When looking for a builder a family member who is in the trade suggested Oakford. Glad he did as they have given us a good looking, quality home which was a hassle free experience. We have an unusually long, skinny block and they helped us find a design that would fit, but also give us the room we needed. The finished product is so spacious, considering only 7 metres wide!! The selection process was fun as each component a separate adventure so not so mind boggling. Plans were finalized quickly as we were going away, which meant the build co...uld start. It was exciting to return home and find a frame up. A couple of issues on inspection date were soon fixed in time for handover . Cost wise the original estimate was pretty close to final figure. An unknown underground tank was found on the property at time of excavation which had to be removed and dumped which added to the cost. Otherwise the build was done in the time predicted. We just love being there!! And plenty of room for the family.

Committed to client concerns
Although we are disappointed with the kitchen and means we need to find our own Kitchen/Cabinetry provider to fix at our cost, Oakford listened objectively to our concerns to try and resolve where they could. Unfortunately have been let down by their kitchen contractors.
At this point the Site Supervisor has been excellent and probably one of the best out of the last 3 construction projects we have done with other builders. We have been impressed also with the sales consultant and senior manager.
So far Oakford seems committed to have goo...d outcomes for their clients. Just wish they had a different kitchen/cabinetry company to deal with. We have the rest of the house yet to finish and we hope that the rest of the house can be completed to a high level finish.

Oakford Homes Your still the Best
Well, our fourth build with Oakford Homes, there are several reason we always chose Oakford Homes again. From the very start with Ron May, he really knows design and what you need and will keep working with you until everything is exactly what you want. The whole team in this company is like a well oiled machine, everyone knows what to do and they do it really well. We have got to know them all and find each and every one of them friendly and very helpful." Love your work people" Our Supervisor, well what can I say, hard working, helpful, alwa...ys seems happy to take your call and discuss all stages of the build and address any concerns, Thank you so much, your the best. Now, we all know there are things that do not always go to plan, but, Oakford Homes we have found will do there very best to put your mind at ease and try to fix it. I would also like to mention, rarely do you hear from the tradies. I was fortunate enough to catch up with quite a few (all brilliant) and each and every one of them said that Oakford homes was the best for them to deal with and that they looked after their trade people very well. Finally, apart from helping unpack all these boxes, there work is done, Thank you again Oakford Homes
Update to Not Happy Mr Oakford!
My previous post "Not happy Mr Oakford...... all is forgiven!
Father Christmas came early this year!
A bricklayer arrived this morning and repaired the area of concern and it's looking great!
Any concerns I had have been addressed and I'm totally satisfied.
Thankyou Oakford Homes
I'm very grateful to Oakford homes and especially to General Manager - a real gentleman!
I'd like to express my total disappointment with Oakford Homes.
I love my Oakford Home or did, before it started cracking up. It has serious structural cracking to external bricks as well broken bathroom and kitchen tiles - all across the 'cut and fill' line. ...
Questions & Answers
How can I obtain a ball park price on an Oakford design so that I will have some idea of what I can spend on a block of land..?
First time home builders and we are looking into Oakford homes but the quotes we are getting seem to be a lot cheaper than other companies which seems to worry me slightly. I was wondering if anyone has built with them and could give a rough idea of how much the final cost was compared to the starting quote? we are not looking for fancy high class products as we are young and would rather build within budget and upgrade latter where possible. Any help or advice would be very welcome. Thanks
I wouldn't be too concerned with the price. We found oakford to be exceptional value and having built before understood all the different specs. They're specs are in most cases better than the others for a lot less. I'm not sure why, maybe ask them, but I suspect their margins are smaller and therefore you save.
The quality wasn't compromised either.
I think you will find building with them and very easy process.
