It was my first time building a house, and I didn't have a single clue about what to prepare. Then I met Blake from B1 home, and he helped me from the very beginning to the end. He was very approachable, and was always willing to reach out to me whenever I had a question. Also, he replied and fixed things super quick when I brought up a feedback on something. The whole process went very smoothly with his assistance.

Build with Blake!
The last thing I expected when I put in an enquiry about B1 home designs online was that my partner and I would be signing a contract 2 weeks later. Blake called me the same day I enquired and instead of trying to sell something to us he spent a good 20 minutes asking what we wanted and how he could help us. We went into our first meeting just wanting to see what our position was as we hadn't put much thought into saving a big deposit or finding the right house. Blake brought in Jonni Chin from Wealthplus Lending to handle our finances and did ...an on the spot eligibility check for us, told us where we should aim for and what would be available to us. Blake was the first and last person we spoke to about building our home, we left the meeting and despite advice to explore our options and see what else was available I already felt like we were in the right hands. I was quite sceptical about building with a project home builder and hearing the stories of consultants only interested in getting you across the dotted line - this couldn't be any further from the truth with Blake. He was transparent and informative at every stage and always had our best interests at heart. Blake often designs custom plans for his clients and has a social media page for his work which was important in letting us know that he is invested in his clients. Blake guided us through getting finance, finding the right block of land and then the right house to build. Prestart was a breeze and Rachel was very helpful on pricing inclusions and helping us understand what we could include/exclude. Blake even popped in to check how we were going. We never felt like we had to chase anything up and everyone we have interacted with at B1 so far has been very proactive. Looking forward to seeing our house come together. We would highly recommend Blake @ B1 to anyone looking to building their first home.
Extremely proactive and excellent client to builder relationship
As a young early 20’s, solo, first home buyer, I was very nervous with building. After the lack of communication and responsiveness from other builders, I was very close to giving up. However, I met Blake Shuttleworth from B1 Homes and from our first meeting, I knew that my build would be seamless and well coordinated if I chose to build with B1 Homes. And so I did! Blake coordinated everything from speaking to developers about my land to ensuring my design fit all my needs.
Blake was very proactive, transparent and ensured that my best inter...ests were always a priority. As I was not familiar with anything that comes with building, he explained every step as simple as possible and listened to my concerns, needs and wants. There was no surprises and everything went smoothly. Blake is extremely knowledgeable and prompt in his replies (he would even reply to my many questions on a Friday/Saturday night!). It has been a pleasure to work with Blake and I am very thankful that my first home builder journey has been a breeze due to Blake at B1 Homes. I would highly recommend Blake to anyone looking to build. Blake’s customer care services exceeded my expectations and is an asset to B1 Homes :) Looking forward to seeing the finish product.
Excellent Builder and Team
As a first home buyer and nil knowledge of building , one off my friend referred SURESH SAMA (House and Land Specialist of B1 homes) to start our journey with B1 homes. Suresh was extremely knowledgeable & helpful in changing our home design multiple times and very prompt in communicating to all my queries. B1 homes always exceeded my expectations in delivering the given building schedule.I would highly recommend Suresh & B1 homes team for their Integrity,Quality,Flexibility and Exceptional customer service to anyone who is looking to build a home.

