We do things Differently

We are a family-owned and operated building business in Lake Cargelligo, servicing the Central West Region – including West Wyalong, Forbes, Parkes, and Condobolin as well as Griffith, Hillston and Temora.

Founded in 2009 by brothers Lachlan and Ian Dunn, we’ve built a wide variety of homes, and our excellent reputation reflects the high quality of our work.

We aren’t daunted by unusual projects or renovators who dare to dream big. We’re the builders who go where others don’t.

Proud of our business

We’ve worked hard to get to where we are today. Every home is a project we’re proud of, and we put our all into the work we do.

Country born and bred

We live and work in rural Australia, where often your build is limited only by your imagination.

We love the wide-open spaces of the Central West Region. Our experience means we’re just as comfortable building on a 500sqm block in the centre of town, as we are building on a 500-hectare property.

Experienced and innovative

We are a strong team of highly-skilled carpenters, and we thrive on the challenges presented by unusual sites and home builds.

We understand no two homes are the same, just as no two families are the same. Our innovative approach means we can adapt our build to suit the site available.

Open and honest

We always endeavour to complete our builds within the timeframe and budget agreed. You’ll have a dedicated point of contact throughout the project, and we’re happy to answer your questions at any time.

Meet our hard-working crew

We’re a family-run business and a close-knit team. We work hard, and take pride in what we achieve.
