About Us


Our customer focus approach and quality built homes are what make us the respected builder we are today. Many of our clients return to build their second home with us and recommend us to their family and friends as they valued our honesty, affordability and quality when building their first home.



Here at Practical, we pride ourselves on being a long established, family run business that has built a strong reputation as a quality new home builder in Sydney’s south west for over 29 years. 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.
