The Pool House

We wanted to build a refined but robust home, bringing together old and new. It needed to sit well amongst the old South Canberra red brick houses and meet our needs as a busy family. We’re delighted with the result and are finding the home a real sanctuary in which to enjoy time together and relax. We love the high ceilings, big windows and the tranquil master suite. The children are loving their play space. We’re looking forward to enjoying the wood fireplace as the weather cools.

Our build, including the complex landscape construction, required many custom solutions. Future Building had the creativity and skill to ensure an excellent finish, inside and out. They brought real craftsmanship to every element of the project and were a pleasure to work with from design through construction. 

The Cantilever House

We wanted a modern interesting house that would accommodate a growing family and be a place to host family and friends. Future Building, SOS Architects and Studio & You realised this vision. We just love cooking in our bright, beautiful and functional kitchen, hanging out in our open living area, cozying up in our parents’ retreat, and sneaking into our secret powder room.   

From the moment we met Brenton we knew we had found a builder with the energy and conviction to bring our ambitious know down rebuild to life. His enthusiasm and drive is infectious and never waned throughout the process. No architectural detail was too hard and at each turn Brenton and the Future Building team worked tirelessly to maximise and show off every design element of the house.

Brenton’s communication was top notch. He would come to us early with decision points or issues. He was always armed with an array of options and a clear recommendation.

The whole Future Building team were amazing to work with, sharing Brenton’s passion for the project and incredible craftsmanship. Their ability to fabricate custom elements to deliver on our design was invaluable.

Future Building were able to deliver on our design’s ambitious focus on textures and materials. The stunning burnished floor, the recycled brick, the timber details, the precision tiling and the use of custom steel elements, create amazing interest and beauty.

We have no hesitation in recommending Future Building. They are absolute stars!


Brenton’s commitment to the project from the start. The attention to the little details. The whole on-site crew seemed really committed to doing their best and all the different service providers knew Brenton well and respected him. Communication is the most important thing and that was always really good.

Our favourite part was seeing all the different selections going into the house. The regular photos and updates via the Buildertrend app really helped us feel confident everything was on track.

One great part was Future Building Preliminary process. We appreciated Brenton’s patience with our slow decision-making and his advice to bring Studio and You in to help finalise all the selections, so we had a really accurate picture of the costs. It was worth all the work up front to ensure the build was smooth, even though it was a lot to work through as a novice home renovator.

Working with Brenton and the Future Building team felt like a genuine partnership, with both sides equally committed to an outcome that was high quality and finished with attention to the little details. CA lot of effort went into good communication and any issues arising were quickly identified and addressed.


Thank you Future Building. You have handed me the keys to the most beautiful home. I cant quite believe it is mine. Every moment of the planning, pricing, problem solving, contracts, build and hand over was so incredibly easy and stress free. There was not a moment of doubt or worry as I knew I was in the best hands. The workmanship is exceptional. Your trades were always lovely, clean and professional. Your communication was what impressed me the most. At any time of the build I knew exactly what was happening, where the budget was at and what was up next. Thank you for changing my life with this incredible home, I could not have done it without Future Building.


Future Building were Friendly and professional throughout the whole build. “You guys were fab”! Just loved working with friendly, honest, reliable people who made it all seem fun and exciting. Totally trusted you and felt like we were in safe hands. Our favourite part was Watching the magic happen! Just seeing it build – all the decisions and planning had happened so this wasn’t stressful, just exciting. The updates we received through BuilderTrend was so good, lots of photos during the build. We would absolutely recommend Future Building.


“We cannot speak more highly of our experience partnering with the Future Building team for the renovation and extension of our home in Deakin. From the very first meeting, Brenton communicated closely with us throughout the journey, going above and beyond to understand and realise our vision of creating a fresh and functional home for modern family living, whilst sitting comfortably in the setting of an established suburb. Ultimately, the Future Building team delivered an amazing home which far exceeded our expectations. 

 The passion, skill and attention to detail of the Future Building team and their subbies is evident in the quality workmanship throughout our house.  We particularly appreciated that our vision to preserve and honour the bones of the home was so enthusiastically embraced – a number of the stunning features throughout the house reuse or repurpose materials salvaged along the way. The result is a wonderful balance of form and function which effortlessly accommodates our large, growing family.

Beyond what the eye can see, Brenton’s focus on getting to know us and understanding how we as a family sought to engage with our space was next level – it meant when the inevitable challenges did arise, he was able to present us with options that were considerate not only of budget and time, but prioritised delivering the experience we wanted from our new home. In these cases, Brenton communicated in a clear and timely manner, ensuring we understood and agreed to any variations, and working closely with us to minimise overall project time and budget impact.

It was a pleasure working with Brenton and his team.  The kids looked forward to the boys arriving each morning, and as our project wrapped up even our neighbours commented that they would miss the ‘friendly faces and cheerful banter’ they had come to enjoy!!

Should we happen to find ourselves embarking on another building project, we will certainly be seeking to partner with Future Building once again.”
