House plans for you

"We don’t build standard homes, because families don’t come in standard packages.," Greg Orange, founder

Each home we build is individual and created to suit your needs, lifestyle and budget. Your personal ideas, sketches and thoughts are an important part of the design and house planning process and assist us in creating the sense of individuality that will set your home apart from others.

Whether it’s your first or forever home we absolutely insist you get just what you want, even if you don’t know what that is. That’s why we offer so many choices.

Our catalogue of existing house plans is huge and we’re always adding fresh new ones. For a no-fuss new home that doesn’t skimp on quality features simply choose what best suits your budget and lifestyle. We even have house and land packages for those who want it all taken care of. 

Use the plans simply as inspiration to get you started, enjoying flexibility in terms of budget, layout and personal customisations. Customise whatever you like; it’s easy and our experienced consultants will guide you so you get what you want and need from a house plan. We will help you tailor it to your vision.

We even build bespoke. Collaborate with our expert consultants to create a unique home that’s exactly what you want.

Experience. Simplicity. Choice. Get it all with Orange Homes.

Transparency and good communication are ingrained in every part of our process. We ensure you always know what's happening every step of the way and there are no hidden costs with our fixed price contracts.

All our homes come with a Master Builder’s Guarantee and a 10-year structural warranty. We have three architectural designers, who have designed many award-winning homes.
