The Smiles That Say It All

We have helped countless families like yours to realise their dreams

Hear firsthand why so many Bendigo families trust us to design and build their dream homes.

“From originally being quite stressful with the thought of building our forever home, the process was made so seamless and easy, the communication was always constant and we always knew what was happening and when.

Kate, Todd and the whole team were a pleasure to work with, they provided advice along the way and anything we wanted to change or adjust within the build was so easy as they made sure that it was what we wanted!

We can’t thank you enough for providing us our dream home and if we change our mind and what to build another dream home we will be knocking on your door to do it all over again!

Couldn’t recommend TNB highly enough!”

Josh & Abbey

Custom Design

“My new home is perfect 😍 It was my dream and TNB made it come true. I cannot fault the care, personalised service and wonderful team that made it happen.

From the very beginning I was listened to and heard. My plans were exactly as discussed and on budget. The quality of the finishes are exceptional and I am very proud to tell everyone who walks into my home that it is a Todd Newman home.

James, Todd & Kate…. Thank-you. You’ve created a home for my beautiful children.”


Custom Design

“A very big thank you to Todd, Kate, James & Team. We have built two houses, one a set plan, one a custom design, with Todd Newman Builders and each build process was professional and effortless.

Dealing with James as project manager has been a point of difference, the continuity, professionalism and communication were important elements for us, and made the process exceptionally easy and hassle free.

Transparency was always a priority, and communication on progress and site visits were always timely and an enjoyable process. Todd and Kate’s whole team were an absolute pleasure to work with and we would happily build with them again in the future.

We are so happy with both home builds and hopefully have this opportunity to work with Todd, Kate, James and Team again. Thank you for making this journey as stress free as possible and we are fortunate to have found Todd Newman as a builder.”

Tara & Blair

Custom Design

“We found our custom build with TNB to be an absolute pleasure, everything was taken care of and nothing was too much trouble.

James was a delight and made sure that everything was above and beyond the standard we expected. Their suggestions were highly valued and included things we hadn’t even thought about.

We cannot recommend TNB highly enough for anyone wishing to build.”

Bryan & Alison

Custom Design

“As a design and construct client of a custom new home, I felt very comfortable with the design process and the level of input I was afforded, This allowed me to achieve my specific and unique design outcome for the home.

I was provided with excellent customer service throughout the entire process, from Glenn’s professional and efficient management to Jake’s attention to detail and very high level of workmanship.

Kate and the office staff were very accommodating and lovely to deal with. I speak highly of my experience with the Todd Newman Builders Team.”


Custom Design

“I have this to say about Todd Newman Master Builder: I have been a builder myself in the Bendigo area for 58 years (now retired) and Todd and his highly qualified staff, together with his expert subcontractors, have just built me a beautiful home in Strathfieldsaye and I am very happy with the result.

The last 2 years have been a very difficult time for all builders and Todd handled the situation very well, he told me my house would be completed by the end of last November. He finished it within a week of this date. I would highly recommend Todd to anyone considering building or renovating a home.

He also built a home for my Sister about 4 years ago and they were very happy with him also.”
