The Rural Building Company

Built my paradise

Management was excellent. Staff always approachable and contactable. The workers were always prompt and worked long hours.
Quality of the carpentry exceptional in particular and they were very hard workers.
A few issues with the installation of the stove by the plumbers which I feel was not done properly and have recently had to have fixed.
Cost came in under estimate which was a nice surprise.

I am glad stove installation has been resolved and a reduced home cost is always a bonus! Congratulations on your new Rural Building Company home, wishing you all the best! Thankyou.

Amazing first build

Our build in Denmark was our second home we have owned but the first time we have been through the building process. We were anticipating a fair few problems along the way after speaking with other people who have built in the area but were so happy when it virtually went off without a hitch!!
From the beginning the Country Builders representative was very patient with us with the back and forth to ensure the design was exactly what we wanted. He would visit us at our home and assisted us to get the design and look we were after within our budget.
The girls in the office were then so helpful with with pre-start and understanding the style and design we were after.
Then came the best part, the build! We were extremely fortunate to get an amazing site supervisor. He was so on the ball! We visited site on numerous occasions and would pick up small things which when speaking with our site supervisor, he had already seen and was in the process of rectifying. He was open and honest throughout the entire process and kept us informed on the progress on a regular basis. He made us feel as if our build was as important to him as it was to us. We honestly feel that the build would have been a much more stressful process if it wasn't for our site supervisor.
The workmanship and quality of the build was as we expected and on budget.
We had one issue with loss of power the day after key handover due to torrential rain. One phone call to our site supervisor, and the issue was fixed within an hour. We also have had an minor issue with the leech drains, which Country Builders are in the process of fixing.

We can't thank the team enough for making our first build such an easy and enjoyable process. We would recommend building with Country Builders to others and hopefully we will get the opportunity to build with them again in the future.

A Perfect Family Home - Stress Free Building

We have been living in our new home for 3 months now, this is a dream come true. Our first build, living 600kms away and a pregnancy. Our home is built with no corner cut, to the highest quality polished and perfect. Every employee at Rural was a pleasure to deal with. So glad we put all our trust in Rural Builders, the standard quality of there homes allows you to not really need to know much about what you are doing. There are so many extra features in our home we didn't know we had that really finish it off nicely.

Hi there, thanks so much for such a lovely review. So great to hear that everything went to plan considering your very busy lifestyle at the time! That you were very satisfied with the high quality standard finish and of course that you maintained a great relationship with us throughout the build. Wishing you a lifetime of memories in your new RBC family home. Thankyou.

A great experience

Great experience. This is my first time building and the process was very easy and clear from the start. The sales team were very helpful with answering any questions. The building supervisor was approachable and easy to talk to with no problem being to big or small. I was expecting that building with a larger company that my house would just be another number for the contractors on site but was pleasantly surprised by the care and workmanship of all the trades.

Thank you for building my first ever home!! I have only been living there for a few weeks and absolutely love it!
From the sales consultant, construction supervisor and everyone in between were fantastic. I expected to be a few hiccups through our build however, everyone was more than happy to come up with a few solutions to the problem to make sure that I was happy- much appreciated. Thank you again, I would defiantly recommend to friends and family.

Hi Tawny, So great to hear that you are loving your new RBC Home! Plus that you enjoyed your overall experiences with your sales consultant, construction supervisor and others involved in the process. So important that the end result is as you envisioned and that we did everything we could to overcome any issues. Thank you for the potential recommendations. Enjoy making memories in your new RBC Home!

As Tina Turner said " Simply the Best "

We built the Marri View home with RBC and i can't fault it.
The building itself looks strong and bold sitting on our 1 acre block with some serious timber poles and raked ceiling that set the home apart from any others that we have seen.
The finishings in the kitchen , bathrooms and scullery where done first class obviously by tradies that are at the top of their game.
Our building Supervisor who has been in the building game for years was amazing , he helped us understand the process and gave us a comfortable feeling through the build . He kept us updated as we went along and ran the build on schedule getting us in before Christmas as agreed.
We found the office staff to be understanding and helpful even when we where getting a bit stressed at the start with permits from the shire and they got us through in the end.
I would strongly recommend RBC to anyone and wish them every success with future builds.

