Owned and Directed by William Braaksma, Lifestyle Bespoke Home Builders was born from a desire to acheive something better. Will, a carpenter by trade had done it all. Renovations, Extensions, and New homes all contracting to others. He saw homes that needed repairs as soon as completed, extensions that didnt suit the need of the owners and renovations of a 'that will do' mentality. In 2014, Will obtained his Builders license in Vic and began his own business as a Registered Builder Unlimited.

Alongside wife Crystal ( a Registered Nurse), they offer something unique.

A personal experience- no different people for each stage here,

A build that we are proud to put our name to- and we do (a plaque goes on each project (with owners consent of course)

Incorporating Crystal's background of community nursing into the design, they think about the future and how they can design your home to suit your needs now and yet to come. Wider doorways, stepless entries, reinforced walls. Little changes that mean no costly home mods later if you should need them. Check out the Adaptable Living page for more info.
