About us


LB Building is a family owned custom home building company based in Ocean Grove.

Since 2011 we have firmly established a reputation for quality craftmanship, creative solutions and strong relationships with our clients. Our team is handpicked and local so that we can guarantee to you that our guys and girls will be respectful, the best in the industry and a fair price.

Take a walk around our sites and you’ll find a mixture of old and new. The most experienced of our carpenters will be completing detailed fine carpentery work, whist an apprentice or work experience student will be sweeping up or unpacking deliveries.

We love giving back to our community and so we support St Ignatius College Geelong by providing work experience opportunities for VCAL students, and the local TAFE where we provide apprentice opportunities for local carpenters.


Meet Luke

Luke is the Director and he stands for complete attention to detail and a good old fashioned country service. He’s a second generation Builder, apprenticed to his Father as a carpenter at the age of 17 and honing his skills in Europe, Canada and Melbourne. Luke went on to study and complete his Builder’s certification in 2010 and has steadily increased his business and project management skills. He is a Passivhaus certified Builder, HIA GreenSmart Builder, member of the Association of Professional Builders and Constructor (estimating software) client.

For Luke construction is not an industry or a way to make a living, but it’s his passion and way of life. He loves the pride he feels when he steps back and hands the keys over to a client, the banter and energy of a construction site, and the precision required to handcraft raw timber into a custom home. When he’s not immersed in a project you’ll find him surfing, camping, free-diving and fishing with his family.
