We would recommend SJD

published

We are very happy with the overall build quality of our new house. We found SJD team to be very professional, prompt, flexible and willing to help. The build process went smoothly after a few hiccups with council and developer’s requirements. Wesley, the site supervisor was on top of things, helpful and kept us informed with emailed photos at different stages. Pre-handover issues were promptly action despite the COVID restrictions. We were surprised to receive a Tax Depreciation Schedule for our investment property, a bonus to excellent service.
We would happily build with SJD Homes again.

Amazing quality and finishes

published

SJD certainly lived up to their reputation as a top builder when they built our home. From the sales team on, they performed in such a professional manner that we were very confident in the outcome. Wes, our supervisor ensured all works were undertaken with care and accuracy. Communication with Wes was clear and transparent at all times with the final product reflecting the care being taken to construct our beautiful home in accordance with our requirements. There were no surprises with the final costs as they all came within our original budget.
We are very impressed with the workmanship, supervision, finishes and handover experience and are very happy to recommend SJD to anyone proposing to build a new home.

Quality House within Dream Budget

published

SJD Homes made our dream comes true. Their house design at display was perfectly matched our needs and as they assure us , it was built exactly the same size and quality. They are trust worthy and straight forward on making decisions and our building process was smooth and perfect with each stage with email communication. Estimate price is spot on and remarkably affordable to our budget price which was
$223K for a 4 bedrooms, 2 living with double garage single story house.
Thank you and well done all wonderful SJD Team made our dream a real reality.

A great team making it a great experience

Wes, Phillipa and the team were great to deal with. They offered suggestions and listened to our needs. Changes along the way were not an issue. Communication was open and honest and made our build a pleasure to share with them. We are loving our new home and would highly recommend SJD and the team to our family and friends.

Hi, just wondering whether the SJD will change the size of the building to our choice. I like one display house it's 33 squares fits lot size 16x32. But I have 16x28 lot. So want to know whether they can change the size. Thanks

You will be surprised at what they can do, and they’re pretty good with adjusting and customising to your needs. Our house was made a little bigger than off the plan. Good luck!

Kinz L.asked

Hi,
Im in WA. Do you guys only build house or also help with the purchase of land? I am a first home buyer, Wondering if I have to purchase the land separately and hire a builder to build my house or both can be done together by the builder? Also with the land, can I choose my own or does it have to be the ones offered by the builder? Also the whole interiors and material that goes into the house can be freely chosen by the client or need to stick to options offered by builder? I really don't like the modern Australian homes I come across everyday, I want my house to have more stones and woods included and less glasses and steels that makes the house cheap and unnatural and tacky. I am dreaming of a small two storey house. Thank you.

Hi Kinz, if you are looking to build in WA, I'm sorry, we cannot help you. We only build in the SE suburbs of Melbourne.

I don't know mate, but we had to, because we are close to their outer boundaries. Try Leigh Shoebridge from sales, he has a simple sheet that tells you exactly what the premiums are, if there's any at all...good luck

Yes SJD have metropolitan, region 1 and region 2 pricing, Corinella is Region1 (that’s where we built) I think Wonthaggi fell into Region 2.. I did play around on their website and the pricing with regions was on there in 2018 we then met with Leigh Shoebridge went over the plans, elevations, pricing etc. He is very thorough and patient. Our build went quite smoothly, not overly impressed with the plumber though (has attitude and won’t admit fault - little like Dan Andrews). Build completed inside of time frames & no price shock. Customer Service and site supervisor “great”.. all the best
