As I sit here in my office, staring out the window at the construction site next door, I can't help but feel a sense of dread. It seems like every day, there's another crew of workers tearing down what was once beautiful home and replacing it with a sterile, soulless structure that will be just like all the others.
It's enough to make anyone nostalgic for the good old days when homes were built with care and craftsmanship, and everyone took pride in their work. But sadly, those days are long gone. Or are they?
As it turns out, there is still one company in Brisbane that takes pride in their work and cares about their clients. Livit Construction is a family-owned business that specialises in residential design and construction and takes great care to ensure that each home they build is unique and tailored to the client's needs.

Livit Construction is committed to completing your project on time and on budget, so you can move into your new home as soon as possible.
The average cost to build a 4 bedroom house in Queensland is $1,200,000. This includes the cost
of land, construction, and finishes.
Let's say you pick a one-story floor plan made of brick with a tiled roof. To break down the average cost, it would cost:
- Land: $300,000
If you have land already, this number would be lower.
- Construction: $600,000
this will include the cost of the build, council approvals, and project management.
- Finishes: $300,000
this will include the cost of flooring, painting, kitchen and bathroom fixtures, and landscaping.
Of course, the final cost will depend on the specific materials and finishes you choose for your home.
If you go for a luxury finish, the cost will be on the higher end. A luxury finish will include the following finishes:
- Stone benchtops in the kitchen:
the stone could be granite, marble, or limestone.
- Hardwood floors:
the hardwood floors could be oak, maple, walnut, or teak.
- High-end appliances:
the appliances could be Miele, Bosch, or Sub-Zero.
- Luxury bathroom fixtures:
the bathroom fixtures could be from brands such as Duravit, Hansgrohe, or Toto.
If you want to keep the cost down, you can opt for a more basic finish. A basic finish will include the following finishes:
- Laminate benchtops in the kitchen:
the laminate could be from brands such as Formica or Laminex.
- Carpet or vinyl floors:
the carpet could be from brands such as Mohawk or Shaw, and the vinyl could be from brands such as Armstrong or Mannington.
- Standard appliances:
the appliances could be from brands such as GE, Frigidaire, or Maytag.
- Standard bathroom fixtures:
the bathroom fixtures could be from brands such as American Standard or Delta.
The cost of construction has increased in recent years, so it's important to factor this into your budget.
If you can't find a floor plan that you like, Livit Construction can custom design a floor plan for you. We will work with you to understand your needs and wants and create a floor plan that is perfect for you.
The cost of a custom floor plan design will depend on the size and complexity of the project.
