We are first time renovators and as such really didn’t know where to start. We had a brief idea of what space we needed and that was about it. David listened to our  ideas and gave us some excellent advise. He also helped with all of the council requirements. All of the ideas he suggested we went with and we are both so pleased we did. The finished room, laundry and deck are exactly what we wanted. The workmanship of his crew is exceptional.We both thankyou  David for the excellent job you have done for us.

My wife (Dee) and I have recently used the services of “Better Living Homes” (David Robbins) to carry out alterations to our home at Tumbulgum NSW. From day one David demonstrated himself to be a true professional of his trade. During the quoting process each tradesman evaluated his own reasonability so that David could deliver a complete and accurate estimate and it also gave us the chance to meet the team that would be employed on our project. These trades included, an engineer, Gyprocker, Asbestos remover, carpenters and electricians. David himself is not just a knowledgeable builder but a very good ideas man to bounce off any thoughts you may have or to overcome problems that arise along the way. Dee and I decided to go on a cruise while the project took place. David emailed us progress photos every couple of days and kept us informed and up to date. On our arrival back home from our holiday we were very pleased with the transformation to the kitchen lounge family room areas and the finishes. Dee and I both feel we honestly got very good value for the dollar using “Better Living Homes” to carry out our alterations and truly believe we have increased the resale value of our home. We have no hesitation in recommending David Robbins to carry out any house building work to the point that any future work we need done we will be calling on David and his team. I welcome any prospective customers of “Better Living Homes” to call me on my mobile 0400697614 If you want to chat further on our project.

Thank you David for a Job well done.

We have known Mr. David Robbins, principal of Better Living Homes for more than 25 years when he was involved in the building of our home. We have always appreciated his work as an excellent builder and tradesman who is consistently most reliable, honest, helpful and takes pride in all he does. Therefore we would never seek assistance from anyone else if matters of maintenance or construction were required - he has our total confidence.

His building company Better Living Homes aims for high ethical standards and environmentally sensitive solutions in construction and design. We commend he and his company Better Living Homes to you.

David at Better Living Homes has completed renovations on a number of properties on our RentRoll.  The work David has done has included ‘smaller’ repairs and entire overhauls of an old house. On each occasion that we have had dealings with David to date, our Property Management team has been very impressed with the manner in which he has approached his work.  As the ‘middle man’, it is important that we are aware of what is happening at a rental property & at all times we havefound David accommodating of this need & has ‘kept us in the loop’.

David has been most helpful when making recommendations or providing options for different undertakings & he has always kept us well informed of his progress as he has worked on each job site. Our team have always found David happy, friendly & easy to approach.   The landlords for whom David has completed works, have all been very satisfied with the end result. 

Based on our experience with Davids work to date, I would have no hesitation in recommending Better Living Homes to any owners who we manage an investment property for.

We purchased the property in Pottsville NSW nearly 5 years ago. Our house was built by David  Robbins of Better Living Homes, and we have been delighted with the quality of design and workmanship. Attention to detail was excellent, ensuring a  very comfortable and well built home. After sales follow up has also been commendable.

We would not hesitate to refer David to any future client, and will give verbal references happily, call on 0266763285, or write us an e-mail to dolmitch@bigpond.com.

We used David Robbins, T.A. Better Living Homes, to do renovations on the home we purchased in Terranora late 2015. Major works included removal of and installation of a new kitchen. Moving existing laundry and replacing with butlers pantry along with other works including removals of walls, tiling etc. These works were done over a period of about 3 months as we needed to move in after our previous house had sold. David set a timeline that was followed closely and allowed us to move in when required.


Throughout the course of the renovations communication was very good with David and he was always readily available to go through any concerns. We were given an accurate quote and had no rude shocks at the end of the job.


David also introduced ideas along the way which we had not considered, one of which was a gas strut window in our kitchen allowing uninterrupted light and full access to a servery area outside.


 All his subcontractors and carpenters work was always conducted with great professionalism and the result was a quality finish.


I would be pleased to recommend David and happy to speak with anybody interested further on work done on our house.
