Our name says it all.
We build homes,
not just houses.

Establishing ourselves as custom home builders in Adelaide in 2004, our dedication to building quality luxury homes speaks for itself. We’ve collected a string of awards for excellence from Master Builders Association (MBA) and Housing Industry Association (HIA) for contract homes of every size and budget.

As a boutique building company, we value the relationship we build with our clients.

Our tight-knit team takes immense pride in working together to deliver outstanding results on every home we build by collaborating with you to fully understand your needs and aspirations. Whether you’re looking to downsize into something more modest and manageable, or upsize to a larger home versatile enough to accommodate a growing family, we can design and build the perfect home to suit your lifestyle.

At every stage, you can trust us to manage the entire project. From initial concepts, through the approvals process, to the installation of the final fixtures and fittings, our aim is to make the process as smooth and stress-free as possible. The result: a superior quality home you’ll love for years to come.

There’s no place like a Clairville Home. Contact our team for a consultation today.

Whatever you need, our team is here to help.

Building Designers

The design of your home rests with our building design team. You’ll be introduced to your designer during your initial consultation, where you can share your ideas of what you need and what you’d like. They’ll help refine your vision and provide ideas and solutions you may not have considered.

Once your plans are drawn up, they take care of all the correspondence and documentation required by the engineers, council and certifiers for planning and development approvals to get the construction process underway.

Interior Designer

Get the look you love with our interior design team. Bring a selection of images for your preferred style of décor and they’ll select the right colour palettes, textures, finishes, floor coverings, appliances, light fittings and more to achieve a design solution that reflects your individual style and personality.


Together with company director, Joe Totani, your estimator will set about sourcing the best suppliers and trades in Adelaide to complete your home to the style and budget you’ve established. Their role is to bring your vision to reality in the most cost effective way, ensuring your home represents exceptional value for money.

Site Supervisor/ Construction Manager

Once your home reaches the construction stage, we’ll introduce your dedicated site supervisor / construction manager who’ll keep you informed of progress throughout the build. They liaise between trades, suppliers and our office to keep things running to the schedule they’ve set, and resolve any issues which may arise to ensure your build progresses smoothly. They’ll also take you through the handover process on completion of your home, before presenting you with the keys.

Supporting Trades and Suppliers

We’ve established ongoing working partnerships with a selection of Adelaide’s finest trades and suppliers to complete your new home to the highest standards.
