The never ending story with a happy ending
We built last year & took possession on Xmas eve of a beautiful new home. In general the workmanship was very good. We did have minor issues around some of the completed work & we had to follow this up ourselves but the completed product is impressive. The site foreman Alphonse was terrific in communicating with us about the progress of the build & the staff at ferntree are all very experienced & friendly which made them good to deal with. They did work very hard to get the house completed for Xmas which we didn't really appreciate enough at th...e time. Like any build we suffered with weather & bureaucratic delays as well as a shortfall of funds due to a lack of contingency. The owner, John is a very reasonable guy & after finalising the outstanding issues I would recommend Ferntree to friends & family in future.
Ready to Enjoy
We are very happy with our new house on the Central Coast. We designed it ourselves to meet our family's specific requirements. Other builders we spoke with wouldn't build what we wanted. While it took a long time to achieve DA and start work, the process wasnt helped by the introduction of strict new bushfire regulations which suppliers, sub-contractors and the builder had to understand and comply with. There were weeks when there was no activity on site. Some of the special materials used to meet bushfire regulations had to come from Melbou...rne and overseas. Also our location involved a lot of travel for the Sydney-based tradesmen. That said, the quality of work from all trades was excellent and the tradesmen were all very helpful and co-operative in dealing with changes to plan. A new supervisor took over well into the project and he made a big difference. We are very pleased with and proud of our beautiful new house and thank Ferntree - [names removed] who were all good to deal with . If we could give a 4.5 star review we would have. Quality of work
