Living the dream.
I have known about GJ Gardner for many years having lived in Nth Qld where the company originated and they were very popular. Now living in Cape Jaffa we decided to build with them. Our consultant, Chris, was very patient and guided us through every aspect of the building. It was a pleasure to work with him. I was impressed with management as in choosing the tradespeople. Rod selected the best of them and after hearing from other people we found that they had very good reputations in the area therefore the workmanship was of a high standard. Our house was difficult to build at times with the inclement weather but the tradespeople handled it professionally and with a high degree of safety. The framework of the house was explained to us by Rod about the double strength thus giving us confidence with the extreme weather at times that our house will be safe. Overall we are extremely happy with the final product. The finishing touches are above average and our home is very comfortable and a pleasure to live in. The final cost came in as expected which we were very happy with.
Excellent. Can’t fault GJ Gardner homes
The whole build process from start to almost finish has been smooth and stress free, the work being done is absolutely fantastic and up to standards. This is my first time building a house or owning a property and from the beginning I’ve felt comfortable with GJ Gardner leading me the way, they’ve been supportive, informative and really looked after me throughout the build.
I come to GJ Gardner to build my dream home as the cost was well above and beyond any other quotes I had received elsewhere, everything I wanted in a home was possible with these guys. Final contract price was great and I now have everything I ever wanted in my new home. We are still 5 weeks from completion but I have so much faith that everything will still go smooth from here on out.
Thank you GJ Gardner homes for being the builders I can trust.

Our Perfect First Build!
It was our first time building and we found GJ Gardner Naracoorte/ Mount Gambier to be incredibly helpful. They were able to accomodate all of our ideas whilst suggesting new ones and able to fit a plan around our needs and within budget. Rod and the team were continually keeping us updated with any changes or questions to make sure that it was exactly what we wanted. When changes were made they were actioned within the day. We absolutely love our new home and can't thank them enough for our perfect first build.
Very Happy with our New Home
We have been living in our new home for around three months now and couldn't be happier. When we first went to Rod & Meg in Naracoorte with our own plans, they were nothing but accommodating in seeing them through to the end. They were also very price competitive and their customer service and follow up was exceptional compared to other builders we have dealt with.
There was several times during the build that we changed our mind (and some of the plan) but it was never too hard for them to help us. It was great to have Rod's knowledge and advice during the build and Meg's assistance with selections. Of course there were times when something didn't go according to the plan or a tradie didn't do their job as we had envisioned but once they were notified, GJ Gardner Naracoorte always rectified the problem in a professional and timely manner. Meg never failed to communicate with us if there was any price variation and researched different selections for us when requested, which meant there were no surprises at the end of the build regarding costings. We are very happy with the overall quality of our house and the first class finishes. We would definitely recommend Rod & Meg at GJ Gardner in Naracoorte.
Exactly what we wanted.
From the beginning of our build GJ Gardner Naracoorte were extremely helpful, they were accommodating to all of our ideas and showed their years of experience providing us with ideas and options we hadn't thought of.
Our house is amazing, the quality is fantastic, which we expected, between the regular site checks by Rod an the very frequent visits made by me. A special mention to their carpenter Tim whose workmanship was exemplary, Donna's electrical also did a fantastic job and were great to work with as were Custom Kit Kitchens.
All issues that arose during the construction where addressed promptly with a resolution easily found. We have been in our house for 2 months now, any issues I have mentioned to GJ have been promptly passed onto the appropriate trades to follow up.
Fantastic, very friendly and easy!
It was our First time building we found them very helpful and very easy. Talked us through everystage. I was pregnant so pushed build so we could be in there on time before baby was due. Always in contact with my self and husband. They were just fantastic and made out building experience a pleasurable one. We would highly recommend G.J Gardeners to any new builders.
We have been in our house for a bit over a month now and the entire experience with Gj Gardner was excellent and fantastic. They provided timely information and excellent customer services, and very helpful with any inquiries that we had. The entire experience was pretty much stressless and gave us nothing to worry about. And the follow up service has also been excellent

