After spending 20 years working in the building and construction industry as a project manager, managing director Russell Thompson formed Milestone Homes in early 2005. Russell’s experience extends over a wide range of projects including urban development, commercial & residential building, sport and recreation, parks and leisure, petrochemical, heavy industrial , waste & resource and mining infrastructure.


During the last ten years, Milestone has grown and delivered numerous building projects ranging in value up $100M for private, local and state government clients. This strong background in project management has allowed us to apply invaluable skills and attributes to the residential building market, with the first Milestone Home successfully completed in 1992.


Driven by determination, excellence, and the ideal coastal lifestyle, we’ve constantly refined our craft to become one of the leading home builders on the Sunshine Coast. Today, we design and build a range of energy-efficient, contemporary homes that stand out from the crowd.


The Thompson family comes from a long line of builders, with Russell’s grandfather issued one of the first Queensland builder’s licenses back in the early 1930s. Long hours and manpower saw homes built from scratch, starting with felling and milling the timber from local forests. The Coalbank church was a notable build by Russell’s grandfather in the mid 1930s, along with numerous farm houses and sheds in the Oakey and Acland area.
