.I advise that we entered a building contract with Larkin & Drought Builders late in 2012 to construct our home at the above address with Craig Drought taking primary responsibility for this project.
Our home is quite a large property with a living area approximately 50 squares, but when you add in balconies, garages and alfresco areas the actual construction totals excess of 70 squares. In addition, the house has 3 levels, incorporates an inground pool as a structural element of one of the walls and is built on a steeply sloping block.
Although i am not involved in the building industry i had a good idea from the outset that this was going to be a complex building project (as evidenced by the significant engineering involved in the design), but it was not until the project moved into full swing that i fully appreciated the challenges that would be faced by the builder.
Despite these challenges Craig was extremely receptive to the many changes that we raised with him during the construction and in fact he actually made a nnumber of suggestions himself thoughout the project that significantly enhanced the final outcome, despite many of these changes causing increased complexity and often disrupting the shedule.
All the way through the project we had the very clear view that Craig's total focus was on getting the best possible outcome. His attention to detail and the quality of workmanship on the project also left us in no doubt about this.
Since we have moved in we have had many people comment on the quality of our home and would therefore have no problem what-so-ever recommending Larkin & Drought Builders to anyone looking to build a home, no matter how large or complex the construction may be.
