About JT Dodd

A word from the owner

Hello! My name is Josh Dodd, and I’m the owner and builder at JTDODD. I’ve been providing quality building services across Melbourne for over a decade.

Coming from a family of experienced builders, construction has always been in my blood. I remember from a very young age, hanging out in my room creating structures with K’Nex or building tree houses wherever I could from leftover timber.

Fast forward a decade, and I was completing my carpentry apprenticeship with my father, who was a well-regarded builder in the construction industry. Learning from the best, I was able to hone my craft as a carpenter and builder over the next several years, purchasing my first home and renovation project at the age of 19.

After completing my house transformation, I decided to get my builders license in preparation for the next step in my career. I took a break to travel Europe and America for five months, before coming back refreshed and ready to go. I bought a ute, filled it with the latest and greatest tools on the market, then began subcontracting as a carpenter where I learned more about hard work, quality and financials. It was this progression that soon saw me go into business with my father and brother, renovating homes and building new housing developments.

Now, with over 200 projects under my belt, a wealth of knowledge and a passion for the industry, I have gone out on my own, creating JTDODD, a professional home renovation business focused on delivering high-quality transformations.

Our Clients


“As a retired registered builder and now a building and maintenance supervisor for a large organisation in the retirement sector I have no hesitation in recommending JTDODD for your next renovation.

They have now completed a number of renovations for us over an extended period of time and are now our preferred contractor because of their good communication skills, their high quality of work and their pre planning all of which go to taking any stress out of the project and helping the job run smoothly.”

“I sold a beautiful house that JT Dodd built in late 2018 when the market was very slow. We had a whole range of different people through who all commented on the quality of the build. Myself and others were very impressed with the quality of finish throughout the entire house.

JT Dodd produced both quality and fast build times. Josh is a very professional, registered builder who knows his stuff and truly cares about end result. I would recommend Josh to anyone who would like to renovate & create that new home feeling.”
