Our expert team has been designing and building new homes, renovations and home extensions in the Blue Mountains, Penrith and surrounding areas since 1998.
Over this time, we’ve built a solid reputation and developed a deep understanding of the regulations involved in designing for bush fire prone areas and environmentally sensitive sites.
Woodford Homes has designed homes and extensions in many different styles on a range of blocks – from flat and open sites to rocky slopes.
No matter what kind of look and feel you want, or what kind of block you’re on, we work with you to create a design that ticks every box.
You can take a look at some of our innovative designs here.

When experience counts
One of the main benefits of working with Woodford Homes is that we’ve been working in the same area for over 20 years.
This means you can count on our local knowledge and know that our expert team is familiar with the perks and pitfalls of building on a whole range of sites – from rocky slopes, to flat open ground.
We’re well practiced at thinking innovatively to create stylish and unique new homes and extensions.
Of course, Workplace Health and Safety is also a vital element of our work.
What’s more, all our design decisions are centred on creating a structurally sound home that’s backed by our After Care Service – which includes a 6-year structural warranty.
We’ll guide you, step by step
When you choose Woodford Homes, we’ll guide you through the process of designing and building your new home or extension.
If you try to make decisions about every aspect of your new home or extension all at once you could end up feeling stressed and overwhelmed.
In the initial design phase, we suggest you just concentrate on the external features, colours and finishes. What’s more, we’ll make sure your design includes important features like fire-resistant decking and roofing materials that meet regulations.
Once your design is approved by Council, we’ll get your thoughts on interior fittings, finishes and colours and finalise what you need to meet the regulations for your site.
- You can never have too many ideas!
- Flick through magazines, be inspired by Pinterest.
- Think about the features you love in friends’ homes and the kinds of rooms you or your family want or need.
- Make an inspiration board – virtual or real.
- Sketch up your own plans – a simple outline is fine, as it’s up to us to interpret and refine your vision and do the technical work.
- Jot down the must haves and dream features – you never know what’s possible.

Your staff and contractors are your best asset, without them Woodford Homes wouldn't be where you are today.

T & M Holland - Wentworth Falls
Friendly staff, good quality finish
E. Jimenez & J. Marchant - Springwood
We feel very fortunate to find a building company that delivered our scope of work with such a breath of expertise, craftsmanship and consideration!
Rosemary & Will Deusien - Glenmore Park
Woodford Homes are professional and delivery quality work. I would not use any other builders as I know we will always get quality and excellent tradesmen. Allen and Lyn were wonderful to discuss anything.
Kathy & Stephen Watkins - Hazelbrook
The build was beyond our wildest dreams. Stunning!! Our next door neighbours are so impressed with Woodford Homes' quality and workmen'
Jenn & Tony Harris - Hazelbrook
From the initial discussions with Allen, and his assistance in planning our renovation, the whole experience has been seamless. All made easier with the knowledgeable staff and contractors. We would highly recommend Woodford Homes to anyone looking for a builder with integrity.
Janette & Paul Warton - Erskine Park
We are very happy to recommend Woodford Homes to anyone renovating or extending their existing home. We lived in our home during the addition and found the builders were very mindful and accommodating of our needs. They delivered us with a high quality addition to our home. Friends often comment that they don't recognise our house now as it looks like a new home.
Amy & Bob Barrett - Emu Plains
Woodford Homes did a great job with our renovations for a library, extended loungeroom and deck on our old home in the Blue Mountains. They reminded me of production companies in the Australian film industry in that they know how to use their resources to work personally, and creatively, with clients and at the same time finish on time and on budget.
I would strongly advise anyone who thinks they can ‘do it themselves’ to think about whether they want to spend 4 or 6 years of their life tied down to the uncertain boundaries of a building project, or contract wonderful builders like Woodford Homes who can work with you creatively, finding solutions to your desires, and complete the work within a couple of months instead of years.
A. Chandler - Hazelbrook
Woodford Homes worked with us to help create the extension that we had in mind. They made our vision a reality, and were able to do this in amongst our very busy young family. Thank you Woodford Homes.
A and K Phuntsok - Winmalee
We lived overseas during most of the building process. Allen and Lyn looked after every detail with attention and care. They made sure that all of our expectations were met to the highest possible standard. We would recommend Woodford Homes.
Shiree & Martin Woolnough
Woodford Homes met all of our expectations. They listened to what we wanted, the standard of work was excellent and finished on time.
Jenny Stevens and Simon Gray
Thank you very much for the great work you have done on our extension, you have made the process very easy, and we love the extra space. You have a great team of workers who have always been very helpful and professional.
K & B Rayner – Winmalee
We couldn’t be happier with the result of our renovation. The staff and contractors were a pleasure to deal with and any small problems that came up were dealt with without any fuss or bother. In many cases they went over and beyond what we expected. Highly recommended
C & G Stinson – Hazelbrook
