The Smart Footprint Difference

About Us

Built on Tradition, Designed for Tomorrow

Led by our Director Alex, our team’s skills cover various industries including commercial, residential and a specialty in small home options such as granny flats. The need was identified via our sister company Backyard Grannys, with many clients asking for homes larger than a granny flat but smaller than the average home. The discovery that there wasn’t a home builder in the Newcastle and Central Coast area servicing this need is how Smart Footprint Homes was born.

We strongly believe that the current property market is not meeting the needs of the everyday Australian, and that the time of the ‘McMansion’ is dead. We believe that smaller, smarter built homes are the answer to the housing affordability crisis and many other issues facing prospective buyers.  

Crafting Your Dreams Into Reality

Through extensive market research and the years of experience our team has accumulated servicing the building industry in Newcastle, we have developed a series of innovative and economical designs to suit a range of site and lifestyle requirements.

Whether you’re a first home-buyer, looking for an investment property or downsizing, our stylish and affordable inclusion packages can be customised to suit your individual needs.

We don’t want to be just another local building company. We want to create homes that allow our customers the freedom to live the life they always wanted to, and that don’t cost the earth… literally.

Commitment to Excellence

Prior to founding Smart Footprint Homes in 2018, owner and Director Alex Mitchell founded three other highly successful construction companies in the Newcastle greater area which all still operate today including the well known, award-winning granny flat business Backyard Grannys.

It was through Backyard Grannys, that a need in the market was identified for smarter-designed housing in the Newcastle area. Smart Footprint Homes was born with the team combining the skills and experience learnt building efficient quality granny flats with sound construction practices and project management from commercial projects completed via Xbuilt.

Alex has developed a professional and passionate team who can custom design a home of all sizes, to suit your needs.
