Happy and excited about my new home

Let me start by saying- wow! from the get go our sales person Gaurav Sharma was extremely helpful, he designed our home and worked closely with us to get everything we wanted and more. Working closely with the drafting team he came back to us with 4-5 different ideas/plans and with my wife and I being pretty picky Gaurav was completely understanding,patient and more than helpful. highly appreciated and would recommend him to anybody looking at building, he went above and beyond.

Workmanship was great. The final finish was great. The supervisor was awesome. Very happy with it all. I would definitely use Content Living homes again when building. Great work guys appreciate it!
Content Living friendly staff took care of all my concerns and guided me throughout construction. Communication was easy and all my emails were answered in a timely fashion, along with weekly emails received from Shelby updating me on the progress of my house.. It was exciting to find out what was happening on site each week!

I Will definitely recommend Content Living anyone decided to build.
Been in the house now for over 2 weeks now and loving every moment. The journey has not finished yet with a garden to be done and some interior painting.
Thank you Content Living and your incredible staff.

First build

Overall we have been content with the build and workmanship, minus a few trades such as the tiling and paving that fell short. Prior to the slab going down, we had issues related to council regulations, that Content Living's administration could've handled a lot better. This extended the build time quite significantly and was very frustrating. Finally, we believe that there should have been more prompts during the pre start. For example, we forgot to put cold tap plumbing for our fridge into the plans and forgot to specify that we wanted mitred tiles. Had we been prompted, this would have been mutually beneficial.

Excellent job delivered by the best team

The process for building our home was so well handled, no surprises at all. We always know what is going on in relation to paperwork and work onsite and what the next milestone is.
We are really satisfied with building quality and construction timing, it seems we will be able to move into our new house earlier than expected which is great news.
We had issues with 2 suppliers as the floor tiling and the board cabinets that we chose at pre-sale were no longer manufactured by the time the construction started. Content Living handled it very well as we were notified in time and were able to chose from the new tile collection for no extra charge. There were no delays with the building process.
The final cost increased compared to the initial estimated cost due to the upgrades, but that was our choice. At pre-sale we were informed about them and their cost. We received all the information, no hidden cost.
Staff is sincerely friendly, responsive and qualified.

Everything outstanding

From design, pre start and construction we were heard and understood, we did minor changes and costs were also very reasonable. The head office show room was fantastic, full of included items, plus the upgrades, which we only choose a couple because inclusions where of high standards. Would definitely build with Content again

Best home builders in WA

This was my forth house that I've built in WA but my first with content living.
The reason I built with content living was down to price.
I had a lot of extras that I wanted and certain fixtures and fittings.
Most builders could help me but content living got every detail perfect and still beat everyone on price.
As I've built before I knew the main reason for a good home builder was trades and supervisors and everyone I met from beginning to end made building a home an absolute breeze.
My supervisor Matt was fantastic, his communication throughout the build was spot on, also Rocky was another asset to content living as my main worries were having good tradesmen and they definitely delivered the goods. They produced nothing short of a show home for me.

Thank you Content Living

My Dream Came True

I built with Content Living a few years ago now. I've not been a person to use review websites in the past, but have decided to share my experiences with those that do. I wanted to build a home that had been a dream for me, for sometime. I can't believe how well it turned out! To see it all come together with the interaction of the staff and supervisor, being another highlight of the process, my dream finally came true. The area manager was on hand to assist if required and he went above and beyond to satisfy me. Dealing with him was the highlight of my building experience. Nothing was ever too much of a hassle. When the home was ready for me to view at completion, there were almost no issues I could find. When it came time for me to contact them again after living in the home for a few months, due to some minor issues, they arranged these to be rectified without any fuss and the contractor was accommodating with my available timeframes. I would highly recommend Content Living to anyone who wants to make their dream come true also.

Satisfied Customer

This was my first time building with ContentLiving. We were encouraged to try this builder because of the many positive reviews. And I must admit that I never regretted choosing ContentLiving from among a few other builders in the industry. From pre, post and during construction work, while there were a few but minor hitches which is quite to be expected, all our questions and complaints were attended to relatively promptly. The build quality and workmanship was of relatively good standard. There were no cost overruns. All in, my building experience with ContentLiving has been a good one.

