We love our GJ Gardner Home

We absolutely love our new house. While it was being built GJ Gardner kept us up to date with the progress. Everything went according to schedule. We had a couple of minor issues however the quality of the workmanship was excellent. GJ Gardner Homes are a very professional organisation and we would definitely build with the team at Tweed Heads again.

A really great home

From the beginning, the plan we chose suited our block of land perfectly. Their sales staff knew their business, as did every other employee, including the subbies, and their supervisors. The end product exceeded our expectations. The original quote never varied. Everyone at G.J. Gardner's Batemans Bay, did an out standing job and we are really really happy.

Thank you for the 5-star review! The team at Batemans Bay are extremely passionate about building quality homes and delivering an enjoyable experience. Thank you for building with G.J. Gardner Homes. Enjoy your new home!

On a scale of 1 to 10 I give them a 15 :)

With some 45 years of building and development experience to go on, this construction could not have been more stress-free, a rarity in the world of construction. The quality of the workmanship was and is excellent, the design extremely pleasant and comfortable, the entire process was a joy from inception to completion - obviously - I HIGHLY recommend and endorse the ENTIRE team at GJ Gardner in Tweed Heads. The very few items needing some additional attention, and they were few, were handled immediately with the utmost attention and support. The house came in on budget and as promised time-wise. Everyone I dealt with was fabulous and highly professional... and to add icing on the cake - it was fun!

Absolutely amazing first home build experience with the Wodonga Office

I would like to thank Bruce Stewart and the rest of the team at GJ Gardner Wodonga for making my first building process smooth and hassle free. Bruce was fantastic, he went out of his way to accomodate any change requests and helpful with suggestions during the quote and design process. The build quality and workmanship was amazing and the build was finished well before the expected time. From the very first moment I stepped into the sales office, through to walking into my newly completed home at handover, I knew I had chosen the best to build my home. I would highly recommend the Wodonga office to anyone wanting to build their dream home.

We got the beautiful home we wanted.

We are extremely pleased with our new home including the standard of workmanship and the quality of inclusions. The assistance of Rick and his team, especially Scott and Kylie prior to and during the build was very much appreciated as has been the after sales service and support.

Beautiful living

The process of building with GJ Gardner was so much easier than I thought it would be. We were dealing with people that were friendly and caring about our situation. They were very good at their job and any changes to the plans were no problem and when it came to picking colours and fittings, once you picked the brick colour they made it all just flow on effortlessly. We had a couple of slight changes through the build process (nothing structural or major) and they made it feel like it was no big deal.
The workmanship is fantastic and we were able to use some local tradies which we appreciated. There were a couple of slight issues with the management of tradies and time but sometimes the tradies sorted themselves out as they knew each other and communicated well together. Any other problems or if I felt unsure of anything I just rang the office and he eased my mind instantly.
We nearly feel guilty as to how easy our build was.

Accessible Dream Home

After visiting a G J Gardner display home in Casuarina we loved their higher class finishes, great design ideas and great workmanship compared to other project home companies and with some excellent recommendations by several family members and friends and a very strict budget we decided to go with G J Gardners. Our build wasn't going to be easy as we were building a dual living home on a pretty tricky block, it had to be completely accessible for a wheelchair, there was bushfire regulations and a tree protection zone that G J Gardners had to work around. From start to finish we were so happy, Kane Munroe was incredible in the design phase and tackling issues we had with Council, we had a vision and a design we needed to achieve so our adult disabled son could have his independence, his own living space and somewhere to call his own so both wings had to be completely accessible. Kane made the whole process so easy for us but not only Kane the whole GJ Gardner team from the Managers/Owners through to office staff and the amazing construction team run by Dave we couldn't fault them. Workmanship was excellent and besides a few areas that needed touchups with paintwork and minor touchups there was no dramas. We were in ahead of schedule and on budget besides some extra concrete works we chose to do towards the end of the project. We are so incredibly happy and not in our wildest dreams did we think our home was going to be so beautiful, so liveable, so cool and breezy and so accessible. We would and have recommended GJ Gardner to lots of people. Thank You GJ Gardner Tweed Heads for our magnificent Dream Home.

