If you’ve been waiting to build or renovate your home, now may be the time! As part of the economic response to the Coronavirus, the government is giving eligible home owners $25,000 to “to build a new home or substantially renovate an existing home”. Some key points:

  • Value of the new home build must be less than $750,000 and must be built as your principal place of residence (i.e. investment properties are not eligible for HomeBuilder)
  • Homes alone – not unit purchases – are eligible for HomeBuilder
  • It will be means tested – individuals must earn less than $125,000 per annum and couples less than $200,000 combined per annum (based on your 2018/19 tax return or later)
  • You are a natural person (not a company or trust), using a licensed builder that you are not related to
  • You are aged 18 years or older
  • You are an Australian citizen
  • Construction must commence within three months of the contract date

Byron Bay builder Rob Robertson leads Cape Byron Building Co. We service the Northern Rivers of NSW- Byron Bay, Bangalow, Tweed Heads, Ballina, Lismore, and surrounds.

We pride ourselves on developing and maintaining a good relationship with our clients to give you seamless service with the minimum amount of stress to you.

Your Byron Bay builder will co-ordinate the carpenters, electricians, plumbers, plasterers, excavators and any other trades that may be involved in your project. Alternatively, you may choose to hold your owner/builder licence and take on the role of co-ordinating the trades yourself. We have the flexibility to complete your project how you want it, no matter how involved (or not) you wish to be.

Our promise to you

Friendly, reliable and committed service is what you can expect from us at Cape Byron Bay Building Co. Our track record speaks for itself.

We note that many clients have complained about past tradesmen either not showing up on time or at all, and not cleaning up after themselves. We make a commitment to you to show up when we say we will, and to keep your site looking tidy at the end of each day. Please have a look around the site and contact us for more details. Byron Bay Building Co have included numerous PDF downloads here on the website which can help you navigate Council requirements and answer some frequently asked questions. Whether it’s a renovation, new house build, extension, restoration, granny flat, decking, maintenance or something else building- related, we would be happy to chat to you about it and see how we can help.  Contact us today!
