About Stroud Homes Melbourne North

Meet your builder – David Kirby

David has been building in Melbourne’s northern suburbs for over 15 years. Starting in the family garage with his father, he found himself working in carpentry and eventually managing his own building company for several years.

Not only is David keen to build quality homes, he brings with him a broad range of experience in the building game.From insurance work and repairs, to extensions, renovations, building granny flats, decks, pergolas, new custom homes, and a tried and tested list of trusted contractors he has worked with for years.

Why Stroud Homes?


With 15 years of building experience behind him, David joined the Stroud team because the idea of being able to build good quality homes at honest prices with no surprises meant he could feel comfortable selling homes to people in all walks of life.

Not feeling like a natural salesman, David saw in Stroud Homes a company that provides innovative home designs and quality builds – all things he could recommend and stand behind with pride as a builder.

Land availability in Melbourne North

Melbourne North is one of the largest growth corridors in Melbourne for the next twenty years. As land prices closer to Melbourne get higher, the value for land in the area is too good to overlook, with many new estates popping up.

The Early Years

You’ll often find people in the building industry who come from a family of carpenters.

“My father was a butcher as he had to leave school at 13 to help in the family shop, however, he always wanted to be a carpenter,” David says.

“When I was very young we spent a lot of time together in the garage building out of timber, things like outdoor table and chairs, building around the house; sheds, garage pergola etc.”

He would often speak about his dream of building homes together with David one day.

Like most young people, David got distracted with cars and other things for a number of years before chance brought him back to the building industry.

“I fell into a temporary job helping a friend in his building company for a week or two, this leads to months, then years.

“I found my love for building again in this, so I commenced training and pursued my registration.”

Once he became a registered builder, David branched out on his own, building granny flats and any building work he could complete himself or with his group of contractors, most of whom still work for him today.

“Over the years I’ve done all aspects of work in the building game; insurance work, repairs, extensions, renovations, decks, pergolas and new custom homes.

“Unfortunately, when my father retired he was not in shape to work with me, but he was always very interested in my work.”
