Custom Home Builder Illawarra
“We can bring your vision to life.”
Keiron Moore, Managing Director
Looking for a custom home builder Illawarra who can build or renovate your dream luxury home so it looks and functions exactly the way you expect?
CKS Projects Aust Pty Ltd is an experienced family owned and operated building company whose focus is to deliver high-quality luxury homes and extensions you can count on regardless of your budget and timeframe.
We put a greater emphasis on attention to detail – ‘it’s our passion’ – because we appreciate quality design and the aesthetics, since we’re putting our name on it.
But we also know how important it is to deliver on our promise, which is to hand over a home or extension built to the highest standard and on time, on budget and with no hidden costs.
Our process for building custom home in Illawarra
You can trust we won’t take a cookie-cutter approach that could compromise on quality. Even our managing director, Keiron, will be involved from concept to completion to ensure we bring your vision to life. Keiron is well-versed in all aspects of custom construction due to his 25 + years’ experience in the industry.
He’s a hands-on leader who puts his Illawarra clients first and makes sure they’re kept fully informed every step of the way. He has designed a fantastic process to offer each client a stress-free experience throughout their relationship with us:
Step 1: Consultation
Once you’ve contacted CKS Projects about your custom-built home project in Illawarra, we ask you to complete a questionnaire to give as much information about the project as possible. This helps us determine whether we’re a good fit for it. After analysing the information, our consultant books a phone consultation with you to discuss further before we can confirm whether we can take on your project.
If we feel we’re a good fit, we meet with you on-site or in our office, discuss your needs and the functionalities you require, and explore a range of modern or classic design ideas to see which fits best with your personality.
Step 2: Planning & Design
You meet with Keiron and our designer to determine your design needs, expectations and the next steps to set the wheels in motion. Next, we work with you to create a concept plan, and then review and update it based on your feedback before giving you a quote.
Once you’ve approved a design that meets both your needs and budget, we improve and update it to a Building Approval level of detail. We also engage any other consultants, such as engineers and private certifiers, to help us prepare and lodge the plans for your custom home project with the council.
Step 3: Contract & Approvals
We’re an honest and transparent custom home building company that guarantees you’d know the exact cost of your contract. Rest assured there won’t be any hidden costs or surprise invoices along the way. Everything that we promise in your design and specifications will be clearly noted in your proposal. This way you know up front how much your project will cost.
Step 3: Construction
We’re a proactive team and we work best when there’s consistent communication so you know where your project stands and can provide feedback or raise any concerns. For example, during construction, you’ll get updates about the progress of your build and any changes or complications that arise. You’ll also get access to a client portal to check the progress 24/7, as well as budget updates including variations, progress payments, and the running and grand totals. Our construction team will also organise various meetings with you on-site during this phase.
Step 4: Handover
Before handing you the keys to your custom build in Illawarra, we make sure we’re delivering what we promised and at the highest quality possible. We walk you through and allow you to ask questions and give feedback. We make any alterations so you’re happy with our products and workmanship before handover. Our dream is to always produce something the client will be keen to tell their friends about.
Step 5: Ongoing Support
Handing you the keys doesn’t mean goodbye. As experienced professional builders, we’re committed to you and your new home or extension. Your contract includes a maintenance period following the handover, and this is to address any issues that arise once your home or extension has had time to settle and adjust. Your contract would also include our guarantee as well as a number of warranties for custom builds and custom extensions. Don’t worry, we will detail all this information in your contract.

We can thoroughly recommend Keiron and CKS Projects. Our project involved adding a second storey to a three-bedroom cottage, converting it into a spacious 5-bedroom, 3-bathroom family home. We had tricky site access and a tight time frame. We interviewed several building companies before our architect suggested we speak to CKS. Right from our first meeting Keiron proved to be an excellent, straight forward communicator with meticulous attention to detail. During the construction phase we were impressed with his pro-active suggestions and his capacity for onsite problem solving. His crew were efficient and organised and a pleasure to have around. Our project came in on time and on budget and we are thrilled with the result.
