Premium design and quality home built by a friendly, professional and insightful builder, B1.
Building with B1 has been a wonderful and engaging experience that transformed a premium design into a high quality and spacious home that has modern features.
Sam was really amicable and open from the very beginning as he provided insightful initial consultation and planning. Since then, Jo has been the dedicated client liaison. She has made the experience enlightening and pleasant. At every step everyone involved in B1 was very friendly and professional.
Choosing a builder that provides adequate consultation and guidance is one of the most i...
Quick build and team made it a simple process
Very happy with the build. Initial discussions with Sam were easy and he understood our needs. Pre-start was made simple and the build commenced on time. We were building during Covid which put massive pressures on the building industry, but we experienced no delays or product outages. The team were always very responsive and the building supervisor Luke did a great job ensuring work was performed properly. Would be more than happy to build with B1 again.
Fantastic from Day 1!
B1 Homes was the first company that we reached out to in the build process, and landed Melanie McLean as our Sales & Design Consultant. From day 1, we felt so at ease with Mel - she guided us through the whole process and was amazing at every step. She helped us to get our dream home design within our budget and showed us what was important to add on and what wasn't. Mel was in contact with us throughout the whole build process from beginning to end and always checked in to make sure we were happy with how everything was running. Mel - we are s...o grateful that we got you as our consultant, you're amazing!! Our client management once the build started was great too, Angela Proctor was our main client liaison and she was SO quick to respond, and any little or stupid question that we thought we had, she answered straight away. The construction team that we had for the build were always clean and efficient, if they said they were going to have something done that week, then it was done (weather pending!). The only time we had a hold up was between slab -> bricks, but with the current build climate, we didn't mind at all. Once the walls started going up, the process went by in a flash! Troy was our site supervisor and he was fantastic, any small issue we had during the handover process was rectified and he had a great eye for detail, very skilled in his work! We are so happy with our build, we got the design we absolutely love (every person who has come through has commented!), we had a great team the whole way, and the build was done to a great standard. I cannot recommend B1 Homes enough!
Great experience building with B1 homes
Building with B1 homes was a rewarding, easy, and the best decision we made! We signed to build mid-pandemic and had no issues or delays whatsoever - house was built within the timeframe given and updates always received along the way. Every staff member at B1 was always transparent and happy to help me. My sales rep Ryan was so understanding, patient, while super quick to answer any questions that I had. He also liaised with my broker to make this the most straightforward and fun process! My client liaison Amy and site supervisor Jimmy were also amazing to deal with. B1 homes are genuinely interested in the best outcome for the client. Would recommend 100%!!
Great Building experience
As a first home owner and builder i was nervous to be building on my own however, i received the best service and support from B1 Homes. My 4x2 home was built in under 12 months! Adam from Finance was excellent with communication and guidance, he would call whenever i had a question. Lindsay the Site Supervisor was very thorough and made sure everything was completed properly. With all the issues going on with Builders/contracts during the COVID pandemic i consider myself lucky. I had no issues or delays with anything!!
Ryan is the reason I built a home!
I met with the Salesman Ryan from B1 Homes last year. He was always available, understanding and answered any and every question I had no matter what. In my initial meeting Ryan made me feel very at ease and promised to be there every step of the way, hes the reason I decided to build. Ryan worked with myself and the broker on a Sunday afternoon to secure my lot for me, ultimately helping me dodge the delays currently affecting the construction industry.
My site manager Jimmy has continued to be supportive even after key handover and has visited my home multiple times to investigate queries I have had.
The process process easy and Ryan and B1 were completely transparent. B1 homes is the way to go!

