Working with David to plan the build of our home was really straight forward. David is very thorough, provides unambiguous advice and is willing to go the extra mile for his customers.
I really liked David’s attention to detail, customer focus and willingness to listen and address concerns quickly and efficiently. My family love the house David built!!
If I had to do it all over I would again choose David to build my home.
We write to express our complete satisfaction in our dealings with David and Jo Reid and all of their staff at David Reid Homes, Nowra. Our entire experience was positive in every respect. David and his staff were entirely open and honest in their dealings with us, realistic and accurate in their estimates. We approached the task of building a new house with considerable trepidation, but looking back we had nothing to worry about.
The two pieces of advice given to anyone wanting to build a house are firstly, “Talk to more than one builder” secondly, "Ask for references”. We totally disregarded this advice and just went with David Reid Homes and we never once regretted our decision. We found the team to be highly professional and extraordinarily proud of their product. We were encouraged to be closely involved in the design phase and any requests were always taken into account. After a long council approval process due to the difficult nature of the site the build itself went smoothly. The weekly email updates were informative and accurate and the fortnightly site meetings a chance to review progress and also resolve any issues or capitalise on any potential design enhancements.
David Reid and his site managers, Fabian Witenden and David Lewis, were always contactable and responsive to any concerns or questions. Any additional costs were always discussed upfront and agreed to before execution resulting in no additional cost surprises. The final product is an extremely well built and beautifully custom design house that sits well on a difficult site. David and his team should be proud of it as are we - the lucky owners.
We could not recommend David Reid, his staff and business more highly.
Our finished home is beyond expectations!
David, Jo and their team turned our fragmented ideas into a home for our dreams to live. Every meeting with Dave, Jo and Fabian proved that our goals and vision were more important to them than a package deal or sale. Although we could have chosen an 'off the shelf package' Dave not only supported every choice we made but also provided a professional designer to assist us and then brought the whole package together.
Our finished home is beyond expectations. We are most proud of the features and inclusion we designed ourselves, flooring, tiles, niches, folding windows, cavity doors, which other builders would make a difficulty, but every day we appreciate the quailty and design elements of our David Reid home, from the earthworks to make our block just right to the raised ceilings, fully waterproofed wet areas, exceptional painting finishes and the precision carpentry.
We decided to build rather than buy to have exactly the home we wanted but only David Reid could provide this. As our only building experience the anticipated stress just wasn't there, instead every stage of the build was a pleasure. Even the theft on our site which reached front page news was handled in the most professional and reassuring manner. We have trusted David Reid homes with our sanity, security and life savings and have been greatly rewarded.
The best answers we gave friends that asked about David Reid Homes. Who long did the build take? "As long as necessary so that we could live here for the rest of our lives, every delay was explained and we moved in 5 months after signing contracts". How much did it cost? "About $50,000 more than we budgeted and $100,000 less than it's worth.
From the design stage right through the build, nothing was a problem for Dave.
David Reid was the Builder on our beautiful new home at Hyams Beach.
Being a Designer myself, we made some significant amendments to the Plans during construction. Sometimes you just "see" possibilities along the way. We have fabulous, more extensive views due to Daves diligence. The Plans were altered & changes made before we even knew it.
Budgets were kept to and the time frame exact. My husband and I could not recommend a Builder more highly.
However the standout quality must be in Dave’s follow up service. Still, after the Build, if we require anything to be rectified Dave is a phone call away. Not often do people say after they have built a home that their Builder has become a friend but proudly we do.
We wish to convey our sincere appreciation!
We wish to convey our sincere appreciation for the construction of our new family home at Hyams Beach. It was their reputation for quality home building that led us to David Reid Homes South Nowra and they have not disappointed.
From our original onsite meeting with the designer and builder right through to the finish of our home, we found David Reid Homes to be professional, organised, and dedicated to build absolute quality homes.
Living onsite while our house was being built gave us the opportunity to see just how pedantic their team was, this wasn’t just limited to the builders, all of the sub-contractors did a fantastic job, nothing was ever an issue for Dave an amazing problem solver.
We have been able to enjoy our beach house for several months now, all our visitors and friends and many residents comment on the clever design, the way the fantastic views have been used to its full advantage, and the wonderful feel the house has, and that Dave is really a direct result of your work.
We would not hesitate in recommending you to anyone wishing to build.
Thank you Dave and Jo and your Dedicated Team.
We’ll never be satisfied with anything other than a David Reid home!
Dave, Jo and the rest of the team….you have delivered a house that so far exceeds our expectations we have to keep pinching ourselves that it's really ours.
Never in our wildest dreams did we imagine it would look this good (and certainly never thought we would ever live in a house like this - or that they existed outside of a magazine spread).
The workmanship, attention to detail and the way that you approach each build with the care and consideration as if it were your own home is beyond commendable.
We really feel that this was a partnership from start to finish - you never laughed at any of our crazy ideas (thank you again for reinforcing the floor so that we could add in our slide-out filing cabinet) and you really do live up to your promise of ‘custom-building’.
Nothing was ever too much trouble, you patiently answered our endless questions and went above and beyond with our requests and requirements.
The only problem….we are now completely spoilt and regularly say about other houses …’well that’s not a David Reid’ - we’ll never be able to build with anyone else!
Thankyou for bringing our dream to reality!
Dave and Jo Reid of David Reid Homes were contracted to build our new home at Huskisson in March 2012. Dave said that if all went well we could be in our home by Christmas, we were in by September 2012, what a great effort by Dave and his team.
During the construction Dave and Jo were fantastic at keeping us informed and helping us to make decisions along the way. David Reid Homes are not only great builders they are great people to deal with during and after the construction.
We love our new home and we thank Dave, Jo and the entire team for bringing our dream to reality.
We can highly recommend David Reid Homes as a professional builder.
We built a house on a sloping block and found them very easy and flexible to work with. At the end of the job there were no hidden costs added. The workmanship was of a very high quality and the entire building project was hassle free.
We want to let you know that we have been and continue to be very happy and impressed with the home you built for us. The quality of workmanship and finish are the highest standard.
Thankyou for the successful completion of our house at Sussex Inlet.
Dave from the outset managed the project with consideration and awareness of our needs. His eye for quality combined with excellent organisational skills delivered to us a home which we are extremely proud of and are finding very comfortable to live in.
Challenging Extension on our existing Farm House.
The extension and renovation of my 20 year old farm house was always going to be a challenge. However, Dave approached the task with enthusiasm and expertise. My home reflects my vision because Dave worked creatively with me until I was satisfied.
On our retirement me and my sister decided to build our dream home.Never had we built from the ground up.
We decided to research the local builders and project homes and came across David Reid Homes. After one consult with David Reid in person we were automatically drawn to his ideas and vision.
David made a point of listening to our ideas and created a home that reflects our lifestyle. Being first time home builders David and his team guided us through each stage and involved us in all aspects of construction with ease.
Many thanks David, Jo and Fabian, we are now living the dream.
Dave's commitment to quality workmanship is reflected in him being awarded the following awards at the Master Builders Association Excellence in Regional Building Awards. The awards recognise the design excellence, attention to detail and exceptional quality that Dave builds into every home.
