Custombuilt Homes was recommended to us from an acquaintance in the Building industry. We had purchased a block on the Perth Hills escarpment and were told that Gary Green was a specialist in construction in the Perth Hills.
Following our first meeting, we knew straight away that Gary was the builder for us as he had a ‘can do’ attitude and was open to thinking outside the box. We loved that he went out of his way to find solutions to building on a difficult site. He was also open to exploring new design methods and products that became available during the building process.
The Custombuilt Homes team were all highly skilled and professional in their approach. From Ian the Site Supervisor to Chris the carpenter, they were experts in their field and always happy to answer any questions we had. We actually enjoyed the building process and would definitely do it again. We felt that Gary’s approach was genuine and trusted him and his team to build our home. Their efforts were recognised and rewarded with the Housing Industry Associations (HIA) award for Best Framed Home in 2010.
We highly recommend Custombuilt Homes to anyone who is thinking of building a new home. You can rest assured that you’re in the best hands and will be very happy with the outcome.

Jenny and I would like to express our sincere appreciation to Gary and the staff at Custombuilt for our beautiful new home. We have built a number of houses and we can honestly say this is the first time it has been an enjoyable experience. Building is a high stress experience but Custombuilt do their best to make it much less so. From the meticulous planning and preparation and the beautiful design by Gary personally, to wonderful organisation, attention to detail and customer focus of Supervisor Ian, and the helpfulness of Chris, Gloria, Marnie and Alison, resulting in a building which complements the hills environment and with a quality finish – this was always going to be a good one. Thank you to everyone at Custombuilt.

Gary, Ian, Chris and the team at CBH have a unique take on the home building industry. They are genuinely passionate about building a high quality, functional, bespoke home. Having built a house previously through a ‘project’ builder, I can honestly say this time the build was pain free. Changes made during the build were met with enthusiasm, and feedback was sought throughout to ensure our home was exactly what we wanted.
If you want a house slapped together in 20 weeks, you should look elsewhere. If you want a solid home built with care and sound building practices, give Custombuilt Homes a call.
Alex & Katrina, Kalamunda
From start to finish and beyond – Gary, Ian and the Custombuilt Homes team are not only talented designers and builders but also very reliable, which is hard to come by in the industry.
This was my wife and I’s first build, so we didn’t have a lot of knowledge in the area, but in all communication, in person, over email or over the phone, we had all our questions answered in a way that made sense, and were always treated professionally.
All of the CBH staff from the cabinet makers, to the chippies, to the tilers and the painters – they all paid close attention to the work and treated our home build as if it were their own.
I would strongly recommend Custombuilt Homes, especially if you’re considering building in the Perth hills or on a challenging site.
David & Tracie, Martin
Having undertaken two previous building projects with Gary and his team at Custombuilt Homes, I cannot recommend their services highly enough. They have designed and built a set of residential units and a commercial building including offices for us. They did a fantastic job both times; the build quality and management of schedule and budget was excellent; this along their professionalism and efficiency ensured both builds were stress free from start to finish.
Recently deciding it was time to extend our own home, there was no need to “choose” a builder. Without hesitation we went directly to Custombuilt Homes and requested Gary and his team design and build the extension we wanted.
We appreciate their advice, honest approach, and can-do attitude and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again in future or recommend them to family and friends.

My wife and I set ourselves a serious challenge of building a very modern house on a small constrained lot in an established area. The land was surrounded by high walls on three sides and demanded an unusual solution. Knowing Gary from our days studying architecture together, I renewed our contact at the beginning of the design process. I needed to work with someone both skilled in design and who I could trust to develop up a competitive price. The end result is extraordinary. We live up in the air with all rooms facing north, soaring ceilings, 6 undercover parking bays, a separate apartment downstairs, and a lap pool running under the house. There are unique details everywhere, developed up by Chris – Custombuilt’s long term CAD expert and master craftsman – to millimetre perfect precision. We can control ventilation in every space to perfection with louvre windows – and through good design, air conditioner use is extremely rare. Perhaps the most valuable thing we experienced during the build was the personal communications with Gary during design, and almost daily with Ian during construction. There was not a cross word during the whole process, and we enjoyed every step of our “Grand Designs” experience. This team of three has been together for decades – not as businessmen, but because of the enjoyment they receive from what they do. We recommend them to anyone who wants a personalised and truly professional service.
Rob & Penny, Forrestdale
I have known Gary and the team at Custombuilt Homes for over 30 years. They have built 2 extensions on previous homes and built my current house and kennel block. I have found Gary and his team to be extremely efficient and they have always produced work of a very high quality. They made the building process a painless and enjoyable experience.
I approached Gary Green of Custombuilt Homes on the recommendation of a friend who was an engineer. The existing house was cracking badly because of clay on the site, so I chose to build in timber. Gary designed the house with our input. The house was built to a very high standard and completed in October 1995.
Since that time Gary and his crew have added a garage and workshops on the side of the house; fixed the jetty and concreted the boat ramp; dug a cellar that is entered from the house; built a studio on top of the garage robust enough to support a full size snooker table; and finally, recently refurbished the kitchen.
Any problems, and there have been very few, have been dealt with promptly and courteously. It is of note that a number of those who built the original house are still working with Gary.
I would have no hesitation recommending Custombuilt Homes.

Choosing a builder is a critical task. We were lucky to find Custombuilt Homes. We have built houses in several parts of the world, but our house built by Gary was the only one where we had no complaints at all. Very much enjoyed living there.
