Fantastic Work !
Workmanship was great. The final finish was great. The supervisor was awesome. Very happy with it all. I would definitely use B1 homes again when building. Great work guys appreciate it!
Outstanding job! Thanks B1 Homes!!
I recently built my first home and chose to build with B1 Homes. The whole experience was a complete pleasure from start to finish and I can’t believe how fast it went up!
B1’s friendly staff took care of all my concerns and guided me throughout construction. Communication was easy and all my emails were answered in a timely fashion, along with weekly emails received from Erin updating me on the progress of my house.. It was exciting to find out what was happening on site each week!
Craftsmanship was excellent and I had no issues with any w...ork done. The final product was better than I could have imagined! So happy! Plus, I had the keys in 19 weeks. A week earlier than the promised 20 weeks! So fast! A big thanks to Harry, Pam, Erin and Jess and a Special thanks to Jim Holland. Jim’s friendly, honest and passion for quality made the whole experience comforting and reassuring. We knew we were in good hands with Jim and the B1 team :)
Dream home come true!
Oh boy this one has been such an amazing journey from start to finish!!
If you're a first home buyer without a clue as to where to start or an experienced home buyer with a lot of things already in mind for customisation, look no further!!
Know that B1 will take care of you and make sure you feel comfortable throughout the build without pressuring you into anything you don't want! you WILL get the home that you really want!
B1 has taken care of us very very well to completion even though this build wasn't easy (or standard) for them!
We had ...a completely custom build, drawn from scratch, double storey home with over 200 prestart items (almost everything changed) that took them roughly 11 months to complete. There are a lot to praise about them, so if you're keen to learn about the details, then read on..
Our home, our castle
B1 homes has done a fantastic build of our little cottage. The house was completed in under 20 weeks. Staff have been friendly and professional, answering all my queries in a helpful and timely manner. This is I and my daughter’s first home. B1 homes has exceeded our expectations and this indeed is “our castle.”
We are thrilled. Thanks Jim, Erin, Jess and co.

Fantastic New House
I was looking to build a new home and met Sam Gusic the B1 sales representative at the Brabham display. Sam is such an asset to B1 Homes as he was always there to answer any questions required and nothing was ever too much trouble, he is 100% customer focused and always a phone call away for any small problems to be sorted. I would recommend Sam to anyone who is thinking of building a new home.
The Pre Start and Administration team at B1 Pam, Jessica and Erin were always on hand during my build process doing a great job answering my enquiries....
This is my first house and my previous builder went bankrupt. So, I am grateful that I decided to continue with B1 homes.
The customer liaison person (Jessica) was very helpful and promptly answered my many emails. The site supervisor (Gav) I met with a few times was great and fixed all the small problems I found.
The minor issues I have had was dealt with swiftly and professionally. Some minor frustrations at times with communication. However, a very minimal amount of issues at PCI and clear that the workmanship and build quality of the property were really good.
I would definitely recommend B1 Homes to anyone decided to build.
A big thank you to the team: Gav, Jessica & Pam!
We have been very pleased with B1 Homes, our sales rep was fantastic along with our pre start meeting and contact with the office. We didn't get to meet our site supervisor who left just before out meeting. The site supervisor we did meet with was great and fixed all the small problems we found.
The house went up fast and we are more than happy with the finished result the workmanship is spot on.
We would highly recommend B1 homes to anyone wanting to build.
Happy and excited about my new home
Started off a little rocky with a misunderstanding about ceiling height in the open plan area and front elevation, once sorted out the process went quite smoothly.
Prestart also went without any problems and Pam was very helpful in picking up some details I had not thought of, like extra data point, plumbing for my new fridge and front door recess for adding a security door later on.
I was very impressed with the construction and how well each stage of the build was completed in a timely manner. The only problem I had was the incorrect toile...
The ups and downs
I can not fault the build quality, any concerns I had when I was able to speak with my supervisor or to my agent they where handled quickly and professionally. I love my new home it's nearly everything I had wanted. This leads me to the downs.
At prestart I had some requests that I was told were standard and not to worry about it. I had requested that all power cables in the wall be put in conduit, it didn't matter how much it would cost (growing up in old homes I knew it would be easier to change in the future if my wiring needs changed) not...just on a angle grinder cut channel. I was told not to worry as it's standard. Alas this wasn't standard and now I am stuck with the current wiring configuration unless I want external conduit on my walls. The second let down was after purchasing a package to have 20 down lights installed the agent told me she would throw an extra one in for the hallway in front of the bathroom and toilet. However this was not done. Ill be extra vigilant to get these in writing in the future. There was also issues when it came to the build guarantee as they had lost my paper work. They did however pay in the end. Ups and downs. Love the build but it was a little rocky along the way.
