Thanks for your help, Peter.  I was wandering around the place here yesterday and contemplating the quality and value-adding work you and your guys have done for us over the years - we don’t forget or take it for granted and we really appreciate the various projects - all lifestyle additive.  Thank you is not really enough

I had the good fortune to come across Niven Builders when we were looking to build our new home in St Andrews Beach in 2012. Peter Niven is fantastic. I have worked with many builders in my work life and none have come close to Pete and his team.


Pete said early on that he'd work hard to ensure we had a great relationship all the way through. I'm a difficult customer at the best of times. Pete was right, we still do have a great relationship, he and his team built us a beautiful home and in 2019 we have just finished an extension which is incredible! Pete's team is like family, no tempers, no rudeness, just honest people doing great work, nothing is too much trouble. Get in touch with Pete if you are looking to build. He can get you in touch with me if you like, I'd be happy to show you my home and answer any queries. Niven Builders are true craftspeople! All the best

We have just moved in to our bespoke/dream home and are so happy we chose Niven Builders to complete the build.

Peter and his team took the time to listen and work together to achieve the best outcome for our build. Nothing was too much trouble.


The consultation process during the build ensured our finished home was all we had envisioned. This included following up discussions, with a written record of decisions made and pictures of items selected so we always knew what choices we had made. We made many site visits during the build and we were always made welcome. The site was very clean and tidy. Peter and the team produced a quality build that is obvious to all who visit our home.

Peter is a gentleman and it was a pleasure to work with him and the team. He did everything possible to ensure we are happy clients. We highly recommend you contact Peter as you will benefit from his experience and the pride he takes in the build he completes.

In 2012 my wife and I were lucky enough to purchase two blocks of land side by side in Rye with magical views stretching from Cape Schanck across Arthur’s seat and all the way to Melbourne. We designed our forever home and in 2015 we set on a quest to find our builder.


Having had a background in building when I was younger meant I was fastidious. We asked everyone we met about great builders on the Mornington peninsula and a few names came up but many suggested we should meet with Peter Niven. We met with Peter and others a number of times and always came back to Peter because he was just so accommodating to our needs and desires and simply did not talk rubbish and made no outrageous promises. He wanted to deliver our forever home at a reasonable time, to a high quality and at a fair price.

We have now been in our dream home for just over a year and I can say hand on heart that building this home was one of the most enjoyable and rewarding experiences of my life. Peter and his team delivered a truely exceptional home on time and dead on budget. This home will be in our family for many generations into the future.


It is our families sanctuary and we have Peter and his team to thank for that. In my opinion when it comes to building homes on the peninsula there is Niven Builders and then there is everyone else. Do yourself a favour, talk to Peter, look at their work and come and see my home and you will be on the right path for your future build. Peter is a true gentleman and a man of his word. He and his team really care and will go out of their way to deliver your dream.
