We love our new home!
We have lived in our brand new SJD home for three months and we couldn’t be happier.
Following our decision to do a knockdown rebuild, our research led us to SJD Homes where we were fortunate to start our journey with Nathan, a senior SJD consultant. Nathan was terrific and throughout the planning stage for our new house, he had patience, knowledge and expertise to enable us to customise our new house exactly to our requirements. Nathan was with us from the pre-planning stage until we were ready to build.
Our site supervisor, James, was meti... Read moreculous in his attention to detail as the house was being built. This also reflected in the tidy condition that he left the site during the house build. There were a few minor issues, particularly at the framing stage which I believe were more a reflection of general labour shortages in this area. But James ensured any problems were rectified and got us back on track. The workmanship for all other trades was generally of a high standard. We were kept informed about every stage of the building process, including a few minor variations along the way which had minimal impact on the final cost of the build. Thanks to James, the house was completed slightly ahead of schedule seven months later. Given the current uncertainty in the building industry, we consider ourselves very lucky to have chosen SJD to build our home and would happily recommend the company to anyone.
Love our new SJD home
Could not be happier with our beautiful new SJD home. The experience has been highly positive and a seamless process from day one. Cannot thank our SS Matthew Miller enough, he maintained a high level of communication throughout the build and was extremely efficient with rectifying any little challenges along the way. His attention to detail is brilliant, and holds all trades to a high standard resulting in our home being everything that we hoped for. Thank you Matt and the SJD team, we look forward to building with you again in the future. Jye and LucyShow details
My First Home Build
I recently had the pleasure of building with SJD Homes, and I can't express enough how delighted I am with the entire home-building process. From start to finish, SJD Homes demonstrated unparalleled professionalism, expertise, and a genuine commitment to service.
During the initial phase, they took the time to sit down with me, and recommend and help with design changes that I wanted to make to one of their plans, with some invaluable recommendations from the customer service team. All while this was happening, I would continually pop into the... Read moreir display homes, where I was always welcomed back, and all my questions answered or followed up. Throughout the construction phase, SJD Homes maintained clear communication, keeping me informed about the progress and promptly addressing any concerns. The craftsmanship and quality of materials used in my new home surpassed my expectations. As I was not local whilst the build process was happening, I continually got photographic updates on the build as things happened, which was great for me. It would be my pleasure to build with SJD again.
In love with our new home!
Our new home is absolutely incredible! Our whole experience with SJD has been amazing, with a special mention to Madison our sales consultant and Matt Miller our supervisor, they both blew us away with their work ethic, how thorough they were with their roles in this build, how at ease they made us feel when communicating and making decisions with them, we can comfortably say they are one of the top reasons we would definitely choose to build with SJD in the future. The quality and affordability of our build won us over too, for a young family... Read moreof 5 we couldn't look past the SJD display home we initially walked through before deciding to build. We highly recommend SJD, thank you for such a wonderful experience and for our beautiful new home, we love it beyond words!
Simply the best!
After a majorly misleading and disappointing experience with a local boutique builder, out fortunes changed when we discovered SJD Homes. Firstly I would like to thank our exceptional sales consultant Mark Battersby for his limitless patience and outstanding professionalism. Secondly, post contract, we were high-fiving when we got the news that Matt Miller was appointed as our construction supervisor. We first heard about Matt via a neighbour who built their home with SJD and who had Matt as their supervisor. They were very impressed with his e... Read moreye for detail, superb communication and his personal commitment to deliver a quality build. They weren’t wrong, Matt proved to be was a night and day experience compared with other supervisors we’ve dealt with in the past. Despite being jaundiced by previous experiences and indifferent to mediocrity, Matt and SJD Homes restored our faith in the building industry by delivering an exceptional home that we can be proud of. Well done to all the team and thank you!
Overall quite impressed with our build. In the midst of uncertainties in the construction industry, we count ourselves very blessed.
We were well informed most of the times if there would be any delays or hiccups during the build. Our SS Matt Miller was good with communicating this to us. Still a few things that would need attention at the 3 months maintenance check. Some of the items are pending from the list post our PCI but will still raise it up during that review. Would I build again with SJD?..Definitely
Our Dream Home…
Sometimes well researched plans and careful attention to detail result in awesome results.
We chose SJD as our builder having used the company before by a family member.
The peace of mind knowing they are rock solid in these rocky times led us in a uninterrupted build that we now call home.
From professional display home interaction to planning and finally the build left us pleased we had chosen SJD.
The build quality from all trades has been fantastic and we are now so proud of our new home.
