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
Took a long time to write our review. Like our house build
I love my house. I hated building. The process was a nightmare from start to finish and as a first home builder not what I wanted.
Firstly there was the battle for our business between b1 and red ink. Constantly calling and email to reduce the price of the house and add inclusions and bring each other down. - (which is confusing cause they are part of the same company)
[name removed] designed my home and she is amazing. Hands down the best person on the b1 team, untill we signed on and the process started and she moved on to the next clients. ...
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.
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!
