We’re Custom Builder & House Renovator!

CH&L Builders is a locally owned and run business in Melbourne that specialises in construction & design of high quality, innovative and energy efficient houses and renovations/extensions at affordable prices. Our emphasis is exceptional customer service and aim to exceed client’s expectations, as referrals are one of the main goals of our business.

We want to build or renovate your house not only for the right price but also to fit your lifestyle. Your house should suit your needs perfectly, without compromise, without breaking your budget.

The CH&L difference


CH&L Builders is part of a professional network of local trades and suppliers. We are able to offer a higher quality, more personal & better value for money service, than the impersonal volume builders. Our clients enjoy a wide range of benefits such as volume purchasing power, over 120 pre-made designs and over 60 facades. Moreover, you have a single point of accountability: dealing with the builder from start to finish.

The value of a custom builder

We work with architecture firms to create a ‘one of a kind’ house to suit your wish list, your budget and your block of land. You may remodel or knock down and rebuild, you may have a sloping site, you may have acreage that has views, you may have certain restrictions or you may wish to have the greenest home in the region….. CH&L Builders is not only creative but a problem solver.

There is peace of mind

We pride ourselves on a stringent Quality Assurance process that is in place to ensure that there is consistency in each and every one of our completed homes. Independent Building Inspectors will undertake quality checks at the completion of each critical stage. When you do  finally move in, you will know that you have built with the very best.

Solid Guidance

  • √ We provide solid guidance and education throughout the whole process, ensuring that you are always updated.
  • √  We advice throughout the design process not only to avoid budget blow-out but also to enhance buildability of the design.
  • √  We make sure that a professional Design Team applies their skills to understand and follow your brief rather than pushing on their ideas and styles.

Transparency & Flexibility

  • √  Employ only industry standard contract which is designed to protect consumers rather than builders.
  • √  Provide Compliance Certificates and reports from Independent Building Inspectors.
  • √  We can meet you on site at any time.
  • √  We are flexible with our plans, don’t like something then you can change it.
  • √  You can make changes during construction.

Post Handover

  • √  Our commitment to you does not end when we hand over the keys to you. We will be on hand to assist you with any questions that you may have about your new home, including expert advice on how to keep your home looking as great as it was on the day you and your family moved in.
  • √ Most importantly, we guarantee the structural works for 10 years to give you peace of mind.


We found that Clyde very professional to deal with and he made every effort to make extra adjustments at our request and offered helpful ideas and improvements along the way. Any unforeseen issues were dealt with promptly. We are very happy with the finished product.

Chris & Kerry

The project ran smoothly and there wasn’t any unnecessary delay. You always kept us well informed along the way and you came and inspected their work at every stage to make sure all was done properly. We are very happy with the outcome and appreciate your personal dedication to the project. We have no hesitation in recommending you to any potential client.

Kam & Stephen

We were so impressed by the workmanship on the bathroom that we decided to employ him for a second time to renovate our en suite and laundry. We are very happy with the final result in all the rooms and in particular our en suite looks amazing and feels luxurious.

Whilst our Flemington project is currently at frame stage, we recently received a historic photograph of the home - found in a Flemington heritage group on Facebook - captioned as follows:
" 'Linlithgow' built in 1892 for George Burns Russell. This photograph was taken in 1966 by Dr Walter McCrae Russell, his childhood home. The Russell family moved out to Camberwell about 1910. This shows the home before two houses were built on both sides."
We're loving working on this grand old lady and ensuring it remains a well-loved home well into the future.

Today's new home builders look to create environments in which they can relax, recharge & find inspiration.
For many, a connection to the outdoors and rooms filled with natural light are important design considerations.
The featured home - our recent Beaumaris project - was built around a giant Pinetree that can be seen from most rooms in the house, adding dramatic visual impact.