Kind Regards Matt

A beautiful family home

My husband and I specifically chose to build with Rural Building Co for our second build after loving their designs and reading through all the great reviews. We were not disappointed! From the initial sales person (Joel) through to the plan drawings and the on-to completion, RBC exceeded our expectations and consistently communicated with us to ensure that we were always kept up to speed with the goings-on of the build. Specifically we were very impressed with our New Home Administrator Brooke, who was extremely patient with us as we made multiple variations and requested regular updates, all of which she responded to in a timely manner. We would also like to say how wonderful our Site Supervisor Chris was, who always took the time to meet with us on site if needed, patiently listened to any concerns or queries, and promptly responded to ensure that my husband and I were happy with the outcome. Thank you very much RBC, we can't wait to make some memories in our beautiful home!

1st time building - Good experience.

This is the first time we have built a new home and of course we were wary due to horror stories from others who have built. I am pleased and relieved to say we did not have any real issues and any problems that did arise were dealt with and resolved in a timely manner. Due to wet weather we were not able to start building straight away but the staff kept us up to date and as soon as it was dry enough to build they started straight away and things moved along fine from there. We had our own ideas on the floor plan of the home we chose and the Staff worked with us and helped us change the Marri View display home to meet our requirements. We got the keys a few weeks ago and are in the process of moving in and so far are happy with our new home, we have a couple of small items on our list so far that should be addressed at the 6 month mark and I am confident they will be. We would highly recommend WA Country Builders to anyone who asks and is thinking of using them.

We aim to give all our clients the home that is perfect for them and make the process easy along the way. We hope you enjoy your new home. Warm regards.

Young Couple - First Home!

Rural Building Company was one of a few, to share the same vision, for our first home and so together, with their knowledge, we were able to create our dream home! A stunning family home built with ease, to suit the acreage. The quality of products that RBC used exceeded our expectation along with the building site kept neat and tidy throughout the build, reflects the good standard and professionalism by the trades that came through the site. We had a very efficient supervisor, who went to all lengths and immediately address any queries, without hesitation. This made the progress throughout the build a stress free time, which ensure that we enjoyed the experience of building.

Hi Giorgi, thank you very much for your review. It's important to us to keep the process of building easy for you. We aim to keep our sites on track and as presentable as possible. Kind regards.

A Great Building Experience

We had a fantastic building experience with WA Country Builders from the beginning to the end. In the beginning we were not able to start building straight away as our block was to wet but the staff stayed in contact with us and as soon as it ok to build they started straight away. The Staff were fantastic and helped us change the Flinders display home to our dream farm house. We are so happy with our finished home and we would highly recommend everyone at WA Country Builders.

Hi Cass, quality of building is very important to us as is service. It's great to hear you are enjoying your new dream home. Than you for your feedback. Warm regards.

Thanks for a job well done!

We approached RBC just over a year ago with two plans to build a 3 bedroom home and a 2 bedroom ancillary. The ancillary was the first build and we have just been handed the keys to this dwelling and are very happy with the end result, thanks to the efforts of all those involved including the tradesmen and sub-contractors. It has been just over 6 months since construction began and we found it to be an enjoyable experience. Beginning from our first contact with the company's Sales Representative, and then the New Home Administrator and finally the Site Supervisor, we have had a good relationship with the company and the cooperation and help received has been well above our expectations.

RBC have done an excellent job in attending to every fine detail as far as quality is concerned and were very prompt when it came to rectifying even the smallest of errors. We look forward to working with them again when construction of the 3 bedroom dwelling begins in a few months' time.

Hi Ivan, thank you very much for your review. It's great to hear you are enjoying the Rural Building experience. Kind regards.

