Our Clients

Alexandria – Matthew Pullinger Architect

Doug McDonald and MacBuilt Homes helped us realise our family’s dream. Where most builders just see a project, Doug was different. His passion for his work, his commitment to every detail, and his willingness to share our dream makes him very different. We are forever grateful for the part that MacBuilt Homes has played in creating our home. Doug’s award success is completely deserved.


Ryde – Elizabeth and Ryan

Doug at MacBuilt Homes did an outstanding job building our new home. The workmanship and attention to detail throughout the build was impeccable.


We didn’t want just another project home; rather we wanted a home that was suited to our specific needs and lifestyle. Doug’s experience and attention to detail created a unique home for us using our vision and our design.


With the added complexities of our steeply sloped site, Doug was happy to remain flexible, adapting to our needs at a reasonable cost. He was easily able to personalise and enhance our design when changes to the initial plan were required.


We are extremely pleased and look forward to enjoying our new home for many years to come.

North Ryde – Donna and Phil

Quality workmanship, clear, simple communication and a professional outfit – that’s our experience with Doug and Louise McDonald from MacBuilt Homes Pty Ltd.


Doug and his team did a terrific job, from our first consultation with Doug to completion. We were kept in the loop the whole way long, the workmanship was fantastic and there were very adaptable to changing requirements throughout the job to ensure the best outcome.


We were particularly impressed with his team of tradesmen and how all work was coordinated for a hassle free renovation experience. I couldn’t recommend them more highly – if you want a quality job choose, “MacBuilt Homes Pty Ltd”.

Leichhardt – Mark & Carolyn

Doug McDonald of MacBuilt Homes, completed new first floor extension to existing dwelling.


On meeting Doug I found him to be professional business like in all his dealings and matters related to contractual and regulatory obligations. He listened to my plans and discussed options for improvements. His quote was clear, comprehensive and detailed he entered into the signing of a contract with the same level of professionalism.


Doug stayed on task diligently and ensured safety and cleanliness were priorities during the demolition phase. The rest of the building phase went without incident and completion was within the agreed time frame. At all times Doug was available.


Doug and his contractors were quiet and efficient in their working practice. There was no undue shouting or use of bad language which impressed by wife and I. The level of finish was of an extremely high grade. The architect was so impressed with the level of work that he intends on suggesting Doug for prospective jobs.


We, without hesitation recommend Doug and MacBuilt Homes and would engage them again without reservation.

Paul Berkemeier – Architect

We were the architects for projects at Glebe and North Sydney where were coordinated and built by Doug McDonald of MacBuilt Homes. Both projects involved extensive alterations and additions to existing homes.


Doug was excellent to work with; he has a good knowledge of construction methods and detail and is very thorough and fair in his approach. His management and on-site supervision were diligent at all times.


We would be very pleased to work with Doug again in the future on more projects of considerably greater size and value which I am sure that they can handle very effectively.

Steve Kennedy – Architect

MacBuilt Homes, under the directorship of Doug McDonald, were the builders of three projects designed by Kennedy Associates.


All projects were undertaken on tight inner urban sites where there were a number of complex site issues to be resolved, as well as the actual construction work itself.


The projects proceeded successfully, with minimal delay or variations, and the build product was of a very high standard. The clients were entirely satisfied with the professionalism, care and competence of the team and in particular Doug, who has shown himself to be a very capable project administrator, as well as a high quality builder.


Kennedy Associates have recommended Doug to a number of other architects. We would be pleased to work with them again.
