Ken Beissel - CEO

David Reid Homes Australasia now 100% Australian owned

Exciting times ahead for Australia’s leading custom home building franchisor! 

As CEO and Managing Director of David Reid Homes, I am delighted to announce that I have moved to 100% ownership of David Reid Homes Australasia with my family company completing the buyout of the New Zealand based majority shareholders in July 2021.

As part of the buyout, the Beissel family acquired the worldwide rights for the David Reid Homes IP.

With over 45 years in the building industry and 25 years involvement as a leading player in the building franchise sector, I am very excited about growing the David Reid Homes franchise into the leading building franchisor in Australia.

Already a strong franchise on the eastern seaboard particularly since I accepted the CEO role in David Reid Homes Australasia in 2011, David Reid Homes will be looking to expand its franchise numbers of quality builders across Australia. At David Reid Homes, we specialize in building quality luxury homes with our franchisees accessing a structure of world class business and marketing systems enabling our franchisees to grow sustainable businesses – great opportunities for builders looking to take their existing business to a higher level with a network of like-minded colleagues supported by world class systems.

Many have already become David Reid Homes franchisees resulting in testimonials like this one featuring our Tamworth franchisee.

David Reid Homes – Custom Home Builders Brisbane bring you so much more…
When we set to writing about custom home builders Brisbane, we considered the needs of folks building their second or third or even fourth homes. First home builders often aren’t looking for custom home builders in Brisbane or custom home builders in Australia for that matter. This is because people who build custom homes are often looking at investing at a higher level into their new home building project. That doesn’t mean that first home buyers can’t enjoy the benefits of a custom home design and build. Let’s break that down a bit to see how it fits:

So, What is a Custom Home?

According to Wikipedia, a custom home is defined as:

“…a one-of-a-kind house that is designed for a specific client and for a particular location. The custom home builder may use plans created by an architect or by a professional home designer. Custom homes afford consumers the opportunity to control layout, lot size, and accessibility. In most cases, custom home builders construct on land the home buyer already owns. Some developers sell fully serviced lots specifically for the construction of custom homes. This makes it easy to build a custom home since the lot is construction-ready and builders can focus purely on the design of the home.” Attribution to wiki

Wikipedia goes on to define Custom Home Builders:

“Custom home builders

  • Build unique houses. A custom home is a site-specific home built from a unique set of plans for the wishes of a specific client.
  • Some custom builders may offer design/build services.
  • Build single-family homes.
  • Are generally small-volume builders.
  • Tend to build high-end homes.” Attribution to wiki

Custom Home Builder Brisbane for First Home Buyers

None of these points preclude an affordable first home from being a custom home. “A custom home is a site-specific home built from a unique set of plans for the wishes of a specific client” Within your budget, we can build a unique home that is custom designed and built for your needs, your view and location. So you don’t have to have a “cookie cutter” box because you are a first home buyer. Of course, there’s often the option to build a more modest but still custom designed and built home for you and allowing for extensions up and out at a later date as your circumstances allow.

A Sustainable Luxury Home | David Reid Homes New England

Creating a Luxury Sustainable House

Creating this Luxurious Home – A Labour of Love

This passive-solar-designed sustainable house in the countryside is at one with nature. Located in a regional Northern New South Wales, this modern eco-friendly luxury home is far from your typical house. Built by Dan Wilks of David Reid Homes, creating this house was as much about building his dream home as it was about creating a structure that clearly defines what he is capable of as a David Reid luxury home builder. The dwelling displays the best of passive-solar design and ‘green’ building. Dan is passionate about eco-friendly construction and has completed his Housing Industry Association (HIA) Greensmart Course. This beautiful home became his way of proving the theory. Dan points out that the two most important aspects of building are orientation and insulation. Coupled with these are essential cross-flow ventilation, shading, and passive solar design for eco-friendly living. “The orientation aspect is a classic example in our case. We have positioned our house a little northeast,” says Dan’s wife. Kylie. “This is perfect for our passive design, but our view of the town is more to the east. Most people think that’s the direction your house should face but although our house is facing the town, it doesn’t mean we don’t get to enjoy a view of it,” she explains. The interiors are fresh and simple with a neutral theme of white, light and dark grey, complemented by browns from the timber elements. Occasional splashes of colour from furnishings and artwork. sustainable house ventilation to bathroomA simple colour palette allows the texture of different materials to become the feature,” says Kylie, adding that the block walls give the house a structural grounding. The north-facing 4 m x 12 m glass doors are another stunning feature and let the tranquil bush view flow into the open style design. The house has been custom designed to suit the family and, according to Kylie, “The design was about meeting different aspects of our life and future life. We can shut the door of the office and walk away,” says Kylie. The guest room, one of five bedrooms in the house, has its own separate access to the outside.

The Sustainable House and the Family

This sustainable house is open plan and spacious but with quiet areas, such as the library. For a family, the ease of access between the garage and indoors via a mudroom is important for making life more convenient. The positioning of the main bedroom means it has a stunning outlook of the peaceful countryside, it’s close to the living room of the house but retains privacy. “It’s well-planned spaces like these that make large houses feel like a home.” With free reign over the kitchen design, Kylie decided to create a space with small galley areas. “It certainly doesn’t look like a conventional set-out, but it works for how we live,” she says of the kitchen layout. The kitchen has two distinct areas – one for coffee, tea and breakfast; one for preparation and cooking. The island bench brings the room together and acts as a central space for catching up, serving meals and homework. Sustainable house beauty at nightDan’s favourite element of this dream sustainable home is the staircase. It’s a demonstration of excellent planning and workmanship. The result is simple and stunning. The passive design of this rural luxury home includes louvre windows to assist with excellent cross-flow ventilation, hydronic in-slab heating, reverse masonry walls, solar panels, extended eaves on the north side for protection from the summer heat, and extra insulation. The lawn is watered using a Biolytix waste management system and the western side of the house has an ornamental grapevine growing to assist in shielding the house from the sun in summer while allowing warm sunlight to penetrate during the winter when the vine’s leaves drop. Dan designed and handmade the home’s concrete panels, which act as a heat pack. “They conduct heat when the sun is long gone and work like magic!” Says Kylie. With its practical and stylish design, this beautiful sustainable house is energy-efficient and proof that passive eco-design is achievable. It’s no surprise then, that this stylish, contemporary family home was a finalist in the 2013 HIA northern New South Wales housing awards.
