When I chose Steve and his team to build my house I said ‘I want this to be a great experience’ because people had warned me how often the building relationship can go wrong. Steve delivered on both the building and the experience.
I have enjoyed coming to see the house progressing, watching the concrete pour in the gale force wind and rain, the rammed earth emerging from the ground, the beauty of the design matching the beauty of the environment. Steve has trained more than 10 apprentices through to their final qualifications, and I was proud to have apprentices on site alongside the experienced men.
Steve was always good to deal with and accommodated with a smile the changes I sought after seeing the building take shape. I am not good at reading from plans and imagining how it will feel, so that really mattered to me. Some of the changes were suggested by the tradesmen and I appreciated their involvement, and that it seemed to matter to them that I liked the house they built for me.
I did not think I would be able to have a house built. It was a daunting and exhilarating experience and Steve and his team gave me every reason to be happy with my choice of builder. The house was built within time and within budget. I love my house, and I am grateful to the men who made my dream come true.
During 2007, after having experienced personal challenges I was seeking a cathartic project to provide me with focus and direction. I purchased a seaside paddock at Sandy Point in July of that year with the belief that I would be able to create a haven for myself and my family.
Steve Vuillermin made that a reality.
My architect Wendy Nettle began the design process. The brief was simple; the design was to compliment the environment and must embrace an organic feel. By December 2008 the plans had been approved and we were ready to begin. Steve commenced building in January 2009. He not only played the role of builder but also project manager and advisor.
Steve’s understanding of what was important to me matched with his excellent communication skills ensured that the building process from the start to completion was an exciting and trouble free event. I had my certificate of occupancy by November 2009. I had a beautifully finished haven and so began a new chapter in my life. The workmanship from all involved was second to none.
I am grateful to Steve and his team for making my dream a reality.
I have employed builders to do a number of residential projects and I rate Steve Vuillermin very highly. Nothing is too much trouble for Steve and he has the ability to make things happen and to properly finish a job. So thanks Steve and we love the house you built for us!
Hi Steve just wanted to pen a few words to thank you for our new beach house. Jo and I appreciate the all hard work and attention to detail you and the team put into it. From start to finish the home was methodically constructed by professionals of the highest quality – at all times they were insightful, easy to approach and eager to please. Even though we were not ‘local’ to the build I felt confident and comfortable discussing issues over the phone and then allowing you to action these with positive results.
Again thank you so much and please be assured Jo and I would be more than happy to recommend you and your team top anyone wanting to build a high quality home.
Steve Vuillermin built our house in Walkerville South 12 years ago. He had a great team of tradesmen on board and maintained a schedule that ensured the building was completed on time. His standards of workmanship remained high throughout the project and the quality of work is evident today. There are no annoying bits that aren’t quite right to live with as everything was built properly and any problems were fixed during construction. Steve’s a great guy and this has been evident over the years since the house was built. When we’ve asked him to improve or add features to the house he has approached such ‘minor’ works with the same high standards and enthusiasm that he did in the initial construction. I wholeheartedly recommend Steve Vuillermin as a quality, professional builder, man of integrity and all round great bloke.
