Step inside Stephen and Kelly’s Mt Waverley home – Part 2


After dedicating nearly 12 months to thorough research and meticulous design of their dream home, the next exciting phase for Steven and Kelly was the construction process. ‘It was our first time going through it (the build process), there was a lot to learn, and a lot of details, and in retrospect I really, really appreciate that’, Steven remarks. ‘Because what that meant was, once the actual build was happening it was just such smooth sailing’. 

We had really good site managers, they would invite us to come and have a look’, Kelly adds.
Although they lived close-by, Steven and Kelly didn’t have time to visit the site regularly, so it was up to the site managers to communicate. ‘They were fantastic’, says Steven.


From the communication we received from Carter Grange…very open and honest and it gave us confidence that everything would be ok,’ explains Kelly. Throughout the whole process, ‘each stage was tackled in a very timely manner, so there were no really big delays’.



Talking to Gerald about their tips for people ready to build, Steven offers, ‘Good communication’, trust ‘word of mouth’ and engage with a builder that offers ‘a process and a mechanism that you can put your confidence in’. Steven and Kelly’s custom build is currently utilised by Carter Grange as one of their many show homes, based in Kemp Avenue, Mount Waverley.

Step inside Stephen and Kelly’s Mt Waverley home – Part 1



For Steven and Kelly, it was always a dream to build their ‘forever family home’

Beginning their journey with the purchase of a renovator’s dream, Steven and Kelly began and finished their due diligence with Carter Grange. Recently sitting down with director, Gerald, Steven and Kelly detail their experience with Carter Grange from their initial idea to hand-over, unveiling why they turned to Carter Grange to deliver their custom family home.


Having had friends recently finish builds with Carter Grange, Steven and Kelly began by walking through a nearby show home, and fell in love. Determined to do their due diligence, they set out to visit almost ‘every builder in Melbourne’ but resonated with Carter Grange’s ability to customise everything to suit their lifestyle. Meeting with the design team, they listed the requirements for now and the functionality desired for the future, and from there Steven and Kelly’s dream home took shape on paper. 

New to the design/construction journey, the opportunity to be considered in every design choice meant Steven and Kelly’s future home met every need. Being able to really deep-dive into the process allowed even the smallest of decisions to be an intelligent choice, with Steven noting, ‘we had all sorts of ideas’ that were communicated, reviewed and then approached collaboratively. ‘It’s all worked out really really nicely’, Steven explained.


The beauty of a showroom allows the ‘samples to come to life’.

Guiding good decisions by talking through real world wisdom is at the heart of the Carter Grange showroom. ‘It’s so great to see the colours and materials, and you can actually feel it’, explains Steven. Those ‘really really honest, real world tips’ are the foundation blocks for an impeccably maintained home that stays effortlessly on trend.
