Creating an additional income source from the existing family home was the aim in this Auxiliary ...
It would be rare to describe drainage as beautiful, but with our extension by Aaron building we have found ourselves showing our friends under our house as often as admiring our new rooms. It is this attention to detail and getting the foundations right that sets Aaron Building apart. We know that we now have a home that not only looks stunning but will also last a lifetime.
Craig was instrumental in working with us through every detail to make sure that we were building a functional space which is also in keeping with the look and feel of a character home. On the jobsite Darren was professional, considerate and had keen eye for detail which meant issues were often identified and resolved long before they became problems. We are very happy with the exceptional workmanship and care we received from Aaron building and would recommend them to anyone contemplating a new build or extension.
The whole family was really impressed with Craig’s work and so were our neighbours, who also engaged Aaron Building in their own projects. Craig also constructed our front and back decks which look terrific and not only added value to our house but also gave us two great spaces for relaxing and entertaining. Our last job was getting rid of an old air-conditioner so the hole in the brick wall had to be patched and Craig helped us source and choose the right colour bricks so the outside wall matches perfectly.
Craig’s company came to us highly recommended but we would like to add that in our experience, he also goes the extra mile, which makes him a real asset as a builder. We were glad we chose Aaron building, because as well as doing a professional job they also gave good advice and were friendly, courteous and cooperative throughout. We will obviously recommend Craig and Aaron Building to anyone wanting any design/construction job completed to perfection.
Craig Riddle of Aaron Building has built 3 houses/units for us over the past 6 years. The reason we have chosen Craig ahead of other builders is that he provides the specified product at the agreed price with minimal supervision. As a busy professional, I was able to rely on Craig's desire to provide value for his clients. Craig provides value by appropriately staging delivery of materials and by minimising waste, and by only using tradesmen who match the standard of building which he himself upholds. Craig first worked for us in 1996, when he built a granny annex and converted a double garage to two bedrooms with ensuite. We chose Craig because of his references at interview and his reasonable quotation. The work was completed on time, and with excellent workmanship. When we moved and later decided to build and renovate, we had no hesitation in appointing Craig to do the work, and again were pleased with the value for money provided.
I selected Aaron Building on the basis of their excellent references. I was invited to inspect some of their work and found them to be courteous, honest and genuinely interested in my needs, which I found reassuring. We are extremely pleased with the new extension to our house, which includes a bedroom with ensuite and a rumpus room. The finished quality and presentation of the extension exceeded our expectations. The rumpus, originally designed for the children, has quickly become the most popular room in the house and is used by everyone. The extention blends in very well and looks part of the original house. We therefore have no hesitation in recommending Craig of Aaron Building to any family considering renovations or extensions to their house.
Aaron Building have now completed two significant projects at our family home. The first project was a separate 190m2 building which we have called "The Pavilion". It is a great entertaining area for the family and for my teenage children, which sits adjacent to our pool. The project had some interesting foundation challenges as well as requiring a lot of attention to detail. The second project, which we have called "The Conservatory", was an 80m2 sun-filled extension to the rear of our home. It included a super elevated window structure, some complex re-arrangement of roof trusses and an additional wrap around veranda. Craig and his son, Ken, at Aaron Building completed both of these projects with a high degree of workmanship and professionalism. Both projects came within budget and where there were some minor variations due to unforeseen circumstances, these were discussed in detail and agreed upon before any additional work was undertaken. With an engineering background, I am pedantic when it comes to workmanship and finishes. I could not fault the Aaron Building team in this regard, and would describe their attention to detail as ‘thorough'. This is a rare trait these days. Subcontractors used on the projects were carefully chosen by Craig and were also of a very high standard. Any minor defects were quickly rectified without question. We are very happy with the final result of our "Pavilion" and "Conservatory". I have no hesitation in recommending Aaron Building for "stress-free" home projects.
