Michael & Louise's Custom Built Home

"Thank you so much for building out beautiful home! Peter, Ryan and the rest of the True Design / Peter Walters Builders team were absolutely wonderful to work with and made the usually stressful job of building a house seem easy. We came to Peter with our drawings and home made plans and within six months our vision became a reality. Working with Ryan was a fantastic experience, a brilliant site manager ensuring that there was a tradesman on site every single day. Thanks guys we love living in our new home!"

Ken & Norma's Home

"We cannot comment highly enough on the professionalism given to the construction of our home. Peter Walters and his staff were very obliging. Nothing was too hard and we were kept up to date at all times during construction. The building site was always kept clean and tidy and the performance and workmanship of all tradespeople was exceptional and we could not be happier. We recommend True Design Homes to anyone who is thinking of building."

Alex's Custom Built Home

"I Have been very happy dealing with Peter and his team throughout the entire building process. Peter was always accommodating on variations and access to the building site as well as being helpful in choosing products and designs. Peter was recommended to me by friends and I would certainly be happy to recommend his company also. I am very happy with the finished house/home it is fantastic!"

Chris has always been a pleasure to deal with and has a great eye for detail. He has completed two projects for our family over the years and his workmanship is second to none. He is honest, reliable and keeps you up to date over the course of the project. Both times his quotes have been accurate, and he has taken the time to explore other options in the aim of maintaining quality, aesthetics and being cost effective. We would highly recommend Gentrify.

Carmel & Mike Gillies

Hi Chris, I wanted to thank you personally for the work you completed on our house this month. You made the whole building experience painless. You delivered a job to the quality, cost and on time as quoted. Having had a number of different builders in the last year, it was a refreshing experience to work with you. You also helped us with some good solutions to problem areas of the house. We have no hesitation in directing anyone your way if they are looking for builders and would definitely be in touch if we were going to build again.

Kieran White

I just completed a major renovation on my home with Gentrify and cannot recommend Chris and his team highly enough. The effort that Chris put in to ensure that every detail was perfect, including throwing an additional en-suite at him part way through, has led to a finished product well beyond what I was even hoping for. Everyone who has been through the place since completion is amazed at the transformation and the quality of workmanship throughout and I have no doubt that this has also translated in to added value well beyond the money spent. If you are considering a project of any type, do yourself a favour and talk to the Gentrify team.


Building a new home is arguably the biggest investment you will make in your life. Therefore it is imperative you get it right. You want a design that fits your lifestyle and how you live. During the design process it is important you don’t feel restricted; being able to customise standard plans is not true flexibility. In 2012 Signature Homes deleted all of their standard plans - well over 50+ designs. Now every single home they build is unique.

Signature Homes Geelong employ their very own senior designer, Daniel van den Ham who has successfully completed Dip.Des, B.Arts(Arch), B.Arch. Daniel is based at Signature Homes fyans street office full time. They begin the custom design journey with a conversation about how you live. They encourage you to compile your favourite ideas, and Signature Homes will work with your magazine cut outs, pinterest boards and wishlists ensuring they incorporate this into your new home.

Signature Homes Geelong in-house custom design service enables you to see your home unfold infront of you; as Daniel begins to hand sketch your initial concept. At Signature, they also completely understand visualising a plan can be difficult; so they provide 3D images of your home, as well as the capability for 3D walk throughs.

Signature Homes custom design service is perfect for:

  • Split level homes
  • Sloping blocks of land or irregular shape & size land
  • Locations with amazing views to capture

If you are thinking of building, have a conversation with Signature Homes. They will provide you the honest feedback and service you require. Feel free to contact Signature Homes to arrange a time to view their extensive portfolio of custom designs. Sit down with Daniel to see how you could work together.

Julie & Wayne

"When we decided to build a house, we visited practically every display home in Geelong. Whilst there were elements of these homes we liked, nothing exactly fitted the bill. The volume builders claim changes can be made to their floor plans, however we found these changes ended up adding a significant amount to the cost of the home. We always thought an architect designed home would be out of our price range, but then we discovered Signature Homes. They offered an obligation free meeting with their in house architect. At this meeting we discussed our must haves and wish list. Daniel was able to come up with a concept design that we were thrilled with. We could tell from this initial meeting we were on the same page in terms of budget and design. The floor plan was drafted and we were able to make numerous changes to suit our requirements and budget. Prior to signing contracts we were aware of the full cost of the build with no hidden extras. The finish and workmanship of our home is of high quality and we are extremely happy with the end result. Thanks Signature Homes!"

Robyn & Craig

"When planning to build our new home we knew exactly what we wanted to achieve but were unable to find just the right fit in the standard designs of other companies. When we approached Signature homes it was fantastic to find a company that would work with us on an individual design that could include everything we wanted. We met with Daniel, Signature’s architect, who skilfully interpreted our ideas into our dream home. It was great to have the opportunity to work through the design process and develop a ‘one of a kind’ plan that that suited what we wanted for our family, our lifestyle and our location. We would highly recommend Signature if you want an opportunity to develop your new home in a unique design that’s just for you."