Love our new home - Thankyou GJ Gardner Hobart

GJ Gardner Hobart – We are very pleased with our new home.
Preparing to move from Queensland to Tasmania we needed to have a top-quality builder we could trust to construct our new home.
We chose GJ Gardner Hobart as our builder and visited their office a number of times. Each visit was simply amazing as we were given the time to make all the arrangements for the design and selection of all colours for our home. Meg, Lilian and staff were always very helpful and supportive at each visit.
On arrival in Tasmania the slab for the house was ready and our workshop shed erected.
We met our building supervisor Damian who gave our building dates for progress of construction and finish of our home.
The construction and finish of our home was well managed by Damian. He was in control of all aspects of managing the various contractors working on our home to have a trouble free top quality finish. Ludek (Owner) visited a number of times during construction and was always helpful and supportive.
GJ Gardner’s attention to detail with Damian as our supervisor was excellent and we are very happy with our new home.
Our maintenance period was managed in a professional way with only minor adjustments required as the building settled.
We are very happy with our new home and would highly recommend GJ Gardner Hobart to anyone who is looking to build their home.

Exceptional from start to finish

Thank you to GJ Gardner Tweed Heads & Ballina. They didn’t simply build us a “house”...they built us a “home”. From the very first moment we stepped into the sales office, through to walking into our newly completed home at handover, we knew we had chosen the best to build our home. There are many points of difference between GJ Gardner Tweed Heads and Ballina and others. Being able to customise our home without hassle or additional cost was fantastic. The communication between all parties was faultless. Every decision we had made in the sales office filtered right through to the supervisor and each of the trades. It is evident that every trade involved in our build had a sense of pride in their work. Our building supervisor went above and beyond to ensure that quality and finish were never compromised. Any issues were quickly identified and resolved - usually before we were even aware of them. There were no surprises in the final cost either, thanks to the quoting system they use, every detail and cost was accounted for before we even began the build. I would highly recommend the team at GJ Gardner Tweed Heads and Ballina - they were exceptional!

Love my new home

From start to finish the whole building process was made easy with the help and guidance of the staff at Warrnambool’s office. Erin and Chris were great and covered all basis of my needs, desires and wants in my new home. The building quality was on point, and supervisor was always available for updates. The build was finished well before the expected time. The estimated cost was true to what the end costing was. Extremely happy with the team in Warrnambool. Thank you.

A new found light on the hill

Gj gardner did an exceptional job of accomodating our design requirements and have built us a fabulous house on the hill that maximises light through high ceilings and windows and door as well as the orientation on the block. The build quality was very good. Like most builds, plan for overruns (ours about 10%)as you get to the finished stages. The reality of these is best thought through at the Plan stage to control budgets. The builders kept us up to speed on the progress at all times. The finish quality was excellent. Some minor issues to fix were dealt with promptly and compared to 3 prior builds GJ were excellent.

Extremely happy with our first build with the Wantirna office

I wish to thank Steve and Rebecca at the Wantirna branch for making our building experience with GJ Gardiner smooth and hassle free. From the minute we engaged these guys to build our two units in Ferntree Gully, they walked us through the building process and were there every step of the way guiding us from start to finish. Fantastic communication, the build went through on time and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to family and friends.

What a joke over 18 months since hand over & we still have severe water hammer!

I want to warn people about GJ Gardener sunshine coast North office! We built with them & got our keys over 18 months ago & there has been problems ever since! first it was the dodgy fence which they actually fixed but now the gate is nearly falling off & the post footing is cracked & wobbly.. The water hammer has been here since day 1 & now after 4 times of trying to fix it their response is to shrug their shoulders & say too bad!

