From start to finish, it can take approximately a year to complete a new home build. Throughout that time, you’ll make hundreds of decisions and watch as your dream home materialises before your eyes. 

The very first (and most important) decision you’ll make is the home builder you choose.

Here are six things to keep in mind when making your choice, and why carefully considering each one is crucial to ensuring a successful build that will leave you with all of your hair right where it belongs on your head.

Company Reputation

Company reputation is essential when deciding on your home builder. A builder can say almost anything on their own advertising and website, but a reputation cannot be bought. 

If you know someone who has worked with Franzmann Constructions, or if you’ve seen our growing list of awards, you’ll know that our reputation is impeccable. We consistently provide exceptional communication, transparency and integrity throughout our projects, all on top of the unparalleled workmanship we showcase within the build quality itself. 

With more than 10 years of experience, we’ve built a stellar reputation in Townsville as strong as our projects which speaks for itself.


In simple terms of practicality, location is key. 

As a home builder in Townsville, we are not only perfectly placed to construct homes in the area, we are also extremely proud to do so. We are passionate about the city and North Queensland lifestyle, and we always seek to showcase the premium building quality in the region. 

Having worked in Townsville for over a decade, we are extremely versed in the local conditions including weather, building and planning codes, and the best products and systems to suit our climate.

Style Preference and Workmanship

Like any musician, painter, or writer, a builder can have a certain style. It’s important that you align to their style, and find elements of their past work pleasing.

Take a look at some of our recent Townsville projects to get an idea of our style at Franzmann Constructions. We love to combine the classic and the contemporary, the clean and the modern. 
If you love our style and admire our workmanship, we’d love to hear from you to talk about your dream build.

Building Licences and Insurances

Needless to say, any reliable home builder in Townsville should have all appropriate building licences and insurances. 

Franzmann Constructions maintains the necessary paperwork so that our clients and potential clients can be assured of the qualified team and established systems in place to deliver their project. Our Director, Kiall Franzmann, is also an active member of the Master Builders NQ Committee of Management and Industry Champion.

Budget Fit

Whether a home builder can work with your budget or not can make or break a decision. However,  remember that investing in your home is one the biggest financial decisions you will ever make. The cheapest option does not always mean it will be the best fit for your build, your lifestyle and your family. We pride ourselves on delivering the utmost quality in all our work. This means that you can be assured that you are paying for a premium service that really provides a premium product. 

We can provide you with a budget and a formal fee proposal as part of our process. To begin, we’ll send you a questionnaire to complete that will allow us to give you preliminary advice about your build. Absolutely nobody likes surprises – especially if it means paying more than you originally expected. This is why providing you with an accurate budget depends on the level of detail you have on your building plans. Check out our process flow on our FAQs page to learn more about the steps to getting started.

Project Timeframe

Different homes will require different timeframes to complete a build from start to finish. However, one hurdle that could upset your timeframe is if a home builder is currently booked out with other projects and is unable to start as soon as the plans and building approvals are in place. 

Drop us an email or give us a call to chat about your timeframes, and learn how our established systems and processes will see your dream build become a reality.
