"We decided to build an investment property at Yarrabilba for Mum to live in.  Since the house was going to be Mum's house I really wanted to add a few special touches and add some features you probably wouldn't put in a standard rental property.  We had looked around at several project builders, but couldn't find that something special within our budget.  I decided to give Lateral Homes a call to see what they could offer.  Shayne sat down with us over a cup of coffee and we discussed what we wanted to achieve.  Mum had a list of features she wanted in her new house (ensuite, walk in robe, butler's pantry, laundry in garage) and we had a strict budget to adhere to, so we started discusing our options.  We talked different building materials and designs that would maximise features and minimise costs.  I loved that I could be involved in the design process, you don't get that with project builders!!  We agreed on a great design and started the build.

The best thing about using Lateral Homes was that Shayne was happy for us to be as involved in the build as we wanted to be.  We are both very hands on so we wanted to be involved where we could.  Many people say that building a house is one of the most stressful times in your life, I actually found it to be a great experience and I learned a lot about the building process thanks to Shayne' great attitiude and wealth of building knowledge.  Needless to say we are so happy with the finished product.

Thank you so much Shayne and Jill for building a house that ticked all the boxes :)  Looking forward to building with you again in the future ...."

Arlene and Jake,

''I lost my husband a few years ago and decided to sell and build a smaller home on my daughter’s property. It was a scary time for me as although I have had quite a few homes built, this was now - just me.

I was lucky to discover Lateral Homes.

My first contact was with Jill, over the phone. Straight away I felt confident. Shayne (Jill’s husband and project manager) came to see me and to inspect the site. My confidence rose as Shayne was very knowledgeable and actually suggested things I hadn’t thought about, these things to my advantage. I trusted Shayne from day one.

My beautiful homes is now completed. I am very happy.

Thank you Shayne and everyone involved in the process. I have absolutely no hesitation recommending Lateral Homes, and my door will always be open to anyone interested in Shayne’s services (to validate his work is perfect)".


"When we finally paid off our property we decided to renovate our home. We went to many home building companies but found the limited design choices were not compatible with our ideas and requirements. We contacted Lateral Homes and found them to be willing to allow us to have what we wanted – example: bricks of our choice, (not just one from the suppliers they used) roof design, paint colours and many more.

We found Lateral Homes and Shayne’s manner to be professional and knowledgeable in all aspects of the alterations we required at our home. When I questioned what was being done, Shayne was happy to stop and explain the stages with me, despite obviously being busy.

Throughout the project I made many alterations to the original plan and Shayne and his crew were always willing to accept my requests and turn vague ideas into reality. He was always approachable, flexible and competitive in his pricing.

We were confident in the abilities of the subbies that Lateral Homes employed to complete our renovations and impressed with their manner whilst on site and was always polite and respectful of our home.

One of Shayne’s most outstanding differences when compared to their builders was his approach and willingness to discuss cost cutting ideas. He suggested ways of changing things to create the complete look. His hands on approach to the smallest detail to the point of recalling subbies to redo things that was not to his high standard. He coordinated all sub contractors in a timely manner so the project flowed and time was not lost waiting for the next stage to start.

I am satisfied with the work that was provided at my house and would use lateral homes again if the need arose. I have recommended Lateral Homes to friends and family that require the services that Lateral Homes offer and i will continue to do so.

I just wanted to thank Shayne and the boys for the work they did at our home. I was very impressed with Lateral Homes from start to finish. Shayne proved to know what he was talking about and went about the work with no fuss.

Shayne - you have proven yourselves to be exceptionally knowledgeable and hardworking in your chosen field.

We would recommend Lateral Homes to any potential client."

"I was very pleased by the way my house was built, it was very quick after the plans had been approved by the Council.  The couple of minor problems were taken care of promptly.  I trust the company and will recommend them to anyone.  Great service!"


