DJ Homes is a truly family owned and operated Canberra building company. Starting off in the early 1980’s as David Jones Homes, David along with wife Franca built a business through some tough times through the late 80’s and early 90’s. The development at Jerrabomberra was where where the business made a name for itself in the local market and in 2001 it became DJ Homes. David and Franca ran the business and did significant amounts of work right throughout Canberra, most notably at Eastern Valley Rise in Tuggeranong and different suburbs in the ever growing Gungahlin. In this time DJ Homes have become specialists in rural residential work and have done work right across the surrounding regions including work in Bungendore, Carwoola and Murrumbateman to name a few.
In 2013, son Grant moved into the business to take over the day to day running of the business. In this time DJ Homes has gone through some growth that coincides with the growth of the new development at Googong. While Googong has been a major focus for our business over the last period of time we also continue to build homes for clients right across the region with projects including knockdown rebuilds and homes on Mr Fluffy blocks in Canberra, new homes in the Molonglo Valley suburbs including Denman Prospect, extension and multi-residential work in Queanbeyan as well as current and upcoming work in new developments at Bungendore, Gungahlin and Murrumbateman.
