Our 1st build , Very Pleased with the result
We are very happy with our build ( duplex ) the only negative is that there were times were there was a delay and slow procedure during the built.
We heard a lot of nightmare stories from other people at the time in general regarding their builds and experiences with other companies and we were worried we may experience the same road. However we had a pleasant experience , the owner of the company ( Ferntree ) was always contactable and very approachable.
I also must add that pricing was very fair and reasonable regarding additional items.
Just wanted to share the great experience we had building our brand new home with Ferntree Homes
John and his team were always there for us and nothing was ever a problem..
A few times during construction we asked to change a few small things and these were looked
after without fuss.
The overall build was without headache and the final finish more than what we expected.
What ever was needed to be rectified was done so very quickly.
Overall my family and I are so happy in our new home.
I built my home with Ferntree Homes and was very happy with the end result. Our block was a difficult shape but with you wouldn't have known it by the end. The house is a great design and was built to a high standard as far as I was concerned. Their staff are really nice and they always try to give you want you want. I have referred other people to Ferntree and would build with them again.

We worked with and built with Ferntree over 2016-2019.
We’d like to think we’re fairly easy-going. In fact, this is the first negative review we have ever posted online about anything. We also went in with realistic expectations (between our families, we’ve experienced lots of new builds and went out of our way to avoid variations), particularly given we were building a custom designed house at the height of the Sydney construction boom.
In terms of the timeline:
- We demolished our house in Feb 2017 and gave Ferntree access to the site Mar ...
Very Happy with work
I'm happy with the end result despite a few minor hiccups. The finished product was amazing. We built a duplex and understand that we had to wait a few months longer to be completed. The end product has proved to be of high quality. The director, staff and tradies were always helpful. I would recommend Ferntree to any prospective client.
Extremely Happy and going to Build Again
I thought it is about time to write a review about our last home. Time flies and I meant to get around to posting something sooner. We have since sold the home Ferntree Homes built for us and will be looking to build with them again.
Prior to starting our last home we had already built two new homes with other builders. One was a large project builder and and the other was another Custom Home Builder. As we had built before my husband and I both knew exactly what we wanted this time. We needed a Custom Builder to get the detail we wanted, yet ...had to be mindful of our budget. Our home was Custom Designed and it had a fair amount of detail both with internal finishes and facade. One of the things that attracted us to Ferntree was that they were keen to be involved, were prepared to listen to what we wanted, had shown us Custom Built Homes they built before, and most importantly they came in on budget for us. (As an aside, we had them quote our new home plans against our previous builder; we were also happy with their build quality previously and at the start were most likely going to build with them again.) It worked out Ferntree Homes were quite a bit more competitive than our previous Custom Builder and after many discussions we decided to give them a go. At the start I have to say we were nervous because we had such a good build previously and wanted the same again. It was a decision we were pleased with in the end as we created a really lovely home. It wasn't easy and did take a lot of effort but was worth it in the end. There were normal issues like it took bit longer to complete the brickwork stage which was mainly due to there being a fair bit of rain at that time. Once the roof was on it progressed well, and they allowed our Landscapers to work in with them at the end.
A fantastic home, very happy clients
We had Ferntree Homes build our first home and completed it a couple of years ago. Although we recently sold it to move closer to the city (for work purposes) we were extremely happy with the service we received and the quality of the build. The staff at Ferntree Homes were friendly and helpful. They kept us up to date and since we worked in the city and had little time to call in, we appreciated that they took care of most things for us, making the building process efficient and stress-free. There were no major issues and the minor hitches tha...t we had (which were mostly due to the design specifications of the development we were building in) were quickly fixed at the end of the build. The house was straightforward to build and we didn’t make any major changes so the project went quite smoothly. Even though we have now moved, we would have no hesitation in getting Ferntree homes to build our next home when the day comes
