When we began discussing building our first home, we met with people from many different companies and never felt comfortable until we met Dave from B1! He understood our nerves and never pushed us to sign any documents until we were ready. Dave's easy going nature made the entire process as easy and positive as possible. We are very grateful and can't wait to see our new home in the coming months!
Dave is a really nice guy, very patient listens to what you want and shares ideas, easy to talk too. Keeps me up to date honest, keeps me in check and on budget. Couldn’t ask for a better person to be dealing with for building my first home.would recommend him to anyone.
Experience is comfortable and enjoyable, putting the clients first.
The thought of building your first home can be daunting as you take the path to owning your first home. But these guys really do put the client first, take the fear away and make it feel as comfortable and understanding as possible. Would recommend to anyone looking to build/buy.
Absolute joy to work with.
We are in Pre construction.
So far has veen very easy to communicate and an enjoyable experience. I will update after the next stage if needed. But so far B1 homes have been amazing to deal with and easily helped with any enquiries we have had during this amazing process.

From the very first enquiry posted online B1 homes have been extremely supportive and encouraging. Nothing was to hard for Dave to work through and over come to ensure everthing was stress free and ran smoothly for me. My thanks to Dave M and the B1 team for all your assistance from the beginning. I would recommend Dave and the B1 homes team to anyone who wished to build their home.
Amazing Customer Service and Build Quality
As a first homebuyer I was overwhelmed by the entire process. Luckily B1 Homes made everything feel less daunting. Every step was laid out and explained and before any pen hit the paper they made sure I had my house exactly the way I wanted. There were no hidden costs and i ended up coming in under my original budget!
A special thanks to the below personnel in particular.
Michael was absolutely brilliant when it came to designing a home for me. Especially due to the fact i kept changing my mind and making constantly adjustments. He took the ti...
Loving my Home!
I contacted B1 Homes as had previously built with 101 Residential with no issues, they both fall under the same umbrella. Damien happened to answer my call and then we got into the process of finding a block and plans started to be drawn up. To save me driving all the way to the office Damien took the time to come to my house to go over the drawings, make suggestions and include my changes.
Little bit of confusion when calling the office but Pam stepped in and then Michelle C took over who did my pre-start. Only downside was I left a bit miff...
highly recommend B1, great service
Building our 1st home with B1 was the best decision.
What could have been a stressful time, especially as we were living 1600kms away from the build, was painless and easy. Cannot thank B1 enough for making this process so easy and for being reliable and honest and on hand to answer all queries and questions.
From Josh designing a home prefect for us and making any adjustments we decided on, to Pam taking us through prestart and sharing her expertise with us, to Erin who kept us constantly updated with progress reports and became our go to wit...
This was our first time building a house with a company. The design process was made very easy by Josh with help from John and his expertise in 2 storey home builds. Pre-start was an excellent process and Erin was able to visualise the house and assist with further ideas of plan alterations and things that we just hadn't thought of. The house was completed on time and to a very high standard. I have recommended B1 as a builder to any one who asks.
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!
After meeting with consultants from some other companies I came across Catherine Smith from B1 homes... could not be happier so far with the service she has provided the keeping contact touching base all the understanding Catherine has provided without the must sign pressure everyone else tried to put on. B1 has made it my time not just a rush for a signature. Pre approval now done looking forward to the next phase.
Catherine's personal touch and understanding has really made a difference and she really is an asset to B1.
DODGY builders ! Never again ! Management is a joke ! Liars the lot of them
Wrote an email to management regarding a refund and they will not help you at all. Rude and obnoxious... worst builder ever .They definitely take advantage of first hike builders .DO NOT PAY THEM $3000 until you are happy with the plans .
We've received no copy of signed contract since day 1 of our face to face appointment !
When I asked you about getting a refund earlier on in the process , you replied that we weren't able to . I have queried this with B1 customer service - (over the phone) . They advised we were able to recieve a refund w...
Absolutely Horrendous People to deal with would never ever use again
They are so not interested in helping you at all once you have signed up had owner supplied items stolen once installed by one of their contractors and they couldnt even be bother to let me know and then wouldnt cover the cost of replacing items as " its not in the contract" Management are rude and obnoxious salesmen are slime balls site supervisor is half decent with a slight care factor more so then the office staff and management. They make a lot of promises and deliver none!!! Most stressful experience of my life dealing with these people. I am dreading having to deal with them after construction if I have any issues which seeing other reviews of them I lmost likely will!!!
