About Us

Skilled and capable people with experience and integrity, Damien Arundel and his team have years of experience in working on new homes, extensions, renovations and other carpentry projects. As builders of quality homes we offer a range of construction services to suit almost any project – from development of plans to obtaining a permit to a full scale new home build.

At Barking Dog Builders, you will deal direct with your builder, and not a sales person and we build the home you want, not a standard floor plan that has been modified. You will not have to compromise and while our experienced team will show you options and make recommendations, you will make all of your own choices. As a smaller team, we will communicate with you more often and we will complete your build faster – for less.

If you’re planning on building, renovating or extending our offer to you is:

- Your own custom design
– Genuine personal service from builders, not sales people
– Save time and money by working with a smaller more focussed team and a fixed price contract with no surprises

Our Work

“Vin and I would like to thank both you and Chris for the excellent work you (and the team) did on our renovation- it was everything and more than we imagined. Your attention to detail, support, and input above and beyond the role as builders really made what could have been a very stressful time go smoothly and quickly. We also appreciate your 100% commitment to the timeline. We know this must have been difficult at times and put pressure on you and your families, particularly on you and your wife with the birth of your daughter. So please accept our deepest thanks to you both for our wonderful new home and your amazing efforts in bringing our dream to life”

Helen and Vin

Damien, thank you for your honesty, commitment and enthusiasm to completing the project ahead of time and importantly for the customer ensuring extra cost were kept to a minimum. On a personal note, I would like to thank the team of Barking Dog Builders, who were always polite and friendly, I felt I was always welcome on site. I am very happy to recommend Barking Dog Builders to anyone undertaking the construction of a new home, and would be happy to answer any further enquiry from any potential customers.

- David, Bentleigh Vic

The decision to renovate our home was a lengthy process. We had come across several builders that either didn’t seem to care or couldn’t provide us with timely responses… Fortunately we happened to stumble across Damien’s work whilst he was renovating a home across the road from where my brother lived. The works to our home are of a high standard and we are very happy with its completion. We have no hesitation in recommending Damien – Barking Dog Builders – to anyone planning to renovate or build.

Sean and Amanda, Parkdale VIC

Professional, timely and courteous builder. We also appreciated that you tidied as you went which minimised any inconvenience to our young family. Many thanks and we would have no hesitation in recommending you to friends and family

Builder delivered on time and was easy to talk to about the job. The house was finished to a very high standard and I am very happy with the result

- Brendan, new home, Mildura VIC

We were very impressed with the speed and quality of our pantry installation.  We went from a big blank wall to pantry within a day which cured our desperate need for kitchen storage
