Making the most of a steep block at Cashmere – see this incredible home being built

May 16, 2018
Peter Jones Constructions

We are always up to a challenge, so when the clients brought their sketch plan to me to quote, I thought what a great home this will be, but gee there will be lots of work to get this home to its full potential.

But I’m definitely up for it!!


During the design processes, to minimize site cut, the home has been designed to have 5 different levels to work with the slope of the land. The advantages are that all the bedrooms and living area are on the same level, leading onto a massive alfresco overlooking a nature reserve.

We started with this slope…..

and ended up with this amazing home……



Follow the numbers to follow the construction progress:

1 – Site cut is underway.

2 – With the steep site – there were a few retaining walls that needed to be built before we could proceed. These are up now and looking great.
A couple of massive weeks ahead getting to floor stage.

3 – Plumbers are getting the underslab drainage in ready for foundations.

4 – Massive day getting the footings and steel columns in – ready for the raised floor.

5 – The garage here has an intergrated retaining wall that needs blocks laid before we can pour the slab. As the garage will be 1 metre higher than the living area.

6 – Slab has been prepared – ready to pour.

7 – Carpenters have got a massive job ahead of them now, as there was over 20 tonnes of timber delivered (not including the roof trusses). Will be a wonderfully big home when it is completed!

8 – Carpenters have got the frame going along great.
It has been a massive job but with eight carpenters on site, all working well together, we have got through it quite fast.

9 – Job went from a massive pile of trusses on the ground to all being stood by lunch time. Well done team!

10 – It really give the home some shape with the skillion roofs at the front, going to a standard hip roof at the rear.

Ready for roof measure – can’t wait til the roof is on!

11 – Scaffolding going up ready for roofers – but what wonderful weather we are having for roofing a house?! Pretty sure the roof will be next week now.

12 – Frame is complete – roof is on – windows and sarking are installed. This is where we got to before Xmas.

13 – First job back after xmas and started installing cladding. There are some colourbond feature panels yet to be installed.

14 – Plasterers are working away – there is a lot of work to be completed in a home this size.

15 – The living areas and hall in this home have 140mm x 19mm Spotted Gum Tongue and Grove flooring – this is laid over the top of the particle board floor. It will get sanded and polished at the completion of the job and will look absolutely awesome.

16 – Flooring has been laid – looks awesome – the polish gets done after all the trades are finished.

17 – Guys from Aspen Cabinets are installing the cabinetry – the kitchen looks out a massive bi-fold door straight onto the deck.

18 – Tilers are working away – doing another great job.
The tile clips being used for the porcelain rectified edge tiles bring them to a perfectly flat surface on top – creating an awesome job.

19 – Outside is coming up a treat – will look amazing once the scaffolding comes down.
Decking to be laid is next on the list of jobs to be completed. Can’t wait to see that!

20 – Tiling is now complete – all the wet areas are tiled to the ceiling with large porcelain tiles. The kitchen splash back tiles are massive being 1.2m x .6m – these are the largest tiles we have laid to date.

21 – Timber stairs are now in – the home is now ready to be painted inside. Will follow soon with some inside pictures.

22 – I love this house – what a deck to be entertaining on.

23 – Picture of each end of the house – this gives an idea of the slope of the block.

24 – Home is now completed – looks amazing. Well done to all the team. Some photos of outside. Deck is fantastic!

25 – Amazing home finished – some photos of completed inside.

Beautiful Golden Beach Home For Return Clients Completed

November 30, 2017
Peter Jones Constructions

It was great to build for these wonderful clients again. This was the second home I have built for them.

This being low set and a bit smaller than their last home.


Their new home has a massive family / dining / kitchen area,

with the alfresco overlooking the pool.

It has three bedrooms with a study and an enormous ensuite with spa.

All within easy walking distance to Pumicestone Passage and Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast.


This is a beautiful home – see it being built ………..

1 – Below is the original block and then the site being prepared for the slab.

2 – Being a narrow block, the pool had to be built before the slab was poured. So the pool builders worked on the shell before the house was even started.  With the ground being so sandy and having a high water table, the pool builders had a great deal of trouble.

3 – This job progressed swiftly so here are just a selection of photos showing you the progress.

4 – This home is continuing to progress quickly, so following are a few more photos showing the progress.

5 – As you can see the house is looking great – clients couldn’t wait to move in and we were not that far from being finished – it’s going to be a beautiful house when it’s completed.
Tilers starting soon.

6 – House is nearing completion – concretors are getting the drive way ready.


7 – This appealing home is really near completion. Here are a few photos showing how fabulous it is looking inside.

8 – So near completion – a few of the outside photos.

9 – Here it is completed – wow it looks great and the clients are so happy to be spending Christmas here – creating more memories in their new home.  Enjoy!

Elimbah Outdoors Family Home

April 21, 2016
Peter Jones Constructions

Elimbah family love their outdoors home

This great family home was designed to maximize their large block and their love of the outdoors.


Another Custom Built Home by Peter Jones Constructions

The Story of the Build

The Customer Story

Peter -1

The client had two main priorities – maximizing their huge block of land at Elimbah with a house which would cater for their 6 children and making the outdoors seem to come inside.  This was readily achieved using Peter’s expertise and creativity.  Peter built a 7 bedroom, 3 bathroom and 3 separate living area home.  This allowed everyone to have their own space, but also allowed the client plenty of room for the pool, shed and boys toys.

Peter -3

The central point of this home is the kitchen and living room. Bi-fold doors have been installed which when fully opened allows the outdoor area to be part of the home.

Peter -2

The client has been thrilled with this outside/inside area as the fly-screens fully protect everyone in the evening when the adults are enjoying some refreshments and the children are playing in the pool.