Wish I could rate B1 more highly
We were looking to build our second home. After doing some researches on the builders, we took a decision and signed up with B1 Homes. Building process can be really hectic for the owners but B1 had made it smoother. From start to finish, it has been an excellent journey. Sales rep Pav drafted a custom plan to fit on a land and organised everything within a budget. Prestart consultant Michelle and contract admin Pam went above and beyond. Erin from customer service updated with our building process all the way and well communicated. Gav the sit...e supervisor has been fantastic and meetings with him were very informative. There were few slight issues which were resolved within timely manner. B1 homes by Scott Park is not just first home specialist, B1 can turn your dream of second home into reality.
4x2 The Value build
Overall B1 homes were very efficient in completing my home. I am pleased with the customer service provided throughout the build. You get what you pay for per se. Rodney Stone is an asset, he was always reachable for start to finish and thank you Adam Austin for persevering with my financing.

Excellent Builder,value for money,Extremely happy.
Our experience with B1 has been excellent,our sales consultant,Blakes did his best to accommodate our family house needs by helping us design a plan that suited our block of land,he also went further and found us a suitable block of land.This is our first home to build and we had little details on how to go about home building and the processes involved. We are glad to have met Blakes and build with B1,Our build was smooth and inspection reports are good.Keep the good work B1 homes,definitely good people who look after their customers,fast ,e...fficient and straightforward.Thanks Blakes for being patient with us and going extra mile to explain things in detail,your patience and kindness is in deed above board.Thanks adam for preserving our finance application, that was legendary!! Our prestart consultant Michelle, was excellent,she gave us lots of info and necessary additions to make our house better,guided us with lots of patience and professionalism,very accommodating and well experienced,we are glad to have her as our prestart consultant.Many thanks Michelle.Our client liaison officer Jo, Is excellent,communication is thorough and timely, Matt our supervisor was an excellent bloke,he oversaw our build to the best standard.we love our house ,so far no issues but still on maintaince stage,i would recommend B1 to everyone thinking about building,their services are professional and non pushy.
Completely and utterly happy with B1 Homes. This was our first time building a house, so it was all new to us. The 3 staff that went over and above and made this whole process so much easier and deserve a special mentioning are:
Josh, our sales consultant, he listened to all our wants and needs, none of these were too hard or undoable. He then came back with a few designs to choose from. He was very patient and no question was too hard to answer, even if he didnt know the answer he would find out for us. He even came to help select tiles and c...arpet. Throughout the whole build and after key handover he would constantly follow up to make sure we were happy with everything. Jo, our client liaison officer was amazing, she would send us fortnightly updates however if we had any queries in between she would always reply to emails and phone calls and answer these queries as soon as she can. Any time she was going on leave or not in the office she would let us know in advance and who we could contact should we have a query. Her excellent communication with us helped make the process a whole lot easier. We had a couple minor issues that she helped resolve and always had our best interest at heart. Adrian, our site manager was very professional and attentive. He went over and above to make sure our home was completed as soon as possible, it was done in 21 weeks from slab being poured! Just shows that Adrian knows how to organise and run a team of excellent tradies. He reassured us, when we doubted a couple things we had chosen. We even had our neighbours comment on how clean the site was and how the tradies were respectful and friendly towards them. Even after key handover Adrian met with us, he noticed a couple things that he was not happy with, very minor things that we didnt even notice and fixed them on the spot. A good manager is not afraid to get hands on! If we were able to give B1 more stars we would!
My experience with B1 has been nothing but perfect.
From the start where they helped me get out of a crap situation with another building company, to the end when they handed over the keys.
Everything turned out as i expected with the build and was completed at a very high standard. I had no complaints during the process and my pre-start was smooth and everything was explained correctly.
big thanks to:
Adam Austin from lets finance who helped me out with all the issues from the previous company and sorted my finance. Real top bloke.
Bria...n my site supervisor, he was awesome. Every time i met with him he was able to answer any question and sort any issues. when it came to the final inspection and a few things needed to be fixed he was onto it and getting it sorted straight away.
