After much internet research, looking at display villages, home shows and talking to many builders, we settled on Ben Knott from Maddison Constructions.
He was well experienced at building on difficult sloping blocks and passionate about delivering a quality home within budget. He was very easy to talk to, well organised and always passionate about his building.
I designed a floor plan and then worked with Ben's draftsman (Paul) to refine the details.
His knowledge of the small lot code enabled us to gain maximum benefit out of our 20 X 20 m2 block and the application breezed through council.
Thanks to Paul's patience and insight, we now live in a truly wonderful beautiful functional house, that makes us feel like we live in a tree house with magnificent views.
Ben has a great team of quality tradesmen. They were always friendly, courteous and prided themselves on their workmanship. Luke was always patient and willing to answer my questions on building and time frames. Drew and his team built us a most beautiful functional kitchen, which is such a joy to cook in.
Even with all the additional variation work of "man cave", deck, retaining walls, fences, driveway, paths and turf, Ben still managed to get us in before Christmas.
I would like to give Ben and his team heartfelt thanks for their support and quick resolution, when we had flooding rain wash way our front yard twice into our neighbour's swimming pool. They immediately cleaned up all the mud and had turf laid so it wouldn't happen again.
It was wonderful to have the residents in the street make a point of letting us know how polite and considerate the builders were. They were all very impressed with the quality build and its speed.
Ben's communication, attention to detail, organisation and perfectionism exceeded our expectations and made the building process very rewarding.
We would not hesitate to recommend Maddison Constructions for quality building jobs and particularly for difficult sloping small lots - satisfaction guaranteed. Thank you Ben and the team for a brilliant job.
