Helensvale Luxury Lifestyle Build
Howdy Christine! I thought I’d let you know how we’re enjoying our newly renovated home.
You’ve completely transformed a 21-year old tired home into something fresh and ultra-modern. We’re over the moon about how each and every room turned out: From my daughter’s pretty and spacious teenage bedroom to the luxurious powder room. The renovated facade and roof has given the home a complete makeover, it feels brand new. We couldn’t be happier.
The inclusion of a deck, pool and spa has brought us endless delight, especially during this time stuck outdoors! It’s changed our style of living and allowed us to enjoy stunning sunrises, sunsets and meals outside. Thanks to this gorgeous space, we’re now keen butterflies and bird watchers, and have even seen bush turkeys and kangaroos in our midst!
It truly is the perfect family home. The new home office, kitchenette, bathroom and large games room were invaluable during COVID isolation. The ceiling to floor cupboards in the office and games room especially made family time with the kids so easy and mess-free.
The extension has meant we’ve scored a small interior courtyard, where it’s a pleasure to sit back, relax and observe our daily bird visitors. We also have room for our gorgeous piano, which is finally getting used now it is in an easy-to-access area in the home. The addition of stackable doors and large new windows means that our home is always full of fresh and air and plenty of sunlight.
The renovation and extension has completely transformed the activities of our daily lives. It’s fabulous and we are so pleased!

After spending close to a year in the planning and building of our very first “dream” home, Tim and I pleased to say that we remain on excellent terms with Jeremy and Christine and that is more a testament to their patience than ours. Their careful planning, strong building experience, excellent software system, attention to detail and flexibility helped us to navigate through our first build and makes Jeremy and Christine a formidable building team! They work with great contractors who were equally obliging (when I kept changing my mind) and their experience allowed us to avoid some of the pitfalls that could have easily occurred with a build of this size and scale.
We absolutely LOVE our finished house and we still pinch ourselves every morning when we wake up in such an amazing home. Everything about is exactly what we wanted. We would highly recommend Jeremy, Christine and their Team and would build with them again if we ever have the opportunity. Thank you Team McGowan!
John & Jan – Upper Coomera, Qld
We were very pleased with the support and recommendations supplied by Jeremy and McGowan Homes. They provided us with a home that suited us in downsizing from from a 4 bedroom home on a large block of land to a comfortable 3 bedroom architecturally designed home on a very small more manageable block of land. The layout of the house and exterior landscaping suites us, as a couple in our 70’s, perfectly. The block of land was a difficult block to build on as it was a size of 280sqm and it had an 20sqm easement. Our home has been built with not one bit of the land wasted and Jeremy was considerate of our future needs and understood we needed to have level access around the house.
Our home was designed and built with energy efficient products to save us expensive heating and cooling costs through the seasons. Jeremy’s communication and attention to detail throughout the project was of very high standard.
McGowan Homes entered our home into the HIA Awards and won 2014 HIA Gold Coast / Northern Rivers Housing Awards: Custom Built Homes up to $300,000 and was also a Finalist 2014 HIA Gold Coast / Northern Rivers Housing Awards: Custom Built Homes.
We have no hesitation in highly recommending Jeremy and the McGowan Homes team to build a quality custom built home.
John & Robyn – Runaway Bay, Qld
Jeremy and his team worked with us to realise our vision in what can only be described as a difficult build. The finished product was very close to how we originally described what we wanted. This was made possible by the continual communication at every stage to ensure the meeting of our needs. Attention to detail with an eye for the aesthetic requirements stood out in the way the project was carried out. Having used many builders over the years we have no hesitation in recommending McGowan Homes or utilizing their services again.
Hilary – Hope Island, Qld
Having recently finished our build with McGowan Homes, I would like to commend Jeremy and Christine for making the process easy and enjoyable. Jeremy would always answered my questions promptly, was willing to meet me at my convenience and the quality and workmanship of the build was excellent. Both Jeremy and Christine made me feel like a valued customer and kept me in the loop at all stages of the build. I particularly liked the software that they use which makes communication between the builder and client really transparent and meant that I clearly knew my responsibilities and deadlines for making decisions as well as what progress Jeremy was making on a day to day or week to week basis. I would highly recommend McGowan homes and would use them myself in the future should the opportunity arise.
Paul & Leanne – Mt Gravatt, Qld
The team at McGowan Building Services helped transform our three bedroom post-war home into a spacious and contemporary house that we love coming home to. Throughout the building process Jeremy and his team were always patient and courteous , and changes along the way were never a hassle. Where there were matters that needed clarification, these were dealt with promptly and without fuss or delay to the project.
During the project we were most impressed by the professionalism and care demonstrated by Jeremy and Christine from McGowan Building. Jeremy certainly has an eye for detail, and he offered many suggestions along the way to help us create something very special, and not just another standard renovation.
