WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
We contacted 16 builders with our plans and of those, six responded with quotes. We did our
homework and contacted previous clients of all six builders. In your case your reputation far
exceeded anyone else, with all your clients showering praise upon you and your team.
A builder who inspires confidence, is true to their word and takes the stress out of building. What a
rare find! You are an excellent communicator who listened and built what we wanted, not what he
wanted to build. And the bonus was an exceptional home, built on time and on budget. Thank for
turning our dreams into reality!
Clive & Elisabeth Waring – Maleny
Just thought I’d let you know that Michelle and I are extremely happy with the completion of our
new beach house. It turned out to be a lot flasher than the plan gave credit. Your insight was
helpful and the whole job came together perfectly. We can’t wait until our first holiday and the
tourists start letting it. The locals really liked the street appeal. If new clients wish to have a look,
don’t hesitate to contact me to arrange an inspection. Many thanks!
Dare & Michelle Osborne
Communication was very important to us, and we did not have any problem with regard to
this with Classic Kit Homes. Also, building a house can be very stressful, however, with Adrian’s
guidance, things went very smoothly – thank you! We have endorsed Classic Kit Homes to two
future client’s already – without a doubt. If we ever build again we would definitely choose Classic
Brian & Ana Halesworth, Yarooma
Many thanks again to you for doing this job for us. We have been living in our new house for
about one month and are totally happy with it. There is really nothing that could be better. And
thank you for choosing Graeme as our builder. He organised it all very well and is very helpful with
becoming acquainted with life in Cooktown. There were many people here to see this house and
all seem very impressed with it, even if we turned it around, on your advice, and have the back to
the street. But this was a very good decision, since we have no wind on the verandah and a very
fine lookout to the Endeavour River and most impressive sunsets.
If you come back to Cooktown, please don’t hesitate to come in for a cup of coffee (or what you
like better!). Thank you. Best regards to you and Heather, hopefully seeing you again soon!

Prior to purchasing our kit home, my wife and I had been living in Cairns for about 2 ½ years
and had spent countless hours looking for suitable builders and visiting display homes. We were
specifically after something different and were surprised by the lack of interest in constructing
something other than the concrete block homes so apparent in the area.
Budget was another major concern and we were frustrated as to why there were significant cost
differences between Cairns and other major cities. In some cases, the price differential was as high
as 25%! Local suppliers cited reasons such as freight and labour costs, etc. Our research revealed
that whilst the freight component would add a nominal amount to the final price, the labour
content should be similar.
We began to wonder whether perhaps the pricing of local homes was either grossly overstated or
houses were taking too long to build. Finally after months of research, we discovered Classic Kit
Homes – a building company who we felt was prepared to offer honest and professional advice
and to substantiate the various costs involved.
At first, my wife and I were both sceptical about a ‘kit home’ concept. After all, we were after
something special and insisted on quality construction. Following discussions with Adrian and
after viewing the homes on their website, we began to appreciate the quality of this product and
the benefits of having a home prefabricated in a factory with the entire manufacturing process
handled by a single company.
As second time builders, it was important to have a higher level of input into this project to
ensure that the construction was completed to our satisfaction. To our surprise, our kit home was
delivered and completed to lock up stage in less than 4 weeks, a substantial effort for a floor area
in excess of 230 square metres.
My wife and I are extremely happy with our purchase, and with the expert advice and
professionalism we obtained from you and your company. We would have no hesitation in offering
our recommendation to any prospective clients.”
Brendon & Nicola Rose – Goldsborough Valley
David and I would like to extend our sincere thanks to you and your team for the professional
service and attention to detail you have provided during the planning and construction of our
beautiful new home.
It has been a pleasure to deal with a company that embraced our ideas right from inception. You
worked with us carefully to meet our specific needs, ensuring those ideas came to fruition. We also
greatly appreciate the time you took in visiting our property to get a first hand feel for what David
and I were trying to create for our building site. The journey we embarked on with your team has
been a smooth and rewarding one.
We do not hesitate to recommend your company to those who remark on the design of our home.
David & Sue Borg – Kenilworth
Just thought it worth mentioning that watching the progress of the house we are very pleased that
we decided to go with Classic Kit Homes. Your crews seem very professional and are all really nice
to deal with, and the standard is terrific – such an improvement over the last time we built. You
seem to understand the need to spec UP rather than MINIMUM SPEC – it fills us with confidence!
