Margaret & Fred – ‘Korumburra’

Re: Farm Houses: We found the design process extremely helpful in deciding what we wanted in our home, and it was fantastic to have the ability to move things around and try out all the options during the design process – and then see images of what the changes we made would look like, and how they impacted on the overall look and layout of our home.  The images gave us a really clear idea of how our home was going to look – although, of course, in reality, our home is way more beautiful than the images!

The staff at Farm Houses were fantastic to work with – they were very professional and friendly, and happy to spend a lot of time with us to get the design right. We felt that this was time well spent, as when our home was being built, nothing needed to be changed from the plans, and that is quite a change for Margaret, who is known for changing her mind……..

We would recommend the design process to other people without hesitation, because at the end of the process, Margaret got exactly what she wanted……

Re: Construction By Law: We found Construction By Law to be excellent builders.  Our home has been constructed to the highest of standards, and that is confirmed by Doug achieving second place in the 2010 HIA-Building Commission South East Victoria Regional Housing Awards–in the category of Custom Built Homes $350,000 – $500,000.

Doug always kept us up to date with what was going on with our home, and made sure we understood everything that was happening – even drawing us pictures when necessary to make sure we fully understood!

All of the tradespeople who worked on site were professional, friendly, and pleasant, and the apprentice had very good manners!

Any issues of concern to us have always been followed up quickly and resolved in a timely fashion. 

With any undertaking of this size, there are always going to be “moments”, but overall, we found the construction of our home to be a smooth and trouble-free process – Doug was extremely approachable and happy to spend the time with us to ensure we got what we wanted, and his support staff could not do enough to assist us. We expected to experience a lot of stress while we were building, but really, it was way easier than we thought it was going to be. 

We would not hesitate to recommend Construction By Law and Doug to anybody looking for a fantastic builder.
