Quotation-Marks

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!

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

 

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!

Gernot & Hildegund Jander, Cooktown

 

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
endeavours.

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.

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!

Thanks for being there if we needed any help. You have a fantastic team and we wish you every
success.

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.
Warmest thanks,

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.

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.

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
of building.
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.


Richard & Carol Bellamy – Mount Mellum

We wanted a house that was sustainable and you enabled this to happen by working with
us so that we have no need to air condition or heat our home. This compliments our other
environmental wins – we use no mains water and no mains electricity.

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
Kit Homes.

Mike & Wendy Weekes – Boonah QLD

Q. What was the main reason you considered or thought about building a kit home?

A. We initially hadn’t considered a kit home but the hands-on knowledge of their beautifully designed product and their confidence in making a reality of what we were picturing, made Classic Kit Homes a standout.

Q. What benefits did you see in choosing a kit home as opposed to having your new home built by a project builder or a volume builder?

A. Because of our rural location, it made sense for all the materials to be sourced by the designers of the home and delivered to the site.

Q. Please tell us why you made the decision to buy from Classic Kit Homes

A. Honestly, we had heard so many other people’s horror stories from building a home that we wanted to avoid such dramas. From our early contact with CKH we sensed a genuine and trustworthy partnership that over the coming months was proven 100%. The initial design process was smooth, accompanied by a balance of professionalism and friendliness.

Q. Please tell us what was most important to you when choosing Classic Kit Homes

A. Clear communication, Support from an experienced builder, Dealing directly with owners

Q. What were your main fears and concerns in building a kit home?

Q. What was the best thing you enjoyed about your Classic Kit Home experience?

A. Watching our home come together, knowing the professional advice of CKH was just a phone call away. We enjoyed the ability to be closely involved at every stage of the building process. Choices from a range of quality inclusions throughout the build was important to us, e.g. insect screens for the French doors. CKH recommended our builder and his team of tradesmen, and together they ensured all our fears and concerns were unfounded.

Q. Please give us feedback on one thing we could improve to provide a better experience for others:

A. I find it very hard to think of anything! One of the most helpful things for us was to see photos of other CKH projects and be able to see a similar home. This is why we’ve been happy to provide that for others. A broad check list of what we needed to source would have helped us as first time new home builders. I appreciate that this is NOT part of the kit, but would help in overall planning and budgeting.*
