Besides building your dream home, there’s nothing that makes us happier than receiving feedback from our owners. 
Our aim is to provide the very best building experience, and we firmly believe in open communication and forging a beautiful relationship with our clients. When we receive these love notes, we know we’ve done our job!
Being new to the building game we thought Oakvale had a set style and it was different from our vision. We already had a plan that we’d drawn up to suit our block and lifestyle but the onset of Covid and our original builder deciding to retire – we approached Oakvale and thank goodness we did!! They couldn’t have been more obliging and reassuring.
The communication between ourselves and Oakvale was always open and transparent and this is why we found Oakvale so great to deal with. This transparency meant we knew what we were getting for our money and assisted our budgeting.
Nikki and Afton in Oakvales office were amazing, spending 8-10 hours assisting us with all aspects of the house fit out from the colour of the bench tops , cupboards, floor coverings, bathroom tap fittings etc.
Nothing was to big or small for Nikki and Afton if something needed to be changed or we weren’t sure on an aspect of the build they always had answer or solution to the problem.
Kurt the foreman/owner of Oakvale Homes had his finger on the pulse of our build and with all of his sub contractors did amazing jobs.
Nikki and Afton would always email us weekly to advise how the build was going and also sent photos periodically on the build progress. Once the build was completed any small items that needed touching up was organised promptly by Kurt and done in a timely manner.
When we walked into our house for the first time we were blown away that our design had materialised into our “Dream Home”.
Thank you so very much Oakvale for making our first build so wonderfully smooth and exciting.
We would recommend Oakvale Homes to anyone wanting to build their dream home.

My beautiful Oakvale home was handed over to me in December 2023.  During the build I was kept updated with any changes.  The communication from Afton, Daphne and Donnah was awesome, my phone calls and emails were always promptly returned, the girls were amazing to work with, nothing was ever a problem for them.  I am very happy with the workmanship and finished product.

This is the third home we have built over the years and by far the most enjoyable and stand out experience with Oakvale Homes. 

Firstly we searched the internet trying to find any negative reviews about Oakvale all we could find was positive reviews and experiences. 

We were sold on our first initial meeting with Afton, nothing was a problem or too hard. We were amazed that we could take one of the Oakvale house designs and personalise parts of the design to make it our unique home. Kurt and Alan are a pleasure to deal with none of our requests in the process were a problem. It was very helpful receiving the weekly updates from Nikki. Communication was awesome our emails and phone calls were always promptly returned. 

We were impressed with the attention to detail and the quality of work produced by the different trades Oakvale has. This put me at rest, not having to worry about dodgy workmanship. We were so excited and thrilled to move in and so very happy with the final result a truly beautiful home we have the pleasure to enjoy. 

Thank you to all the team at Oakvale Homes.

It was both big and little things that set the experience for us. Big things such as Kurt meeting us at our [hairy, wild, oddly shaped] block to help us plan and imagine our home working for the block we chose, and small things like Donnah taking the time to help us figure out where menial things such as power outlets and light switches should go. 

Big things such as patience as we navigated the Admin and financial side correctly (thank you Daph!) and little things like taking the initiative to change the way our bathroom window opened, after I mentioned I’d love to be able to look outside as I sat in my [upgraded because why not!] bath. Thank you Sharon!

My wife and I own a rural property and we looked at many housing options when we decided to build. We always kept coming back to Oakvale Homes as we fell in love with their Woombye design. Our land is hilly, yet it has great views. Kurt staked out the perfect place for our home. Building on poles meant we could maximise the views and still have space for a garden, carport, etc. We were able to make some modifications to the Woombye design to suit the aspect of our land, at no extra cost. Visitors often comment that the house suits the land so much that it looks architecturally designed. Oakvale are very generous in allowing owners to custom build (e.g., changing the position of windows, flipping/mirroring the basic design, etc). They have a great team of trades people and the quality of the build is outstanding. The office staff (Daph and Donna) are always helpful. Kurt and Sharon run a family company and I have no hesitation in recommending them. If you want a building company that is trustworthy, with honest values, and a quality build, then I would highly recommend paying Oakvale Homes a visit!

The Team at Oakvale Homes were great! Any issues or concerns were quickly addressed and resolved. My partner and I were kept in the loop with all progress of the build for a our beautiful new home. Can’t thank Kurt, Sharon, Daphne and Donnah enough for making such a massive task of building a new home smooth and easy even in such a busy and stressful time. Thanks again Oakvale for everything!

