It was my first time building a house, and I didn't have a single clue about what to prepare. Then I met Blake from B1 home, and he helped me from the very beginning to the end. He was very approachable, and was always willing to reach out to me whenever I had a question. Also, he replied and fixed things super quick when I brought up a feedback on something. The whole process went very smoothly with his assistance.

Build with Blake!
The last thing I expected when I put in an enquiry about B1 home designs online was that my partner and I would be signing a contract 2 weeks later. Blake called me the same day I enquired and instead of trying to sell something to us he spent a good 20 minutes asking what we wanted and how he could help us. We went into our first meeting just wanting to see what our position was as we hadn't put much thought into saving a big deposit or finding the right house. Blake brought in Jonni Chin from Wealthplus Lending to handle our finances and did ...an on the spot eligibility check for us, told us where we should aim for and what would be available to us. Blake was the first and last person we spoke to about building our home, we left the meeting and despite advice to explore our options and see what else was available I already felt like we were in the right hands. I was quite sceptical about building with a project home builder and hearing the stories of consultants only interested in getting you across the dotted line - this couldn't be any further from the truth with Blake. He was transparent and informative at every stage and always had our best interests at heart. Blake often designs custom plans for his clients and has a social media page for his work which was important in letting us know that he is invested in his clients. Blake guided us through getting finance, finding the right block of land and then the right house to build. Prestart was a breeze and Rachel was very helpful on pricing inclusions and helping us understand what we could include/exclude. Blake even popped in to check how we were going. We never felt like we had to chase anything up and everyone we have interacted with at B1 so far has been very proactive. Looking forward to seeing our house come together. We would highly recommend Blake @ B1 to anyone looking to building their first home.
Exactly what I ordered and with great Customer service
B1 have been very good to build with. They have catered for our every need along the journey and have tried very hard to ensure our experience was a good one.
Our house was very different to the standard plan, but B1 managed to design it perfectly. The house is amazing and I would 100% build with them again!
Richard W was our sales agent. I recommend him!

5 Stars is not enough!
My partner and I decided to we wanted to look into building our first home in may of 2020. First point of contact was our sales consultant Michael, absolute legend! He really listen to what we were looking for and wanting in our home and worked to make it work within out budget, As first time builders we had no idea what to expect Michael took the time to walk us through everything. He sourced the perfect location and happily changed our drawing plans multiple times until we were happy. could not recommend Michael enough and have to other peopl...e looking to build, after Michael we were introduced to Katy our Pre-Start consultant. Katy is fantastic, such a bubbly personality, she really help us and explained the process, Pre-start is a full day thing it takes time and we changed out mind so many time, Katy was so patient. could not have gotten through prestart without her. Slight hiccup with our bath tub. However, Katy managed to resolve and kept us super happy. Now onto construction. During construction we did have multiple Client liaisons this is mainly because of B1 expanding due to demand with home builds. but EVERY client liaison person we had was fantastic. First was Jamie, Such and awesome dude. Jamie is the type of client liaison that goes above an beyond for his customers and man we can not thank him enough for everything he did for us during the early stages of construction. He was keeping us up to date with every details and as first home builder you have no idea how valuable that is to us We then had Amy, who was great with communication but was our client liaison for such a sort time. Lastly we had Anegla. Another one who goes above an beyond for customer. always ready to help and so so so kind. Our Building supervisors have done an fantastic job also, we had a couple and I feel awful that I cant remember names but so grateful, if something didn't seem right instead of just doing it, they called me to double check and confirm. they have made sure our home is beautiful and constructed with reliable recourses and tradesmen. B1 Home 5 stars is not enough you employ people who care! B1 wasn't the first build we spoke too however was the first builder we felt like we could trust. we had tiny hiccups along the way but nothing that wasn't instantly fixed! We are so grateful and will recommend you to anyone looking to build.

