Highly recommend B1- excellent from start to finish!
Our experience with B1 was excellent from start to finish & we cant recommend them highly enough! Building your first home is always going to be nerve-wracking & there is a lot that you do not know about the whole process. However we could not have chosen a better builder to go with- they made the process as smooth as possible, they were open, honest, trustworthy, reliable & most importantly respected our budget- not once did they try & fleece us for anymore money. They acted with integrity throughout They stuck to the 20 week build guarantee ...& the house was completed to a very high standard. In the early stages Damien Clancy was amazing in interpreting our many ideas & translating our vision into reality. He got to know us as individuals so that the house would be crafted specifically for us & our needs. Our builder, Jimmy, demonstrated incredibly high attention to detail & we could trust in him to be across every detail of the build. And above all was Erin Chittleborough, our Client Liaison Officer. She well & truly exceeded our expectations- I have never dealt with someone so professional, friendly & that offered such a HIGH standard of customer service. She always responded really quickly, answered every single one of our questions without making us feel stupid & made everything more easy for us. We loved Erin & felt really lucky to have her to support us through the process.
Cannot fault B1 homes with the management of our home and we are always kept informed of the progress of our build. The workmanship and quality of our home is excellent. Everything has been handled very professional and everyone dealing with us has been very obliging even with the smallest of queries. Would build a B1 home again. Thank you B1 homes for making it enjoyable and exciting. Thank you Dave M, Michelle C, Gav and Erin and thanks to let's finance Adam.
Love our house and the quality of the build is excellent. Cost was bang on the quoted price and was a dream to build.
1st Class Builder with a 1st Class Team - Highly Recommended
We built a 1-storey home on a sloping plot. The B1 team (Frank, Adrian, Pam, Erin) exceeded our expectations. They handled our complicated project extremely well. Through out the build, B1 never compromised on quality. We never had to worry about being short changed at any point. I would highly recommend B1 for a first class building experience and a high quality build.
How well was the build managed
The whole process from the pre-start, contract management to build management was handled very professionally. They are able to deliver on their ...
One very happy first home owner!
B1 has made building my first home the dream experience! Stacey in the sales team was extremely helpful from day 1 and worked with me to create a design I loved, at an affordable price.
The entire construction process from siteworks through to PCI was a breeze. My site supervisor, Matt, was exceptional and went above and beyond in making sure everything went to schedule, and any minor issue was dealt with immediately. I expected building to be a slightly stressful experience, but I was left with nothing to worry about!
It's very clear that their trades all take pride in their work and the quality of workmanship was of a very high standard.
Thank you again to all of the team at B1!

Hands down - the best building experience you could wish for!
How well managed was your build?
Spectacularly well managed! My building focal point and site supervisor were so easily contactable and had great communication! They handled every part of the build which made my life so much easier!
How was the workmanship and build quality of your property?
workmanship, build quality and site trades people were fantastic! My end product is so beautiful - it honestly is a dream come true to have the home of my dreams which came in at the budget and was so quickly built!
If you had any issues pre, post, or ...during construction, how satisfied are you with how the company handled them? There was asbestos found on the block before my slab went down - I was notified on the same day that it happened, she was so helpful, and the entire block was cleaned and disposed of within 2/3 days! amazing turn around time considering how dangerous asbestos is to deal with. It was at that point I knew that was going to be a great company to build with. Very professional and safe. Very impressive. How did your final cost compare to your estimated cost?
I love my new house! Thanks Team!
We are the one of the happy clients with B1 homes. Our supervisor Matt made a lovely house for us and we really enjoy living in our new house. We had a few issues along the way with the sales team but except for that, all the workmanship is high standard and good finishes. Our site supervisor Matt was professional and very patient when I had queries he really listened and helped me to understand about my queries and suggested some solutions. We really appreciate all the trades great workmanship too. Jo, Jessica and Pam also helped us a lot when we met a few issues early on. Thanks Team.
Excellent build and team
B1 is so accomodating and makes building a new home a joy. Gav site manager along with all the team work closely with the client ensuring quality workmanship and completion of build well within the time frame
Lots of interest and and positive comments on my home. Thanks Team very Happy
Stunner of a First Home
Our first build wasn’t without its challenges but has completely exceeded our expectations.
We are about to move in and can’t believe our luck on the location and quality of build all due to the B1 team we were lucky enough to work with.
The quality of trades involved in the build were of the highest standard and we have sought them out for further finishing of our home.
Adrian, Erin & the team made this a truly amazing experience.
1st build experience
B1 were great to deal with, from the design changes we wanted to the initial plans through to the erection of a rear wall they made what we wanted happen.
We encountered a few problems on the way but were always kept informed and these were dealt with expeditiously and professionally.
We were consulted throughout the process and recommendations were made and incorporated.
The build time was fine and we got key handover in the predicted timeframe.
Fortnightly updates were provided and these helped to reassure us that it was all going to plan...
Excellent builder for first home buyers!
B1 were a pleasure to deal with. Accommodating design choices to suit our block, guiding and keeping us informed from beginning to end and demonstrating quality workmanship. Highly recommended builder!