Rural Retirement

The team we had from RBC was just fantastic, Our experience building our first home was a journey that was made easy and pleasurable for us, especially as we were 1700klms away. I wanted a Scullery in my houe and our Sales rep modified the Durack to fit in a Scullery for me. The design went back and forth for a few weeks but we got there with perserverance on our Salesmans behalf. There was a few small issues that needed to be attended to before handover, these were fixed within a week. From the Sales Rep, Housing Administrator to our Building Supervisor. Thankyou you went over and beyond to help us. Would recommend you to anyone looking at Building.

A good hills retreat!

A great home with retreat like feel. A few hick ups with construction- bricklaying and white wash was poor. Manager tried to help as good as he could. However was often defensive. Change of manager half way thru contruction. It took around 12 months to construct. Which is reasonable. Administration was great- very helpful. overall we are happy with the end product.

Very Enjoyable Build

Rural Building Company built our house in Applecross last year. The construction was very well managed and faster than expected - it took 8 months from siteworks to handover. Our supervisor was excellent, very approachable, always patient and highly efficient, with great support from the construction manager and new homes administrator. They always acted with great integrity and conscientiousness. I highly recommend Rural Building Company and would not hesitate to build with them again.

Hi Jeannie, Its very important to have an approachable supervisor when building your home. We thank you very much for your wonderful review. Regards.

Who said you can't build a Rural House on a small block

Along with the small block plan and a wish list of 8 "Must Have's" Rural designed a custom house to suit our block. The workmanship was excellent and unlike other houses we have had built we dealt with just one supervisor throughout the build. Attention to detail from Pre-Start to completion was excellent along with the flexibility of working round the concrete shell of a pool. Of all the houses we have had built this was by far the most enjoyable.

"A Perfect Build" Thanks RBC and Team

A custom design house that turned out perfect. A big special thanks to the site supervisor and the management at the RBC office. The whole build was easy and the creation was exceptional. Can't thank the team enough and the price was value for money. I would highly recommend you visit RBC and discuss your dream and make it reality.

Hi Dave, Custom builds are always exciting for us, as we love seeing a beautiful creation come to life. Thank you very much for providing a review. Kind Regards.

Staggered build with high quality.

We have been looking for quite a few years for the perfect home to compliment our already established block. It wasn't until we walked into the Marri view we found the house that just needed a few personal tweaks. We are still halfway through building this. We however have completed a studio to match the Marri. RBC have been brilliant and that includes all of the contractors. There build has been fantastic and they have worked around our running business at the same located with no disruptions. I just can't wait for the new house to be finished too!

Hi Vinnie, Thank you for your wonderful feedback. Our Marri View design is quite popular and our Display home was definitely one to see. We can not wait to see the finished product also. Warm Regards.

Our dream house

All the staff were so helpful and friendly, from our Sales Consultant, to Pre-Start and Supervision and always the Receptionist. No question was treated as too silly or insignificant.
We saw the Karridale Retreat but wanted an extra bedroom and office. They already had an alternative where the kitchen pivoted and we then could remove the garage, giving us two extra rooms, hallway and powder room. Fabulous result. Everyone who visits is stunned by the size and quality of the kitchen.
It did take longer than we expected, but this is likely the effect of building in the country. There were a few hiccups along the way, but these were dealt with promptly and professionally.
Overall best building experience we have had. Would happily recommend Rural Building to others. We are living in our dream home.

Hi Kellie, Thank you very much for your review. Getting the design right from the very beginning is very important when building a home, this is why we offer many alternative designs. We are so glad to here that your beautiful new home is fulfilling your dreams. Enjoy, Warm regards.

Communication the Key

We had visited builders display homes and display villages all over the metropolitan area and in Bunbury and as far south as Busselton. The build quality of RBC homes was far and away better than the other builders homes displayed. Fortunately RBC's Karri Creek was the design for us.
Throughout the whole process of consultation, approvals, construction and handover the team at RBC responded to any queries very promptly. If not the same day then certainly at first opportunity the next day.
We have been in our new home for 4 months now. The build quality was outstanding, any issues were resolved promptly and confidence remained very high right up to handover.
