Grant and his team were so professional and easy to work with from start to finish. Every step was well thought out and organised resulting in a high quality build that was completed on schedule. We couldn’t be happier with our home and would highly recommend GMH.

I’ve had a good deal of experience with builders and understand the value of finding an exceptional one. Our first duplex project on the Sunshine Coast has been a resounding success, with the built form far exceeding my expectations in both quality and timeframe. Grant possesses a unique creative mind and is an excellent problem solver. He's not only honest and a master of his craft, but he's also an outstanding communicator. For me, this is priceless as it has made the entire process a pleasure. I've personally recommended Grant to several individuals who have since embarked on their own projects with him. I've recently engaged Grant and his team once again for another duplex project and look forward to a long and prosperous relationship.

We had a great experience in building our dream house with Grant. We decided on GMH after reading their online reviews and through word of mouth references of their reputation in the area.

Grant was very professional, honest, prompt, helpful and passionate with his work. He devoted his time to us from day one, guiding us throughout and listening to all of our concerns, being first time home builders.

We highly recommend Grant. We didn’t have any issues during the build process and will love to build an investment house with him in the future.

New home in Sunshine Beach

My wife and I have built three homes previously. As anyone who has built before knows full well, it is always a bit of a journey !

Most recently we embarked on our first duplex development - so an extra degree of complexity was involved. We are so fortunate to have engaged Grant as our builder. From the very first meeting to the final handover, Grant has been exceptionally polite, professional and a pleasure to work with. The quality of the build is exceptional and all of the tradies we met during the process were of similar nature to Grant - really nice, polite, respectful and professional, with a "can-do" attitude. We cannot recommend a builder more highly than Grant, and we look forward to working with him again in the future - he is without doubt the best builder we have ever engaged and the professionalism (and quality) of his work speaks for itself.

Bayonne Close pool and house, Little MountainFirstly, we’d like to start by saying a huge thank you to Grant and his phenomenal team on building our dream home. Not only did you exceed all of our expectations but now we couldn’t imagine living anywhere else!

We have always wanted to build a home and as this was our very first build there was a little trepidation in deciding who to partner with. We really wanted to find a builder who we could trust, that had local knowledge and loved the location and design as much as we did. We engaged an incredibly talented designer and we asked him which builders he would recommend to bring the design to life. Without hesitation he provided a glowing endorsement of Grant.

We decided to meet with Grant onsite and were both shocked at how approachable, professional and engaging Grant was. He asked us questions and really listened to the answers. After the meeting, my wife and I looked at each other and both said ‘yep, he’s our guy.’

Now to be brutally honest, there were some challenges along the way. Mother nature decided to meet us with a third consecutive la Nina right at the time of the site cut and foundations. We also decided to build in a difficult time for the building industry in terms of cost and availability of supply. Despite all of these challenges Grant was engaged and proactively communicated with us regularly, so we weren’t left guessing. He put our minds at ease and expertly coordinated with our designer and certifier as one unified team. No question was ever too big or small and Grants approach put us completely at ease. So many people told us about the stressful experience of building a house but our experience was so very different.

We are so grateful for our stunning home that has been so expertly crafted. The attention to detail, thought and care that has gone into it is evident and it continues to take our breath away. All that is left is to enjoy our home as a family. Would we ever build again? Sure, but only if Grant builds it.

Coolum home


"It goes without saying that building a new home can be a very daunting process for most. The amount of organization and decisions to make on the design, let alone all the fittings etc almost brings the most diehard new home owner to their knees.

Whilst it was our second time round building a new home, we have unfortunately known many people who tell difficult and sometimes heartbreaking stories about their home building experiences.

The decision to build with Grant was, without saying, made extremely easy after the first couple of meetings to discuss the construction of our new house at Coolum. At all times from initial meeting to handover of our new house Grant was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Offering prompt service, excellent communication & careful time management of materials and trades, Grant made the whole experience very easy and more importantly enjoyable. He is a true craftsman at his trade and it flows over in his ability to put your mind at ease during the construction process.

We are very happy with our beautiful home that Grant McDonald built for us at Coolum and would be more than happy to offer a personal recommendation at any time. If you are looking to build a new home, please make every effort to contact Grant. It was one of the best decisions that we have made. Can’t wait for build number three..."

Sara and Lang Semmler


Our house was designed with a few different touches, so it was important to us that is was built right. With Grant’s extensive knowledge and expertise, we were confident that he could do the job. Grant was always available to answer any questions and he was flexible if we wanted to make any changes along the way, it was smooth sailing from start to finish. Grant’s professional approach and enthusiasm meant that we could trust him to build our special house, which we are very grateful for.

