Custom Home Designs

We’ll help you create a beautiful custom home design so you can hire a builder of your choice to construct it.

If you have a vision of designing and building a custom home which is uniquely your own, you have two ways of going about it:

Option 1

Work with a home builder

You can either choose to modify one of their existing home plans to suit your needs or request that they design you a custom home entirely from scratch.
  • Locked into using the builder who designed your plans

  • You won’t be able to shop around & get quotes from other builders

  • It can be very costly to make changes to your plans after construction has commenced

Regardless of which option you choose, the end result will be the construction of your dream home. However, the problem with going with Option 1 is that you will be locked into using the builder who designed your plans. You won’t be able to shop around and get quotes from different builders, as the builder you have engaged technically owns your plans.

Additionally, if you want to make changes to your plans after construction has commenced, it can become very costly to do so due to variation fees. Getting your floor plans to a point where you are completely happy with them is extremely important.

For you to be able to stay in control of your construction costs, you need to own the plans for your custom home. So if you’d like to have greater flexibility and freedom throughout the building process, it can be well worth you while to approach a custom home designer instead.

Design 360 are specialists in custom home designs

Whether you’re building your very first home, or you’ve been around the block a few times, the team at Design 360 will walk you through the design and certification phase of construction.

If you have a unique vision in mind for your new home, we will take your vision and put it on paper in the form of completed floor plans. You will have ownership over these plans and will be free to approach any builder that you like for construction quotes.

We’ll also work with you to ensure that you are happy with every single tiny detail of your home prior to construction. Our aim when designing any home is to always take the unique properties of your land into account. We will also make suggestions on how to best ‘future proof’ the design so you will love your home in the now and in the future. This dedicated approach will help eliminate the need for costly variations down the line.

Colour and Design Studio

Deciding on every single detail when designing a custom home can be an extremely time consuming process. You might spend hours and hours across multiple weekends going from tile shop to paint shop to bathroom shop to appliance shop and still not find what you’re looking for.

At Design 360, we want to make the experience as easy as we can for you.

To help you bring your new dream home from concept to reality, we have developed a Colour and Design studio at our head office in North Lakes. This studio contains everything you need to finalise the design details of your custom home – all in the one convenient place.

At our Colour and Design studio, you’ll find a huge range of samples showcasing options for:

  • Tapware
  • Toilets
  • Basins
  • Tiles
  • Carpets
  • Timber flooring
  • Cabinetry
  • Appliance
  • Internal doors
  • Handles
  • Wardrobe sliders
  • Wardrobe inserts
  • Trims
  • Architrave
  • Skirting
  • Bricks
  • Garage doors
  • Paint colours
  • Fascias and gutters
  • Roof tiles
  • COLORBOND® steel

Our design consultants will help you narrow down your choices. And if you’ve already selected a builder to construct your custom home, they can visit the studio with you and be a part of this  process too.

Life Size Plan Walkthroughs

In addition to our Colour and Design Studio, Design 360 also offers Life Size Plan Walkthroughs. Utilising the latest technology, your floor plans will be projected onto the floor of our custom-built, 665m2 studio in their exact dimensions.

You (and your builder if you’ve hired one) can walk around on the projection to really get a feel for the layout and evaluate every single detail before signing off on your completed plans. If you’re not completely happy with something, changes to the layout can be made on the spot and displayed instantly on the projection.

Want to see how things look if you were to swap around the positions of the master and guest bedrooms? No problem. How about removing the wall between the living and dining areas? Easy!

Deciding on such changes during the design phase will save you both time and money on variations needing to be made during the construction phase.
