As an interstate investor it was absolutely key for me to find the right building company to handle the whole process from the design, approval process and ultimately to provide a quality solid built home to withstand the harsh environmental conditions in the Bowen Region.

Both Shayne and Shell were easy to deal with and very professional at the same time. Nothing was ever and issue and in fact the whole process was enjoyable.

Shayne’s attention to detail shows in the quality of home he produces and takes pride in when handing over on completion.

I highly recommend Shayne and Shell for any construction needs.


We would like to thank Double SM Developments for building our new dream home, they did a professional job, were great to deal with and always kept us informed throughout the building. Any changes with regards to chosen tiles or bench tops in unavailability they worked around with no dramas, until we were able to choose an alternative one. There had been no issues if we identified something that needed fixing; they were straight around to sort it out with no questions asked. We would highly recommend Shayne, Shelly and their team to anyone building a new home, top job guys. Thanks again.

My building experience with Double SM Developments was just short of miraculous. But reading
through all the beautiful testimonials to the good quality of building, the efficiency, having good ideas,
finishing the house on time, etc.- there is not much I can ad. Just thank you for a job well done in
record time (a real Christmas present!).

Everybody who is going to build with Shayne and Shelly can expect the very best service possible.

To us, this idea of building our first home in Bowen was more than daunting. My husband and I went to meet with Shayne last year in June, and we came back to Perth sitting on “it” further, as we both weren’t sure whether we should, or shouldn’t go ahead with the project. After evaluating a couple of other builders, we decided to go ahead with Shayne as his quotation reflected true value for money.

The entire process is as smooth as a sewing machine. Our house was completed on time. The end result is simply amazing. We have absolutely no hesitation to recommend Shayne to any home-owners.

Thank you for making our building experience so easy and stress free. You have built us a beautiful home, on budget and very quickly. We now have a unique home, specifically designed for our block, to take advantage of the view and breezes. You are both a pleasure to deal with and I would recommend Double SM Developments to anyone wanting a quality product for reasonable cost.

We have had the pleasure of dealing with Double SM Developments on several building projects, including a four unit complex, (from beginning through to landscaping and full completion), and several renovation projects ranging from retaining walls to complete refurbs.

Our experience with Shayne & Shell is that they are reliable and trustworthy. They communicate well with us and work to a great standard. We have a high level of trust with them, as we live outside the Bowen area and rarely attend the building sites.

We have always been happy with what they have done for us, so much so, that we intend to utilise them on our next project, a further four unit complex, later this year. That’s the best recommendation we can give them!

I cannot speak highly enough about Double SM Developments and the service they offer, no non-sense, no cutting corners and the end product speaks for itself. The task of building a house is daunting enough but Shayne and Shelly were so helpful every step of the way from start to finish. Being able to design your own house is one thing, having a builder to build it to the highest quality is another, so don’t chance the rest; go with Double SM. You won’t be disappointed.

As a previous home owner the worry of finding a Professional Builder is not an easy task to do some times, I made a decision to build my home with Double SM Developments in Bowen. The process from start to finish was made easy, and every stage of build I was well informed and any questions that I had were answered promptly. I found that Double SM Developments took pride in the job they do, which resulted in a beautiful finished home. I have no regrets, and would be getting them to build any future home I invest my money too.

!Happy Home Owner!

Just wanted to thank you for the wonderful job you did building our home in Bowen.

This was our first time building so we were learning along the way. You both made this journey easy and stress free.

For the most part of this we were living 10 hours away but still you delivered ahead of completion date and made it seamless .

The team also has excellent ongoing support for our property; I wouldn’t hesitate in using you or recommending you to all my friends and family.

Cheers Belinda and Luke Charet
