Michael McVeigh was referred to me by three colleagues whose opinion I valued, one saying “you will not be sorry and you will not get any surprises.”
I found Michael to be easy to relate with, communicated regularly daily/weekly, and kept me fully informed with any difficulties and suggestions, which he had many that improved the finished product. He was on site every day personally to inspect previous days work and fully inform everyone what he wanted from them that day. That resulted in a fault free finished home. What impressed me most was the meticulous planning Michael does, booking relevant contractors up to a month ahead and ensured they were on site exactly when he needed them, the result was my build was being worked on EVERY DAY unless interrupted by rain. I am often driving past sites where no work happens for up to two weeks and think, that wouldn’t happen if it was Michaels job. Could not recommend McVeigh Homes highly enough and welcome any enquiries to answer in more detail personally than I can here. Michael has my number.
Michael McVeigh, owner of McVeigh Homes recently undertook a construction project for us involving building 2 small lot homes in Bardon. Council requirements necessitated restoring the old, existing house as it was deemed to have significant character even though it was in a seriously dilapidated state. It had to be substantially demolished and lifted carefully before it was given a major renovation and extension; in conjunction with construction of another brand new house right beside it.
Most builders baulked at our complex project but Michael had the experience and expertise to complete it smoothly, within budget and on time. His team did an amazing job and we were thrilled with the 2 beautiful homes he created for us.
We are currently collaborating with him again on the renovation and modern extension of our character home in Auchenflower. We are more than happy to recommend Michael to anyone contemplating a major renovation or new build.
Having built before, it was important for us to find a builder who listened and understood our requirements. In any large building project, regardless of the planning effort prior to building, issues will arise and it is only at this point do you find out how good your builder is.
Working with McVeigh Homes was fantastic. Their ability to manage the project and engage with us in order to deliver the perfect home, was outstanding. Over the life of the project, the McVeigh Homes team earned our trust and respect. The level of attention to detail throughout the project ensured we ended up with our ideal family home for now and years to come.
Building our home with McVeigh Homes was a fabulous experience. Michael and Cathy McVeigh came highly recommended to us from a close friend who had built with their company a few years earlier. Having no experience of our own in building a home, Michael came on board and coordinated the design and build.
There was also plenty of flexibility to modify and add value to our build which has resulted in us having a home well above our initial expectations.
What impressed us the most was the quality and finish of our dream home. The willingness and drive that the McVeigh team has to ultimately fulfil a client’s expectations was truly inspirational. We feel we not only have a beautiful home, but one that’s exceptionally well designed and built.
We would not hesitate in recommending Michael, Cathy and the team with the highest appraisal.
We are current building our third home with McVeigh Homes. The reason we continue to use them is because we know they will do a quality job and we’ll end up with a unique and prestigious home.
Our last home recently sold in three days and everybody commented on the high standard of finish and the quality craftsmanship. Several of the people who submitted offers did not require a building inspection. This is a testament to the exceptional quality that is evident in a McVeigh home.
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.
McVeigh Homes has just completed our renovation at Paddington. We purchased the home, also knowing that there were water penetration issues to the bottom level. Michael inspected the home, and advised that to fix the water issues once and for all, we need to excavate around the house.
It was always going to be a difficult job, as there was poor access, rock, and lots of retaining on side boundary.
The job was done professionally, with no stress to our family. (We were living in the house the whole time). We now have no water issues!
McVeigh Homes has now completed three design and construct homes, and two renovations for us. Visitors are always impressed with the design and finishes achieved, as we are.
Thank you McVeigh Homes for your professionalism on completing our great home at Indooroopilly. This is the third design and construct project you have built for us. As usual, your team was very approachable and efficient, making the whole process stress-free. Nothing was too much to ask!
McVeigh Homes built our house at McDowell. From the outset, our experience was extremely positive. Michael and his team were punctual, kept to timelines and were very organised.
We were kept up-to-date at all times, and Michael discussed any variations or difficulties along the way. Our home was completed within the contract time and on budget.
Their work was high quality and we couldn’t be happier with the finished product. They were highly professional, pleasant to deal with and we would not hesitate to recommend them.
Twenty years ago when we built our first house, plenty of people warned us of the pitfalls of building and the stress they encountered. After choosing Michael and Cathy McVeigh, we realised how lucky we were – the construction experience was amazing! Any time we have needed to build, I have only ever used one company – McVeigh Homes. Some three carwashes later and plans in waiting for our new residence, we couldn’t be happier.
I unreservedly recommend McVeigh Homes to anybody who wishes to build a new home. Michael and his team started the project on time, kept a tidy building site, kept to schedule, held regular on site meetings, were ready and open communicators and overall made the process straight forward and stress free.
