From the moment I met Andre at one of BLD's display homes, I knew my family would be looked after and we would have a gorgeous home.
We had shopped around at other builders in Canberra and none seemed accomodating to what we needed; a home with a 'linked area for a granny flat for my elderly parents. Others wanted us to change layouts of their existing designs; but BLD was the only one happy to desgin a bespoke house for our needs without an exorbitant price.
BLD looks after you throug all phases; from designing your home through to the construction completion. Andre aptly looks after the design phase and on signing the building contract we were handed over to Bob and Brenden for the build phase. Lisa and Anna take care of all admin and financials.
We heard many bad stories about builders, but from the beginning to the end, BLD were fantastic. They were great at explaining the process, letting us chat with the trades, and also advising us early of any problems, changes or delays. Bob always had an eye on ensuring all trades were completed to a high standard and aything less was rejected. This is what impressed us most about BLD. We knew and could trust that our home would be completed as a high quality build without an over-inflated price tag.
We would highly recommed BLD Homes to anyone. Our home is just what we envisaged it would be; beautiful yet a functional family home. If we ever building again, we wouldn't hesitate to use BLD.

Hi Bob & Lisa,
I would like to thank you for the time and effort you spent building my house in Bonner. Your attention to detail, along with the company's patience with my lack of understanding on building talk was appreciated and I especially loved the extra clean building site. Your kindness and willingness to go the extra mile to ensure a quality finish within an agreed time frame was outstanding. I have had so many people tell me how lovely, well finished, and presented my home is, which is a tribute to your great team and quality workmanship. My kids and I enjoy our new home each day, with the space, and open plan design to engage as a family.
I would highly recommend anyone build with BLD Homes and would definitely call again to build. Thank you to you all once again and look forward to keeping in touch.
Many thanks Sally Maher
Bob & Lisa,
Thank you for making the daunting process of building our new family home an absolute pleasure
Nat & I would like to thank you both for your tireless efforts answering all of our questions and delivering on the many administrative requests we made. Despite your very busy workload and competing demands, you were always more than happy to help and you always seemed to have the answer!
Bob, your exceptional organization skills and remarkable ability to coordinate the many different trades involved was simply remarkable. Your values and ethics were also displayed by the trade professionals involved in building our new home. I visited the construction site many times, often unannounced, and on every occasion I was greeted in a friendly and professional manner and witnessed quality workmanship and attention to detail.
Thank you for instilling the trust that was established during our initial meetings, this trust is the sole reason we engaged BLD to build our new home. Nat and I had many questions to ask and every answer given was honest and explained in simple terms. this theme was consistent throughout our entire experience and there were no hidden surprises. It was a pleasure to deal with a business where integrity is prevalent and uncompromised.
The best decision we made regarding our new home was choosing BLD, this was evident with a beautiful home which won the MBA awards!!!!Chris & Nat Coomber
Dear Bob, Lisa, Greg and Ana,
Firstly, a big thank you from our family of 5 for building our forever home. Your experience and guidance has been so very valuable on our first foray into building, that we have found the experience a pleasurable one.
From day one, we felt we were in safe hands and any questions we had were answered promptly and with great knowledge. Where specific industry knowledge was necessary you had the appropriate contacts, for example Kerrie Scott to assist with the interior design. Kerrie has played an important part in making our new house our home.
Once building had commenced, we were always kept informed of the progress and the office was always on top of the order of events and the decisions required for the next stage of the build. Lisa and Ana even sourced additional suppliers for us while we were still deciding on some features of our home, very welcome counsel while on this journey.
Greg is just an everyday superhero. Nothing was impossible for him and he is bi-lingual, able to explain things for my husband and for me! Greg is a great communicator not only with us but all the trades, where we had specific requests to be met.
Right now, we are happily living in our home, building our garden and planning our first Christmas here. It is still amazing that last year this all began with some pencil sketches that Andre prepared after a couple of chats. We are so happy with the end result and quality of the finish that we have confidently referred friends and family to BLD to build their dream home.
Again thank you for your friendship and support on this journey, may you complete the dreams for many more families in the years to come.
With thanks,Jim and Megan
This letter is to thank the BLD team (Bob, Lisa, Ana, Greg and Andre) for providing us with our wonderful home.
This was our first attempt in building a home, we were very nervous especially with such a large investment and have heard some bad stories with builders and clients, but with BLD this was not the case, it was all good. The sales negotiations with Andre and also Lisa and Ana over the house and land package were professional, positive, open and transparent with no hidden surprises. The design of our home has our touch to it so we thank BLD for their flexibility in altering the design as we are very happy with the layout.
Once it stopped raining in August 2010 Bob and the BLD building team got too work, and we watched our home evolve from a set of plans to reality. We got regular updates and were advised on when decisions had to be made. We then met Greg on site and we thank him for his punctuality and customer service, his knowledge of sub contractors and building in general is an asset to BLD and also he is very particular in what quality he expects from the contractors and thus we receive as the client, so we thank him for that. The customer service from the BLD team goes beyond the handover of the keys, with the expected minor repairs undertaken in a timely manner.
We have been in our home in Bonner, ACT since February and it is a pleasure waking up in it and coming home to it every day.
Thanks again,Brad, Karen, Kye and Miah Moggridge
