We are two local carpenters who actually care about your home.

We started Bailind Construction to fill the need in the industry for a more personalised construction experience

We love nothing more than seeing the satisfaction in our clients, when they first see their finished project, exactly as they had envisioned. Hearing that they are still getting enjoyment from it a year on, comes a close second.



We specialise in beautiful renovations which work with, and elevate, your home.

We also work with the best industry partners and can put together a crack project team to handle any job, saving you time, money and worry.




Derek is a Bayside local with 25 years worth of experience in the construction industry. He has twenty three years of building experience, and spent two years landscaping.

In his spare time, Derek enjoys camping with his three children, golfing with his mates, and watching the NRL any way it comes. If he wasn’t a builder, he'd be a fire fighter.

Derek's favourite thing about his job is: Bringing the outside in with QLD open plan living.

Derek loves to create living spaces that bring the outside in utlising Queensland style open living.




Russ is a local to the Bayside with 25 years industry experience, split between plumbing for fifteen years,  and building & plumbing for ten years.

In his spare time, Russ enjoys camping with his three kids, golfing, surfing and kitesurfing. If he wasn’t a builder, he'd be a helicopter pilot.

Russ' favourite thing about his job is seeing a great dream design come to life for his clients.




Your opinion matters to us. Whether you’re designing a new home, or building an extension, we get to know you and what you want first.


Beautifully constructed

We put more care and time into our construction, which means your home is crafted to your personal standards and you’re satisfied.



We are happy to work alongside your tradespeople, or can put together the best quality team of local professionals for any job, great or small.


Cared for

We love nothing more than developing a relationship with our client, so that we get to witness their enjoyment currently and into the future, including additional projects.

Russell and Derek at Bailind Constructions are the BEST in the business. They did an absolute top quality job of our recent renovations which have made us love our home again! They are genuine and relaxed in their approach, operating with professionalism, integrity and pride in everything they do. We now recommend them to our clients, friends and relatives unreservedly. We trust them so much we would never get any other company to quote a renovation or home building project…we only ever want to partner with them!

Trish and Matt Griffiths

We have used Russell’s professional services for about 15 years. During that period, he has completed several major projects and addressed maintenance issues on both our home and city apartments.

He undertook a major ‘sympathetic rebuild’ of the rear sunroom on our 100 year old Queenslander, together with a full bathroom rebuild, verandah-decking replacement and rebuilding our boundary fence.

He also completely refurbished one apartment doing most of the demolition, design and construction works himself and project managed the remaining trades.

Russell has unhesitatingly addressed all our maintenance issues in a prompt, pleasant and efficient manner. His professional approach, extensive skill set and attention to detail go together with his thinking ‘outside the box’ to solve any tricky issues.

We cannot recommend Russell highly enough; in fact we have done so on several occasions.

David and Yvonne Schoch

We want to say thanks so much for all that you have done for us. It has been such a relief to find someone we could feel comfortable to do the right thing by our house – and we realise that you and your team have gone above and beyond what was asked of you. We really appreciate your professionalism and even more so, the fact that you listened to us.

Chris and Ari

Highly recommend our local builder Russell from Bailind Constructions for any home improvement projects. We have had our front wooden stairs replaced, leaky gutter fixed and a whole new bathroom renovated by his team last year. Russ and his team were professional and catered for our needs. They are easy to communicate with and reasonably priced. We are very happy with the quality of their work and would like to recommend them to other local residents to support a great local business.
