Love your new home

We design & build beautiful, affordable high-quality homes. Come home to a warmer, dryer & more cost-efficient house.

Affordable Design

Because we are a design-and-build company, we charge a fraction for drawing up plans compared to an architectural designer.

Amazing Quality

Measure twice, build once. Our perfectionist approach enables us to run your build at optimal efficiency and you benefit.

Your own Superhome

ESJAY are Superhome members and proudly design and build energy efficient homes, using cutting-edge technologies.

Building guide

The building process consists of four mains stages:

1 – Plan

Firstly, an initial discussion about your requirements lets us decide on the style and scale of your house and the materials required so we can work out a budget. Bring a wishlist and any photos of homes you like to help us identify your personal style.

2 – Design

Next, with our in-house designer, we will produce some concept designs. We will then take feedback on the drawings and work towards making your dream a reality. The next step is to document the drawings and get Council consent for you.

3 – Budget

While the drawings are with the Council, we can deliver a fully itemised working price to easily work out where costs are allocated. Then, we can give you options for different materials and additional finishes & features.

4 – Build

The team at ESJAY Builders will work closely with you and our sub-trades throughout the building process to achieve a result that is both on time and within budget.

It can be difficult to find good builders & we feel very fortunate to have crossed paths with Esjay Builders. They are our builders of choice for sure! Some of the work they have done in our house has been of such a high standard that it has specifically been commented on by visitors.

    Sarah & Andrew
  • Esjay Builders Limited completed a renovation for myself and my husband and did an outstanding job. They worked long hours to complete the project within a very short timeframe (2 weeks) and I couldn\'t be happier with the work they completed. Everything was completed to a very high standard. The renovations fit in so with the rest of the house it looks like it was originally built like that. I would highly recommend them to everyone.