Good Home at a good price.(Brigadoon)

From pre start to finish the house went very smooth. Always updated through the build, very happy with the workmanship and finished product. We had a couple minor issues but after discussing it with our supervisor Andrew he got on to it and resolved. I would recommend Content to anyone as you will get a good home built at a good price.

Excellent quality build

We are extremely happy with our new house in The Vines. From start to finish the process and the people I have dealt with have been fantastic.
Our story from the beginning is we were originally signed up with a builder from the BGC group. After 6 months and still no final plans we decided to cut our losses and start again.
We actually looked at an established house to buy as we liked the layout and all the specs. We didn’t buy the house however we found out who built it “Content Living”.
I contacted Content Living and found the sales rep very honest and experienced (Dean). We had our own design and he was able to assist with ideas and layout of the house. I was impressed with the inclusions of the diamond range. After changing builders we only ended up about 6 weeks behind (Which took the other builder 6 months!)
I found the whole process honest and transparent. Pre-start ladies were very knowledgeable and assisted us with our choices. For us, this is hopefully our last house so we included everything we wanted. They were flexible in choices of products and were also willing to provide costings for appliances such as ovens/rangehoods etc which were not included in their specs.
Our supervisor Andrew was brilliant. He is a reasonably young fella but he definitely knows his stuff. Nothing was too much trouble for him. If there was an issue he resolved it to our satisfaction.
Our liaison person (name escapes me) was fantastic. The communication was excellent and progress updates were provided regularly.
This is the fifth time I have built and I can honestly say this was the best experience and the end result is a top quality house.
I have had numerous trades/friends at our house and everyone comments on the quality of build.
We are just in the process of having the 6 month maintenance completed by Content Living and this is only minor cosmetic issues.
I would definitely recommend this company to anyone who wants a top quality build for a decent price.

Solid Builder

Apart of some hick-ups in the planning and negotiating stage,which partly could be attributed to our luck of experience, We can not fault "Content Living"
All work was done on time and up to standard with no extra cost.

Excellent experience throughout with Content living!!!!

From start of the building design with Ajay to our last meet with Shelby for key handover. the process went smoothly and communication throughout the building process was excellent. Recommend new customers to see Ajay for your house design, we did not feel the need to shop around. All demands were met and we love our new home :)

Built our first home with no stress at all

From day one we met our initial consultant Mark and he helped us in every possible way to decide on the design and all little things involved in building house. Very quick response to all enquiries we made. Everyone we met and dealt with in this company had a incredible knowledge and very helpful. They were always ahead of time and got the keys way earlier then expected. Will definitely recommend to my friends.

Best value for money in the WA building industry.

I have built 5 houses. By far, this was the least problematic build, and the best value for money. We shopped around through 9 or 10 builders, comparing specification and house size against cost. I'm the kind of guy who analyses things to death. I had everything spreadsheet. You honestly can't beat Content for value. My wife and I were extremely fussy with our plan and specs. We got a long way into a plan and Content Living brought out a special offer. We decided to start again with a new base plan. They were very supportive and their high level of support didn't change at all.

Questions & Answers

Is your lifetime structural warranty 25 years or true lifetime? Secondly is it transferable like other builders offer?
No answers

Hello Gino, we have built 2 houses with Content Living in the past and are now looking to build again, do you offer any incentives to past customers? Thank you. Jo

Good morning, Thank you for considering us again to build a home for you. Excellent question as you would already know our price, product, quality and inclusions are market leading. As a multiple repeat client I will personally oversee the process to ensure you get the best deal. Yours sincerely Gino Bastow Managing Director

We built our home with you in 2003. How long is the lifetime structural guarentee valid for? The reason I ask is we too have huge cracks in walls and the corness is coming away in a few rooms droping plaster on the floor. Thanks carole

I’m sorry that’s something you need to ask Content living about. i don’t think their is a lifetime structural warranty as many factors can play the part, eg buildings being build around you or what type of land you have built on etc etc. I’m sure if you just ask them they will give you an answerGood morning, Please email all of your contact details and the address of the property to service@contentliving.com.au. We will make contact with you directly and arrange an inspection. Thank you, Content Living Service Team.Hi Carole, Just wondering how did you go with the inspection? Thanks
