“Passionate clients are heaps more fun to build for,” Nathan quips. “I like clients that want something different, and nice, and can budget for it. Because every day is different. I like the different personalities … and I get a kick out of building something that the client wants. The level of creation is huge. It’s interesting stuff to build.”

Can you price different options to ensure our renovation ideas come within our available budget?
Absolutely. We can comment on and recommend different cladding, roofing, fittings, windows, insulation and heating options that fit different budget scenarios.
What are the steps to getting a renovation underway?
1. Work out your budget based on what the bank will lend and what you are comfortable with. Build in a margin for cost overruns (in case you choose extras or the renovation uncovers unforeseen issues along the way). 2. Have an initial conversation with us to discuss your ideas and plans. We'll set you up with one of our architects or draughtsmen. 3. Create a brief for your renovation plan e.g. number of rooms, ensuite, butler's panty etc and include photos of what you like. We will prepare a detailed estimate based on the approved plan.
Enjoy the outdoors as an extension of your home with decks, fencing, and garden beds that flow seamlessly from the living space to the street frontage.
Nature: Work around the features of your section with hard landscaping to enhance the natural contour, protect established trees, or frame your view. Nurture: On a new section, make the most of the blank canvas by planning your hard landscaping in conjunction with the build.

“I inspire the team to be involved in dreams, not buildings. Together, lets create the solutions that deliver the lifestyle you’ve earned.”
“Clients care about the details. Experience the polished finish of our professional, qualified builders, guided by a master craftsman. Your pride is our definitive goal.”
"I came to the site a lot, and can't remember ever seeing anyone standing around. There was always movement and action. It was always clean and tidy.
"I think you can always tell the quality of a builder by the way they leave the site," Paul says.
"I was impressed with the sub-contractors who all worked to the same standard as the builders, and mucked in when needed so things went smoothly. I enjoyed the whole process." - Paul
"WITH TWO CHILDREN AT HIGH SCHOOL IN THE CITY AND ONE MORE AT INTERMEDIATE, MOVING TO BE NEAR THE KIDS' FRIENDS MADE PERFECT SENSE.
Our former home was located on a large block of land, and the workload with the extra space was eating into our time. The move to a townhouse near the schools has simplified travel arrangements, freed up leisure time, and allowed us to adapt to the needs of a family with teenagers.
Re the collaboration with Nathan Cook, Paul sings their praises. "This wasn't my first home build and most likely won't be my last." - Abode Magazine