Our site supervisor Matt Miller has given us a stre
Dear SJD Homes
We wanted to take a moment to express our appreciation for your work in building our new home. We are extremely pleased with the results.
In particular, we would like to call out the hard work and professionalism of our Building Supervisor, Daniel. Daniel excelled in several areas, specifically:
Communication: throughout the process Daniel kept us well-informed about the progress, any potential issues, and the expected timelines.
Quality Control: Daniel's attention to detail and commitment to ensuring the highest quality did not go unnoticed.
Big Family, Big Home, Big Kudos to SJD!
Desperate for a change of lifestyle/pace, and also looking for an opportunity for our large family to call a big house 'Home', we under the recommendation of friends, moved forward with SJD. The sales consultant throughout the initial planning process was involved and creative in finding solutions, by designing a place suitable for all nine of us by modifying the already large Caversham Grande. Changes in thoughts or ideas were never a hassle and to be honest the sales consultant helped design us a fantastic home that has amongst many things, s... Read moreeven bedrooms, a theatre room, front lounge, three bathrooms/toilets and a entertainer's dream wrap around alfresco. We couldn't have done it without her. You know who you are! The colour selection process, although daunting, was very professionally handled and had the right balance of the consultant's suggestions when we were struggling with the options, coupled with taking a step back and encouraging us to trust our own thoughts/choices. When we wanted to make a change after we'd slept on it, this was facilitated with no fuss. Once construction commenced the build proceeded at a rapid pace. This was extremely important to us, as we had been staying in a four bedroom, one bathroom rental. Our build, though quite large, overtook other house builds in the area that were under construction with other competing building companies. Tradesman were put on a well organised schedule with minimal delays. Communication from our site supervisor was excellent in its speed, clarity and down to earth nature. No question was deemed silly or annoying and we were always met with a cheerful and friendly disposition. Like all builds there was some things that needed to be sorted after handover, yet they have been dealt with efficiently and where a slight wait was needed, accompanied by clear communication. As I'm writing, there is only one issue outstanding that will be sorted shortly by our site supervisor. Thanks mate, you've been gold! To say that we are happy and satisfied with our house is an understatement. SJD employees made this build possible and SJD's designs and inclusions were just what we were after. We are proud of our big home; the way it was designed, the manner in which it was supervised, the speed it was constructed (only nine months) and the quality of the build. Despite the uncertainty in the construction industry, SJD forged ahead and is a popular builder in our area. Our final cost was exactly as our estimated cost. No nasty surprises, just great ones! Thanks SJD, it's been a pleasure.
An Exceptional Home Building Journey with SJD Homes
I had an outstanding experience working with the team at SJD, and I can't praise them enough for their exceptional service, efficiency, and the high-quality work they delivered. From the moment we embarked on our home-building journey to the final touch, SJD Homes proved a remarkable choice.
One standout feature of our experience was the remarkable team they placed for my project. Scott, the site supervisor, and Lou Fuataga, our salesperson, played pivotal roles in ensuring a seamless and top-notch construction process. Their attention to deta... Read moreil and dedication were truly commendable. Right from the very beginning, Lou Fuataga was attentive to our needs, taking the time to understand our vision and requirements. Lou went out of his way to visit the construction site to check on the quality of the work. Scott Cooksley, our supervisor, deserves special mention for his incredible work overseeing the construction. He maintained constant communication and kept us updated on every phase of the project. Scott's attention to detail and commitment to quality were evident in the finished product. He made sure that all the defects in the private inspection reports were rectified promptly. The maintenance team including Courtney, Brianna, Aime, Sara, and Isabella has been very responsive on every occasion and resolved my issues promptly. Thank you so much for this wonderful home :)

The final price was what we expected considering the upgrades that we added to the original price.
Very happy and would not hesitate to build with them again.
Our dream home!!
From beginning to end we couldn't fault SJD Homes. We had constant communication throughout the entire build, their attention to detail and the quality of finishes is second to none. Our supervisor Andrew was amazing, he is a wealth of knowledge and always gave us updates and kept us in the loop which was really important for us having a custom design. We couldn't be happier with the outcome and 2 years later still get so many compliments on our beautiful home. I can't recommend SJD Homes highly enough and wouldn't hesitate to build with them again.Show details

Questions & Answers
Good morning, just wondering do you build in country Victoria? Avenel, just north of Seymour is where we are looking to start building
Do you build in Werribee?. We have no builders out here providing a two story plan like the Picollo 24.5. It is the only one in melbourne so far we have found that fits on our very small 21m lot due to the green space required by Development Victoria estate.
