We certainly made the right decision when we chose John Bodin as our builder. We feel this renovation has been a pleasure rather than a stress and John and his team had a lot to do with that…Read more

When Matt and Jenny wanted to renovate, they wondered how to get started. They’d looked at a lot of new houses, but eventually purchased a slightly older house south of the river with a block of land in a lovely quiet area that they really liked. The purchase was made with the idea to renovate…Read more

John did Gillian & Bill’s kitchen in Willetton. They moved into the house two years after it was built and they’ve been there now for 16 years. Gillian said there wasn’t much wrong with her 18 year old original kitchen, but it just didn’t have enough space, so they decided it was time to renovate. And because Bill works in the building industry, he was able to get a couple of good quotes on cabinetry and figured he would do the rest of the renovation himself. It started with family members pulling out the old cabinets to ‘recycle’ them into a new life elsewhere… Read more

I asked Mike and Ebony why they chose John Bodin and his company One Design and Construct for their renovation. The answers I heard were all about John’s special qualities as a builder and designer and about what separates One Design and Construct from big multinationals and other building companies. Did Mike and Ebony get quotes from other companies? Of course! Who wouldn’t? They found that one of the really big building companies quoted 40% more than smaller competitors. And One Design and Construct didn’t win the contract with Mike and Ebony because they were the cheapest. A couple of other small building companies quoted a little lower. But as everyone knows, the cheapest price isn’t always the best deal….Read more

One Design and Construct recently completed the addition of an ensuite attached to our main bedroom as well as some smaller projects around the house. From start to finish, we were blown away with the professionalism and quality of work of the company. John was in constant contact with us throughout the process, the workmen were reliable and the end product completely exceeded our expectations.

We would highly recommend One Design and Construct to anyone looking for a dependable, trustworthy builder with great service and even better results- we can’t wait to start our next project with them.

We engaged John to assist with a study and garage extension, replacing our old brick pillar carport. It was clear from the first meeting, that John is a consummate professional, who clearly understood our building objectives. From design, to council approval, construction and handover, John and his team were a pleasure to deal with.

The demolition of the existing carport was prompt and with minimal mess. The site was marked appropriately with security fencing and danger tape. A builder is only as good as his tradespeople, and this is one of the highlights of our building experience. Every tradesperson that John utilised was on time, friendly, professional and happy to entertain conversation with our family members, including our 4 year old boy with a sense of inflated site manager responsibility.

Since the project has been completed, our neighbours, family and friends all comment on how well the project matches the existing dwelling and blends into the character of the street.
We highly recommend John and his team for any renovation, extension or building project you are considering.

We were talking to a relative one day saying how we were thinking of insulating and enclosing our exposed raked ceilings in the kitchen and lounge and they suggested we try One Design & Construct for our renovations. We did, and we are very pleased to say how professional the job was undertaken and completed within 5 working days.

The end result is wonderful and we are over the moon with the finished product! We would highly recommend them for any renovations.

I am addicted to ‘ Grand Designs’! Luckily I took on the advice from the show and employed a builder who knew what he was doing.

The whole journey was so exciting. Communication was a key point, I knew what I wanted, and every effort was made to deliver a quality product.

A few logical changes, suggested by John, improved the final outcome, with consideration of my tight budget and still on time to accommodate a home wedding a couple of weeks later! Wow, that was working under pressure. Now I have my own ‘Grand Design’ (although its only little) thanks to John, Brett and the rest of the crew.

A huge thank you to you and your wonderful team, it has been a pleasure working with you all and we are so happy with the results of our new extension. One design & Construct made the whole process easy, stress free and everything was seamless from the beginning to the end.
John was always professional, ready to listen, efficient, has amazing attention to detail and made the journey exciting with minimal disruption to our family life.

He always kept us well informed, kept the project on time and nothing was ever too hard, always going the extra mile. We can’t recommend you highly enough, thank you!

A big thanks to John and the boys from One Design & Construct on our recent home renovation.
His team have produced a top quality job in the time frame they allocated, and managed to do it with little, or no impact to our busy family’s day to day routine.

The tradesmen were polite and friendly, and on completion, they left the worksite in a neat and tidy state. All in all, a job well done. Thanks again
