New homes

Together with our architect, we will work with you to design and build the home of your dreams. With a range of different inclusions, we will deliver the best home to suite your lifestyle and budget.

We also have a range of architecturally designed house plans for you to choose from should you not want to have a home specifically designed for you. Each of these plans can also be altered to suite your individual needs.


If you are thinking of extending your existing home, we can work with you through all stages of the building process. Our architect can create the ideal extension to suite your home, lifestyle & budget. We then take care of all the approvals and then work can begin – it’s that simple!


Do you love living in your neighbourhood but want a new home? Is a knockdown rebuild too expensive? Then why not renovate. We can give the outside of your house a total makeover – it can look like a totally new home! We will also work with you to create an entirely new interior – from stunning new kitchens & bathrooms to removing walls to create that open plan feel.

Outdoor entertaining areas

There is nothing nicer than relaxing with family and friends in a beautifully appointed outdoor entertaining area. A deck, pergola or outdoor kitchen are fabulous additions to any home. We can create and build an outdoor living space that everyone will enjoy.

“Steve and his team did a wonderful job on our deck and installed two cedar colonial windows. We couldn’t have been happier with their work and recommend them to anyone”

“Inspired Building Group did an amazing job on our extension. Steve is very professional and has a wonderful sense of attention to detail. He offered great advice and information giving us ideas to make our extension a fantastic addition to our family home ”

Kylie & Eric, Isabella Plains ACT

“My fiancé and I just bought a new house in Calwell which needed a bit of work. Particularly, in the bathrooms but also a few other touch ups as well.

Concerned about the budget we obviously didn’t want to spend too much but also didn’t want to compromise on quality. Boy did we find the right bloke!

We did our research and got a few quotes to check competitiveness but decided to go with Steve from Inspired Building mainly because he appeared the most professional and mentioned the triple water seal in the bathrooms which the others didn’t. Although, he was competitive price-wise he wasn’t the cheapest of the quotes.. but as the saying goes ‘you get what you pay for’ and that really turned out to be the case with Steve.

Quality and professionalism is often hard to find in the building trades and we have heard so many horror stories of botched renovations resulting in blown budgets and finger pointing between the different trades (i.e. “not my fault that was the tiler / plasterer / painter / electrician etc who I have nothing to do with… complain to him etc).

Not so with Inspired Building. Steve took complete control and responsibility over the WHOLE job and worked with all the other trades seamlessly to deliver the end product on time and on budget (well pretty damn close at least – my fiancé and I couldn’t help ourselves with a few additions which weren’t in the original quote. He even built me a custom work bench in the garage after all the house renovations where finished).

And to top things off, he even gave us a discount on our bill because of a few scratches in the existing slate floor caused by other tradesman… ever heard of that before!?!?

If you are looking to renovate your home stress free, Steve from Inspired Building is the ticket. Don’t compromise on quality in your own home… so glad we didn’t.

Thanks Steve!

Inspired Building Group extended and renovated my house in Duffy. Working in the construction industry myself, only the most professional and best quality work would pass. It certainly did pass. Great work, fair priced and Steve, the builder/boss, is incredibly personal and accommodating.
