Building a new home should be an exciting and positive experience. At Blackett Homes, we are mindful that choosing a builder is a big decision. That’s why we encourage you to ask us lots of questions and take a look at some of our past projects and display homes. It is important to us that you feel comfortable and confident that your new-home build is in trusted hands.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have a question that is not answered below.

How much will my new home cost?

This is by far the most frequently asked question. While new-home prices will vary depending on the size, design, inclusions and site (block) conditions – the good news is, our experienced and friendly team is able to provide you with a price guide, based on your brief. Get started by having a conversation with us.

Do you build custom-designed homes?

Yes. Our Design + Build service is a niche that sits between a project home and an architecturally-designed one. By choosing our Design + Build service*, you will collaborate with our designer to create your dream-home concept. With your established brief, our team is able to determine the cost before you commit thousands of dollars upfront.

* Terms and conditions apply: There is an upfront fee of between $600-$1000 for the development of your Design + Build concept.

Is there scope to make changes to your standard home designs?

Yes. Our design team is happy to make modifications to our standard home designs. We understand every block is different and every family is different, too. By tweaking our standard designs, your new home is able to better reflect your site’s orientation and your lifestyle. It is a cost-effective option that our agile team can quickly implement.

How do we make the inclusion selections?

Here is the fun part! We include a full consultation with our national-award winning interior designer, who will guide you through all of your external and internal selections. You will also meet with our kitchen designer, who will provide you with information and inspiration on how to achieve a stunning and practical kitchen – to suit your style and budget.

Where do you build?

We build new homes throughout Canberra and surrounding regions, including Googong. From house and land packages in new suburbs to knockdown rebuilds in established suburbs, Blackett Homes has an excellent track record. As one of the longest standing residential builders in Canberra, our local knowledge is a standout in the industry.

How long will it take to build my home?

We offer a build-time guarantee in all of our building contracts. It is usually between 20 and 26 weeks. Of course, build times do vary depending on a number of factors – home size, design complexity, and site access and location. The build time for your new home will be discussed and clarified before you sign the contract.

Design + Build

Our Design + Build concept is a niche that sits between our standard home designs and an architectural design. You will create your own concept, in collaboration with our designer.
