I have been in my beautiful fully renovated home in Woolgoolga for close on a year, and it is like waking up on holidays every day thanks to ‘Build by the Sea’. I decided to make the Sea change from the country to be closer to family.

Plans were drawn up by my architect to renovate an older house on a tricky site, then the Search began to find a local builder who could accommodate me with a complex renovation, whilst I was out of town and some distance away.

Build by the Sea and builder Sam Broomfield exceeded all my expectations. The building process was stress free from the initial meeting with Sam until handover and beyond.

Often decisions were made successfully over the phone and I received weekly updates on progress often with accompanying photos.

Sam’s outstanding attributes are his calm, friendly and professional manner, an eye for detail and his endless contacts in the building industry.

No problem was unsolvable, and there were many! With Sam’s team of capable tradesman and a very talented foreman I am the proud owner of a home boasting high quality workmanship and outstanding finishes.

This was a difficult renovation and Sam managed each issue quickly with my best interests at heart. He even gave up a day with his team to help me move in!

Any minor issues that needed attention once I had settled in were addressed without delay, all part of the amazing service.

It is a year down the track and Sam is a regular visitor.

If you are looking for a builder that you can trust and who can deliver outstanding results, Sam is your man!
