So far good
Greg was very supportive and easy to talk to. Good support. He explained the initial process in details. There was a miscommunication regarding a meeting but I think we are behind it. This company was recommended by some of my friends so willing to give it a go for our PPOR.
We originally explored options with another builder and found B1 homes were keen to help us and get the ball rolling instantly! Loving the experience so far. It has been so easy with Blake and Adam assuring they’ll be with us the whole way through. Looking forward to our new home.
First Home Builder
After spending a significant time looking for an established home with no luck I had almost given up on having a home of my own. However after speaking to Richard Wetterhahn he showed me what was possible. He is highly professional and extremely organised, making the pre-construction phase a breeze. I highly recommend Richard and B1 homes.

4x2 The Value build
Overall B1 homes were very efficient in completing my home. I am pleased with the customer service provided throughout the build. You get what you pay for per se. Rodney Stone is an asset, he was always reachable for start to finish and thank you Adam Austin for persevering with my financing.

Two very happy clients.
My wife and are exceptionally happy that we decided to build with B1. We started the process late November 2017 and started the build around Feb 2018, almost exactly 12 months later we are in our wonderful new home.
I have rated it at 4 Star, would have preferred to have given a 4.5 Star. Our only criticism is with the "Sales" part of the process. We were told a price for the build minus what we thought was our discount from the builder, unbeknown to us the discount had already been allowed for. Colin from the sales department called us and...after some brief discussions we came to an amicable agreement. This was our only bad experience of the whole journey. When the build started our supervisor Matt was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. All through the build we were kept up to date with the proceedings from Tanya, Pamela and Jessica all of whom were always polite and very very efficient. Whenever we had a query or just a question to ask, all of the office staff were there for us.. As for Matt we couldn't have asked for a better supervisor, his attention to detail was exceptional, which created for us everything we had hoped for in our new home. As Matt would say "Happy days" Thankyou to all of you at B1 Homes
Overall a Good Experience
1. We found that B1 homes offers exceptional designs compared to the average market. The interior design was good with a good use of space and maximum allowed zero lot boundary walls.
2. Harry (marketing) spent so much time explaining the building process and driving us around showing many display properties, which was really appreciated. We did have experience with some other companies where the marketing team wouldn’t even bother getting out of the office.
3. We found the built quality is good (however should wait for a coupl...
Our build was awesome as it was handled by the best supervisor in the state of WA. The workmanship was to a high standard, as all the trades were hand picked and you could tell they love their job.
The only issue we had was we had about 3 ladies look after our job during construction and it was hard to get a clear track of what was included and what wasn't during the build. The issues were sorted out straight away in most cases.
We had a different kind of set up with our build as it wasn't just off the plan build. Most of items were supplied by us and we knew our costs from early on at contract signing.
All in all was a pleasant process.
Questions & Answers
Its almost been a year since I first contacted B1 homes last May 2018 and almost 7 months since I bought the land and my prestart . It’s really stressfull that till now the building process is still not started. is there anything you can do to speed up the process? thanks
We agree, that sounds like an unusually long time. Unfortunately we haven't been able to identify your job in our system from the details you've posted here. Could you forward your name or job number, or even the construction address to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll investigate for you.
Thanks for sending through your details. I think you're generally aware of the circumstances that have caused your delays so far, but for other readers here, I'd like to provide some answers.
In short, there has only been 2 working days since the 5th October, that your job hasn't been in the hands of your Shire, and it continues there today. That's 2 days in nearly 6 months! These are issues specific to your block and your Shire. We'd like to be able to give you certainty around when your job will commence on site, but until we have control of the job, we don't have that certainty, although we feel confident that it's close.
We had Final Documents ready for you way back in early November, which would normally mean we're only days or a week or 2 away from commencing on site, but unfortunately, your shire released a new planning policy only a few weeks prior to your planning application being lodged last October. This is the ultimate cause of your delays.
We offered solutions to help achieve the quickest planning approval possible, but it took a while to evolve those solutions into plans that you, and then your Shire were comfortable accepting. Ultimately the Planning approval wasn't received until earlier this month.
We now have the application for your Building Permit in with your shire, and would hope that we have a smooth process there, allowing us to commence on site in April.
We're looking forward to getting started on your new home almost as much as you are.
We are building with WSH who have now gone into Administration. We are up to our Completion Stage with a number of defective and incomplete work. Is this something you would be able to provide assistance with?
Hi Sorry to hear that, unfortunately we only build in Perth, good luck with completing your home.
Hi there, just wondering whether you guys have an option for low savings loans (without the guarantor)?
Love the house designs you have.
Thanks for your email, yes we do, I will arrange for one of our consultants to contact you and discuss the options.
