We have not built a home in over 25 years so we were quite apprehensive about the process until we met Blake. He has been extremely helpful in guiding us through the process to date noting that the slab has only just gone down keeping us informed all the way thus far. He is very likeable and does not push us into doing anything we are unsure about even redesigning a home that would meet the size of our block from one we were very keen to build but would not fit. He offered to meet us at a display home and went through in great detail what would...be included in our new home being very open and honest about everything. He was very flexible when it came to having planning meetings and was always contactable even on weekends answering all our questions. I would highly recommend Blake.
excellent service, so helpful!
I am so happy with the service that I got from B1 Homes! Pre-construction and the prestart consultation was great, and I am very satisfied with service! The consultant was extremely helpful, on time and went out of their way to help me. I am currently in the construction stage and will recommend B1 homes to everyone!
Preconstruction stage highly successful
At the preconstruction stage now with the slab going down in a few months, Nick has been absolutely incredible! Hes made this whole process so easy and as a first home owner, managed to make it pretty much stress free. Hes very easy to get in touch with any time and is super helpful with any questions I've had. I'm very confident now, largely thanks to him, that I'll be living in my dream first home. Highly recommend going through him with future builds
Don't build with B1!
The worst experience of my life. Not even got a slab down yet and the costs keep rising after contract was signed, then site variation, then price increase, then apparently another site variation and extra costs on provisional sums. Finance was only approved on initial contract signing...there is no more money! Do not build with B1, you are just a number whilst making the biggest investment of your life.
Build in progress, so far so good!
Currently my build is ongoing with my slab now down, everyone from the sales agent to the prestart consultant even to the admin staff tying everything together over email (only know their names but not their faces) have great to deal with so far. They have been honest and upfront with me from the start.
The sales agent was very very helpful and able to aid me in making the smartest decision with my limited budget and my fussy desires. He was honest about the positives and negatives of each of the choices in front of me but was willing to make ...work what he could. The prestart consultant was amazing and brought it altogether! We'll see how the rest of the build goes, can't fault anything so far. Another thing they've been upfront about is the potential delays due to demand at the moment, I'm glad they didn't make any promises that they wouldn't be able to keep.
Very personal service
Coming out of a messy divorce, Nick at B1 homes was a godsend to me when trying to decide how to go about building my new home. He was a pleasure to deal with, was knowledgeable and helped with every detail. He helped me secure the block of my dreams and find a design that fit perfectly. Preset was quickly organised and although the build is taking a while due to the covid delays, I feel confident I will soon be living in my dream home.

Great service and transparent pricing
It has been a great experience with B1 homes. The sales representative was knowledgeable and provided detailed explanation differences in land composition in different suburbs, which drives majority of uncertainties in earthwork cost. I took their advice and find a piece of land which was easy to build. Without them, I wouldn’t have a clue.
Happy First Home Owner
B1 homes was referred to me by a friend and i regret not calling them first before losing 1.5K to a previous builder. Daniel from B1 homes has been friendly, proactive and professional from land acquisition to preconstruction to construction. Katy was amazing in the prestart meeting, helping me with internal and external selections and making it a fun and learning experience. overall I'm very happy with the work ethic of the team especially during this covid time. I'm extremely thankful and looking forward to my home being finished.
Thanks so much Nick!
As a first home buyer, I was so lucky to meet Nick from B1-homes. I found him very clear, on time, helpful and knowledgeable in securing both finance and building packages. He has been providing me with fantastic support from the very first moment. Nick helped me putting my offer to a nice piece of land, explaining clearly all the steps involved in building a house from very scratch, and finalising the plan. I would highly recommend working with Nick.
B1 build with Melanie
We are so happy with our decision to build through Melanie at B1.
When we started looking at our options Mel was one of the first to respond to us. From day one she was reliable and helpful in every way. She made a daunting process so easy and stress free.
She found a block that suited our needs and designed the perfect custom home ton our block even though it was a tricky block to work with. Mel worked hard to include all our requests into the build to make it our dream home.
We couldn’t be happier with the support we received throughout the whole process from Mel and we are so excited to get into our home.

build with scott Blatcher B1 homes
I Tina Harding have been with Scott right from the start.. I can not put into words how much Scott has looked after me from day one.. Scott and B1 homes are absolutely the best.. They really care about whatever situation you are in.. they made sure you are comfortable with everything that goes on in the building industry and what to expect further on with the build.. I could not have gone through with the build without Scott being by my side.. I appreciate what Scott and B1 homes has done for me.. please do not hesitate to contact these guys.. they are worth every penny.
Want to build a house, B1 homes ( Sam Gusic) is the place to go.
I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to SAM GUSIC for helping me to build my first home. Sam was very honest since day one and things were getting done in no time. Throughout the journey, we created a good relationship.
I highly recommend him for his honesty, professionalism and efficiency. Building your first home is something scary in terms of trusting someone but i find myself lucky to have known Sam who guided me all along the way. Thanks once again man

Build with Blake!
It’s a very daunting task building your first home.
There are so many choices to be taken into consideration such as who to build with , where am I going to put this house, what design choices am I going to make and so on.
Blake made the process so very easy for my partner and I.
He managed to help hunt down a beautiful block, help design an elegant home and get all the paperwork finalised all the while my partner and I where on opposite sides of WA!
His communication was next level and the fact he was willing to answer any and all question even on his days off showed his devotion to our project.
We couldn’t be happier with the service provided by Blake and the team at B1!

Build with Dan
I wasn’t sure to expect from my first meeting, I wasn’t even thinking of buying a house until I met Dan! He made everything so easy and helped me secure some land which I looked at and bought on the same day! We did hit a few snags with the finance part, but guided by Dan’s extensive experience, as well as using the in-house broker Let’s Finance, I was able to keep everything on track. Dan helped me find the best land for me, and then when it came to the design he took the time to show me various options, showed me through displays until I arri...ved at the perfect solution. Not being from Australia, I was very cautious and had many questions along the way, which he answered for me even late at night or on the weekend. Nothing was too much trouble and I’ll never look back from renting. I couldn’t be happier, and so glad I meant Dan and I managed to qualify for the government grants! You can really be confident when dealing with Dan and the entire team at B1 Homes, he won’t let you down!
Build with Dan
Great service, we did a lot of research for building companies to find B1 home. Daniel was our sales and design guy, he was amazing with great patients and a lot of determination to help us get what we wanted. We had Jay on the financial side of things he was also amazingly helpful and very flexible with meeting times. These two guys went above and beyond to help us get our first home underway. So far we are mid construction and I can not fault this company in anyway! If your looking for a great company to build your first home definitely give Daniel at B1 homes a call.
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
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.
