Testimonials

But don’t just listen to what we have to say about ourselves, take a look at our past clients have to say about working with us.

"We did extensive research over 12 months into whether an extension and renovation or a knock down rebuild was the best and most cost effective option for us. Blackett was an easy choice as they were able to offer us a very competitive rate, sound advice and support throughout the process and a beautiful new home at the end. We couldn't be happier."
Sarah Page, Barton
"“We liked the fact Blackett Homes is a local Canberra company, which meant we could easily view their work and we could talk to friends who had used them to build previously. Blackett Homes built our home on time and on budget. We were pleasantly surprised to find someone working on our home almost every day during the build.”"
Greg & Ann, Forde
"“Now that we’re in our new home, we wake each day feeling like millionaires. We could not be happier with our decision to build with Blackett Homes and recommend them to anyone without hesitation.”"
James & Sally, Bonner
"“We were offered a very competitive quote, which was backed up by an excellent reputation in the market and clear evidence of sound track-record when doing knockdown rebuilds. It was a pleasure dealing with Blackett Homes at each stage of the build and they made the construction of our home a fantastic experience.”"
Steven & Melinda, Hughes
"Kim, Matt B and Scottie made the whole journey an easy, stress-free and pleasant experience. Blackett Homes has been very professional and accomodating in meeting all my needs and expectations. I am very pleased and happy with the end result and have learned so much about building a house! I would be more than happy to recommend Blackett Homes to anyone looking to build a home."
Colleen, Wright
"We could not be happier with the final product - our new family home - built by Blackett Homes. From the outset, the whole experience has been a really positive partnership to create something special, where nothing was ever a problem."
Lach and Loretta, Curtin
