HOUSES ARE BUILT WITH STUFF – HOMES ARE BUILT WITH CARE

THANKS BEAUMONDE FOR BUILDING OUR “HOME” !!

If there is something like Dream Home – ours is truly one of those… Ours is a very unique story – we have been renovating for so many years and have extended and renovated over ten houses… we finally decided to build our own home… we had the design in our mind, we knew what we wanted – but it was to be converted to reality… and who else could have done it better than Beaumonde Homes….

We have occasionally heard people talk about their testing experiences with builders – in our opinion it all comes down to self-clarity of what you want and ensuring that you relay your needs to the builder as minutely and clearly as practical. Any “false” experience during the built is always a product of lack of common understanding.

We are so glad for two things – (1) right from the onset we knew exactly what we want; (2) our fate guided us through to the right builder who could convert our dream to reality!! We would certainly call out that Beaumonde was successful in delivering such a beautiful home, ONLY because of the people who we dealt with – it makes a whole lot of difference as to who we are dealing with and their commitment to the profession… Any builder who works on process – system – or rudimentary procedures would never be able to get your home to fruition! In case of Beaumonde it’s the people that made the difference throughout…

Mark Weldon is rightfully titled a “design consultant” (shouldn’t be called a sales consultant). He is the one who opened the door for us to become positive about Beaumonde! He is the perfect first person to meet at Beaumonde and take your project from concept to design!! He patiently worked with us to finalise the design and work through our extensive list of requirements, providing us options and choices and guiding us to the final design…. Having discussion with Mark throughout the costing phase and design finalisation up to the contract stage, gave us confidence that our money is going to be right hands… Mark enabled us to keep control of the selections and items that meant the most to us, including the options to secure a good price and deal for those for us to supply… many builders do not allow this (or make it too difficult to make this happen)…

Tamlin from Prince Design is an exceptional interior designer with great eye for detail and contemporary designs that will last the test of time. She worked with us to make all selections and colours appropriate for our home. She was there at hand for advice and support all the way to the end…. Great work Tamlin!

As the project entered the contract phase, Beaumonde did face challenges with the “apparent” shortfall in their design staff which may be caused by timing of many projects maturing to the design phase – however they were swift on site.

During construction Gorgi and Paul were the pillars and handled every element of the construction to a high quality. The one thing Beaumonde can be very proud of is the selection of their subcontractors who deliver the quality that Beaumonde prides in… They are exceptionally skilled and work so well gelled with each other and I am sure time and again they deliver the best and move on – never probably able to appreciate their product that will forever be the pride of the owners of the house. For us the people whom we interfaced with included the bricklayer and plasterers (a highly composed and efficient team), Rob Pillington (Tiler – amazing work with wet area tiling!), Gavin (Latrobe cabinets – what a quality work throughout – we even got Gavin to do more cabinet work for us looking at the quality) Ryan (Rizlec electricals), Rameen (Painting), Marty (carpenter), and above all Premium Stones (who did the extensive stone work in our kitchen and all wet areas. We have certainly missed a lot of people – but their every smiling faces and cheerful attitude has etched a permanent positive image on us! Our tiles were supplied by Trend Ceramic and Malaga Tiling and the house and fie place including front façade was tiled by Malaga tiles to perfection.

We had hired an independent inspector to monitor the build and he had such a rave review of the quality of work that all the contractors did on site. For any minor observations our inspector made, Beaumonde was swift at addressing them without making a fuss of it.

In addition, Beaumonde put us in touch with other suppliers such as Jarrod (Dixon Concrete) who did an exceptional work of our exposed aggregate in our driveway and front courtyard.

Throughout the built, there were occasions where we wanted flexibility to deal with our preferences and choices and Beaumonde’s staff were exceptional in providing us with choices and enabling appropriate selections that delivered to a high-quality finish! Andrew Neil and Dean Smith assisted us during this phase.

Karren (whom we didn’t get to meet in person yet) handled so many of our selection queries during the last phase of construction, oozed confidence and it was always comfortable to talk to her, even though we may have been anxious with things at time – what an excellent performer Karren….

On reflection, having met many builders and visited numerous display homes, when we sit back and reflect on what we received, we have doubts if anyone could match the quality and price that we got for the job that we have done with Beaumonde!! All this was possible only because of the people who make up the complete team at Beaumonde – so guys hang on to these exceptional people and keep the great customer service on!

We are so glad about our decision of having gone with Beaumonde and after our build we can surely say that we will go again with the team that Beaumonde put up – great job folks – we look forward to enjoying our home for some generations…

Many thanks guys
