Building Dream Homes

When Damion and Rachael Jabs came to Brook Designer Homes, they wanted to create a home that encapsulated their desire to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The wide-open spaces, beautiful views and quiet village lifestyle of Samsonvale, located just forty minutes north of Brisbane, provided the ideal location for the couple and their son to call home.

Having found the perfect block of land, building the perfect home was their next challenge. The couple planned for a functional home that provides easy living and spacious entertainment areas for family and friends.

With a site footprint in excess of 730m2 this modern home, currently under construction, includes three bedrooms, a guest suite, media room, playroom, kitchen, scullery and a massive alfresco entertainment area that is close to 90m2.

Due for completion soon, Damion and Rachael talk about their experience with Brooks Designer Homes.

Damion and Rachael JabsWhat did you want to achieve in your dream home?

We wanted to achieve a total package of Functionality, Design & Lifestyle throughout the entire house.

Having the house fall into a usable design model in all areas was key to the success of the design. As we were not restricted by standard property boundaries, we could achieve our goals for the house.

Did your final design reflect this or did it change along the journey?

The design put forward to Brooks Designer homes was basically a finished product. In saying this, we have been flexible within the building process to best achieve the final product, as a design on paper is not always a functional option when building the house.

The team at Brooks Designer Homes work through any design speed bump and come up with the best building solution to achieve the same end product.

How does your home reflect your lifestyle?

We like the outdoor life. Enjoying the natural surroundings as well as some fun time.

We have included a large outdoor living area and pool into the design with an easy flow concept from either the kitchen or games room onto the outdoor and pool areas.

What have you learnt from your previous homes?

The main thing we have learnt is that space inside your home needs to be used to its maximum. Plenty of open areas in the living sections with the availability of a private, quiet relaxing zone for the bedrooms areas.

Where possible keep the living and sleeping areas as disconnected from each other as you can.

What part of the home was your indulgence and why?

We were able to expand our living experience as much as possible with the design of the house.

We have a large Kitchen and Family Room area, which flows onto the Outdoor Living Space and links across to the Games Room.

These three Living / Entertaining Areas are bordered by the pool.

To keep things cleaner and more functional, we have a Butlers Pantry off the Kitchen, which also connects to the Outdoor Living Area through a servery style window.  The design was based around the option to live outside more but stay connected to the house without feeling like we were in two totally different areas.

Did you enjoy the experience of working with Brooks Designer Homes?

The experience that we have had has indeed been great.

If so, why?

We have built before but it was not as enjoyable as this build. Matt, Darren and the whole Team at Brooks Designer Homes have been easy to deal with at all Stages throughout the build.

The knowledge that the guys have in the industry shows in all parts of the building process. This is not just another knock them up and gets the money kind of builder.

They invest in the project and do everything they can to make the journey of building easier for the owners.

Care and attention to their project is evident. Qualities that, are hard to find these days.

In three words, how would you describe Brook’s Designer Homes?

  • Quality: build and finishing
  • Accessible: always there for the client
  • Grounded:¬†family orientated private builder
