Mark and Jane
Please accept this letter of appreciation from our household to you as our friend and Builder.
We moved from Perth to Brisbane in December 2005 where we stayed with friends until we got settled in Brisbane. It was not long before we decided to look into building our own home. During that research period, we were introduced to you by the Stockland estate office at Parkwood Estate.
You very kindly showed us around the house you had built. Spending some time with you and listening to your ideas, we realized what an honest builder you were and we decided to take you up on your offer to help us build our new home.
We decided to buy in the Parkwood Estate and with your guidance, we then agreed on the lot to buy for our new home. After making this decision, you then set to work on a design for a house that would fit on our lot. We had several meetings with you as the design began to take shape.
We then had to move to Melbourne for a few months. But you being true to your word, kept working hard to ensure the building process could start as soon as possible and liaised with us regularly in Melbourne. You even took that extra mile and flew to see us in Melbourne to sit and talk through the contract with us to ensure we understood everything in it, which was really a very nice personal touch!!
Through the several conversations we had with you, we knew you were a very honest guy, hence we entrusted you to start building our house whilst we were in Melbourne. You were even on site to sort out the removal of the trees, which saved us a return journey or worse still a delay in starting the building. Yes, we know with the rain you encountered, you nearly built a swimming pool instead!
We valued your opinions all the way through the building process and you pointed us in the right direction on a few occasions as we were very new to Brisbane weather. Better still, we have to congratulate you in building our house from start to finish in 15 weeks, taking into account the heavy rainfalls, us being in Melbourne and lots of other things that could have delayed the project. The finished product was hard to imagine on paper but you should be proud of designing such a great family home for us to live in.
In fact, our 3 year old twins are that impressed that when they are ‘role-playing’ I hear them say “Barry built this house” and that’ s the house they have built for their toys to live in!
We can’t thank you enough for your hard work and management during the building of our home, ensuring excellent workmanship was upheld at every step of the process until it was completed.
