About JMH Design


JMH Design are leaders when it comes to innovative and quality custom home designs in the Brisbane and Sunshine coast areas. We understand that every family is unique and as such every family has unique needs when it comes to the functionality and aesthetics of their home. We listen to your needs and use our expertise to design a custom plan that will help bring the vision of your home to life.

JMH Design was founded in 2012 with a desire to make the home design process simple, flexible and affordable for our clients. Since that time we’ve grown into a multi-disciplinary team and established a reputation for design excellence in the Brisbane area.

At JMH Design we create house plans that will meet the needs of your growing family and that will work for your budget. We offer flexibility in that you can work with your own builder of choice, or if you don’t yet know a builder we can refer you to a number of builders in the Brisbane area.

We can take you through the house design process from your earliest visions and dreams for your home through to developing workable plans that make use of our town planning and building expertise. We can help bring your plans to life through innovative technologies such as realistic renders and fly-throughs that will allow you visualise your home could look prior to building.

JMH Design collaborates with builders, town planners, private certifiers and structural engineers to ensure your design needs are met at every stage of your home design journey.

Whether you’re a homeowner looking to renovate your existing home or if you’re looking to embark on a new build, JMH Design can create a custom design solution that serves the needs of your family.

When I first started designing my house and what I wanted to do with it, I was stressed out about how hard it would be. Then I spoke to Jacob and he helped design what I wanted and made everything really easy
— Frazer, Wavell Heights
We were recommended Jacob through a friend and from the outset we were impressed with his diligence and professionalism. The service offered was to a very high level and enabled us to undertake a large-scale renovation with confidence in the final product. Jacob understood our vision from the first meeting and was able to recommend various design options which helped significantly in finalising our design. We would have no reservation recommending JMH Designs to friends or family.
— Ben and Jess, Windsor.
I used JMH Design for a large deck at the rear of my property. I’m extremely happy with his work. Jacob helped create the desired look and features I had in mind. The designs were outstanding. I found JMH Design to be efficient and smooth process when discussing designs and drafts. Jacob kept in contact throughout the design process and I would highly recommend him to my friends and family. Thanks again.

Shane Rogerson: Building Design Consultant


Shane’s passion for building design started at a young age. Some of his earliest memories are of going to work with his dad, a builder and drafter, and being fascinated by the design and building process.

Shane completed a Bachelor of Design (Landscape Architecture) at QUT and not long after built his own home. It was the building of this home that led to his completing a Diploma in Building Design and led him back to the construction industry that he loves.

Shane loves building homes that are perfectly suited to the Queensland Climate. His background in Landscape Architecture means he has a strong understanding of site considerations and allows him to build homes that are comfortable year round in the warm Queensland environment.

His favourite types of projects to work on are family homes. He loves listening to the needs of families and designing a house that works for them. Shane feels that his greatest reward is seeing growing families enjoy their Queensland lifestyle to the fullest in a custom home that’s been designed just for them.