A house we called home from day1
In 2013 we first walked in to the GJ Gardner Naracoorte office and was welcomed by the friendly staff. We were surprised by the amount of "ready to go" home packages available and the good price that goes with them as well. On top of that we were very glad to know that we could make changes to the existing plan we have picked out. After the first meeting with Meg and knowing what products are available for us, we did not even bother getting a quote elsewhere. This was the place where we wanted to do business.
Meg and Rod have both been very helpful throughout the whole building experience. Always happy to see us after hours which I think is A1! Again, we thought it was very nice having all the options available when it came to colour selection. All the standard options for doors, baths, sinks, taps etc. are pretty good and of course there is the option to upgrade if you feel like it.
What I loved about our building experience is the time frame they built the house in, as well as the fixed price. The timeframe especially was important to us as our rental contract ran out that year. Needless to say GJ Gardner did not disappoint. Another thing that kept coming to mind is how clean the building site was. Whenever we visited to have a look, scheduled or not, there was no unnecessary building rubble lying around. Again, this shows the standard the GJ Gardner team delivers.
We have been living in our house for 10 months now and we still love every bit of our home.The way the house is finished is fantastic. Any minor problems, even after handover, was sorted out quickly and without hassles. Really can't complain about service.
If we were to build again in the future we will definitely use GJ Gardner again.
I will recommend GJ Gardner to anyone who is after a quality product. There are just too many plus points not to use them.
Thank you to the whole team at GJ Gardner Naracoorte for your service and everything you have done for us. Two thumbs up!

GJ Gardner, Kingston SE
We built with Rod, Meg and the team in the Naracoorte/Mt Gambier branch on the Limestone Coast of South Australia.
They used mostly local trade people so their is an element of 'local' to their franchise.
To say we are happy would be a huge understatement, we built a very affordable, modern, contemporary and low maintenance home and are thrilled with what we got. Bang for bucks means GJ's all the way!
We were initially 'sold' on a plan of our own but after talking with Rod and the team we ended up building one of their plans with some small amendments to suit us.
The customer service was excellent in our opinion, the build was transparent, logical and well planned. Communication was very good and it was never too much of a hassle for them to reply to an email or phone call promptly.
The finished workmanship was top notch and the finish and attention to detail was better than we expected.
Customer service since our build has been good too with many calls from GJ's asking if we are happy and they have been more than willing to come back and do 'touch up' work where we requested it.
We would highly recommend the GJ Gardner franchise on the Limestone Coast to anyone considering a new home. This has been our first build after owning homes around town and it has been refreshingly stress free.

Dream come true!
If we could give GJ Gardner Homes - Mount Gambier a 10 star rating we absolutely would press that button! We have had the most proffessional and rewarding experience building our beautiful home. Right from the start we were welcomed in as part of the GJ Gardner family. During the planning stage, we were very impressed that we were able to change original plans to suit our needs, no questions asked. Everything was about us and building our HOME! The communication from Sue & Britt at the office, with us about every stage of our build was exceptional. The quality of the products and workmanship were outstanding and the final product and attention to detail was beyond our expectations. Warren, Rod and all of the people on site were fantastic. Very proud of our GJ Gardner Home. Thankyou so much
Made Our Dreams Come True GJ Gardner Mount Gambier
We were lucky enough to build our dream home through GJ Gardner Mount gambier, the service we received was outstanding, while working away in Western Australia and living here, also planning our wedding at the same time, we built our beautiful home and planned our wedding from the other side of Australia, which we thought would be very stressful but GJ Gardner we're great to work with, we communicated via phone and emails and when we were home we caught up as much as we could. Sue and Brit were a pleasure to work with they even came into the office on there day off cause we were home, even with the 2.5 hour time difference GJ Gardner worked around us, doing things for us out of hours, this made our building experience stress free. We ordered all our appliances online and GJ Gardner were kind enough to let us get them delivered directly to them. Highly recommend these guys and if we ever build again we know who to come and see. Just want to say thanks so much GJS

This is our forever home, so the planning was quite lengthy, but the finished product was just as we had imagined.
