Our About Us video for Dowling Homes

We’ve just updated our About Us page.  It tells the story of Jan and Kym Dowling and why Dowling Homes in Adelaide began, which everyone tells us they love.  I think you’ll find it really revealing.

Our old About Us page was a bit dull and boring and professional, so here’s our new one – we’d love you to check it out.

Here’s our story –

Building is in our blood. Before us, both our parents were in the building industry. Kym’s father built homes in and around Cumberland Park, while Jan’s father founded a large glazing business in Unley. The sights and sounds of building sites became the backdrop for both our childhoods, as we quietly learned the secrets of the craft.