Great builder for anyone wanting to build their first home
B1 were very easy to deal with, made my first home experience really positive. Workmanship and quality of build has been good, I had very little issues upon the final inspection. Any issues I had were addressed quite fast & very professional. My final cost came in under what I had originally expected so I am over the moon.
A brilliant build.
My husband and I are extremely happy with the quality of our new home. The construction process was excellent and we were very impressed with the workmanship. Our site supervisor, Jim, was exceptionally professional, easy to work with and went above and beyond to ensure we were satisfied with the build. The minor problems that occurred were handled promptly and efficiently. As first home buyers, we were a little nervous to build a new home, however the B1 Homes professionals helped us design our dream first home for an affordable price.
Great and easy build
Loved building with B1 homes, they made the whole process super easy with no headaches. They replied to emails straight away and were very thorough and helpful throughout the build. Would 100% recommend them
Our perfect first home!
From the get go, B1 has been great to build with. Before choosing to sign on with B1, we enquired with a few other builders but found their extremely persistent calls (enough for us to end up blocking their numbers) quite off putting. B1 definitely showed interest, but gave us enough room to think about what we actually wanted to do. This less nagging approach made B1 the obvious choice for us.
We chose a double story house as that what suited our smaller block best. The sales rep we dealt with, Glen Gesmundo, was great in working with us to ...make changes to the design so we were completely happy with all the rooms in the house. If we wanted to change something, or had an idea in our head, he was very knowledgeable about what would work and gave us honest advice as to what to do. Glen went above and beyond what we thought a sales rep would do. When we were initially looking for land, we told Glen what suburbs we were interested in and our price range, he did some research and then came to us with possibilities and even was a liaison with the real estate agents. With this being our first home, his extremely helpful approach was really appreciated. When we went into the showroom for our prestart, we were very impressed with the high standard of amenities that were inclusive within the basics range. There were upgrades available, but we didn’t feel the need to do so. For us, this was a very easy and exciting process, as the options that were available to us were very modern we left really happy with all our choices. Throughout the build, we didn’t really have many issues. The only hold up that we encountered was due to the neighbour regarding the shared fence that had to be taken down in order for our garage to be built. B1 dealt with this well, as my partner and myself work away, our build Supervisor, Matt Mundy, was happy to liaise with the neighbour in order to get this resolved. Working away we both had to really trust that we were in good hands, and Matt didn’t disappoint. After meeting with Matt, we could see that his level of what would be handed over to us would be at the utmost best. Another issue we ran into was with our kitchen counter top. The option we chose was out of stock and would take a month or more for it to come into stock. B1 dealt with this well as we were advised of the hold up and how long it would take, or were given the option to select a new countertop and was provided with samples of look a likes to our original choice. B1 kept us in the loop with everything that was happening. Our client liaison was Jessica Wright, who initially gave us weekly updates, which further into the build became fortnightly. Jessica was great to deal with and working away and not knowing what’s happening, her frequent emails gave us peace of mind to know what progress was occurring. After having our PCI meeting, we were so impressed with the outstanding workmanship throughout the house. There was only a couple of small things we pointed out, but these were so minor that it didn’t affect our thoughts on the house at all. We are beyond happy with out new house and in 2 weeks we get the keys and will be able to move in.
Near faultless and very understanding
let me start by saying- wow! from the get go our sales person Stacey Smith was extremely helpful, she designed our home and worked closely with us to get everything we wanted and more. Working closely with the drafting team she came back to us with 4-5 different ideas/plans and with my wife and I being pretty picky Stacey was completely understanding,patient and more than helpful. highly appreciated and would recommend her to anybody looking at building, she went above and beyond.
At prestart everything seemed to go smoothly until the build s...tarted. My partner and I where under the impression fly screens where included to all sliding doors. we have a 4 panel stacker door to our back garden which after it was installed, we couldn't see anywhere for the fly screen to be fitted. After a few months of emails, we ended up getting a fly screen sorted but took unnecessarily long to organize. The other issue from the prestart aspect was due to our stacker doors, they wouldn't guarantee vertical blinds covering the door due to the width. Once again after a lot of back and forth emails we finally got this resolved and agreed on an alternative option. Moving onto the construction, our site supervisor Matt Munday was second to none! we chose to do our own tiling, painting and driveway throughout the build, which i can understand throws a spanner in the works, but Matt kept in touch with us throughout the build keeping us up to date on everything and even gave us ample time to complete our own works. Both my father and uncle where bricklayers for most of their lives and they both commented on how neat the brickwork was and even said they would struggle to lay bricks that neat (takes a lot for a bricklayer to swallow their pride). All of Matt's trades where excellent and by practical completion the house was almost faultless, we had to really look to even find something to complain about, the only things we found wrong was a doorstop missing and 2 drains from down the side of the house and he came to the part with everything and rectified these issues, no questions asked! Matt went above and beyond to build us what we wanted, he truly understands that it is one of the biggest investments you will make in your life and i believe he takes true pride in his work and is passionate about it which makes all the difference. Hayley and I are over the moon with the finished product and if we are to ever build again B1 homes will be our first stop.
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.