The workmanship of Jeremy and his team was always of a high standard, and we are very happy with the build quality of our new extension and deck. The follow up service from McGowan Building has also been very good and any minor maintenance required has been dealt with promptly.
We are confident in recommending the team at McGowan Building for any renovation requirements, and am sure that they will continue to deliver quality workmanship and attention to detail on all their projects.
Edward & Angela – Coomera Waters, Qld
Choosing a builder is always big decision. There are a lot of ‘horror stories’ out there and our apprehension was certainly very real.
Without doubt we were so pleased we chose McGowan Building Services. Jeremy and Christine combine their skill sets to ensure a smooth process and a quality result.
Right from the beginning of our renovation, McGowan Building demonstrated support and professionalism in helping us through the murky waters of insurance claims. Without their ongoing communication with our Insurers we would never have got this completed. We had been 12 months trying to sort it out and they expedited the process smoothly and efficiently.
We were very happy with the quality of the workmanship. Jeremy supervised his team on a daily basis and ensured that the job was of the highest standards throughout every phase. This included structural repairs, waterproofing, tiling, gyprocking and painting. He insisted the site was left clean every day!! Can you believe that?
The back office operations were excellent. Communication was unambiguous, timely and straight forward.
If you are seeking high quality, stress free processes and a high quality result, we highly recommend McGowan Building Services for your next building project. These guys are rare!
Damien & Stacey – Coomera Waters, Qld
My wife and I recently engaged Jeremy, Christine and the team of McGowan Building Services to do an extension of our residence on the Gold Coast. The project consisted of building in a deck to form an extra bedroom and some slight remodelling of the upper level… or so we thought.
What evolved was the requirement of some major structural upgrades, fitting of a fully ducted air-conditioning system, all new internal doors and a complete internal revamp of our home. McGowan Building Services provided patient and accurate consulting advice on all aspects of the building works and acted well beyond their contract terms in liaison and consulting with the engineer and designer. As for the workmanship demonstrated, having been involved in the building and construction industry myself for some 25 odd years in South East Queensland, I was extremely impressed with the commitment to doing the job right and the intelligent suggestions along the way.
Any additions required were dealt with in a transparent manner and we found all fees and charges to be extremely fair.
This commitment to quality and customer service (that sadly is no longer the norm out in the world) has resulted in our expectations being exceeded on every level and we would have no hesitation in recommending Jeremy, Christine and their team and will most certainly be engaging them for our planned future work.
Tom & Bec – Coomera Waters, QLD
We want to thank Jeremy and his McGowan Building Services team for the completion of the projects at our property.
We’re really happy with the quality of the completed study works and replacement of the sliding door with the garage door, and appreciated the completion of these works so quickly.
We’re also very grateful for Jeremy’s advice, professionalism and efficiency in helping us to resolve the issues that we found with our deck not long after the other works started.
The scope on these repairs was so much bigger than the original works, but was still completed in the original works’ timeframe.
Jeremy clearly has an eye for detail and a drive to produce only the best end product, which means the very few issues we raised were dealt with immediately, or even resolved before we’d noticed them in the first place.
We’ll happily recommend McGowan Building Services to all our friends and Jeremy will be the first person we call for any future works.
Gary – Lake Macquarie, NSW
McGowan Building Services built my house on Lake Macquarie which has since won MBA and HIA building awards plus an architectural award.
The construction was difficult on a steep rocky site with many access problems plus the designs own difficulties such as the incorporation of a lift and 3m cantilevered concrete balconies.
Jeremy’s problem solving abilities and eye for detail has overcome these problems and achieved an excellent result and I would not hesitate in recommending McGowan Building Services.
Claudia – Manly, NSW
Jeremy and Christine McGowan are an incredible team to work with. My building project was to build a new three storey home almost from scratch, including new pool, garage and water feature. Having already built a home previously I knew the stress of this kind of project. However with McGowan Building in control the project was so smooth and considerably less stress.
Jeremy and Christine are meticulous both on and offsite. They are attentive, efficient and a pleasure to deal with. They build your home like it was their own, with a focus on quality yet always conscious of cost. I was consulted at every stage and if problems arose Jeremy would sort numerous solutions and present them to us for a course of action.
Once the project was complete, both Jeremy and Christine were always available for questions or to visit the site if required.
I have no hesitations in recommending them for building works, so much so that I would definitely enlist their services for my next project.
Clark – MacMasters Beach, NSW
McGowan Building Services undertook a major renovation to our beach house at Macmasters Beach. Our project encountered some challenges along the way, with some major short comings revealed in the previous construction once the existing walls and floor boards were removed.
Jeremy managed our project excellently.
The quality and care taken throughout the project built a strong trusted relationship between builder and client. His advice was considered and tailored to our needs.
We are extremely pleased with our “new” house and would have no hesitation in recommending McGowan as a builder of the highest quality.
