We show families how to find sanctuary in homes that breathe
The Eco-Essence Homes award winning difference
Eco-Essence Homes was founded by Directors, Wayne Kelly and Jeremy Magee, who saw a need for lifestyle oriented, energy efficient, eco friendly, modern, affordable homes.
Our aim is to construct creative and inspiring environments that add to our clients overall health and wellbeing, both physically and spiritually.
We focus on designing, specifying and constructing sustainable homes to accommodate light, breezes and all your lifestyle needs, from first home buyers to the astute home owner, with leading edge Eco-Essence technology.
We strongly believe in the energy that goes into the design and building of a new home, remains in that home for it’s life time, whether it be positive or negative. That is why we will give each and every client a positive and hassle free experience and eco design resolution that allows their home to breathe, with a feeling of warmth and comfort that will remain within the home for ever.
We see our homes as a living organism. We show families how to find sanctuary in homes that breathe, providing the services required for building your own eco sustainable home, from planning to practical completion. We are here to help you step by step to build your dream sustainable home, proudly building homes on the Gold Coast, Brisbane and Northern New South Wales.
The Eco-Essence team of Wayne, Jeremy and Narissa guided us through the building process, from our first meeting to planning and colour selections to handover. We’ve never built before, but quickly learnt to trust the entire team as they always have your best interest at heart. We got up front and honest advice and they delivered on commitments – including our first eco and family friendly eco home for the price we agreed. When problems came up throughout planning, they came to us with options and solutions that overall improved the flow and energy of our home. We happily recommend them as they give you so much more than we could have imagined and (if we ever need to) we’d build with them again.
From the bottom of our hearts we would like to thank you for making the process of building our new home such a positive & seamless experience!
We not only love the look & practicality of the design, we also love the feel & energy of our Eco-Essence Home.
Designing our home with Wayne & Jeremy was such an exciting, creative & enjoyable experience! I always felt heard but I could also completely relax in their experience to lead us and design something way more “us” than we could.
We love how they took time to get to know our family and designed our new home around the way we live.
We are falling more in love with our home every day. We are so grateful for the wonderful lifestyle our home now gives us.
It’s so true that Eco-Essence don’t design houses they design homes….. You can feel it.
We couldn’t be happier with our 8 star Eco Eco Essence home. Our beautiful new home features stunning, functional living spaces and utilizes the natural light and prevailing breezes to heat the cool the home efficiently which we know we will enjoy for many years to come. Wayne, Jeremy and the rest of the Eco team are clearly passionate about what they do and take enormous pride in their work.
This shows in their incredible attention to detail, innovative thinking and commitment to environmentally sustainable design. The entire process, from design to completion, was smooth, simple and stress free, even for first-time builders such as ourselves. Eco Essence delivered in all aspects of our build from budget to timeline and client service.
What made Eco Essence stand out for us was their ability to really think about the design of the house to take advantage of natural light and prevailing breezes at the site – this was not just a generic design that they plonked on our block.
As a result, the house “breathes”, as Eco would say.
Jeremy and Wayne from Eco Essence Homes built our two storey home back in 2012 and were recommended to us by the property developers of Seaside as Eco builders. When we met with them to sketch out some ideas, they immediately impressed us with their easygoing but professional approach and the way in which they translated our ideas to paper. It also appealed to us that they were a local company and not part of a large chain.
House construction is not the easiest thing to go through, especially as absentee owners and not knowing a joist from a bearer, but Jeremy and Wayne made the process a lot easier and were often a long way ahead of us in their thought process and ideas.
Our home was completed on schedule and within budget. We love our beach house and it has come through all that the weather has thrown at it over the last year with flying colours.
We are thankful for Jeremy and Wayne’s expertise and particularly their “nothing is too much trouble” personal approach.
Quick and efficient build and on budget. We are currently enjoying a well designed and built house that takes advantage of the warm winter sun. Warming the house during the day and keeping it warm at night.
Please do not underestimate the importance of solar passive design for the future comfort of your home. Eco-Essence Homes can provide a great experience from design to construction and we would recommend them to anyone.
From the first meeting we felt very comfortable with the team at Eco Essence Homes. We had chosen their ‘Pacific’ design, but it had to be re-jigged to fit on our block. Working with Wayne and Narissa on the design options was a genuine pleasure. We really appreciated their efforts to deliver the best result possible with minimum fuss. They were always available to offer advice, answer our myriad of questions and help us negotiate the seemingly endless ‘selections’ phase. The plan came together nicely – it looked great on paper, just had to make it happen!
The trust, confidence and relationship we developed with the design team continued and grew with Jeremy when he took charge for the building phase. As this progressed, we were really impressed with the unwavering attention to quality, not only in construction, but also to detail and finish. Jeremy, Dave (Site Manager) and their teams of ‘Tradies’ delivered a beautiful, top-quality home on time and budget, with all the ‘eco’ features and inclusions performing as advertised.
In conclusion, throughout this project, we were made to feel more like ‘friends’ than ‘clients’ and the stunning home they designed and delivered exceeded our expectations. So, to anyone wanting a similar experience and result, we strongly suggest that you talk to the team at Eco Essence Homes.
