We create Homes with character and all the personal inclusions our clients desire

Character Living is a specialist building company based in North Fremantle that provides superior workmanship, personalised builds, a flexible mindset and customer service unlike other builders. We pride ourselves on taking any stress and hard work associated with building away from our clients, through a hands on approach and consultative relationship with the builder himself, Aaron Butson.

Perth Framed Home of the Year 2018

Being a true timber craftsman, Aaron's attention to detail and expertise allowed us to create a home others could not.

With a reputation for exceptional craftman-ship and service, Character Living has a long list of past clients who are not only thrilled with the quality of their homes but also with the experience of working with us. Ongoing word-of-mouth referrals from our clients are a testament to our passion for building.

We never lock our clients into selecting every item for their home right at the beginning because we believe the design can continuously evolve as the home comes to life.

We prefer our clients to make decisions on elements like paint colours, tiles and fixtures when they can see how each room looks and feels as it is built. It is our flexibility during construction that sets us apart from most other builders.

Character Living works closely with a local design and drafting company that shares our passion for unique homes. We will happily arrange a meeting with our designer, however our clients are more than welcome to supply existing plans or engage other architects or drafts people to design their homes.

We believe a client’s design choices are how they can integrate their own personal brand into the project.
