A house is much more than a mere shelter, it should lift us emotionally and spiritually. ~John Saladino

Hand Built understand that designing a new home, a renovation/extension or a unit development is a big investment and needs to be done right the first time. With over 30 years’ experience in helping our clients realise their dreams, you can rely on and trust Hand Built to deliver creative, individual, yet practical solutions. Our qualified and experienced building designers assist our clients through the entire design process, from the initial consultation phase, to developing concept designs, through to final drawings & documentation for costing and approval. Energy efficiency and sustainable design are now key considerations by many of our clients with corresponding principles and construction techniques incorporated to achieve better than the 6 star minimum rating. Our 3D computer software also allows our clients to accurately visualise their project prior to construction. No matter the type of project, our team strive to deliver creative ideas and solutions, a personalised service to all our clients and show attention to detail.
