The KB team services an area stretching from Donnybrook to Walpole, Boyup Brook to Nannup and all towns in between.

We are dedicated to excellence in construction and customer service as proven by the numerous industry awards presented to our family business in the past few decades.

Manjimup and it's surrounding towns are continuing to grow with more people than ever looking to build in the area.

However, many people, young and old, are being put off by what is perceived as an extraordinary long wait to move into their new homes.

Sam Karamfiles wishes to make it clear, if you build with him, you will not have to wait that long.

"There is a perception you have to wait up to two years to get a house built," Sam Said.

"We want to dispel that myth.

"Our team works together to ensure our jobs roll over very quickly"

Sam said through his own tradesmen and a loyal network of established sub-contractors you could be moving into your new home in no time.

"For a house built in town we can complete it in ten months,"he said.

This is possible because Karamfiles Builders has established relationships with sub-contractors and suppliers over it's 65-year history.

By using an in-house construction team consisting of carpenters, labourers and grano-workers they do not have to sub-contract many aspects of the building process.

Over the years, Sam has incorporated many procedures and products to enhance his skills and knowledge of the building trade and home design.

Karamfiles Builders has been recognised for its dedication to its craft over the past 18 years, having won multiple MBA & HIA awards.

This includes the South West Regional College of TAFE Employer/ Trainer of the Year Award 2006 & 2008, the 2006 Southwest Small Business Awards Entrepreneurship Award and the HIA-ANZ Excellence in Service Award 2005, 2006, 2007 and now again in 2008 for the fourth year running.
