We have had two homes built by Peter and have been very pleased with the process and result on both occasions.
The first house was in North Lakes (28 Lochside Drive) and was our first experience at having a home built from scratch. We contacted Peter following a referral from a friend, and found him to be very helpful with the planning and costing process.
The build was completed quickly and we were very pleased with the quality of the result. In particular it was great to be able to interact directly with Peter and his building team during construction to make minor changes along the way.
We sold this property after 10 trouble-free years. Even after this time, the excellent build quality was commented on by the purchaser’s building inspector, and this helped to complete an early sale of the property.
We had no hesitation in contacting Peter for the build of our next home. Again he was most helpful with the planning, design and budgeting.
The build went smoothly, despite some challenging weather, and the overall result was excellent. Again the entire team of builders was very helpful and Peter was always available for consultation about progress and modifications.
We would highly recommend Peter to anyone contemplating building their own home. He runs his business very professionally while maintaining friendly interaction with his clients during the entire process.

Karen and I wanted to express our gratitude and heartfelt appreciation for everything you have done for us with the construction of our amazing house. It is now eleven months since we have moved into our house and we love our house even more each day that we spend in it.
We truly appreciate the time you took to sit down with us in the planning stage prior to construction and the fact that you answered every question we had, of which there were many, and answered everything to our satisfaction. Planning to build our first home at first seemed such a daunting and stressful task until you explained all the steps and processes involved in construction which made it so much easier for us.
Karen and I knew you were the right builder for us when you explained that you would not build the balcony in our house with horizontal wire cable, noting it was a safety hazard for children and that you are a father, but would find someone else to complete the work if that was what we still wanted. Your integrity in this matter certainly made us reconsider and change our mind about the requirement so that our home is now safer for children and we are forever grateful for this.
Your regular contact and meetings during construction and ongoing support with post building inspections means a lot to us and we certainly have no hesitation whatsoever in building with you again in future. Karen and I also regularly recommend your construction services to our family and friends when they come to view our incredible home. A number of our guests have commented that our house looks like a resort and that the finish quality of the house constructions is amazing.
Thank you again Peter for everything that you have accomplished with the completion of our house. We have no regrets at all with our decision to have you build our beautiful home and we will continue to enjoy it for many more years to come. Karen and I look forward to using your services for any future construction requirements.

Peter Jones Construction of Elimbah built our 2 ½ storey home, an architect-designed house as we wanted to create a home for us that combines environmentally friendly living and modern materials with a notion of old Queensland design. Special elements include a feature staircase in the central atrium, which is crowned by operable skylights to generate a natural air flow.
The first floor, which is the main living area, has 3 m high ceilings complete with high slim windows and 2.4 m high doors, including a wide cavity sliding door to create a semi open-plan living room. And of course, the mezzanine level with a step-out balcony to enjoy the amazing view over Moreton Bay. Everyting went according to budget and plan – or even better – and we are very happy in our new home, which is much admired by family, friends and neighbours, some of whom are builders themselves.
From early on we were impressed by Peter’s way to manage the project, his skills and high standards, which gave us the best possible feeling about the quality of our new home. Even before the house was finished, we contacted the Master Builders Association of Queensland to nominate Peter Jones Constructions for a Masterbuilder Excellence Award.
It has really been a pleasure to build with Peter, and this house was not the first one. We had designed a cottage in 1998, and Peter built it much to our liking. The house he finished for us in October last year had ten times the budget of the first one, and we were very pleased with the result. There were no major headaches at all, in fact we found that with the minor issues that arose, Peter was the person who always found a solution. And, the potentially major issues, which we brought in with our architect-designed plans, Peter spottet straight away so that structural redesigning solved problems before they occurred. So, no patch-ups as everything was done properly from the beginning on.
With Peter we felt we were in safe hands that handled these problems with calm professionalism. Clear communication, an excellent level of organisation and the ability to anticipate and, thus, to avoid potential problems before they even arise, that is Peter’s great strength. This house was the biggest investment we ever made, and we felt at all times during the nearly seven months building period that our investment was in safe hands.
We believe Peter deserves a 10 out of 10 rating for every step of the building process, from inception meeting to handover and maintenance period. The finished product exceeds our expectations and we will certainly recommend building with Peter Jones
