Our Clients

“We purchased a house that Josh built and had a professional building inspection conducted on the house prior to purchase.

The person undertaking the formal building inspection told us that it is one of the best examples of quality that he has seen in a long time… that the builder’s prowess and attention to detail was outstanding. We had friends through the house who are also builders and commented on the quality and finish! Well done to Josh, we are would highly recommend him to anyone who would ask.”

“Josh and his team were thoroughly professional in the complete rebuilding package they offered me. The design and solutions to my problems were innovative and offered me a better result than I had initially anticipated. The job was completed on time with no fuss.

While I was not necessarily seeking the cheapest quote available. I was delighted that the works came in the right on budget. But the standard of work and service exceeded my expectations.”

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to add a bedroom to a house?

Again, this is a tough one to answer without knowing some of the specifics around the property in question and the extra room itself. The potential costs can vary greatly depending on a variety of factors, from style through to size, timeline and quality.

The best way to get an idea of the potential costs involved with adding an extra room to your property is to book a consultation or on-site meeting with your builder. By discussing your distinct requirements and what you hope to achieve with the new space, they will be able to give you an indication of the amount you should be expecting to spend in order to get the results you want.

How long do house renovations take?
Each project is different. On signing the contract, we itemise and include Actual Work Days, Inclement Wet Days, Non – Work Days & Public Holidays and Annual Leave Holidays so nothing is a surprise.

You also have access to our work schedule in our Project Management software. This outlines every trade’s tasks and timelines, ensuring you’re well informed of the progress of your build.

Also, we have penalties built into our contracts if we haven’t completed the build within our allotted time frame however, we have never had a client who has claimed this penalty, giving you peace of mind that we are committed to complete your build on time.

Do I need an architect for an extension?

Not necessarily. Depending on your available budget you might opt to use a draftsman instead. Essentially, while an architect can oversee the entire breadth of tasks involved with a construction project, a draftsman focuses more specifically on the creation of the designs and drafts used by the builders during construction.

It really depends on your goal. For a more straightforward build, a draftsman may be the right fit. For something more complex in design, an architect could be the right way to go.

Do you need council approval for renovations?

The answer to this question will vary depending on where you live, with different rules and regulations coming into play depending on your local council. Each council has what’s known as a ‘planning scheme’. These planning schemes are designed to regulate the use and development of land in that specific locality.

One way this is achieved is the requirement of permits for certain types of land use and development. As the property owner, it’s your responsibility to find out whether a permit is required before you start work on your extension. Before you go any further, make sure you check out the specific requirements that apply to your particular address by approaching the planning department at your local council directly.

How much value does a renovation add?

This is not an easy question to give a definitive answer to in the early stages of planning for a renovation. There are many different factors that come into play, including the style, quality, functionality and size of the space that’s being renovated, to name just a few. If it’s done right, a renovation has the potential to add a huge amount of value to your property, as well as having the capacity to open it up to a whole new market of interested buyers, should you decide to sell. It is therefore vital that you select your builder carefully to ensure a high quality finish and maximise the financial gains.

How do I find a good renovation company?

A quality renovation can add significant value to your property by opening it up, creating extra space and boosting functionality, as well as improving the overall aesthetic. It’s a big investment, so selecting your contractor based on price alone might not be the smartest move. You’ll want to make sure whoever you employ to carry out the renovation work is up to the task in terms of reliability and quality of workmanship.

The first thing you’ll need to do is seek out fully-licensed, registered and insured practitioners for consideration. It would also be a good idea to look at their website and check whether they have solid testimonials and case study examples of projects they have worked on. Online reviews can be a good indicator of how reputable a contractor is, and proven experience working on similar scale projects is also a plus. In addition, you could try speaking to friends, family or the owners of neighbouring properties for their first-hand recommendations.

Is a house renovation budget important?
Starting the process of designing a custom home renovation without having a budget in mind will leave you devastated with the whole process.

You’ll either spend way more than you intended or your home won’t be fully completed and you’ll compromise on quality.

This is why we take time to listen to our client’s needs and wants to customise a renovation to suit their budget and align it with their renovation design. Our process is fool proof and takes you on the journey from initial consultation right through to handing back a stunning renovation that their friends and family are envious of.
