"Please accept this letter as my highest recommendation of DirectBuild Australia.
I have had the opportunity and pleasure to work with the team of DirectBuild over the past 12 months through obtaining my Owner Builder License to extending and renovating our entire home.
Their input, information and experience were invaluable in our efforts to creating our family dream home.
I am so glad that we decided to engage the services of DirectBuild, as attempting owner builder on my own was very overwhelming. I am a stay at home Mum (retired Banker) with 5 children under 9, the youngest newly born when we embarked on this adventure. I felt at ease during our Build knowing that I had DirectBuild at my side.
DirectBuild resolved any issues that arose, providing solutions and recommendations.
We could not be happier with the end result and process. With the service provided, the money we saved and enabling us to have control over the building project, I look forward to working with DirectBuild again in the future."

"We used Brendon at DirectBuild to help us build a large extension to our house last year.
We were confident we could project manage the build but lacked any construction knowlege to ensure a quality result. Brendon bridged that gap by providing detailed timelines, budgets, access to pre-screened tradies and clear scope of works documents.
He came on site regularly to quality check each trade's work and was always available and ready to help when issues arose.
The significant discounts he negotiated with suppliers was the envy of many trades, and more than covered the cost of his fees. Not only did we save lots of money being owner builders, I feel we got a higher quality result by being in control of the entire build process ourselves."

"When my wife and I decided to knock down the existing dwelling and build our new home at East Killara, we looked at a number of alternatives including several project homes, custom home builders and cost-plus builders.
We had previously undertaken two separate town house developments with different builders. Unfortunately, on both projects, there were lengthy delays and budget overruns and this time, we wanted more direct control over the overall process particularly cost management and timeline aspects.
We couldn't make up our mind when by pure chance, as I was driving through Hunters Hill, I happened to stop at traffic lights behind a vehicle advertising DirectBuild and that they helped owner builders achieve their goals. I hadn't previously considered the owner builder option.
I took down the contact number and subsequently arranged a meeting with Brendon to explain what we were looking to achieve and find out how DirectBuild could help me. I was familiar with the general building process but lacked technical building skills, a project management framework and trade and suppliers contacts. Brendon took the time to listen to our requirements and walk me through their owner builder services. I was impressed with Brendon and the services DirectBuild offered.
The guidance and support provided by DirectBuild from day one to the end of the building process was first class. As an issue arose, Brendon and his team were there with practical and cost- effective solutions.
My wife and I are exceptionally pleased with our completed home with its high-quality finishes - it is exactly what we wanted. Importantly, we also saved a lot of money by owner building.
I can't thank Brendon and the DirectBuild team enough for the assistance they provided throughout the build.
Certainly, if I build another home, I will do so with confidence because I will have the DirectBuild team behind me.
In fact, I have already recommended DirectBuild's services to several of my friends.
Thanks again and all the best for the future."
