What do you look for in a builder? You have all heard the horror stories of builders who did poor quality or incorrect work, did not communicate well with their clients, or were not transparent about costs from the start. No one should have to put up with that. Building a new home can be one of the biggest purchases in your lifetime. For the majority, designing and organising a build is beyond our own skills, which is why so many choose someone to undertake the whole process for them. You want to work with someone you can trust, who can be transparent. You want the plan you choose to be realised by the end of the build, and for someone to walk you through what is going to happen along the way. It is not too much to ask.
Rawdon Hill Homes fits this profile. We have extensive experience in building homes; outline a simple process which we walk through with our clients; we have many wonderful inclusions in our set price; work to an achievable deadline; have a wide variety of designs; and offer stylist assistance. The most comforting of all is that we have happy customers who can vouch that they moved into their dream home, on time and without a fuss.
Rawdon Hill Homes has been a family business for over 40 years and in that time we have built over 5000 homes. Over the years we have continued to refine our processes and expand our team to meet the needs of our clients and exceed their expectations. Our team of expert sales assistants, designers, construction workers and stylists, will assist you in finding the home that is perfect for you.
From the moment you visit one of our display homes or call us to book an appointment, there will be a member of our team to assist you. We pride ourselves on being transparent with our clients and keeping the lines of communication open. We want to hear what you are looking for in a home so we can realise your dream. We also want you to understand exactly what the planning and build process will look like, and answer any questions you have over the period of time that we are working with you.
A clear and simple process
We have a clear process we follow from your initial enquiry until we hand over the keys to your new home. This is to ensure the successful organisation and completion of your project, that you have a clear understanding of what is happening each step of the way, and so that we can deliver the best quality product and service. We let you know the timeline and fixed price of your home from the outset, so that you can budget accordingly and not have any nasty surprises. We also guide you through all the documentation involved and keep you up to date with the progress of the constructions stages.

Despite our growth from a humble family business into one of Melbourne’s leading building companies, we have never scrimped on quality. We know what you have heard about volume builders and how some have standard inclusions that are the bare minimum. In our homes, you receive quality inclusions as standard. Our decades of building outstanding homes speaks for itself – we are still going strong and have had people return to us to build their subsequent homes. Such is our attention to quality. For extra special inclusions, you can choose to add certain features to your design from our luxe inclusions list.

You need not worry about a lack of choice of designs either. We have 100 variants for you to choose from and are confident we can match you to your perfect plan. No matter how many bedrooms or bathrooms you are after, whether single or double storey, there will be a design that fits the bill. Furthermore, we can look at the size and orientation of your block to make sure your design makes the most of the sunlight in winter and shade in summer.
Unless you are an interior designer or have a flair for it, choosing a style and colour palette for your entire home is a frightening and overwhelming task. This part of the build process is vital in showing continuity in your home, and to reflect your own personality and style. That is why we pair every client with a stylist. They will walk you through choosing colours, fixtures and features which suit your tastes and that will also meld together seamlessly overall. Our stylists are experts at what they do and they will assist you in making your house a home.
Our happy customers are your best reason for choosing to build with us. Bobby Darren said of his experience” ”We had a block by the lake and Rawdon Hill’s choice of designs let us choose a house that looked like it was built to be there”. Another client said that they had to upsize their home as they had twins on the way and that “we moved in when they said we would”. It might seem to be a simple thing, but getting into your home by a specified date is unfortunately not always the norm for most builders
If you would like a builder who will deliver on a high quality home, with a fixed price and handover date, and who prides themselves on transparency and effective communication, then please contact us at Rawdon Hill Homes. We look forward to working with you to build the home of your dreams.
