Build in Common-180705-17

Unique project folder Toolkits for
any renovation or building project 

Our Build in Common Toolkits are the result of countless requests for help from people looking to renovate, build or
develop small-scale property projects.
It always seems to start with: Where do I start? - What should I do first? - Who do I need to speak to?

Our solution is unique! Asking the right questions gives you the right information on which you can make informed decisions for you and your family.

For the first time, you can have the build-cycle explained from start to finish, providing all the questions you need to ask yourself AND of building professionals before and during the project cycle. No need for lengthy courses, searching the internet for hours or reading a stack of books. 

Our unique range of project-specific hard copy Build in Common Toolkits have been designed for you to use as your go-to-guides when renovating or building your home or investment property.  

Select from our range of
Kitchen, Bathroom, Laundry, Extension, New Build and Property Development Toolkits.
From small-scale renovations, extensions, to new builds and subdivisions, we have something for every project!


Buy online and have your Toolkit delivered directly to your front door. Every Toolkit is filled with 80+ pages of specific questions to ask of your suppliers, trades professionals and builder, practical how-to information, build cycle sequencing and tips, tricks and jargon busters. Our Toolkits come to you beautifully printed in a handy project folder for you to add to as you plan, design and build your project.

"From beginners to builders, the Build in Common Toolkit has helped us gain the confidence to build our dream home. Before laying our hands on the guide we were procrastinating and unsure of what steps, questions or options we should explore. This simple to use project toolkit removed any ambiguity and gave us a logical framework to follow step by step with our builders saving us valuable time and money."
