About Build-it

You might be a professional or someone looking to start a home renovation project. Build-It is made for Australians who need to see things built - with articles for contractors, hard-working tradies, architects, home hobbyists, those with home reno dreams, businesses, and everyone in between.

We are here to support you, whether you are:

  • Looking to hire a contractor to help with a home project and want to know what you’re asking for.
  • A professional looking to stay informed about new products and to be up-to-date on your knowledge so when a customer asks about something, you’re able to stay one step ahead of them.
  • Seeking inspiration for everyday improvements around the home.

Forget bland AI-generated or cookie cutter content. Here at Build-It, our team of local writers are grounded, everyday people who are passionate about the industry, tools, and the hard-work that goes into building and supporting projects.

He has a strong passion for new and emerging consumer technology within the building sector. He lives on the Sunshine Coast - usually found glued to the deck of a surfboard.
