“The standard you step over, is the standard you set”- Company Director, Greg Wells

Custom Built Projects NSW

At Custom Built Projects NSW we go above and beyond to provide our clients with a tailor-made home of their dreams.

We pride ourselves on accurate quotes, clear communication and an eye for practical, functional and aesthetically pleasing outcomes. We believe this is what sets us apart from the rest.

Quality is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, skilful execution and attention to detail; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives.

Who We Are

Custom Built Projects NSW specialises in new home builds and renovations throughout the Port Stephens and Newcastle regions. We build to accommodate your current lifestyle, while taking into account your future needs.

Prior to becoming a licensed builder, Greg established two other successful businesses which are thriving today: 

Mates Rates Carpentry – offering the highest standards of timber craftsmanship on decks, pergolas, staircases, renovations, extensions, retaining walls, – in fact, on all timber-based projects large and small.

Nelson Bay Bathrooms – one of the region’s most respected renovation companies, working with architects to deliver HIA and MBA award-winning designs, fit-outs and finishes.

Founding Director Greg Wells brings both a strong design aesthetic and a practical understanding of the building industry. Greg oversees Custom Built projects directly, ensuring attention to detail and high quality across all aspects of the project.

Greg’s passion for helping bring his clients dreams to life, along with his precision in every stage of the building process, has led to Custom Built Projects NSW being recognised as one of the most sought-after building companies in the Port Stephens region.


As word about Greg’s dedication to craftsmanship spread and his business portfolio grew, Greg needed a new company structure that could grow with him. In 2014, Custom Built Projects NSW was created.

Based on the premise that to deliver a faultless project you need the best tradespeople on site, supported by the best project management and administrative team, Greg has ensured that he is surrounded by hardworking, reliable and responsible employees at all times, both on and off site. We pride ourselves on our craftsmanship, as well as our familiarity with exciting new products and materials. We back that up with careful estimates and straightforward, honest communication. Custom Built Projects is ready to work hand-in-hand with you to build the home of your dreams.

In Greg’s words:

“I have the dream of becoming the most sought-after builder in the Port Stephens & Newcastle region while working with the best materials and producing the highest quality work. I strive daily to offer an amazing work culture for my teams while developing and sustaining a faultless reputation.”

We are constantly aware of the obligation that comes with having your dream in our hands.

Rest assured, we take that responsibility personally.
