It was a pleasure to build our new home with Larkin & Drought. We got what we asked for- friendly, enthusiastic and extremely professional builders who delivered us a very high quality home with all our 'must haves'. We would have no hesitation in building with them again or recommending them to others.

.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.

We write to say thankyou for undertaking our extension. We are very pleased with the final result and look forward to many years of enjoyment in our entertainment room. Shari is also thrilled with her new bedroom, walk in robe and ensuite.

From our first meeting to the completion of the project, your professionalism was always evident. We appreciated your easy going natures and willingness to accomadate our ever changing requirements. Wheter it was asking you to requote, or changing window sizes, roof structure etc. thoughout the while building process, you were always obliging. (even though underneath you were probably cursing us!) - for this we were extremely grateful and apologise if we gace you too much greif.

We are certainly "singing your praises" and if the need was to arise, we wouldn't hesitate to engage your services again.

Thankyou also for the great pots- they look terrific on the deck.

We wish you all the best for your future business adventures.

We, Julie and Greg Devlin would like to recommend Larkin & Drought Builders for any building and construction work. 

We recently had an extension added to our home by Larkin & Drought Builders. We found them to be extremely efficient and helpful in every way.

The project was finished before the completion date. They were very willing and open to any suggestions or alterations that we may have had.

Their workmanship was very professional and of a high standard.

We have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone wishing to undertake an extension or new home.

When deciding to build our home we contacted Drew Larkin as we were aware they were awarded the license to build Wookey style homes, one in particular attracted our attention.

After several meetings with Drew & Craig we were satisfied that they were the builders that met our criteria to build our home.

We were looking for builders who were flexible enough to modify as the project progressed, able to accomodate our needs to deliver high quality results with a minimum of fuss.

Above all we were looking for a partnership that relies heavliy on trust, reliabilty and the ability to deliver as expected. To this end Larkin & Drought builders delivered on all accounts. They continually met all the benchmarks during the build along with the high quality expected by us.

Each of the associated trades personnel were selected for the high quality workmanship and together they did not dissapoint.

The end result was a home that showcases the craftsmanship of many trades under the guidanceof Drew & Craig.

We have no hesitation in recommending Larkin & Drought Builders to anyone seeking a high quality home built to the customer's expectations.