Awesome communication and follow ups!
As first time builders we were very relieved to have someone like Blake Shuttleworth working with us. Blake was extremely helpful and excellent with his communication. He walked us through everything and made sure we were well informed on the process of building through B1. Blake went above and beyond for us, if anything ever came up he would call us right away and he would always make time for us if we had questions and needed to call him.
My partner and I are very excited to have our first home being built and we can’t say thank you enough t...
Karla McLean is the best!
We began our home building journey with a builder where we felt like we weren't really being supported well and because of all the government grants we felt we were given least priority as we wanted a custom design house, They couldn't give us a time frame as to when we could get our building contract and the estimated date of construction, which would mean we could miss out on the building grants. So we decided to move builder and one of our friends recommended B1 homes, we were introduced to Karla Mclean, one of the ...
Stress Free and Easy
This is my first time building. I went looking for months at different display homes coming in contact with so many different building companies that would only offer me half of what I wanted on my budget making the whole process so confusing and frustrating. I then meet Blake from B1 Homes after just one conversation I was confident and comfortable that Blake knew what I wanted from my house and land package and in the exact location I wanted. I could not be any happier. From then on it has been open communication and any questions or concerns I have had they have answered without any hesitation not matter how silly on my part. Highly recommended
An Infallible Experience
As young couple we ventured through many display homes and were often not taken seriously. We decided to call around building company’s when we came across Blake at B1 Homes. Blake never questioned our ability or financial situation and was always very friendly and respectful.
Blake worked closely along side our chosen mortgage broker to ensure a smooth process and kept us updated along the way. Not only did he draw us a custom floor plan which incorporated all of our needs and wants for a house within our budget, he also helped us secure a b...lock of land. He is very honest and has always worked in our best interest, promptly answering any queries and questions no matter how silly they might sound. Overall B1 Homes has made building our first home a very enjoyable experience and we look forward to seeing the process come together.
Excellent communication the whole way through the process
Matt McCoy reached out to us after an inquiry online in relation to building our first home. Since the first contact till now, Matt has been informative, professional and easy to deal with the whole way through.
Everyone at B1homes have been awesome to deal with. Their online hub is so easy to use, making the prestart quick and easy.
Would recommend B1homes to anyone looking to build their home.
Fate brought us to Blake and we haven't looked back!
This was just one of those moments in life where all the dominoes fell into place. We weren't supposed to meet up with Blake on the day we met, but we somehow found ourselves in a B1 Homes display talking to Blake. We clicked instantly and knew we didn't have to look at other builders any further. Blake helped us through the whole pre-contract bit, always there to help with any questions we had. B1 Homes allowed us to custom plan our whole house. Adam got the finance done for us and Katy was really helpfull at pre-start, bringing up really usef...ull finer details that we never even considered. For a first home we appreciated the option of having all the different aspects like financing and settlement agents all taken care of. Our slab is down already and we're looking forward getting on with the build.

Back on Track
Building a home was a daunting prospect for me as a single parent. After significant changes in my life, I felt like I was back to ‘square one’ and starting all over again. I found myself renting after having been a home owner for 16 years. I had spoken to a few different builders, but instantly felt comfortable and hopeful after meeting Blake from B1 Homes. Blake and the team are ‘down to Earth’, always helpful and reliable. Blake has gone above and beyond to make this process as painless as possible. Thank you B1 for helping me get back on track, and once again be investing in a more secure future for my children, rather than someone elses. So much appreciated, Donna.
Only perfection***B1 homes(Adam A &Greg M)
Excellent service from B1 homes. Greg and Adam provided totally outstanding service and we can't thank them enough for their patience and help. From our meet up until receiving our finance, these two guys worked so hard to ensure we achieved our dream home. They welcomed us with open arms, not once did they ever think we were an inconvenience. They went far and beyond. "People are right when they say choose your builder." My hubby and I have chosen thee best. Their land packages are of quality. Good architecture. Our prestart was made so exc...iting. Thanks Angela we appreciated your experience and excellent service. There are companies that really play the fool with person's life, but B1 homes is the real deal. B1 homes and their team work from their hearts and they really doing the Australian people a good service. Highly recommended to anyone of any culture. Keep up the excellent service guys especially Adam A and Greg M.
Building made easy
I went in to building process not knowing a whole lot. Blake helped me along the way with the process by providing me with guidance and honest opinions when came to the picking and choosing of items. Highly recommend having a chat with Blake if you feel the building process can be overwhelming/daunting.
Happy with the Service from Blake at B1 Homes and the Team
We are happy to be working with Blake who has been available to talk about our project any time any day. Our slab has been poured very quick and we are so happy to see the first steps of our build take place. We are exited to see the next step and believe we are well looked after with Blake Shuttleworth. Will update again when the house is all done. Very happy customers considering we have not met Blake yet only chatted on the phone and through email.
Pre-construction phase of building my first home
I’m currently in the pre-construction phase of building my first home with B1 Homes. My experience to date has been seamless from the initial meeting with the Senior House and Land Specialist Matt McCoy to the Prestart meeting with Rachel McKessar.
Matt has provided a great client experience to date through his transparent and honest nature and knowledge and experience in the industry. From the initial meeting, Matt took the time to understand what I wanted to get out of my first home and the budget I had to achieve it. Matt went above and beyo...
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.
