pondering project homes


Marcus Bortolussi, senior sales consultant atBellmarch Homes: “A project home is an individual house based on a display home, sales brochure or pre-existing design. The repeatable design can be easily tailored to suit the needs of the client and site.”

Phil Haigh, director of sales at McDonald Jones Homes: “Project homes are one of the most affordable and uncomplicated ways to build new. Often referred to as ‘offthe- plan’ builders, project home builders offer a range of home designs and options to help you tailor your new home to your unique needs and lifestyle. For some builders, including McDonald Jones Homes, they are a one-stop shop to choose and create the perfect home for your family plus all the little extras that complement your tastes and the way you love to live — from roof colour and paint to kitchen appliances and lighting, and everything in between.”

Natalie O’Shea, building designer at Hotondo Homes: “Project homes, or homes built by a volume builder, are predetermined house designs that usually have an affordable price attached to them.”

Adrian Popple, design director at Metricon: “The term ‘project home’ is not one that we hear very often anymore, but generally it means a home built with a volume builder. A project home builder offers home buyers a set of pre-designed home plans to choose from. This is an alternative to commissioning an architect to design a home to your exact specifications.”
