Custom Design & Build

Price Certainty

A Balance Home is custom designed to our client’s budget and built for a fixed price.

We can design and build to an agreed cost because Paul Craig heads the design team as well as the build team. His solid understanding of building material costs, trade costs and a wide range of building techniques means there are no unpleasant surprises along the way.

“Paul is very approachable, easy to deal with and has a very open cost structure”  Glen – Brompton

Individually Designed with the Environment in Mind

Each Balance Home is a unique reflection of its client. It begins with an individual brief and evolves as the client and design team share ideas and overcome challenges to produce a comfortable, energy efficient and inspirational home.

A positive building experience

“We are delighted with the outcome but equally with the process. We enjoyed collaborating in the design and build. We had lots of ideas about low energy strategies which, in addition to Paul’s wealth of knowledge, resulted in a clever and comfortable home that is easy to maintain and which reflects our ideas and values.” Margie – Eden Hills

At Balance Homes, we pride ourselves on our service and ability to meet our clients’ needs. We take the view that no challenge is insurmountable and that the building process needs to be flexible and based on trust and respect. To us, the most valued accolade is not just that our clients love their new energy-efficient home, but that the building experience was a positive one.

Quality Workmanship

At Balance Homes, we have gathered some of the finest tradespeople in Adelaide into a professional and consistent team. The combination of clear leadership and quality workmanship ensures a Balance Home sits above the pack in terms of construction excellence and professional finish. The skill and experience within the Balance Homes team means it is capable of providing innovative solutions to any architectural challenges.

“The reason I chose to go with you (Paul) is that everyone I have spoken to, that has built with you, has had a good experience,” Sean, Eden Hills

We let you choose

We believe in choice and flexibility and do not lock our clients into a fixed appliance or fittings package. So, if you love that tap, bath or oven, we are happy to build that into the construction quote without charging a variation fee.

In that way, no two Balance Homes are the same. But, for those who may like a helping hand with the many selections required for a new home, we also offer a standard range of high quality fittings and fixtures secured at generous trade discounts.

We can help you too

Take advantage of our interior design service, including a free initial consultation, to help guide you in areas such as interior and exterior colour schemes, tiles, floor coverings, laminates, benchtops and more.

Other Additions and studios

Replacing a rear brick wall with an open-plan lounge/dining/kitchen and deck not only transformed this Brompton house, but reduced home heating costs by capturing and storing free winter sun in internal thermal mass such as this polished concrete floor.

“Paul identified areas in our design that were both practical and cost effective which resulted in an extension I am extremely happy with.” Glen (Brompton)
