People we have helped build

Oscar and Celeste



Independent Building Advice gave us a perfect house design after having unsuccessfully engaged with 3 top building companies that failed to listen to our needs and produced a design that lacked practicality.

The IBA design was then tendered to 4 medium to small builders with a proven track record and financially sound. The end result was that we not only got a better more functional house but at a cost between 21 and 27% cheaper than that of the ‘top’ builders.

We also saved time in the process as Behan came to our home to work with us on the design rather than us having to book time with the ‘top’ builders who were time poor and did not offer up the same practical expertise. 

We are so happy with IBA and Behan and hope you make the right decision and call him too, just like we did.

Behan has been an invaluable asset to building our new home here in Perth, WA. IBA was the answer to our prayers after months of searching through display homes, project builders and sales calls.

I would recommend him to anyone looking for a helping hand starting their own home building journey.

Stuart and Fiona



Doing your first home build is a daunting prospect that you want to get right. Behan has made our first stage of this process so easy and enjoyable and I have full confidence going ahead. 

It’s all about having someone who knows the industry to avoid making the mistakes. Great advice to ensure we get a home that suits us, for the price we want in a timely way.
