Rob Prefers Building Custom Homes in Perth

Rob gets most of his pleasure building custom homes for families.

We have been fortunate enough to have had some tremendous clients and tremendous briefs, from modest family homes to luxury designer homes presenting construction and detailing challenges.

We are constantly looking at new ways of doing things, new materials and engaging with new trades, suppliers and service providers, building relationships with people that ultimately will benefit you and your new home.

While our primary focus is on new homes, we delight in unlocking the potential in existing dwellings. We work closely with architectural and structural designers to find ways of transforming your existing home into a more modern, more functional place with more value for you and your lifestyle.

“Ears” are the tools of my trade.

— Rob Hyde

After months of research we appointed Portrait Custom Homes to build our new family home in Applecross. From the start Rob had a very competitive, open book approach to pricing and an exemplary work ethic in keeping the job on track. Rob’s sound technical knowledge and open communication have made dealing with Portrait Custom Homes a pleasure.

We engaged Portrait Custom Homes to build our new home in Applecross. Owner, Rob Hyde has been extremely thorough in all aspects of the build, patient with our many changes, nothing has been too much trouble and he has personally supervised the works. We will be moving in soon, and ahead of schedule! We can highly recommend Rob Hyde and his team.

Vanessa, Applecross

We met with and got quotes from a few builders recommended to us by our architect. At our first meeting with Rob Hyde, we immediately felt comfortable working with him – he was thorough, knowledgeable and transparent. We can only say that he has a great team of people, trades and suppliers that he works with. The quality of finish is outstanding and our building experience could not have been better.
