About Todd:
Frustrated with the standard of building in Australia, Todd set out to raise the industry- wide bar by embracing Passive House principles, radical transparency and clear communication. He believes that when we know better, we must do better, and his thirst for knowledge and knowledge-sharing means his clients can always expect the best.

Building a house doesn’t need to be stressful or overwhelming… no, really! It’s an exciting time in your life and likely one you’ve dreamt of (and saved up for) for many years. That’s why Todd’s determined to create an experience that’s truly enjoyable for everyone alike – clients, trades, architects, neighbours, and even the folks at Council. To Todd, we’re all part of the same team, and we should work as such.

To make you feel as empowered as possible, Todd offers transparent pricing, schedules weekly site meetings to discuss the latest updates and decisions, and always shares his favourite episodes of the Undercover Architect podcast.

We’re a proud Certified Passive House Tradesperson & member of the Master Builders Association serving the Illawarra and Southern Highlands.

Builders who are “PAC Process Trained” are free to state that they have completed the PAC Challenge Course and associated PAC PROCESS training, but do not represent that they or their business have the endorsement of Live Life Build.

If you are a homeowner or designer / architect, please ensure you do your own, thorough due diligence on any builder prior to commissioning them for the PAC Process, or any other services.

The PAC Process by Live Life Build is the exemplary model of builder-homeowner-designer partnership and collaboration. When the builder is Paid As a Consultant during the design phase to provide input on cost and buildability, it transforms the experience of building and renovating for all involved. At Live Life Build, we see it as the best and most effective way to initiate and execute projects in custom residential building businesses, where the homeowner benefits from a truly collaborative process to bring their project dreams to reality.
