Really great experience with B1 - clearly outlined process and expected costs to me!
Very happy with the customer service experience from B1 Homes, right from the beginning with Khoj and then also with the pre-start team. They helped me to understand the building process really well, and helped give me clear expectations of costs and timeframes. Overall I am very happy with my experience with B1 and would recommend them to friends and family!
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!
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.
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
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.
Build With Matt McCoy!!
I’ve wanted to build a house for years but always thought that it was a far fetched dream. I started off by putting my details in a B1 add on instagram and 12hrs later Matt contacted me, we had a brief discussion about my financials and what I wanted and he said we can make it happen, two days later we had a meeting, to discuss plans and run through some designs, he organised Adam from lets finance to meet too, to discuss finance and my budget.
We went through everything involved in the building process, it seemed too easy for me to be in my f...

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...
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.
