About Us

Craig Martin

Starting out as a carpenter I completed my building apprenticeship and went on to complete my building supervision training to become an open licensed builder in 1990. I spent a number of years building a range of renovations, new homes and duplexes before taking on a role as Building Consultant for Fair Trading and Home Owner’s Warranty Insurance.

I have provided site and project management expertise across all forms of residential development and construction, including custom homes, duplexes, townhouses and unit blocks for almost 30 years.

The most rewarding aspect of my building work is taking a hands-on approach to each project, looking for better solutions and building client relationships. Knowing that we’re truly partners in the project with the same goals brings comfort to my clients, recommendations and repeat work.

As with my work and family life, I like to take a hands-on approach in volunteering in Tamworth within the community and the building industry. I am an active Rotary Club member and enjoy assisting in numerous initiatives. HIA have also engaged me two years running to judge new home builds in Northern NSW.


Interior Design Services

Hi! I’m Mandy,

I’m Craig’s wife of 19 years and as a fully qualified interior designer, experienced renovator, and student of Renovating for Profit, it is my pleasure to support you with your design requirements.

I look forward to meeting with you to discuss your site’s aspect, interior spatial requirements, your taste and ‘must-haves’, and equally ‘must nots!!’. This knowledge is critical in ensuring the best house design is chosen to fulfill your requirements or if need be, a complete custom build design commission.

Call today
0414 614 880

Once the house design is chosen and the contract is signed it’s time to choose the colours, finishes and fittings in a relaxed and enjoyable way, with knowledge and tips that will help with your decision making.

If you’re looking to sell your current property I can assist with its styling and staging or even carry out a basic renovation-for-profit so that it can sell for the highest price in the shortest time possible.

Your own personal sanctuary is my goal, every time. Please call today or email me at for further advice.

Our Difference

When you choose Kareela Constructions you will personally be dealing with me, the director and owner of the business. I’m not a franchise and my company isn’t so big that you’ll be dealing with a salesperson. Every project is considered in minute detail. You will receive a detailed quotation and we don’t charge excessive fees for changes within the set time-frames.

Kareela Constructions brings you over 25 years’ construction experience. Spanning house renovations, extensions and additions, heritage refurbishments, new homes, duplex and townhouse complexes, our own developments, commercial construction management and building consulting services.

We nurture clients with the view to establishing long term relationships – when you build or develop again, we want your business, we value your custom and this is reflected in the way we deal with you.

We’re also flexible, and offer clients the ability to shape the design process; we will work with you to adjust the floor plans and specifications so that you get exactly what you want.

Our goal is to ensure your peace of mind throughout your project by keeping you up-to date with open and honest communication.