"When my wife and I and our young family moved to the Sunshine Coast we bought a home previously built by Grant and his team. We were very impressed with the build quality of the home and we always said that if we ever decided to build a new home, we would build with Grant McDonald Homes. And that’s exactly what we did. It was a seamless process from start to finish. From the initial concept stage to the completion handover, Grant was involved every step of the way and being a custom built home we made some changes along the way, however nothing was too much trouble.

Grant’s team were sensational, very dedicated and passionate about delivering a quality product. His selection of the various tradespeople used to construct our home cannot be faulted, courteous, respectful and willing to go that extra mile. We love our new home and if we ever decide to build again we would have no hesitation in engaging Grant and his team again as we know that a quality home will be delivered on budget and on time."

"Our design of the house was magic so Emi and I wanted to find a builder who could handle this project in stride and work along with us. The project was in Buderim, but we were living in Melbourne due to work commitments. We wanted a builder that was reliable and honest and we didn't want the hassles of problems that usually go along with building. We chose Grant McDonald Homes out of 10 builders due to his dynamic energy and eagerness. He was also very price competitive.

We were glad we chose Grant McDonald as during the whole building process I only came up to the Sunshine Coast only twice, once to kick off the project and the other time was to move into the house. We had an independent inspector who also sent us regular photos of each stage and praised Grant for his efforts.

We had built twice before so we had built up some experience, but the real difference we noted is that Grant McDonald paid real attention to detail, and he really listened and endeavoured to make sure that what you wanted, he built it! This was so important to us to have a builder that you could solely rely on. Thank you once again Grant, we would not hesitate to choose you again."

"On behalf of my wife Christine and our extended family ( seven of us ) I would like to both thank and congratulate Grant and his complete team for presenting us with a truly unique and spectular canal home at Minyama.

Grant has surrounded himself with a fantastic team of employees and contractors. All of the tradies who worked on our project achieved the highest standards. Their work ethics are highly reptuable and greatly appreciated. I saw guys pull things up to do again as 'THEY' weren't happy with the finish, things that weren't noticeable until pointed out. This pride in their finished product really delivered us something above and beyond expectations.

From the beginning with a great conceptual team and fantastic interior design consultant all the way through to the finishing touches, nothing was too much trouble and was achieved promptly. Grant delivered us a house of over 600 square meters which was far removed from a standard design due in part to the irregular shape of our land in under 9 months, we couldn't be happier.
From start to finish there were multiple changes made, sometimes innitiated by Grant himself or the design team, as things often change in the real world as a build takes shape. None of the many changes which we made appeared insurmountable or were too much trouble to accomodate.

I honestly feel Grant built our house as if it were his own, and the build quality speaks for itself. Our new house certainly stands out and everyone who comes through the house is blown away.  We could not recommended Grant and his team highly enough to anyone who is after a HOME well above the house which many are expected to accept and the heartaches which follow."

All the best  - Greg and Chris White. 

"Having built twice previously, our decision to build again at Peregian Springs was not taken lightly, as we were prepared for the usual frustrations and stresses which are often talked about. After signing a contract with Grant McDonald Homes we were pleasantly surprised to find the whole building process from beginning to end was an enjoyable, easy, and sometimes exciting experience.

We find it difficult to put into words just how professional, helpful and easy to communicate with Grant was through the whole process. His tradespeople were also extremely professional and very willing to attend to any changes we required. We love our new home which has been much admired by visiting friends and we very highly recommend Grant McDonald Homes to anyone wanting a pleasant, professional building experience and quality finish to their home."

Tony and Sandy Shield

"I would recommend Grant McDonald Homes without reservation to anyone looking for a quality builder who pays attention to detail and to his clients needs. Grant was by my side the whole time, by way of phone calls, keeping the construction on schedule, etc. Thank you for your patience with me:) Grant has also helped with recommendations and wasted no time in attending to a few extra construction jobs I wanted completed, can’t wait for the extensions!!!"

Dearne Hemmings

"I would like to express my sincere thanks to Grant McDonald and his team of guys for the exception job they did in the construction of my new home.

Nothing was ever too much trouble for Grant. I found Grant, a person of the utmost integrity, to be extremely conscientious, considerate, thoughtful and attentive regarding all matters. I would highly recommend Grant's services to anyone seeking not only excellence concerning any building matters but also honest business relations that are amicably and harmoniously conducted. I cannot thank Grant enough for the highly efficient manner in which he handled all dealings from the time of our initial contact until the final settlement of the property and beyond.

Thank you Grant for your constant feedback, upfront honesty and commitment that helped me in achieving an outstanding finished result with no compromise. I look forward to using your service on my next build."

Matt Glynn

"Grants guidance, enthusiasm, knowledge and innovative ideas made building our new home a wonderful experience. He was professional yet easy going, nothing was a problem. All the tradesmen were friendly and pleasant to deal with and the standard of workmanship was excellent from start to finish. The organisation was like clockwork and our home was finished ahead of schedule. We will build again, and we will build with Grant McDonald Homes."
