We utilised the services of Your Building Broker to design our house for our block which had many challenges and aspects to consider. Our block overlooks the wetlands of Blackadder creek over to the Swan River in Viveash (Near Guildford). Some of the desing considerations included:
- Odd shaped Block
- Drainage Easements
- Right of Way Easements
- Rear Views
- Swimming Pool requirements
Steve and his designers did a great job on capturing our requirements and coming up with almost the perfect design first up. With a few modifications we were all happy with the outcome. Now came the moment of truth of getting quotes from builders and to see if we were in budget. The first couple of quotes were a little scary and we looked at the possibility of making a few design modifications (all of which detracted from the original designs). This is where Steves knowledge came in to the fore as he made subtle changes which did not really impact the overall look, feel or functionality of the design. This combined with his number of contacts with different builders led to us being introduced to one particular builder who provided a very competitive quote. They also offered us different alternatives to a standard contract and we decided doing the build as a cost plus contract in the current environment was a good way to go.
We have also recently done our selections through the use of Kristen and Megan. We were put on to Kristen and Megan by Steve from Your Building Broker and we are very pleased with the outcome. With a meeting in our home to go through our preferences and requirements they had our brief and budget. Move forward two weeks and they delivered a fully specced addenda with samples of the products. In critical areas we were given a couple of choices. The selections were amazing and the way they sourced the different products and prices was quite amazing. After this meeting we had all of our selections down without trudging many different stores getting confused. Their knowledge of building products and items that add value to the house means that we were able to get the best outcome for our budget. We now have a lot of confidence in the finish we will get from our home. Great value for money and would recommend to all.
