Whether you’re building your dream home or an investment property, Building Versatility has the people, the resources and the versatility to provide the best outcome for you.



It’s in our DNA, and in our name

At Building Versatility, our promise to you is premium quality craftsmanship, service and affordability from start to finish.

Whatever your project – from small garden cottages to a larger family home or even a row of terrace homes – our team will deliver an original approach to your construction and guide you through the entire process.

Our passion is to create quality homes that have a sense of belonging to the NSW Southern Highlands and South Coast landscape. We are inspired by the traditional architecture of our home territory and incorporate those classic design principles into our designs where possible.

We have over 50 years’ combined experience in residential and commercial construction, property development and business management. We live in the towns and villages where we build and we understand the essence of these places, believing that every project should add value to the street and to the broader community.

Here at Building Versatility, we love what we do. We are proud of the homes we deliver, our dedication to sustainability and safety standards and most of all, of the strong and mutually beneficial relationships with our clients, trades and suppliers.

Custom Home Building

Versatile and Supportive

We’ll work with you, to bring your plans to life

In addition to creating our own range of home designs, Building Versatility work with clients and architects on their own designs.
The relationship between builder and client is a close one and often extends over a 2 year period, so it’s important that both sides are comfortable before proceeding.

During our initial meeting, we will explain our processes with you and review your plans and ideas. If you then feel that we are a good

match for you, and we feel the same, the formal process of quoting and contracting to build your home can begin.

If you are interested in us quoting the construction of a home that you have already had custom designed, please contact us. The number of projects we can take on at any one time is limited, as we always ensure that our team is not stretched and that our customer service and quality of supervision is maintained.

Our Cottage Designs

Versatile and responsive

Designing to suit future needs

In response to a growing demand for attractive, environmentally efficient small homes, Building Versatility is developing a range of cottage designs that can be built as a secondary dwelling on your property. The first of these is HAMPTON COTTAGE, designed specifically to complement the architecture of the larger traditional homes of the Southern Highlands and South Coast towns such as Jamberoo, Kiama, Gerringong and Berry.

Building Versatility - Cottage Designs - Hampton

This classic cottage design with high pitched roof, weatherboards and French doors has an open plan living area and a generous bedroom with adjacent bathroom. There is an attractive level of inclusions in our standard package, as well as a range of optional extras such as a car port, fireplace and solar power.

Subject to planning approval, you could use this cottage for accommodation of an elderly parent, as a first home for young adults, or to generate a second income in the private rental market including Air B&B. Hampton Cottage is also a great option as an arts studio, home based business or guest cottage.

The NSW State Government has encouraged the development of secondary dwellings through the introduction of its complying development plan for Granny Flats. For properties that meet the requirements, this provides a fast track option for approval of a second dwelling through a private certifier. To find out more about this state government planning policy and whether your property is compliant, go to the NSW Planning Portal.
