Glenway Homes is a family business that has been building high-quality, luxurious custom homes since 1968. We take pride in all of our builds and love working closely with our clients to bring their visions to life.
Your local builder
We are often known as ‘the local builder’ as we build many homes in our local area of Floreat and City Beach. However we work with clients all over Perth ensuring they get their dream home in their dream location.
We oversee every build
Our director, John Woodford, personally oversees every project we build, ensuring the highest quality outcomes and also no surprises for clients. We believe quality craftsmanship, attention to detail and a strong focus on customer service are the things that matter most when it comes to a home build. You become part of our family when you build with us.
Our design process
Our design process has been developed and refined over the years. Today it exists as the perfect combination between your personal vision for your home, and our expertise in maximizing your site’s benefits. We are always thrilled by the amazing ideas our clients bring to the table and love enhancing them further with our knowledge.
Together we always end up with something luxurious, considered, excitingly aesthetic, and energy efficient, to serve as the backdrop for your future memories.
Part of a wider co-operative
Glenway Homes is a member of Wesbuilders Co-ooperative which enables us to source competitive prices for materials with savings passed onto clients. The co-operative works with leading suppliers all over Australia and supports each other to strengthen the building industry in Perth.

Glenway homes is well known for our approach to energy efficiency in design. We do this through maximizing the benefits of site-specific home orientation, the use of thermal mass, natural ventilation and climate control.
Our homes have won numerous awards for Excellence in Energy Efficiency and we always endeavor to incorporate these features in every home we build.
"A great and stress-free experience"
“We decided to build with Glenway Homes, as they were a smaller company with a strong reputation for designing high quality homes within budget. They worked with reliable, long-term tradesmen, who had a great understanding of the project complexities, and the build was closely supervised at every stage, resulting in a home we're very happy with.”Mosman Park
“Glenway really took the time to listen and understand exactly what we wanted and were patient when helping us to explore and decide on all the finer details. We knew we could rely on any promises they made and are very pleased with how everything turned out.”Floreat
“Glenway was recommended to us, since we were searching for a company that offered flexible, tailored services within our budget. The entire planning and building process was smooth, and the MD John Woodford was a joy to deal with. We were kept in the loop throughout the project, and any challenges were quickly resolved.”Cottelsoe
“We wanted a smaller company that offered personalised services and innovative design ideas, had a history of great workmanship, and most importantly, were responsive to our family’s needs. That’s exactly the experience we had with Glenway, who made sure we were closely involved at every stage of the project whilst constantly presenting us with new ideas.”Shenton Park
“We were aware how stressful the building process can be, and trusted that Glenway would deliver exactly what we wanted, whilst minimizing the stress. Our expectations were exceeded, and it felt very much like a team project, in which nothing was considered ‘too hard’, and alterations were made until we were completely satisfied with every aspect of the build.”Subiaco
“Going into the build we knew we wanted a smaller builder, who we could work closely with from start to completion. Glenway proved to be exactly what we were looking for. Owner John Woodford was always available, helpful, and willing to discuss our options so there were never any unwanted surprises, and any faults were corrected immediately. A great and stress-free experience.”Dalkeith
“From the first meeting with John, he was friendly, knowledgeable, and quick to offer solutions whenever we encounter a challenge. In fact, the entire team (including tradesmen) were supportive throughout the process, listened to what we wanted and were committed to helping us get there.”Floreat
“Glenway had built a nearby home that we thought had a great design and seemed suitable to our needs, which led us to working with them for our own home. We were highly impressed with the professional yet personalises service we received, plus the quality workmanship from subcontractors. When any difficulties or queries arose, Glenway was always willing to deal with our concerns in a timely manner. We really couldn’t have asked for a better experience.”Claremont
“Glenway’s reputation as quality builder, and my friendship with John Woodford made working with them an easy decision. Their small size made for a unique and personalised experience, and everyone we spoke with knew their job well. The tradesman genuinely cared about the quality of their work, and everyone on the team was friendly and professional – always making a point to collaborate with us before going ahead with anything.”Floreat
“Selecting Glenway homes to renovate our home was one of the best decisions we have made. We can not think of a single thing with the build that we would have done differently. A great team, quality tradesman, who helped make the experience enjoyable for us. Thank you Glenway Homes.”Karrinyup
