We’ve Been Building For Over 10 Years

Perth custom home builder
Elaborate Design Homes is an award-winning builder which prides itself on exceptional customer service to deliver their clients a product of superior standard, quality and design.

Managing Directors, Bernie and Sandra Cronyn, come from diverse professional backgrounds; a dynamic combination which allows them to mesh their competencies into a well-run and enjoyable business, which permeates every aspect of their builds.

Bernie has a long history of experience in the building industry, initially as a wall and floor tiler specialising in marble and stone. He obtained his building licence in 2009, and is a hands-on builder from the start to finish of every project. He loves being on-site getting his hands dirty!

Sandra has a background in accounting, as well as being qualified in residential drafting. She worked as a draftsperson and shire liaison for two years to gain industry experience during the early years of Elaborate Design Homes, and is a major part of running the daily activities of the business from bookkeeping, compliance, marketing, shire & client liaison.


New Homes and Renovations

We have built dream homes for clients on a budget and first home buyers, to grand 3-storey designs.

Be it a renovation to revitalise a tired home or a large extension, Elaborate Design Homes has the experience and passion to deliver an exceptional finish.

Client Testimonials

Elaborate Design Homes review
“‘I’m all about solutions.’ Any time there was a problem in our renovation, this was Bernie’s catch-phrase, and renovating a character home comes with a fair few unexpected problems. From council applications and engineering to the installation of appliances, Bernie was able to solve every problem and ensure each was finished to a very high standard. All the work undertaken has been completed to a standard beyond our expectations. We can truly say we are extremely happy with the quality of the work and, even better, the process. Bernie ensured his team was thorough, reliable and that their productivity and attention to detail was excellent. Long after the tradies had left, Bernie was following up behind them making sure we were happy, but even more satisfying for a client to see, Bernie would make sure the work met his exacting standards. This being our third major renovation, we thought we knew how builders and tradesmen operate but we didn’t expect Bernie’s meticulous approach to all of his work from consultation to completion; a true gentleman with a sincere passion for his work and always respectful of his clients’ needs. We cannot recommend Elaborate Design Homes highly enough. We are very grateful for their excellent work and our beautiful home.”

Elaborate Design Homes review
“I was very satisfied with the service Elaborate provided. We had 2 bathrooms and a kitchen fully renovated whilst we remained living in the house. Bernie and his gang were polite, considerate and tidy. Bernie was also punctual and kept me informed and, most importantly, listened. We were pleased with the quality of the work. Any small problems post completion were attended to immediately. The best recommendation is that I would use them again.”


Elaborate Design Homes review
“Working with Bernie and Sandra from Elaborate Design Homes on two major residential projects has been a wonderful experience. It is so easy as I can trust them to do a professional and refined job each time. Bernie and his team pay attention to detail, have a fantastic work ethic, are so easy to get along with, and are proactive in solving any problem on site. I have no hesitation in highly recommending Bernie and Sandra and their team.”