Our perfect build is now our home!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank B1 Homes for building us our dream home. The journey of first time building was exciting starting with Damien our designer sales consultant who designed us a great functional plan with our requirements in mind. We had some hiccups at Prestart stage with my consultant but Pam the Contract & Prestart Manager sorted it out well. We would highly recommend Pam for Prestart. She is friendly and nice. Fast forward to construction initial stage there was some tension as some parts at Prestart from my initi...al consultant was not explained causing some back and forth disagreement between us and our initial Client Liaison Officer, mainly on the positioning of my meterbox. My initial site supervisor Matt that we met on our first Brick work meeting was a good guy who reassured us at the end we will get a good build. It all became more exciting as we see our house go up stage by stage and we are so happy when Adrian took over and became our site supervisor. Matt was good but due to excessive workload Adrian stepped in. We are fine with the changes as long as communication was not affected. All went smoothly after that. Adrian was willing to meet us to go through the transition from Matt to him so nothing was missed. We cannot fault Adrian at all. He has been fantastic! He was always there to answer our questions, get things done and organised and fixed them straight away. He runs a tight group of tradies. We have met them all on site throughout the build and they all said they are happy to do Adrians work. I always believe good supervisor = happy tradies = good home build. My Client Liaison Officer Jo has been brilliant as well. Always on top of my enquiries and attended to my emails promptly and diligently after checking with Adrian and various trades. She is very helpful and her kind nature makes me happy she took over as my Client Liaison Officer when my initial one went on maternity leave. I absolutely love it how with Adrian any errors or faults get actioned for fixing immediately. All are minor stuff nothing major. Coming to end of build with the finishing trades, Adrian has organised and scheduled everything super well. I did not have to worry at all. This is considered amazing because I am a fussy and pedantic person who worries a lot! His work ethics ensuring everything is done tip top is impeccable. Today we had our PCI and tomorrow is our Handover of keys already! All because of Adrians urgency to get things done well and corrected immediately. He even went down on his hands and knees himself today to do silicone for our floor tile edges for us just to make it look nicer! For us, although we are first home builders we are fair people and do know nothing is perfect and there are sure to be some build issues. But it is the way the issues are handled well, promptly and professionally that is what we are most pleased with. Some may wonder how can PCI not pick up a multitude of problems. Well, we had an independent building inspector in today with over 30 years of experience in the building & construction industry. Tiny issues picked up that could be fixed on the spot and that was about it! This goes to show our build was done well and I am glad to have build with B1 Homes. Thank you Adrian and Jo and all the others who have handled our build. We really appreciate your deliverance of our perfect home. Special thanks to Adrian again for your kindness, after sales service and going beyond your call of duty to deliver our home to us ahead of time! This review only allows us to give 5 stars. If we could add an additional star we would! Today when we saw our completed home so perfect I was near tears and so thankful for a job so well done. Yeah in before Christmas!
The team was fantastic and super helpful, always punctual and very knowledgeable couldnt recommend them more!
The whole build was super high quality and work was completed quickly and with high quality, there werent any hidden fees and everything was explained, the building manager helped explain everything and got everything fixed up early for me, and Jo was extremely helpful and made my building experience great
Highly recommend B1- excellent from start to finish!
Our experience with B1 was excellent from start to finish & we cant recommend them highly enough! Building your first home is always going to be nerve-wracking & there is a lot that you do not know about the whole process. However we could not have chosen a better builder to go with- they made the process as smooth as possible, they were open, honest, trustworthy, reliable & most importantly respected our budget- not once did they try & fleece us for anymore money. They acted with integrity throughout They stuck to the 20 week build guarantee ...& the house was completed to a very high standard. In the early stages Damien Clancy was amazing in interpreting our many ideas & translating our vision into reality. He got to know us as individuals so that the house would be crafted specifically for us & our needs. Our builder, Jimmy, demonstrated incredibly high attention to detail & we could trust in him to be across every detail of the build. And above all was Erin Chittleborough, our Client Liaison Officer. She well & truly exceeded our expectations- I have never dealt with someone so professional, friendly & that offered such a HIGH standard of customer service. She always responded really quickly, answered every single one of our questions without making us feel stupid & made everything more easy for us. We loved Erin & felt really lucky to have her to support us through the process.
Cannot fault B1 homes with the management of our home and we are always kept informed of the progress of our build. The workmanship and quality of our home is excellent. Everything has been handled very professional and everyone dealing with us has been very obliging even with the smallest of queries. Would build a B1 home again. Thank you B1 homes for making it enjoyable and exciting. Thank you Dave M, Michelle C, Gav and Erin and thanks to let's finance Adam.
Love our house and the quality of the build is excellent. Cost was bang on the quoted price and was a dream to build.
1st Class Builder with a 1st Class Team - Highly Recommended
We built a 1-storey home on a sloping plot. The B1 team (Frank, Adrian, Pam, Erin) exceeded our expectations. They handled our complicated project extremely well. Through out the build, B1 never compromised on quality. We never had to worry about being short changed at any point. I would highly recommend B1 for a first class building experience and a high quality build.
How well was the build managed
The whole process from the pre-start, contract management to build management was handled very professionally. They are able to deliver on their ...
Exceptional from the start!!
Our experience so far with B1 has been fantastic. Our building consultant Richard is absolutely amazing. He has designed our ideal home to perfection and kept us well within our budget. We have had great financial advise from Adam and we are really looking forward to getting the build started.
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.
