Stress free build from start to finish !
Found the whole process very easy, from the sales agent Steve who bent over backwards to move the process along promptly and dealt with all the Council planning applications. Not forgetting staff in the offices who kept me well informed all the time and Jessica who answered all of my emails usually within the hour of me writing them. Karen handling progress claims, again very efficient.The advice of the Lady at the pre start was welcomed as I had no idea about colors, tiles ect..... Just walked through yesterday for the completion inspectio...n with Matt the site Supervisor. Experienced fella who I could tell ran a tight team of tradesman, nice guy too ! Finish was excellent, found no problems at all, even better than I expected. Was a little daunted at first at the thought of building a new home as never done it before and friends had told me horror stories of their building experiences but can honestly say I found the build easy and stress free. Would certainly recommend B1homes to others. Sorry if I have forgotten to mention anyone but you have all been good ! By the way I have no affiliation to B1 homes or anyone who works there, just very happy with them.
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!
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.
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 email@example.com, 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.
