Shayne - San Remo House

Nothing was ever too much trouble for Martin Builders and I was never made to feel like a pain or hindrance. I know myself that I’m pedantic when it comes to finishes and attention to detail, however it was reassuring to learn that Louy was just as pedantic as myself and wouldn’t accept anything but the best. This gave me complete piece of mind throughout the build that my house was being constructed to the highest level of quality. Budget was equally important to me, as it’s rather daunting when you are 26 years old and your biggest purchase to date was a car. I’m happy to say that my house came in on budget at exactly what I was quoted, all bar a couple of variations, which I made during the build.

Now that I’m living in my house, my decision to go with Martin Builders is reaffirmed everywhere I look. The quality of workmanship, the selection of products used and the attention to detail I simply believe could not be rivalled. I’m so glad I went with my gut feel in the beginning, as I believe choosing Martin Builders to build my very first house remains one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. The entire process from start to finish was effortless for myself with minimal worry, something I know is not said often when building your very first home. I’d have no hesitation recommending Martin Builders to any other prospective party. If I ever decide to build again in this lifetime, I wouldn’t even consult with another builder, Martin Builders would be my first and only choice.


Glenn & Kate - The Croft House

Dave, I can say with total hand on heart that you have done a magnificent job building a very complicated house for Kate, our family and myself.

The house is a visual joy and a testament also to outstanding design from our architect, James Stockwell.

I have lived with and worked alongside, you and your team throughout the construction phase. I have constantly marveled at your uncompromising desire for high quality and your consultative approach to working out build techniques for every difficult element of the building.

Dave, I recall vividly the time when James and I were contemplating which builder to use under a contract arrangement whereby I took on all the cost and time risk. You won the project because in my mind, you were realistic and honest about the time and cost required to build what was a unique and complicated house. In other words, you put your neck on the line at the risk of not being awarded the building contract. Well I can confidently say that I chose wisely.

The best testament of your work is from the many visitors who have marveled at the workmanship excellence. What they did not see was your unflustered and very positive, friendly attitude throughout.

Dave, my professional background leads me to being a tough taskmaster and probably a very demanding client. However, it was a joy to be involved with you on the project and we hope you win plaudits and awards for the craftsmanship you have displayed.

Well – done and good luck for your future success.


Leisa –  Coast House

In early 2014 I contacted Martin Builders to build my new home. It was extremely important to me to work with a builder who shared my design principles/aesthetics, and that I completely trusted to build me an eco-friendly, quality home with attention to detail, within a specified budget and time frame. On this basis Martin Builders was my builder of choice, and they delivered in each of these areas.

Chris and the team was extremely well planned and organised, keeping me with regular updates of what progress, trades were to occur each week. Throughout the process Chris was in regular contact to confirm details/choices with me, and was proactive in providing suggestions that he felt may provide a superior result, regardless of whether it involved more time/effort in his behalf.

The build of my new home was completed within the specified period of time, on budget (except a few upgrade variances I agreed to J ) and with minimal stress/disruption. Overall, I am extremely pleased with my building experience/result, and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Martin Builders to other prospective clients.
