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.
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.
We are very exciting for our slab has been laid down, very great experience ever. Thanks Scott Blatcher for your wonderful job, you have stand with us during the process until everything goes well. B1 homes are amazing homes builders. Thank you all team B1 homes for your fantastic job.

Superb build with b1 homes and ish shokar
With the build I was kept up to date.
I have nothing but praise for b1 homes they couldn't do enough for me and kept in contact through each stage of the building.
Also mention ish shokar for all the help and support through the build and also the first meeting explained the process which was excellent. He even helped out of hours was always a good support and wealth of information with any questions and uncertainty's I may of had.
Brilliant Customer Service
I am still in the process of building but just have to say that my rep Scott has been fantastic. I kept changing my mind with the design and have also been hard to get hold of due to working remotely on site. Nothing was too hard for Scott and he has the patience of a saint. I started worrying about how small my block was (purchased independently) and what I could actually do with it. He went above and beyond with preparing different plans for me.i think he changed the en-suite for me 10 times before I was happy. He has also taken the time to get me extra photos so I can see the progress of the build given that I’m not home much. Will recommend him to anyone who wants to build with b1. Thank you Scott!!
Service at B1
Am currently building a home with B1 homes. The service with them has been nothing but exceptional, Sam, my Rep has been there every step of the way advising and helping with the design. I am always sent emails on progress of the home and have met with the site supervisor who was only to happy to answer my questions and explain the progress to me. Have no hesitation in recommending B1 homes and lovely Sam.
After a disastrous 1st try with another company I was introduced to Catherine Smith from B1. From the moment I met her through to how amiable she was to my redesigning of the house and getting it inside my budget, the whole process was dreamlike easy! I am recommending Catherine to everyone! My children and I are loving meeting the site supervisor Matt, the brickmaster John and all the team. I cannot thank John enough for his care and dedication to his craft. I can literally see the care he has taken with my Brickwork. For a first time experience, this has been wonderful. Thank you, B1.
Slab down, smooth sailing so far
I've had a really good experience with B1 Homes so far, I'm at the stage where slab is down and it has cured enough to commence the rest of construction. My sales consultant Catherine Smith has been a big influence in keeping us calm here (1st home buyers), and has communicated with us frequently and much more often than required to. Overall I've been really impressed with their team and would certainly use them again if given the choice.
Fingers crossed the rest of the build goes as smoothly!
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 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.
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.
