Because we could not be on site regularly, and having renovated previous houses ourselves, we were a bit apprehensive about giving so much control of a project to someone else, so the selection of a builder was a crucial decision.

Reputation in the local community was an important factor in our choice of Sam Broomfield and this proved to be a reliable indicator.

Sam has a great team with all the right connections, and without exception we found the designers, suppliers and tradies very skilled and helpful. They had a great working relationship with Sam and held him in high regard.

Sam kept us updated in detail at all stages, and adapting to various changes was ‘Not a problem’. The result of all this is high quality workmanship and a ‘new’ house with far less stress than imagined.
