We had a challenge on our hands to find a builder who was prepared to take on a modest extension and refurbishment to our Queenslander style home designed to pay tribute to an earlier architectural award winning extension, in terms of styling and build integrity.

It turned out to be our lucky day when we signed up with Steve of St Andrews Constructions.  Steve was warned we were sticklers for quality and precision, and he rose to the challenge, turning up sometimes several times a day throughout the build to ensure that progress was being maintained and that we were happy.

The build was completed to our total satisfaction in the promised time of eight weeks, thanks to Steve’s skill at anticipating each stage of construction and ensuring materials were on site promptly.  Steve’s principal carpenter, Soren, was meticulous in his attention to detail and a true craftsman.  He also had the skill of being able to come up with innovative solutions when any challenges presented themselves.  Never have we seen builders who were so thoughtful in terms of our privacy, and ensuring the site was left immaculate at the end of each day.  Contractors brought in for specialised tasks (flooring, painting etc) were also of a very high standard.

When you find a good builder they are gems to be treasured and shared only with the lucky few.  Steve and his team are those gems.  We couldn’t be more pleased with the result.
