About Bullimore Homes
Please let me introduce myself, my name is Graham Bullimore, the owner of “Bullimore Homes”. I would like to provide some background information on my experience within the building industry.
I began in the building industry in 1978 as a bricklayer working alongside my father-in-law, eventually we started up our first building company called “J & G Construction” very prominent in the Southern Suburbs throughout the 1980″s until my father-in-law retired and I decided that I would further my experience working for a number of the larger builders in Adelaide.
Throughout my career in the industry, I gained experience working for Pioneer Homes as a Site Supervisor, looking after large unit sites both single and double storey. I have also worked for Henley Properties as Site Supervisor and then Construction Manager overseeing 4 other site supervisors all undertaking numerous constructions. Also Homestead in Adelaide, first as a Site Supervisor and then as a Construction Manager.
In 2006, he worked for a Canberra Based Company call PBS Homes as a Construction Manager supervising 2 other supervisors.
During my extensive experience I also completed a number of small projects and small commercial projects, a few of these were;
- Port Wakefield Church Hall
- Soldiers Memorial Wall in the Adelaide Hills
- Community Toilet Blocks in Aldinga
- The renovation project of 4 units for the Leukaemia Foundation utilising volunteer labour and some suppliers to keep the costs down.
As you will see by the testimonials I am able to offer you a more personal service than that offered by the larger building companies.
When building with “Bullimore Homes” you are dealing directly with me as the owner and my wife who handles the administrative side of the business.
We are not just builders but are also investors ourselves, having done a number of personal projects, such as;
- Subdividing blocks to on sell
- Spec Homes for resale
- Renovation projects for resale
We also own rental properties, so we understand what it is to take the step towards property investment.

Our Clients Have Trusted Us
In July 2016, we moved into our new Bullimore home in Gawler East. We are delighted with the home, its layout and finish. It has been a complex build, constructed from our own design and confronted with major rock issues along the way. As the designers, it was important to us to be intimately involved in the build process all the way along. Graham was accessible and flexible, adapting to unforeseen circumstances as they arose. The advantages of a ‘Cost Plus’ contract showed through for us. “Cost Plus’ is an open-book, totally transparent contract, where changes to the original can be implemented with the real cost or saving of that change being passed on to the owner – the word “Variations” does not enter a ‘Cost Plus’ contract.
The ‘Cost Plus’ contract gave us complete confidence that no corners were being cut and that the best Tradies were being used at all times. Tradesmen would comment to us that the previous work had been done to the highest standard, making their part of the process easier and better.
Graham is a genuine bloke and we always felt that we could trust his word. This was very important to us and resulted in us being so happy with the end result and confident to recommend Bullimore Homes to prospective house builders.
Rick and Mandy, Gawler East
We built with Graham a little over 15 months ago, on our block at Encounter Bay, Victor Harbor, we had tried unsuccessfully to engage a builder that was prepared to build our home to Lock-up for us as we wanted to complete the inside ourselves.After approaching a number of other builders in Adelaide Graham was recommended to us.Throughout the project they worked very closely with us to ensure that each stage met our requirements, nothing was too much trouble.We now have a beautiful home that we may one day retire too but in the meantime, it’s a Holiday Let. Our home is of a light weight construction and also 2 stories with a great view of Encounter Bay that we enjoy each time we stay. Graham never made us feel as if we were just a number, and his manner is calm and reassuring ensuring a stress-free build.

Bullimore Homes have recently rebuilt my home after a fire destroyed it 2 years ago, after a lengthy battle with the insurance company it was all systems go. As the previous home was an older style housing trust design I wanted to update its appearance, working closely with the owners of Bullimore Homes they came up with a redesign which was a more modern facade and added a carport and an Ensuite to the existing floor plan and enlarged the main bathroom and lounge area.
The result as you will see is great, it fresh/modern / with quality fittings and fixtures. The comments from the people in the town are all positive and the whole process from the planning and re -designing was so smooth after the trauma of the fire. I would definitely recommend the builder to anyone wishing to build or renovate an existing home. They are professional in their approach but very customer focused and made what could have been a very stressful time turn out to be a positive experience.
Graham made the most daunting task of building our home easy. We built with the intention to stay for a very long time, and the craftsmanship of the home reflects this. They were there on hand for us from the first ideas scratched out on paper, right through the entire building process. We met with them on site during several stages of the construction so they could show us any points that needed addressing that we hadn’t thought of, to ensure we got exactly what we were after. From brick suggestions to tiles and colour choices for the feature walls, they were always helpful and professional in their manner and employed extremely skilled contractors to carry out the work to perfection. The craftsmanship is second to none. With the building process a positive experience for us, we would highly recommend them, and should we find the need to build again, we would go to them first.
