good feedback after I stayed for a while. And I believe this feedback is way better than anything.
I feel very happy that my dream house is built by STROUDHOMES SYDNEY SOUTHWEST team.
A big thank you to Freddy the builder, Mary, Dominique, Yusuf (admin), Sera (Accounts), Ben&George (Site supervisors).
Home fit for a King
Matt and team hit the ground running on the very day my land was settled by the council. We were so happy that Stroud Homes Nothern Rivers allowed us full control of what was happening on the ground i.e met and discussed as we go with sub-contractors like the painter, the tiler, the plumber, the electrician etc. That means the whole experience was hustle-free and done to a perfection. Matt and Rohan are very approachable and were easy to work with - would recommend Stroud to anyone wishing to live like a King in the Northern Rivers. My Kirra303 final costs is around the median house price in my neighbourhood but worth significantly more - talking about value for money from Stroud Homes Northern Rivers.
Stroud SE Qld; by far the best Experience and result of the 3 houses we built over the years.
Stroud SE Queensland was a pleasure to deal with. They really have their act together.
From the managing director Tom to our building supervisor Peter, to the engineers, to the office staff, they are all on the ball and eager to help and make it happen. The contractors Stroud employs are the best we have ever had and deliver a quality product.
In short. Stroud SE Qld is just being managed very effectively AND their solutions to variations are quite creative too.
We had a large number of variations including huge excavation and earth works, changing of all windows into 2600 high Stackers including the games room and master bedroom to get the best of our stunning views. Stroud did it all without pain and with an excellent end result.
Of course there were some challenges too but Stroud never made and issue out of them. They just worked on it and made it happen. No stress. They are simply reliable and trustworthy.
Of the 3 home building experiences we had over the years this experience with Stroud SE Qld was easily the winner and the Best. We will definitely recommend them to our friends.
Amazing Product and Service - Stroud Homes Brisbane South
We decided to build our first home this year with Stroud and they have been brilliant throughout the whole process. Peter Simpson and the team at Stroud Homes Brisbane South have been a pleasure to deal with, answering all of our questions and helping us understand where we were at with each stage of the build and what to expect next. We were able to customise one of their designs to suit us and be confident in the knowledge that we had a fixed price quote that wouldn't change or blow out later on in the build. The quality of the standard inclusions and the finished home is excellent and they were able to deliver it well within the promised timeframe. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Stroud Homes Brisbane South to anyone looking for a builder and when the times comes would happily build with them again.
A quality build, finished before time, with no fuss. The team at Stroud Coffs Harbour exceeded our e
After speaking with a few vague and non-committal builders we came across Stroud Homes Coffs Harbour. From the outset Yarren was open and honest with the Stroud building process, he happily attended our block and gave his ideas and recommendations (which were spot on) We were taken with Strouds' comprehensive inclusions, and sold on the openness and transparency that Stroud Coffs demonstrated. No one base floor plan suited us exactly, so Yarren took the time to work with us, to produce a design which perfectly matched our needs and budget. The end result turned out perfect, and was completed 2 weeks earlier than we expected.
The Stroud Coffs team ensured we were actively engaged throughout the build and made us feel an integral part of the process. Having two young children it was awesome to see their excitement as they watched our home being built from vacant block, to signing their names in the slab, right through to the ultimate excitement of handover day.
Throughout the build quality tradesmen adorned our site, who took pride in their site and workmanship, and whom spoke fondly of the Stroud Coffs team.
We highly (and actively!) recommend the Stroud Coffs Harbour team of Yarren, Erin, Darby and Jake to anyone looking to build on the Coffs Coast.
