When considering a builder for such a huge project, we had to ask ourselves, could we spend the next 10 months working closely with this guy, putting everything we've got on the line (and also some of what the banks has)? How do we know if he's the right one for us? In the end, it wasn't that difficult.
Our project involved demolishing an existing house, extensive excavation and building an architecturally challenging residence from the ground up. Add to this painters, landscapers and poolbuilders, who we had assigned separately, and the project could have potentially become a site nightmare. Not on Dave's watch! Everyone worked in harmony. He diplomatically resolved any issues that arose, even though it wasn’t in his contract to do so. The man is driven by pride.
Now that our house is complete, we can honestly say that the experience, whilst stressful at times, was made easier knowing that Dave was only a phone call away. If we had any concerns, we just rang the big guy: problem solved!
Dave didn't just meet our expectations, he surpassed them. Apart from being an exceptional builder, he is a sincere and honest person with an infectious laugh. He has become a good mate and we are proud to know him.
