It was the dream house; the forever home and I was looking for a builder who would be as passionate and invested as I was in realising that vision. It was important that the builder’s trades demonstrated pride in their workmanship through the care and commitment to quality of the overall finish of the home.
Pre-start went very smoothly. There was a lot of detail required in ‘putting the house together’ and Trendsetter’s Interior Design Consultant was technically skilled, highly experienced and brought a lot of value to the process. I appreciated the friendly advice, guidance, and direction given.
Armed with such detailed plans and specifications I assumed that actually building the house would be a simple matter of following those ‘instructions’. It didn’t take long to realise that even with great planning there is still a high degree of judgement and practical know-how required in construction. The most valuable part of the Trendsetter process was the regular site visits with the Building Supervisor. It allowed me the opportunity to be involved as the house progressed, query decisions and ask lots of questions. It also enabled me to communicate with the Building Supervisor on a regular basis and to have input along the way where there were alternative options for doings things. I developed a sense of trust in the builder and the process. Issues or concerns were dealt with willingly and resolved in an effort to ensure work was carried out to the highest standard. On site trades were courteous and considerate of the neighbours in keeping noise to a minimum and access around the site clear.
Trendsetter provided a personalised building experience that gave me the chance to be involved in the building of my home. I’ve realised that I couldn’t have done it any other way. The Interior Design Consultant and Building Supervisor were brilliant to work with and I know there were many other talented people in the Trendsetter team who supported them behind the scenes. I’m thrilled with my beautiful new home and look forward to enjoying the space and living the dream.
