This was never going to be an easy house to build. Unique materials. A complex design. And a tricky site all meant we needed a builder who was up to the task.
When my architect recommended Steve and his team, I knew from looking at his previous work that I’d get a good house. But I didn’t think I would get a house that would go above and beyond all my expectations. Steve didn’t just build a dream. He absolutely made it better.
Steve and his team aren’t just some of the most talented people in the business; they are all – without exception – a genuine pleasure to work with. There was not a single raised voice on my build. We had regular catch ups. They answered all my questions (it was my first build, but they were very patient explaining things to me) and the team-spirit was fun and a pleasure to witness. I put a lot of trust in them, and they returned it every day.
The attention to detail and craftsmanship in this house gives me so much joy. It is a beautiful space and I am so happy here. From the NZIA to viewers on Grand Designs New Zealand (the show featured on TV3 as Episode 3) to family and friends – the response to my house has been overwhelming. I am so proud of it.
If you are thinking of building with Steve and his team, you have already made one of the best decisions of your adventure to come. I’d also like to pass on an open invitation to visit my home, so you can see for yourself the quality of work. Scott Lawrie
