    Hi All

    I have been trying to research on reliable builders (custom) for a duplex development I have planned on a block of land in Sydney. Every renowed builder has got +s and -s reviews and all the custom fairly new builders have got no reviews only. I am finding it difficult to trust one and kick start my project. Would anyone here, has got any personal building experience and recommendations ?

    Few of the builders that I am considering are, any other builder you would like to recommend ?

    Champion Homes
    ZAC homes
    Merit homes
    Xclusiv Built projects
    Chateau Builders
    HR Building pvt ltd
    Clarenden Homes (Saying they will do custom)
    Metricon (again saying they will do custom)

    Pick from any of the duplex builders who were nominated on the NSW Master Builders Association annual awards.

    Built our home with Metricon - we like their finishes. If I were to build a duplex, I would probably go to them.

    I guarantee you no matter who you go with, you will have a rollercoaster ride. Enjoy it buddy.

    At the very least make sure you check lisences, history of any complaints etc, and one that is well recommended. Then have your contract looked over by someone expereinced. Dont go with the cheapest and a builder who communicates well with no thug-like tendencies is a huge plus. Though often hard to know until the build is underway.

    I built with Adenbrook
    Their admin side was a bit slow annoying
    But once the build start everything went well
    Was very impressed, especially the way they handled any defects found
    They do custom design and were quiet reasonably priced

    Im surprised Clarendon would assist you - Last time I checked they refused to use their own design on a single house as part of a retain exisiting dwelling and build a dual occupancy

    I was looking at masterton and their budget brand last week, seemed reasonable value.