"My journey with Lateral Homes started with a warm smile as I entered the door and at the end after my home was completed I was still smiling. Over the last 40 years I have built many homes but have never experienced such professional manner in which all aspects of the building process were handled.  For a builder to take a vision of a client and turn it into reality is a very special gift and I believe Lateral Homes has turned my vision into a home that I am very proud of, the finish is of a high quality that I have never seen before. I would have no hesitation to build again with Lateral Homes and to recommend to anyone who may be building.

I wish Lateral Homes all the best in the future".


"What a great experience to see our perfectly designed granny flat being built.  Shayne, Jill and their team are truly professionals.

From the very start, we knew what was going on and felt very comfortable with Shayne supervising everything.  He is a perfectionist down to the minute detail and what a fantastic granny flat!  It all turned out much better than we anticipated.  Thank you Shayne, Jill and all the team at Lateral Homes"


"I just wanted to thankyou for a very positive build process and great result!  I was happy that you sorted out any issues willingly and kept me informed when necessary.  The tradies were very friendly and respectful."


"We feel very lucky indeed to have discovered Lateral Homes during our search for a builder to construct our new home.  Having heard horrendous stories from friends about their building experiences, we looked far and wide for a builder with whom we felt “safe”.  Just by chance we noticed Lateral Homes’ office in Logan Village, and there we met Jill Goold, whose professional presentation, coupled with her genuine interest in our home-drawn plans, made a great first impression on us; our subsequent meeting with her husband Shayne left us feeling totally comfortable about signing the contract with Lateral Homes, and we never regretted our decision.

Shayne and Jill together guided us through the building process - their quiet confidence and sincere interest in us as people, as well as in the project itself, made the whole process so simple and easy. Nothing was too hard for them; little changes along the way never posed a problem; our input as owners was always welcomed; Shayne made himself available at odd hours to meet with us to suit our busy schedules, and he was constantly on-site ensuring that work was done to a high standard.

Our home was completed well within the timeframe specified in the contract, totally within budget, and to a very high standard of quality - we could not be happier with the outcome.

In our experience, Shayne and Jill Goold truly are a professional team in the building industry, and it was obvious to us that their company’s philosophy of “thinking outside the square” applies not only to the building work undertaken, but also to their relationship with the owners as well.

We really enjoyed the whole experience with Lateral Homes – there was never a stressful moment for us from the signing of the contract to the handing over of the keys to our new home – Jill and Shayne took care of everything.

We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Lateral Homes to anyone requiring the services of a builder."

'My name is Brad Currie, I'm the General Manager of Mununjali Housing and Development Company Limited.  We have 40+ staff within our organisation and we needed to have a premises that will suit our growth.  Our head office is in the CBD of Beaudesert, we wanted a modern look with space and flexibility for growth.

Lateral Homes provided us with the flexibility for what we wanted, not just something off the shelf, as we had an existing dwelling we needed to build into, and complement the existing structures.

Lateral Homes demonstrated they actually have pride in their product ensuring all contractors were carrying out the trade they were providing to the highest level, leaving no stone unturned.

Lateral Homes were very flexible in providing what we needed and at a very competitive price. With the project delivered on time and budget, product second to none and workmanship to the highest standard.

Our staff could not be any happier as their workplace is now the talk of the town. I would highly recommend Lateral Homes for your next project

Thank you to Shayne and Jill".


"We’re first home buyers and Lateral Homes was always there to help. It was good to be able to talk straight to our builder.They made building our home smooth. Overall we are very happy!”

Steve & Savina, CEDAR VALE

"Love my new home! Thanks to Shayne and his team at Lateral Homes. They built my home to exactly what I wanted. The team was friendly and helpful. They did all the hard work for me, like dealing with our local Council.

Thank you Shayne and everyone at Lateral Homes!”



"Shayne was the project manager when we built our house.  This being our first time building, we were not experienced at all in the process and Shayne made it easy.  He was extremely flexible & often went beyond what was expected.  He often offered suggestions that would not have been in his best interest, but was beneficial to us & the end result.  I also noticed his excellent rapport with subcontractors & suppliers.

We are extremely happy with our new house & Shayne should be proud of his work.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Shayne to any prospective clients."