Two very happy customers!! :)
As first home owners we were not sure what to expect, We were very suprised and happy with the service that Sam Gusic had given us in the B1 display home in Brabham. He was very welcoming, understanding and reassuring. We had Adam Austin dealing with the finance side of things with us, He was very understanding aswell and helped us to understand the process of being approved for finance. Our building process was actually very good with little to no issues throughout. Any small thing we picked up along the way was followed up by Sam. I must say ...Sam's customer service was amazing. My partner and I spoke with Sam alot throughout our build and built a good relationship with him throughout. Sam was very helpful and made the building journey very easy and stress free. Jessica in admin was also very helpful with answering our questions and getting back to us quickly. We are now nearly 2 weeks post key handover and we are extremely happy with our home! We would like to say a very big thank you to the team at B1 homes, You have made our dream into a reality! We would also like to say a huge thank you to Sam Gusic, You were amazing throughout the entire build and very patient, understanding and helpful through out our building journey. I would highly recommend B1 homes to everyone! I would also highly recommend speaking with Sam Gusic if anyone is looking to build with B1 homes :)

Amazing team, very happy
This was our first time building a house and we would really like to thank Matt and the team for making it such a great experience. It was delivered on time on budget and packed full of extras that make it a great home to live in. Love the house and the quality finishes throughout. Everyone in the neighbourhood was impressed with the site cleanliness, speed of the build and the quality of the workmanship.
This is my first house and I'm happy to say that I'm greatfullthat i built with B1 homes. I was able to have my house built in 6 months with no lose in quality and supported all the way with the friendly staff
Thanks for a great experience building!
We were surprised at how well the build went, after so many friends and family had issues who had built with other builders. B1 were efficient and professional throughout. Jessica and Pam were super helpful and promptly answered my many emails! The only disappointing part, was receiving a late invoice that was supposed to be sent at the start of construction- though if that's the worst part- than it's not so bad at all! Really enjoyed the weekly updates on where the house was at during construction. Thanks B1 for building our first house! We can't wait to move in and make it a home!
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
A place to call our home
When we started this journey 12 months ago, we did not expect this to be a smooth and easy journey as we had heard different stories about building a house. However, looking at our lovely home now, we are so glad that we took a leap of faith and decided to build our first home with B1. It was beyond our expectation, and everyone at B1 has made it possible for our dream to come true.
It started with Colin, our sales rep. Colin won us over with his experience in the field and provided us with a plan that was practical and fitted our budget pe...rfectly. As first home buyers, we didn't know exactly what we wanted, but Colin patiently guided us through the process, gave us a great design for our house (that captures all our wants and needs) and answered all our questions in great details no matter how silly our questions were :). After signing the contract, we met with Tanya for our pre-start consultation. Tanya had made it as easy as possible for us with her great advice on colour selection and product knowledge. Knowing we had no prior building experiences, she pointed out the practical upgrades that were often missed by those building their first home. When we saw the finished product, we cannot help but think about how much of a difference those extra little things actually made. Once the construction started, Jess and Wanda gave us weekly updates on the process, so we were always up to date with the build. They were very helpful whenever we had any questions, of which there were a lot. Matt was our construction supervisor, and he did a superb job with our house. We had an external inspector to check on the construction of the house, and the inspector told us that we had a very, very good build.
Pleasantly surprised! Had the perfect experience.
I had my contract signed in June 2018 , my house foundation poured by B1 Homes around mid Aug 2018. My new house was finished by end of Jan 2019.
During this time, I received nothing but perfect experience. I was quoted a very good price by the sales person. I found Damien Clancy to be extremely helpful and patient. I made him amend the quote several times but Damien made the process so easy for me. I found him very responsive and flexible. But what i loved most about Damien was how he always replied to my calls and e-mails no matter how busy h...

What a Journey!
We had an exceptional experience with B1, we were sold on building through B1 from our very first meeting with our Sales Building Consultant Kane, Kane was extremely helpful and catered to our every need, he was super patient with us whilst we were trying to find an secure a block and design our own home which unfortunately took some time and loads of backwards and forwards. Unfortunately we had lots of bank delays and had to change banks before construction started which unfortunately was a terrible experience and left us feeling that the buil...d would probably be as painful as the finance was, but we were pleasantly surprised with an incredibly smooth build process!! If it wasn't for Kane we would have pulled the plug on the build due to all the bank delays we had. Luckily we didn't! The B1 team throughout our near two year journey have been absolutely amazing, Tanya and then Pam our Pre Start Consultants were fantastic at answering all questions and catering to my Husband who is in the building industry who had loads of his own requirements and standards and must haves. We were then handed over to Jessica who took care of us during construction updating us weekly and answering any build or progress questions immediately, we lived for our weekly Wednesday email update. Our Site Supervisor Adrian and his team where absolutely amazing, we got to meet a few of our builders on site which was really awesome to meet the people that put a huge amount of effort into building our home!! Adrian was absolutely fantastic, he gave us loads of helpful hints and happily endured my endless questions and note taking! Also a big thank you to Karen in accounts for getting all our invoices through super quickly and being patient with our crazily slow bank. Even though we didn't get the dream house we originally wanted due to frustrating bank delays we are absolutely thrilled with the final product, the immaculate attention to detail and the endless help and assistance we got from the B1 team!! Thank you so very much for an incredible experience, we greatly appreciate all the time and effort you all gave to us and our first home, Josh and Roxanne
Good Quality Build
Thanks to the team at B1 Homes for a job well done. The litte issues we've had was dealt with swiftly and professionally. Everything was done according to the specifications. They've maintained their build time guarantee even though our house was completely customised with loads of extras. We love our new home and would reccomend B1 Homes to our family and friends.
