Who We Are

Who we are at Built for Living is a husband and wife partnership run by Rod & Kathy Grace. Along with a team of experienced trades and employees. We are passionate about industry standards and what we do.

What We Do

We take on the challenge of bringing to life your home improvement dreams with a fixed price contract. We’ll always keep you in the loop with job-tracking and communication 24/7. We guarantee the structural integrity of our work for 14 years, and we apply quality finishes to ensure user satisfaction.

How Long We’ve Been Doing It

The dream to build started on-site as a young 5 year old. Official trade training started in the 80’s, a little bit later… Studying at night and learning on the job by day with carpenters and builders, having completed all the requirements, Rod obtained a licence as a qualified Carpenter & Joiner in 1992 . Several more years of formal building studies at TAFE and construction work followed, and along with several academic awards, Rod was then granted a full builders licence in 1997.

Who We Do It For

If you appreciate good design and the building process and your time is limited, our service might be exactly what you need. We offer a design and construct service and can take care of all the necessary council approvals for you. Built for Living is for those happy to hire a professional builder to take over the hassle and manage the whole project. Would you like your time freed-up to focus on your own work and family?

Why Us?

Firstly, our key Builder Rod, is dedicated to excellence in his building work. Rod will ensure your home is built to accommodate your desires, looks good and is built to withstand the test of time.

Rod will bring energy to your project. Unlike other builders quoting long years of experience and resorting to rigid formulas, Rod is not ‘burned out’ – a common complaint in the building industry. Rod has managed to maintain his motivation which means bringing experience and the necessary energy to drive your project.

The Built for Living team is dedicated to bringing high standards to each and every job we do. We select trades-people that are specialists in their field. Kathy’s role as ‘Building Support Manager‘ serves as your ‘key’ contact throughout the process, liaising between you, the Builder and relevant contacts ensuring that all communication is open and clear. Rod’s role is to ensure your job progresses as planned and your new home dreams are achieved.

Our Commitment

At Built for Living our aim is to provide clients with high standard of building and renovation services. We aim to meet their needs while delivering their projects on time and on budget.