Ian & Gail Caire – Eumundi
Walter and I would like to express our sincere thanks to yourself, Colin and all of your team in
helping to make… our first home such a positive and efficient experience. We have all heard the
nightmare stories… and the many bad experiences which people have had, however ours was a
far cry from this.
Colin was always very willing to listen to us and very patient in helping us to achieve exactly what
we wanted in our home, even if it meant adding a window here, and shifting some huge beams…
Nothing was too much trouble. They were there to help us get the house of our dreams, not to
just complete another job, and this they did with pride and care.
Our home has been completed in a way which we believe many other people would be envious
of, with little fuss, lots of co-operation, and on time!! We were always made to feel welcome [and] consulted… ensuring things ended up how we wanted them…
We would like to thank everyone involved for their contribution in making… our home the
positive and happy experience which it has been and we wish you all lots of luck in your future
Larissa & Walter Meyer – Palmwoods
Thanks for being there if we needed any help. You have a fantastic team and we wish you every
Lisa & Scott Thorne
Nothing was a problem from drafting our plans or making suggestions to improve on our ideas…
The quality, workmanship, help, assistance and friendly attitude made our experience at building
our first house easy, and if any recommendations are ever required we are but a phone call away.
Thank you again for exceeding all of our expectations.
Billy, Leah & Paris – Buderim
Some time ago I started to think about building my dream home. I made a very fortunate decision
to use your services and expertise for the task at hand.
At my first meeting I outlined what I wanted in design and functionality. I also discussed the
importance, to me, in choosing the right building materials to suit my environment, maintenance
issues and the constraints of my land.
From that meeting the preliminary design was sketched out, just as I had pictured it in my mind. I
now live in a home that I love and feel very “at home” in.
What was it that differentiated Classic Kit Homes from other companies I had spoken with? The
team listened to me. They did not try to sell me a house of their choosing, they designed a home to
suit me and my needs.
I am so glad that I chose Classic Kit Homes and I would recommend them to anyone who wants a
home that really suits their needs. My home came in on budget and on time, and the whole team
worked with me to make my dream home a reality.

Just thought We’d let you know that once again our [kit home] survived a severe cyclone attack.
TC Yasi hit Tully and then travelled up and over the range to Ravenshoe. It was pretty scarey
inside the bathroom with 3 people and 5 dogs listening to the wind howl like a train for 4 hours
and hearing things go flying and hitting things. The house shook, but once again our strongly built
home had not a scratch or anything lost. Thanks once again for a great safe house to live in.
Pam Dillon – Ravenshoe
Great hassle-free service from start to completion and it was completed as per contract conditions.
Planning on another build in the future and will be using you again without doubt.
Andrew – Eudlo
We came to Australia in August 2003 looking for suitable acreage on which to build a new but
authentic Queenslander style home. We chose your company because you were an award winning
builder specialising in this style of property.
Both Adrian and Ken were extremely professional and helpful in guiding us through the
complexities of the designs whilst listening to our ideas and adjusting the plans accordingly.
It took us 5 months to complete our home during which time we liaised closely with an extremely
able group of builders who were both accommodating and professional. Adrian chose his trades
people well and we have to say we’re very pleased with the end result, a solidly built home with
great street appeal which has won an award for ‘Best Use of Timber’.
We would like to thank everyone for doing such a sterling job and we wish you all the best.
Bryan & Susie Houston – Noosa
Just to thank you once again for the excellent work that you have done on my property in Maleny.
Everyone who has seen it speaks of the high quality of workmanship. I have to admit; initially I had
my reservations about building a property from overseas with me not being present at any stage
What convinced me to pick Classic Kit Homes was the numerous awards you’ve won, the good
reviews you received in magazines and of course the face-to-face meeting we had to discuss my
requirements. I am very happy with the way things went… All very professionally done.
If I do this again, or if I have to refer someone… it will definitely be you. Please thank the rest of
your team as well for the professional and quality service I received throughout.
Brienne Van der Walt – Maleny
We found you on the internet and not by word of mouth. But now in hindsight we both agree it
was a good decision. Like any business you are there to make money and we are more than happy
with the quality of our house. You do exactly what you say you will do, which is not always norm for
this industry. You have gained a name for quality in the industry and I have personally learned this
from other sources.
