We can’t thank the BLH team enough for our dream home in Robe. Thank you for the ideas, no stress, and the smooth transition.”

Experts in our field and in our region

We aspire to build the best new and custom homes in the Limestone Coast and western Victoria. We keep up with the latest trends in design and interiors, and strive for quality, efficiency, flexibility, and affordability so your experience will be stress-free, rewarding, and enjoyable.


Decades of experience and dedicated to customer service

Starting out in the building industry in 1972, Jim Doody established Blue Lake Homes in Mt Gambier in 1990. With the business now in its second generation, gone are the days when homes were one-size-fits-all. We pride ourselves on offering a broad range of affordable, customisable designs with quality finishes. And our dedication to customer service doesn’t end when your build does either. We pride ourselves on our outstanding after-sales service too.


Elliott and Jacinta Jones have been managing Blue Lake Homes now for over 13 years. Together with Bronwyn, Mel, Jess and the rest of the team, they work hard to ensure the construction of your home is seamless, efficient, and fuss-free.

Elliott Jones, Director

Elliott, his English sense of humour aside, is a planning pro who will ensure your build stays on schedule, goes according to plan, and is effortless every step of the way. He has a wealth of building knowledge up his sleeve and is a big believer in coming up with the best way of doing something, whether it’s been done that way before or not!
Elliott’s strong community focus has seen him ride from Melbourne to Adelaide as part of a Leukaemia Foundation fundraiser, strip off for a ‘Full Monty’ evening to raise funds for local mental health services, and volunteer with our local basketball team, The Pioneers.

Jacinta Jones, General Manager/Design Consultant

After gaining invaluable experience working in a variety of industries, Jacinta returned to Blue Lake Homes—her family business—bringing a world of knowledge and innovation with her.

From the moment you walk through our door until you get your keys and are walking through your own, you’ll find working with Jacinta to be an exceptional and enjoyable experience. Just like her father, her drive and determination to deliver exceptional service to every customer is second to none.

Jacinta loves getting involved with the local community. Among other things, she’s a member of the Pioneers Basketball Club and is the Chairperson of the Limestone Coast Women in Business and Regional Development Board.

Bronwyn McCallum, New Home Consultant

With over 25 years’ experience with Blue Lake Homes in a variety of roles, Bronwyn has the knowledge of construction and design to make her an unparalleled resource when it comes to constructing your home. She’ll be your go-to person for any questions you have during the pre-construction phase, and will help you ensure your dream home becomes a reality.

When she’s not talking all things building, you’ll probably find this born and bred Mount Gambier local floating around the East Gambier Netball Club. She’s been the Club President for the last 14 years and was their secretary for eight years before that.

 Mel Abbott, Administration/Support

Mel is absolutely dedicated to all things administration when it comes to your new home. From preparing your council and finance approvals to keeping the lines of communication completely open with you throughout the process, Mel makes sure the transition between the pre-construction and construction phases of your build is absolutely seamless.

A Limestone Coast local (she grew up in Millicent), Mel loves dancing (she used to teach!), her Border Collie X Kelpie Clio, and absolutely everything to do with Christmas.

The Carpentry Team

Lead by Marcus, our team of carpenters work closely with Elliott & Hannah to construct your dream home. Our carpenters take great pride in their attention to detail and share our passion for building quality homes.

As a company we are passionate about growing the number of qualified carpenters we have in our community and regularly have apprentices as part of our team.


We found the Blue Lake Homes team to be a friendly, honest, and professional group. We valued their knowledge and expert advice. Our experience with all of the staff at BLH surpassed all of our expectations.”
