Our Journey

Debra and Damian have been working together for 35 years. They formed a business partnership in 1987 in Alice Springs working in the residential and commercial construction sectors, building new homes, additions and renovation works, and light industrial projects. Prior to this period Damian worked as a construction supervisor for a large building company specialising in new homes. In 1994 they became a Company, “MacKenzie Homes” which saw their business grow further. 


In 1998 to be closer to their family they made the move back to South Australia and continued building , this saw their Company expand to become “MacKenzie Homes & Commercial “ undertaking Architectural Custom Built Homes and Commercial projects including local and state government contracts in Clare and throughout the mid north and surrounding areas.

We are a family business and pride ourselves on producing the highest quality build we can. We look forward to working with you on your next exciting project.

We had the good fortune to see the outstanding quality of Damian’s work on a visit to Clare before we moved from Canberra to South Australia in 2014. So impressed were we with the care and detail of his work that we didn’t bother to get a second quote for our full house and separate garage build. We only recommend Damian to those who ask us for builder recommendations in the Clare Valley.
