Our Difference

True custom design, exclusive service, high quality.

Busby Homes is proud to be a true custom design builder who limits the number of houses we commit to build each year. This means that we can be exclusive in the level of attention to our customer needs. – and the quality of our work is always excellent. We use both expert suppliers and trades with whom we have established long-term and trusted relationships. Ours is a genuinely bespoke service and we work with you to bring about your vision to create your forever home.

As a true custom home builder, we offer a personalised service every time we build a home in Melbourne. This sets us apart and we’re proud of this distinction.

Many building companies say they build custom homes, but in reality, it’s likely to be a choice from a handful of pre-existing designs that they modify by adding rooms or moving a wall. Busby Homes offers a very personal design service, that starts from a blank sheet of paper; our expert and experienced designers then work with you to bring your vision to life to get the best possible outcome from your block of land.

You may like the look of a previous Busby Homes project and wish to incorporate some of those elements into your new home, which we are more than happy to accommodate. But ultimately, every design has a unique genesis – you.

Integrity of design

The consultation process is one of the most important stages in the design of your new home. Your design consultant will meet with you at one of our design centers to compose a detailed design brief for your new home. This will involve exploring the physical space requirements, how those spaces relate to each other and the style and feel you wish to create.

You will be able to work with your design consultant to refine your concept. Once you are happy with this an initial design layout, it will then progress to a feasibility study.

This is where our drafting team will draw up the concept and a formal quotation is provided so you can decide if you want to progress to the preliminary agreement.

The is when formal drawings and contract specifications are prepared, your final changes and variations are documented, engineering is obtained, and a building contract is prepared for your signature.

Communication is a crucial part of the ongoing discussions. The more defined and comprehensive your briefing is the better the customer journey. However, we understand that many clients are new to the building experience so, we are here to assist, guide and offer advice along the way.
