About Us

 

Creating a home just for you

“Principal Contractor, John Eggins has long been regarded as one of the finest builders on the Northern Rivers. Backed up by a number of prestigious building awards, his ability to combine his creativity and local knowledge with the clients ideas and desires, results in a unique concept. The design team at Eggins Prestige Homes includes an ‘in-house’ draftsman and the unique opportunity for consultation with John himself who brings years of designing award winning homes in the region, helping you find just the design that will suit your own personal taste and needs.

Once a concept is prepared, a preliminary costing is then possible shortly after the client’s first contact.

Those clients who already have their home plans designed either by an architect or building designer are equally welcomed. Eggins Prestige Homes welcomes the opportunity to quote on plans by other outstanding designers and architects.

OR Thinking of ‘Renovating an Existing Property’

That’s right – EGGINS PRESTIGE HOMES - for great ideas and plans for upgrading and renovating your existing home! John & the team will meet with you and hatch ideas to maximise your existing loved property!

The Building Process

Working closely with professionals in all areas of surveying, engineering, energy consultancy, estimating, supervision and selections & colour consultancy ensures a smooth process and excellent outcome.

The team at Eggins are available to assist you every step of the way. Using established and proven local suppliers and subcontractors, the best the region has to offer, EPH ensures that quality inclusions and selections are available at competitive prices.

Most of all, at the end of the project our aim is for you to be able to say, despite its often negative reputation, that YOUR building process with EGGINS PRESTIGE HOMES was most satisfying and enjoyable!

JOHN EGGINS has been building homes since 1972 on the North Coast of NSW, and has earned an enviable reputation for excellence in all aspects of construction and presentation. After 40 years of having Alstonville as the base of the operation, Eggins Prestige Homes have been in their own purpose built office on River Street in Ballina since 2007.

Birthed as a family business, the friendly and personal atmosphere is deliberately fostered. Many clients remain firm friends long after the building process is completed. This ensures that staff, clients and tradespersons priority is to achieve the best outcome for each client.

Over a number of years, many local schools, churches and charities have found EPH to be a willing supporter. EPH willingly provides work experience for local high school students and supports local charities and groups such as the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service, Rural Bush Fire Brigade, SCU Arts Festival, Carols by Candlelight, Bowlerama etc., to name just a few.

In recent years, we have also ventured into the commercial and educational sector, proving our versatility as a builder.

With the population predicted to grow substantially on the Northern Rivers of NSW over the next decade, Eggins Prestige Homes is quickly establishing a reputation in the growing area of quality renovations.

If you own a property that is in need of a makeover – perhaps you love the location and views but want something freshened up or restored – talk to us at EGGINS PRESTIGE HOMES,  we are  just the company for the job!

Eggins Prestige Homes values the opportunity to enter their projects regularly in MBA Excellence in Building Awards giving opportunity to be judged by experts in their field and ensure their homes maintain the standards of excellence that has become their trademark.

Evidence of their success can be seen by the numerous building awards presented to EPH consistently throughout the business’ history.