To Oakvale Homes, being first time home builders and only new to town we wanted to go with a local builder. When we were recommended Oakvale Homes we saw that they had been building in Gympie & surrounds for well over 20 years and were a family owned and operated business. From the first phone call and meeting at your showroom we walked away knowing that you were the builders that we would engage and didn’t look anywhere else, the staff at Oakvale Homes have been absolutely fantastic to deal with from start to finish and nothing ever seemed to hard for them to assist us with. We looked at one of their floor plans and then designed that to suit our own needs and once again nothing was a problem for Oakvale Homes to accommodate us. We lived on-site during the build and we got to meet all the trades as they came and went and I can say that we found everyone to be absolutely top of their game. They didn’t mind us asking all the questions that we did being first time builders and would talk us through almost every stage of the build. I would not hesitate to recommend Oakvale Homes to anyone who is looking at building their dream home, all the staff and contractors are of the highest standards and we couldn’t be more happier with our beautiful home. Thanks to Kurt, Sharon, Daph & Donnah, and all the tradies that made this happen for us.
Kind regards

Our family recently moved into our new home built by Oakvale Homes in Gympie.


Throughout the whole process – from introduction, modification, fitting choices and construction – the whole team were very accommodating, professional and were good for a laugh.  We had a stress-free build.  Kurt is an acclaimed project manager, with all stages going to plan and we encountered no delays.


During construction, we were kept informed of all stages.  All tradespersons who hand a hand in the build should be congratulated and recognised for the quality of their work: from the blokes swinging the hammers, the plasterers, painters, electricians and plumbers – they are all at the top of their game as demonstrated by the quality of their workmanship.  It is evident they take a great deal of pride in their work.  The site was left very clean with no rubbish left behind.


Since moving in, we have found the house to be a fantastic new home.  We had no issues requiring attention, nor fix-ups required. All of the appliances are of good quality and work perfectly.


We would like to very much thank Sharon, Kurt, Daphne, Donnah and all the tradies involved for laying the foundation of our family’s exciting future by building us a fantastic new home.


We have no hesitation in recommending Oakvale Homes to anybody seeking a high-quality and stress-free home build.  


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.

We have just built our very first home with Oakvale. 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.


Our whole build was done with attention to detail and the lovely team at Oakvale work with you to help personalize plans so they suit your needs. Will hopefully get to build with them again one day in the future. Thank you for building our first home


We love the family feeling that Sharon & Kurt bring to building YOUR home. Hands on and involved. Nothing was too much trouble and all queries were handled quickly and professionally. Thank you very much and also to the other staff members too.


Just built my first home with Oakvale & couldn’t be happier with the quality of their work. From the start Afton was a pleasure to deal with and made the whole process as easy as possible. Kurt and his tradies done an amazing job as well as Daphne was easy to talk to in the office. We adjusted the floor plan to suit my style and they made it happen at no extra cost. Highly recommend Oakvale


Thank you to the team at Oakvale for building our dream home, it was an absolute pleasure to work with you all. Your communication and attention to detail was a real stand out and the build quality second to none. As first home buyers it was very daunting and confusing to plan our build but with the help of your entire team it was made to feel easy. We cannot thank you enough for all your help and will be recommending Oakvale to everybody. 


I can’t thank Afton and the team in the wide bay enough for building our first home and making this dream a reality. We had previously seen two other builders who were not what we were looking for and made the beginning of our building journey stressful and hard work. I can say with so much happiness that Afton and her team made this process stress free, exciting and so enjoyable with weekly communication throughout the build! Although we plan on enjoying our new home for years to come, I will return to this amazing team with future construction. I couldn’t recommend them enough!


I can not thank Oakvale enough, they were so easy to deal with. I have built three times and this was by far the best with such great workmanship. I can not fault them. Great customer service. Thank you very much. It was a pleasure to deal with everyone.


Thanks to the whole Oakvale team for building our beautiful house. We have a very challenging block and nothing was too much of a problem for them. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants to build a new house.


Oakvale Homes built our first home and we could not be any happier! They were upfront with their information, told us everything we needed to know and kept us up to date each week on the build. They allowed us to walk through the house at different stages and were so easy to talk to. Would definitely recommend Kurt, Sharen, Daphne, Damien and the whole team to anyone!! Thank you again for helping us with our first home!


I have just built my first home with Oakvale and could not be happier with the house and the whole building process. Right from the start, the whole team was incredibly supportive and accepting of any queries, concerns or modifications I put forward for the house. Throughout the build, the communication was fantastic. Sharon and Daphne were very quick and professional in answering any questions I had and throughout our communications I felt very informed and knew exactly what was happening each step of the way. Kurt was fantastic in supervising the build, everything ran to schedule and without any hiccups. I was very impressed at the level of care shown by Oakvale Homes and the fact that they showed a genuine interest in the house and my experience. My sincere thanks to Kurt, Sharon, Daphne and Damien for all of your hard work, the house is fantastic!


Thank you to Daphne, Sharon, Kurt and the entire Oakvale team for building our first house. We are loving transforming it into our home. We especially loved that you allowed us to put our own touches into the build like our custom made vanities etc. It was these things that made us feel like our home is a representation of us. You guys built our home in an incredibly short time frame which meant that we got to enjoy it sooner. Thank you again.
