House of the Year Builder Sets Sights on Sunshine Coast Home Market

The builder who has taken out the Wide Bay region’s House of the Year is now setting his sights on transforming the Sunshine Coast hinterland home market.

Gibson Building is nearing completion on a Verrierdale home that is set to be the talk of the town, complete with a shipping container pool and a modern eco-design that will shift the mid-range luxury home market on the Sunshine Coast.

Owner Kieran Gibson, said their design and build of new homes was turning heads in the region.

“When we’re planning a new custom home build for a client, we favour functional environmental design – design that is sympathetic to the shape, size and orientation of the block of land, dictated by the direction of the sun, shade and breeze,” said Mr Gibson.

“We’ve also partnered with suppliers including a pool builder who uses recycled shipping containers for above ground pools – which is both functional and environmentally friendly, but also adds a unique element to the property that people haven’t seen before.”

A multi-award winning home builder, Gibson Building took out the House of the Year award for Queensland’s Wide Bay region at this month’s HIA Housing Awards for a statement home in Agnes Water.

“The grand ‘Hamptons Style’ home is inspiring in design with faultless quality detailing throughout,” he said.

He hopes the Verrierdale home in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland will be the next home in contention for the prestigious HIA Award once complete.

“We really focus on a unique style of home that is designed and built to suit the type and location of the land, which varies for every client,” said Mr Gibson.

“There is definitely a gap in the market for custom design and build services on the Sunshine Coast. This region has a distinctive character and climate that can be reflected in contemporary home design with the right understanding and approach.”
