Sustainable Home Caboolture project developer was Modern Investment Group; TVS Partnerships designed the home; and it was built by Accord Homes. The Caboolture Shire Council also supported the project.The house design explored ways in which a typical, large suburban house could be used flexibly to facilitate different and multiple occupant living arrangements within the one house. It addressed many sustainability issues that have been ignored by typical project home designs.

The design of Sustainable Home Caboolture has been an integrated design process with the project builders, Accord Homes, having input into the project from early in the design process. This has been an important factor in achieving cost goals. One of the key aims of the project was to keep the capital cost of the house within the range of other new houses in the Central Lakes Estate.
