“I take photos of their work to show other people how it’s supposed to be done”

Sid, Structural Engineer

“Pete was meticulous with his work on our deck, ensuring that we received the best possible service and product. We would use him again and highly recommend him to anyone we know”

Penny, Client

“We have used Pete’s services on two occasions and would have no hesitation in calling on him again. He is meticulous with his work and seeks to meet his clients’ needs precisely. He is trustworthy and honest and seeks to minimise disruption. Pete is excellent on the communication front and kept us fully informed of work dates etc. We are happy to endorse both him and his work without reservation”

Des & Alison, Clients

“[Pete’s work] is the first time since I’ve been working as an engineer, that some of the structural elements have been done how I’ve asked”

Michelle, Footing Engineer

“Pete initially built a pitched roof veranda at the front of our home. We were so impressed with the quality that we have asked him back three more times. He has built a carport, a pergola over the granny flat entrance and a pergola at the rear of our home. I recommend Pete to friends and family. You can be assured it will be a professional product at a great price” 

Jeff, Client

“We recently had a pantry unit retro fitted to our kitchen and are so pleased with the outcome. Pete is great to deal with. He is a great communicator, well priced and takes pride in completing the job to a high standard. Thanks so much for a job well done.” 

Kelly, Client

“When we work on [Pete’s] jobs, the frames seem a lot more solid than everyone else’s. It’s like they’re nailed together properly” 

Scott, Electrical contractor

“Pete seems to have a real natural flare for building, he seems to just get it”
