We had lived at 19A Garde Street, Centenary Heights, Toowoomba for nearly 13 years. We liked our location and our many visitors enjoyed staying with us in our “little cottage” with all its dark atmospheric timber floors and ceilings.
However, since retirement (7 years ago) we have developed hobbies and interests that require more room and light. During this time, we looked around for another house but nothing met our requirements – most of them needing some renovation and their location was often less than ideal.
We finally concluded that we should stay where we are and renovate. We met with several builders discussing our concept drawings. Smith & Sons Toowoomba East provided us with the most positive evaluation and worked on our concept to ensure we had the best functional and cost effective plans. Most importantly, the plans included a carport to accommodate our caravan and car. We settled on a fixed contract price.
Our hopes for a beautiful home were fully realized by the Smith & Son, Toowoomba East team. The project progressed in a professional and happy environment. Communication between project management, building staff and us was always timely, clear and informative. There were no problems during the build that were not worked on in a positive and practical manner. The workmanship was exemplary and a credit to the company and it’s subcontractors. All new fixtures and fittings are fully functional and of good quality.
During the renovation, we requested extra features to enhance our home.
For example, a wall module containing a gas fireplace. The carpenters very happily accommodated us with this change even though it was quite a task incorporating a vertical flue in a non-hazardous position.
For reasons above and that the project was completed within the contracted timeframe we are very happy to recommend Smith & Sons, Toowoomba East under the licence of VDK Brothers Pty Ltd.