Hi Dave, thanks for your comments - I believe the fence defects have all been rectified. Regarding the occasional water knocking you've reported, we most certainly haven't shrugged our shoulders...we've sent our plumber out about 4 to 6 times, several those times you couldn't reproduce the fault, and once you could we've replaced a number valves and components at our cost in attempting to identify the cause. This is not a cheap exercise but we've been committed to fixing it. Last time you stated that you were going to get an independent inspection done yourself, but refused for our plumber or supervisor to attend at the same time. We're simply trying to help you resolve this but still awaiting your independent inspection report to take the next steps, at which time we’ll happily adjust the gate while we are there. Any questions please do contact the office again.

GJ Whitsunday’s perfect in every way

Who said building a home is stressful....? They certain didn’t build with GJ that’s for sure.
The whole team at GJ Whitsundays are fabulous, friendly & professional, we couldn’t of asked for better builders to help make our dreams become our home. We are stoked with the end results of our build, nothing was ever a problem right down to small tweaks.
Highly recommend anyone wanting to build to definitely call in and see the team

Stress free

It was spot on, what I was quoted was what I paid. There was no variance , very happy.
They kept me up to date with where the build was at, with emails and photos.
Jade from the Wodonga office was extremely helpful and guided me through the whole process, she made it so easy for me .
I would absolutely build with GJ Gardner again, no doubts at all.

Absolutely amazing first home build experience

We had an absolutely amazing first build experience with GJ Point Cook. From start to finish they were always professional, easy going and accommodating to our change requests and helpful with suggestions during quote, design and colour selection process. The build quality and workmanship was second to none.
We loved that there was a good line of communication throughout and the weekly progress updates during the build with photos was one we looked forward to. We have already recommended GJ Point Cook to a number of our family and friends and will ALWAYS recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat.THANK YOU GJ for our beautiful home!

Above and beyond what we had expected!

From the very first minute we stepped into the display home with dreams and ideas to the last moment when we were handed the keys, GJ Gardner went above and beyond to help us design an amazing home. The team were more than able to accommodate our needs. We were so surprised (and pleased) with the many options for each feature in the home and we only upgraded a few minor things as a matter of luxury. The entire team were hardworking, integral and motivated. They prepared us every step of the way and delivered a high quality home. We definitely made the right choice when selecting GJ Gardner as our builder. We love your work! Thankyou GJ Gardner Tamworth.

Thank You G.J. Gardner Newcastle

We built our first home with G.J. Gardner Newcastle and were so pleased that we decided to build our 'forever' home with them. We are beyond happy. The entire team have been so helpful and communicative. Specially we wanna give big thanks to the operations manager. She was amazing through whole process of the building and even after the completion of the building. We are also happy with the quality of our new home, and the workmanship that has gone into it. I definitely made the right decision going with G.J Gardener Newcastle and would not hesitate to recommend them.

Questions & Answers

Does anyone have advice on how to get GJ Gardner to actually build your house? We are 12 months in and only have a frame. The house was meant to be finished in November. We are given excuse after excuse as to why but the reality is that someone is on site at best a day a week. We are running out of ideas and seriously contemplating using local media contacts in the hope something will actually get done!! This had been the most disappointing and stressful experience.

Hi, I'm very sorry to hear this. Which G.J. Gardner are you building with and what area are you building?Hi There, we are eager to assist you here and are troubled by your comment. If you could let me know which region you are building I will be able to investigate and assist you further. Kind Regards, General Manager G.J. Gardner Homes Australia.Can you please provide me with a number to call to discuss this?

Hi do you provide concrete floors both downstairs and upstairs? Also where is the closest project homes site from Sydney CBDs? Generally how long does it take to complete a 2 storey house? Thanks Aida [email removed]
2 answers
Hi Aida, Definitely concrete floor downstairs, but generally timber and/or steel structural frame upstairs, though we can do concrete floor upstairs if required. Sydney West for the display home. Thirty to forty weeks depending on the design complexity. Regards, G.J. Gardner Homes Head OfficeGj will tell you it will take about 9 months. That was what we were told. We are building with them currently and have hit the 12 month mark with only a frame to show for it. I am sure some people get a house built in this time but please be aware there is no guarantee of this and there is little you can do when they take substantially longer