Initially the design process was very smooth with great advice and a personalized approach. Pre start and selections wer smoothly handled with expert and honest advice. Once the building process commenced he's progressed quickly and efficiently. Some minor frustrations at times with communication, however site was maintained to an impeccable standard throughout and everything progressed on track with what was agreed upon. Very minimal amount of issues at PCI and clear that the workmanship and build quality of the property was exceptional.
B1homes-Best building company ever
Very well managed build. We are extremely happy with the workmanship of the build. It's definitely built to the best quality. It's just perfect. Excellent communication throughout the whole building process. Never dreamed of owning a home like what we built for a low cost. B1homes has made that possible and we are extremely grateful for it. B1 homes have really put our best interest first and made this whole process comfortable and easy. I just want to thank the team at B1homes for their excellent service.
Amazing build, amazing customer service!
Everything about our build experience was bang on point! From the initial sale and budget estimate, to the pre-start selection process, to the actual finished product, B1 delivered everything they said they would, exceptionally!! The whole team (Stacy, Pam, Matt) are not only knowledgeable but go well above & beyond to help/advise when needed. B1 will definitely be our first choice when we build our next home.
Thanks so much B1.
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...
14 Weeks from Slab Down to PCI - Fantastic
During our early engagement with B1 Homes, we found the Sales Reps to be extremely driven and passionate about providing us with our first family home on an awkward sized block. We had clear specifications and I personally felt that we were fairly demanding in our needs. Our budget wasn't the largest but the Rep made it all possible by staying persistent and professional. She delivered exactly what we asked for, within budget.
Things took a slight u-turn during our planning phase post pre-start. We had issues with the council in relation to...parking and at this particular moment, we felt that B1 could have argued our case a little better with the Shire as opposed to always adhering to their demands. We felt frustrated that B1's Shire Liaison didn't have our best interests at the forefront of her requests and simply followed a process. We engaged the land owner at this point as we were close to throwing in the towel. Eventually between all parties involved, we came up with a feasible proposal which thankfully got approval. We were back on track. Once our slab was poured, it was all systems go. As we lived close by to our build, we visited site almost daily. To our amazement, we watched the build unfold before our eyes and at a pace we didn't believe was possible. The Site Supervisor was clearly well organised and there wasn't a day that passed when something hadn't changed. Having worked in construction for 16 years myself, I was always assuming that I would be picking fault with trades and finishes. In reality, I hardly had to mention anything. A couple of snagging bits here or there in relation to painting was all I had to bring to their attention, and once I had sent through requests, almost the next day things had been rectified. We are very impressed with the quality of finishes considering our budget and finishes like tiling in my opinion, are stand out. Everyone who has seen them say exactly the same. In summary, I would recommend B1 Homes to anyone. I believe that they are the best project Builder in their category in Perth.
Fantastic build experience and a quality home
I had a dream run with B1 Homes, who made the building process so easy and stress free. As a first home buyer and building on my own, B1 Homes took care of everything and made sure I was kept in the loop at every step of the process.
The time was taken in the design and planning stage to ensure the home was functional, and that nothing was missed whilst also fitting in with my budget. Nothing was ever made to be "too hard" and worked tirelessly to ensure the end product was amazing.
The build time is something I was extremely surprised and im...pressed with. I was told by many people that build times always blow out, however mine was the complete opposite with the build finishing well before estimated deadlines. It was very well managed by my site supervisor Adrian who ensured that all deadlines were met and that quality assurance was adhered to throughout the entire process- thank you Adrian! In summary, I had the best experience throughout the whole build process (with a special big thanks to Colin and Marianna as my sales reps who moved heaven and earth to get me exactly what I wanted and more in a first home, Jess Wright and Wanda Jansen who kept me in the loop all through out and Karen Bennett, just to name a few) and would recommend the Scott Park Group to all my friends/family/colleagues who are looking to build a new home.
B1 Quality build
It was a quick and efficient process from start to finish - the best was seeing the progress in front of your eyes and realizing the dream of having your own home - designed by yourself with all your specifications! The B1 team are wonderful and no question is too much, Adrian my building supervisor is so experienced and fabulous to deal with!
Any question I had was quickly dealt with and sorted efficiently and to my satisfaction. Would definitely recommend and I will certainly use B1 again for my next build!
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.