Great experience - recommend!
I had a great experience building with B1 Homes and am really happy with the quality of my new house.
My sales rep Blake was super helpful from the get go, had great communication along the entire building journey and was able to create a really functional design (while also being able to accommodate my wishlist) on a very tricky (triangle) block. I actually wouldn’t have bought the block if Blake wasn’t able to show me what could be done with the space!
My client liaison Amy, and the two supervisors who looked after the construction of my ...home were also wonderful to deal with. Any issues along the way were dealt with really quickly and I’m impressed with the quality of my build and the service I received. I would recommend B1 Homes to anyone looking to build - I received great service throughout the entire process, avoided many of the long COVID construction delays and now have a quality home! Thanks B1 :)
B1 Have set the bar very high!!
B1 Homes we’re fantastic to deal with right from the get go!! Very smooth process with every staff member we dealt with. Ryan our Salesman was always available and anwswered every question. Matt our supervisor went over and above! Our inspector couldn’t pick up anything! So so happy with our new house!
In love with my new home
I met Karla back in August and immediately knew that I had made the right decision. She was professional yet extremely inviting and made sure I was informed and comfortable at each stage of my journey no matter how many back and fourth messages that required. Nothing I asked was too big of a task and made sure that I was getting exactly what I wanted without exceeding my budget. Karla teamed me up with Adam their in-house finance company who handled all the hard work in getting my mortgage approved. Adam went above and beyond for me, fitting in...to my crazy working hours and making sure what could have been a very stressful experience ran as smoothly as possible. Just a week away from moving into my new place and I have had nothing but a positive and smooth sailing experience at all stages of my build which is a credit to the both of them and I could not recommend either of them more.
Fantastic Builder, highly recommend Ish!!
B1 Homes have been excellent and second to none. They have just completed our build and the experience was seamless from the moment the we met our sales professional, ISH SHOKAR.
The sales professional went above and beyond his role and kept in touch with us regularly. We had so much fun at prestart and our construction liaison kept us informed at all times. Our site supervisor was well experienced in his role and answered all our questions. Our home was finished in the time as promised.
We have no hesitation and highly recommend Ish Shokar, sale professional for anyone looking for a professional advise that deliver what they promise.

Build with Melanie
I wasn't 100% sure I was wanting to build a house considering the pandemic had just started and I wasn't too sure how this would impact the building process and I didn't even know where to start but Melanie made this process so easy and fun for my partner and I as I thought this would be a very daunting process. She managed to help hunt down a fantastic block and helped pick out a few house design options that had incorporated the things I was looking for in a house and whilst sticking to our budget. She was prompt in replying to my emails and...calls even late at night and on the weekends. I'd highly recommend Melanie Mclean and B1homes, the process from beginning to end has been fantastic and me and my partner couldn't be happier with our dream home.
So pleased with B1 Homes!!!
I am so pleased with the quality of the construction and the level of customer service provided by B1 Homes throughout my build!
I was so nervous about building a house during the pandemic, hearing some horror stories about other peoples' experiences with other builders and the long wait times. However, B1 Homes has been nothing but FANTASTIC. All of the stages were conducted in such an efficient manner with so much attention to details, which I am so grateful for.
Thank you B1 Homes for being so amazing and making the whole process so easy an...d seamless. My Client Liason Officer was simply incredible. All my questions and queries were always attended to and I always had a response to anything I needed clarification on. For that, I am so happy! Thank you to my incredible Site Supervisor, Client Liason Officer and Building Consultant for building me such a beautiful home. I am honestly so pleased with the home. I have recommended B1 Homes to everyone I have met and if you are in the market to build a home, choose B1 Homes!
The homebuilder everyone needs to know
Another excellent review for B1 homes . From our very first contact they were helpful. When the building started the next team was just as good as the first. Jo Harris, thanks for everything. Your explanation about each process helped us so much.Every step during the construction B1 homes team explained . We appreciated everything you did for us. Thanks again to Adam Austin our finance guy , you helped us achieve our dream.We got to meet all the team who built our house that's from John the bricklayer (John was a single bricklayer who took pri...de in his work and it showed. Thanks John) . Matt our supervisor treated our house as if he was building one for himself. You could see that he made sure everything was to perfection. Thanks Matt. Keep up the excellent work. Nothing was impossible for B1 team .There were times i thought they would get tired of our ongoing questions, however Jo kept us so reassured and explained each process. Our friends informed us the building process was going to be a nightmare. They were so wrong..They just needed the right builder.Greg M , I wish you could see the home u designed for us. It came out exactly as your explanation . Thank you for your hardwork and for speaking so highly of your company. You said they would deliver and they truly did. Thanks for introducing us to Adam Austin "you were right" He is the best finance guy.

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.
Questions & Answers
I am interested to know what additional inclusions B1 can offer us except what they advertise to go out of their way. What did they include for you as a customer?? Thanks in advance
Hi Dallas, we gave our consultant a big list of items we wanted & also emailed photos of what we were after & they guaranteed us they could do it no worries, when we went to make selections there wasn't much to choose from & if you wanted something else you have to do your own research & owner supply items. We took months to complete prestart & try to get quotes/pricing on upgrades, it was not an easy experience & had/have to constantly chase them. I wish we chose a higher spec builder.
They promised us the kitchen promo which we had GM approval for.
Promo came with fridge, dishwasher, 2 ovens, coffee machine and more.
We originally agreed on a turn key package, as soon as they received money from us they removed all those inclusions, removed the aircon, painting, cross over and much more.
I’d steer clear and look elsewhere there’s many better quality builders out there that won’t rip you off
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.