Extremely proactive and excellent client to builder relationship
As a young early 20’s, solo, first home buyer, I was very nervous with building. After the lack of communication and responsiveness from other builders, I was very close to giving up. However, I met Blake Shuttleworth from B1 Homes and from our first meeting, I knew that my build would be seamless and well coordinated if I chose to build with B1 Homes. And so I did! Blake coordinated everything from speaking to developers about my land to ensuring my design fit all my needs.
Blake was very proactive, transparent and ensured that my best inter...ests were always a priority. As I was not familiar with anything that comes with building, he explained every step as simple as possible and listened to my concerns, needs and wants. There was no surprises and everything went smoothly. Blake is extremely knowledgeable and prompt in his replies (he would even reply to my many questions on a Friday/Saturday night!). It has been a pleasure to work with Blake and I am very thankful that my first home builder journey has been a breeze due to Blake at B1 Homes. I would highly recommend Blake to anyone looking to build. Blake’s customer care services exceeded my expectations and is an asset to B1 Homes :) Looking forward to seeing the finish product.
Excellent Builder and Team
As a first home buyer and nil knowledge of building , one off my friend referred SURESH SAMA (House and Land Specialist of B1 homes) to start our journey with B1 homes. Suresh was extremely knowledgeable & helpful in changing our home design multiple times and very prompt in communicating to all my queries. B1 homes always exceeded my expectations in delivering the given building schedule.I would highly recommend Suresh & B1 homes team for their Integrity,Quality,Flexibility and Exceptional customer service to anyone who is looking to build a home.
Awesome communication and follow ups!
As first time builders we were very relieved to have someone like Blake Shuttleworth working with us. Blake was extremely helpful and excellent with his communication. He walked us through everything and made sure we were well informed on the process of building through B1. Blake went above and beyond for us, if anything ever came up he would call us right away and he would always make time for us if we had questions and needed to call him.
My partner and I are very excited to have our first home being built and we can’t say thank you enough t...
Karla McLean is the best!
We began our home building journey with a builder where we felt like we weren't really being supported well and because of all the government grants we felt we were given least priority as we wanted a custom design house, They couldn't give us a time frame as to when we could get our building contract and the estimated date of construction, which would mean we could miss out on the building grants. So we decided to move builder and one of our friends recommended B1 homes, we were introduced to Karla Mclean, one of the ...
Stress Free and Easy
This is my first time building. I went looking for months at different display homes coming in contact with so many different building companies that would only offer me half of what I wanted on my budget making the whole process so confusing and frustrating. I then meet Blake from B1 Homes after just one conversation I was confident and comfortable that Blake knew what I wanted from my house and land package and in the exact location I wanted. I could not be any happier. From then on it has been open communication and any questions or concerns I have had they have answered without any hesitation not matter how silly on my part. Highly recommended
An Infallible Experience
As young couple we ventured through many display homes and were often not taken seriously. We decided to call around building company’s when we came across Blake at B1 Homes. Blake never questioned our ability or financial situation and was always very friendly and respectful.
Blake worked closely along side our chosen mortgage broker to ensure a smooth process and kept us updated along the way. Not only did he draw us a custom floor plan which incorporated all of our needs and wants for a house within our budget, he also helped us secure a b...lock of land. He is very honest and has always worked in our best interest, promptly answering any queries and questions no matter how silly they might sound. Overall B1 Homes has made building our first home a very enjoyable experience and we look forward to seeing the process come together.

This is one happy chappy
This is my first build and it has gone amazingly. The job is not finished. We started with an amazingly bubbly agent called Melanie. As my lot was a rear entry plot we ended you with a custom build. Mel guided us through the process making it as easy as possible. It ended up giving us a 4 bed, 2 bath house, with one of the biggest on-site I have seen. The build has gone reasonably quickly. The tradesmen who have come onsite have done an amazing job.
UPDATE: The build is now finished and I am over the moon with our NEW HOME.
So happy with how it turned out colour are amazing, house is simplistic, just how we wanted it.
B1 homes. Excellent service and product
B1 were awesome in all they did.
Really friendly staff and hassle free service from start to finish. Caring and helpful attitude. Build management was very organised and smooth. Always on time or ahead of time including meetings on site.
I would highly recommend B1 to anyone wanting their own home with minimal troubles
Building made easy
I went in to building process not knowing a whole lot. Blake helped me along the way with the process by providing me with guidance and honest opinions when came to the picking and choosing of items. Highly recommend having a chat with Blake if you feel the building process can be overwhelming/daunting.
My Baldivis house and land package by B1 homes
Thank you to Blake, Adam and Jo for assisting me in my first home. Blake has been amazing from start of the build all the way to the end. Adam made finance a breeze and you could always get a reply from Jo with updates on the build. A real pleasure all the way.
I have a beautiful 4 bedroom double garage home on a huge 430square block for 350000. Sure it doesn’t have a garden in the back or inside paint yet, but the quality of the build can not be beat. Thank you to everyone involved. Very pleased and could definitely recommend B1 homes
First home build
B1 did a fantastic job with managing our build from the designs to the build process. There was an issue with how the lot was divided and connecting the power but B1 took care of everything. They kept us informed, were always happy to walk us through our home (even on the weekend when my mum was visiting and wanted to see it)
Workmanship & Quality:
We have been in our home for 5 months and have not had any issues. Right after the move in we had a few small things like the fan in the bathroom not working and they got someone ...
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.
Hi, Can you send me a contact number or an email address and we will be InTouch with the options we can offer you.
