Shelton Homes Turns 21
Just as turning 21 is an important milestone for an individual, it is great to be celebrating 21 years in business. Over the past two decades Shelton Homes has built a sought after reputation for designing and building quality timber Queenslander homes.
The Journey from Day 1 to Today
Like many businesses, Shelton Homes started from humble beginnings. Our founder and director, Scott Shelton, commenced his building career as an apprentice in Toowoomba, forging his career in construction.
His passion for timber homes and design led him to forming his own building company, Shelton Homes.
Since then, Shelton has built a reputation of designing and building classic Queenslander timber homes. The innovative designs cater for a modern lifestyle, whilst maintaining the integrity and character of these iconic beautiful homes; including expansive wrap-around verandas, timber flooring and the hallmark Queenslander trimmings.
Over the past 21 years, the team at Shelton Homes has strived to continuously improve on every aspect of the business.
We place considerable emphasis on collaborating with our clients and have developed a 12-stage build process, guiding the client from the initial consultation to handing over the keys to their beautiful new home. Customer satisfaction has been key to our success.
We are thankful to both our valued clients and commercial industry colleagues for the recognition and referrals they have given Shelton Homes over the past 21 years. Our commitment to the building and construction industry has been endorsed by the likes of the Master Builders Queensland Housing and Construction Awards, with recent victories including:
- The Individual Home Category Award (2014)
- Best Heritage Style Home (2013 and 2012).
Wisdom and Experience
The past 21 years have allowed us to hone our workmanship, develop our processes and talents, and deliver an unparalleled standard of customer service. Our portfolio has expanded from custom built and spec homes, through to commercial projects including the awarded Toowoomba Christian College Trade Training Centre.
The confidence of our maturity is complemented by the creative energy and innovative thinking we bring to every build project. Each block has its own character, which often requires a different build approach to accommodate the client’s home design. Shelton Homes’ has years of experience and expertise to tackle these challenging projects (such as building on sloping sites).
We have all heard that the key to a successful career is doing what you love. Shelton Homes loves creating beautiful Queenslanders to meet our clients’ needs and vision.
