Helping Owner Builders simplify the build process.

Find the ‘Must Do' courses based on the State you're building (requirements differ by state) PLUS the ‘Nice to Have' resources designed by us to help you simplify the process!

It's super important that you get your head around the insurances required to undertake an Owner Builder project. You act as the builder and with that comes risk.

Now it's time to really get down to business. You're well on your journey to owner building and this section will give you unlimited information to support you!

Owner Building in Australia

Do you know that you can build a residential home on your ‘own' property as an Owner Builder here in Australia?

Yes you can!

In fact, over 40,000 brave Australians decide to become Owner Builders every year. Whether it be a new build, an extension or a renovation.

It's because Owner Building gives you 1) control over the build, 2) the opportunity to save money and 3) the flexibility to do it over time.

Owner Building in Australia

Owner Building a home is a MASSIVE sense of achievement but it also comes with great risk. It's why we started this site. Back in 2016, we recognised a gap in the market for a well designed, easy to navigate, one stop shop that provided information for Owner Builders in the one place.

We now support Owner Builders in Australia with truckloads of information on this site – both information and recommendations for the all important Owner Building Insurance and Owner Builder Courses. Plus, the resources we developed in consultation with two builders that support Owner Builders through the entire process from deciding to become an Owner Builder, to completing the build.

Owner Building vs Registered Builder

Owner Building vs Registered Builder

There's no doubt that when it comes to building a new home or undertaking an extension or renovation, there are a considerable number of decisions that need to be made.

For some, one very initial decision to make is whether to go down the path of being an owner builder, or opting for the traditional path of engaging a registered builder.

It may be that you have the skills of a trade or your clear goal is to save on construction costs.

Whichever is the case, it's essential to really think thorough the owner builder option.

As an Owner Builder, you're responsible for overseeing and managing the ENTIRE build or renovation project and that means you need to be across building codes, on-site safety standards and when the mandatory inspections are required. The buck stops with you!

But it's possible! Join 7,000 members in our Private Facebook Group and you'll soon see that people are achieving their dream.
