Maylands – New Residential
The first house I designed and followed through construction to completion in Perth while I was on my own was this three bedroom home with the Master Bedroom downstairs on a tight battle axe block.
After taking about a year to get it designed due to complications with the company I was working with I presented this project, now working on my own, and the comments from the clients were “We expected to change something and there was nothing to change” They built the whole thing as it was and I learned firsthand the fun of working with builders who were liars.
We sacked them after it was closed in and hired a new builder who understood construction and completed the work fixing the problems left by the previous builder who did not know how to build at all.
The glass landing at the entranceway had to be redone as the first builders didn’t know what they were doing. Neither did the builders themselves as they didn’t even read the plans. 3D drawings didn’t seem to help at all. According to one builder, I interviewed for the job 80% of the builders in Perth are dishonest. I have found that to be true and now have honest builders.
These clients were so pleased with the design work they came back once they sold this house and looked at developing another property adding to their new house to make it a comfortable house to match their lifestyle.
