NJR Homes is a Canberra based company servicing the ACT region focusing on custom new homes, renovations, extensions and knock-down rebuilds. Whether it be a new home designed to include the ideas you have, or a renovation /extension to breathe new life into your existing home, NJR Homes can work with you to make your home what you want it to be!

We are operated by Managing Director Nick Rowe who is a qualified carpenter with over 15 years of residential building experience. Having hands on experience in the building industry means a strong focus is placed on maintaining high standards of craftsmanship and ensuring that all relevant regulations are met.

We use local trades and suppliers as this not only allow us to have more control over the quality of work we produce, but it also helps to support other businesses in the community.

Once you have signed up with NJR Homes you won’t be passed to project/site or administration managers – you will deal directly with Nick who will guide you step by step through the building process and collaborate with you to ensure that the final product is what you have been dreaming of.


NJR Homes and Nick Rowe (the owner and principal) in particular did a brilliant job in building our home. Nick was with us for the whole journey from early conception and design through to completion. He focused on the details while never talking his eye off the main end game – which was the creation of a beautiful house for us to live in as our dream home. He was respectful and responsive, and always provided frank and valued advice, all along the way. He made us feel like he was building his own home, and putting all the care and attention into the job that that would entail.  He seemed to be permanently on-site! He managed his workforce, contractors and suppliers with respect and courtesy, while holding people to account when appropriate. The house is beautifully finished and blends into the streetscape and against the nature reserve at its rear in an eye-pleasing way. It is also very functional, with well-constructed living, sleeping and entertainment spaces. NJR Homes is entitled to consider this home to be a real showcase in its portfolio, and we consider it to be an excellent candidate for an award. We would be delighted to commend NJR Homes to future customers.

We first met Nick during the construction phase of our new 4 bedroom townhouse that we eventually purchased from him at NJR Homes.
We immediately warmed to Nick as his professionalism shines through from the moment we met him.
He was and continues to be able to answer all our questions and anticipates our needs to a very high standard.
Nick focuses on the details and values customer satisfaction and feedback very high on his list of priorities.
We have now moved into our townhouse and he continues to assist in the best possible way.
I would have no hesitation recommending Nick and the team at NJR homes should they be looking for a quality builder who focuses as much on the people element as the construction element.

We are super impressed with NJR homes and their service,product and client engagement process.
Nick was brilliant: helpful, approachable, accomodating, easy going and extremely professional. The whole process was smooth from the beginning and communication was exceptional, prompt and the information provided was accurate and up to date. Any concerns of ours were taken seriously and dealt with imediately.
We will confidently recomend NJR homes and call on them again should we need any of their services in future.

We are absolutely thrilled with our completed extensions. As this was our first time having extensions, we were very nervous about what to expect. Nick was very professional and understanding in all aspects of our renovation. He was very considerate of our needs and those of our children during the entire process. His team worked very well together and were always polite and punctual. Nick is very approachable and always listened to our ideas and thoughts. He communicated with us on a regular basis and kept us informed of any changes to the schedule. Nick has an excellent eye for detail and has high standards which are reflected in the final result. Thank you Nick and your team for helping us realise our dream of having a beautiful house!

– Ian and Megan

Before, during and after the construction of our home Nick displayed the values needed of a great builder: honesty, integrity, transparency and a constant desire to deliver high quality.

I would trust Nick without question to turn my plans into reality again and again, as without his guidance we would not have been able to get through the challenges of building our own home, and now the prospect of building more houses is far less daunting. We are lucky that we found Nick, and we look forward to building more homes with him in the future.
