About Us

Builder, Michael McVeigh started working at a very young age on his parents dairy farm. He gained a very good work ethic from this experience, and has carried it through his life in many ways.

Michael has carried this work ethic with him, along with an uncompromising desire to satisfy every client with great service and quality. He has close to 30 years experience and knowledge of the building industry as both builder and construction manager. He established McVeigh Homes in 2000. He has a solid reputation and a number of clients who keep coming back to have their second – and third homes built by Michael.

McVeigh Homes is a family business. Michael’s wife, Cathy manages the office so that everything runs smoothly. She also liaises with clients if necessary. Cathy and Michael’s sons are both carpenters and work for the business, along with a group of trusted subcontractors who’ve been working with the McVeigh’s for many years.

Michael is very approachable, gives practical advice, problem-solves early and offers great flexibility during the building process. In his words, “I meet regularly on-site with clients, this allows flexibility if changes are necessary. For example, many people find it difficult to visualise the house plan. A change to the window/door position or even lighting can often be made at the right stage of the job at very little cost for a much better result overall” .

He also likes a challenge and is known around Brisbane for his ability to tackle the steepest slope (literally!), having built houses of up to six stories high on steep blocks with limited access.

McVeigh homes choose to build an average of 5- 6 homes a year, which means when you build with Michael, you can be assured of a happy and personalised experience.

“In building with Michael, we have never encountered a problem that could not be solved in a sensible and timely manner. Michael and his team make building easy.”
