Building Homes for Over 25 Years

Our Team

Humble Beginnings

Emilio Raco, our founder and Managing Director, spent most of his youth working alongside his father in the construction trade learning the importance of engaging staff and sub-contractors who take personal pride in building a home. After qualifying as a carpenter, and completing studies in Building & Business, Emilio saw the opportunity to leverage his love of building homes and making people happy to establish Practical Building in 1994.

Since then Emilio and his team have built hundreds of homes of various size, design, budget and specification for satisfied customers. In 2018, the business name changed to Practical Homes to better reflect the company’s focus on helping people build their dream home to fulfill their ideal lifestyle.
