Owner Building has been part of our DNA since 1987, we have seen the problems and the solutions.

Unsuccessful Owner Builders try to cut corners on the building materials, they do not compare ‘apple v apples’ and go for the cheapest, which is not what is the most suitable for the job required, screw down the sub-contractors on price, so they rush to finish the job and the short cuts the take, come back to affect the quality of the job in years to come.



Owner Building satisfies two of the most treasured elements to most Australian lives:

  • Firstly, it is creatively and physically satisfying. Building or renovating your own home to your own specifications and budgets is fantastic. Home ownership is Australian; and
  • Secondly, as a rule Owner Builders can save approximately 38% over a project home or trades managed renovations. 38% straight back into your pocket. Owner Building is financially rewarding, creates family wealth and builds homes as well as houses.
