When choosing to build your family home, it’s important to go with builders who have more than just experienceWhy?  Because the process not only involves working with experts in designing and building a quality home to suit your lifestyle and budget, but also working with people you can trust to put your best interests first and keep you informed through every stage of your build.

That’s why people choose us.

We’ve been a prominent part of South East Queensland’s building industry for over 25 years; our homes are renowned for quality across the Gympie and Cooloola; Northern Sunshine Coast and Fraser Coast regions north to Hervey Bay.  So, when it comes to choosing the right builder who works with you to develop a plan that suits your lifestyle and budget, we’ve got you.



At Oakvale Homes, you’ll meet Kurt & Sharon Hansen, the husband and wife team who took ownership of the family business when Kurt’s father, Warren decided to retire, handing the torch over to his son and daughter in law in 2017 after spending decades laying the foundation of the building company.


We understand building a home is one of the biggest and most stressful decisions you will ever make, which is why we aim to alleviate your anxieties through open and honest communication about your build – from idea through to delivery.  Across every single stage and throughout, we remain committed to delivering on our clients’ expectations. We will regularly update you on our progress so you always know exactly what is happening now, what is happening next, and how we’re going to help you through the process until we handover the keys to your new Oakvale Homes’ home.


Kurt & Sharon, along with their three boys, have lived in Gympie most of their lives. They value honesty, trust, transparency and family; values that resonate throughout the entire Oakvale Homes team and influence their business decisions, making it possible to consistently deliver on their mission “to provide the very best building experience possible for every single client” and maintain the impeccable quality standards Oakvale Homes are renowned for.


Kurt & Sharon value their community as much as their customers, which is why they invest in it by employing the best localised subcontractors; sourcing from the best local suppliers as business partners; sponsoring numerous localised sporting groups; and volunteering for local charities and community events – and if Kurt is looking a little pale when you meet him, it’s because he regularly donates blood to the Australian Red Cross, too.

When you choose Oakvale Homes, you’re not just choosing an experienced builder you can trust, you’re also choosing a family of locals who support locals – and that’s a beautiful thing.


Elevated home construction has become our trademark and area of expertise - having harnessed the power to tame even the wildest of terrains with our home designs for over 25 years.  Yes, elevated homes are our specialty but we also build on concrete slabs and offer a wide variety of home designs that are completely customisable – not just to your taste, but your lifestyle and budget too.  We also offer house and land packages, so if you have an idea, desire, or plan for your home, our team of home design and building experts will help bring it into reality.


Our mission is to provide the very best building experience possible for every single client.  We are committed to delivering on our clients’ expectations for a high quality service and build by remaining transparent in our communication through every stage of the build.  We source high quality products and services from local suppliers where possible, creating real value for money without substituting quality and delivering superior customer service at every opportunity.  Our personal values and business ethics underpin our mission and shine through for every single client on every single build whether you’re an investor, first-time, or forever-home builder, the magic begins when you let our family build your family home.

What our clients say

Oakvale Homes built our latest home and they are an excellent company to deal with. We threw some huge challenges at them and they handled it all with a professional, friendly manner, and the workmanship was second to none. I can thoroughly recommend this company to anyone.

Brenda Harrison

We have just built with Oakvale our very first home… All the finishes from the trades are to a high quality and all trades we had dealings with were very friendly and professional… We definitely had a great building experience and look forward to building another home with them in the future.

Hannah and Josh Pascoe

I just wanted to say how amazing the entire team is at Oakvale Homes. We had such a great experience from start to finish. Everyone said building a home is very stressful, but we found we had no stress involved in the 4 months it took for them to build our 3 bedroom home. We love it and highly recommend Oakvale Homes.
