My husband and I have only got positive things to say about Spacemaker's work on our home restoration and renovation project. Our house was by no means straightforward with a heritage overlay, restricted site access and high elevation.
The design and management team expertly guided us to a design and building solution that make complete sense and has completely transformed our home while maintaining it's original character. We loved the way the design and construction were seamless and it was all managed by Spacemaker - no external architect/draftsperson and builder debates.
Every member of the Spacemaker team from the management, draftspeople, interior advisers, carpenters and roof tilers to their preferred shower screen suppliers were great to work with and all seemed to fully appreciate Spacemaker's commitment to excellent craftsmanship and client service.
The foreman and core team were sensational to work with. They kept things moving and gave great advice on decisions and selections. Most importantly they listened and communicated well and were skillful, safe and quiet.
Spacemaker came in on time and on budget. They left the house and site complete, clean and ready to enjoy. We are thrilled with the quality of the design, quality of work and end result.

For us, never having renovated previously, with two small children and a modest budget, the prospect of a rebuilding almost an entire house was daunting to say the least.
From friends and family we had heard only stories of projects exceeding budgets and timelines while stress levels soared. But we had a great spot in a great suburb and we had decided to build our family home.
Right from the start, Spacemakers were a dream to deal with. From day one, they answered all our questions repeatedly and guided us when we hit a dead-end by finding affordable, workable solutions. And they did it in a professional and flexible way, considering both functional and aesthetic factors.
Building started and our project manager, Tim, consistently exceeded our expectations. We worked as a team every step of the way and he invited and used our feedback to build the house we had always wanted.
Time and again, we drew on his years of expertise and knowledge as well as took advantage of the amazing relationships he had developed with every single tradesperson that worked on the house. A common refrain heard on site was "we can do that for Tim".
He resolved every challenge efficiently, without ever compromising what we wanted, and would approach every meeting with a smile and a can-do attitude, which had a ripple effect on the whole crew. Months later, having had other tradesman through the house for various small projects, we heard every single one comment on the exceedingly high standard to which the house had been built.
We have nothing but praise and affection for Damien, Tim, Greg, Cam and all the great blokes that built our house and would not hesitate to recommend Spacemaker. We have come away from this experience on budget, on time, without a frayed nerve in sight and most importantly, with not only a lovely house, but our perfect family home.

We would like to thank Spacemaker for making the renovation of our home such an organised and stress free experience. Spacemaker assisted us with a design and renovation of our house. The team led by Anthony was outstanding!
The professionalism and 'can do' attitude of the team helped make the whole renovation experience incredibly enjoyable. The team worked with us through the whole process from concept to handover and communicated with us the whole way so we never felt like we did not know what was happening.
We would recommend Spacemaker in a heartbeat to anyone considering a renovation.
Thank you Spacemaker!

It is so rare to receive a service, especially in the building industry, where you can say that you received a service beyond expectations and have absolutely nothing to complain about and everything to praise. My experience with Spacemaker was one of these rare events. Thank you.
I now have a brilliant extension that is more than I hoped for and, given my time over again. There is nothing I would change.
Firstly, I must commend Paul, my project manager, who orchestrated everything. His attention to detail was outstanding and I do appreciate the way he made things appear seamless; recognising that this was not always the case.
But Paul could not have done his job so well without the support of the tradies, and I cannot speak more highly of them all. They all showed respect for my property, as well as myself and my daughter... and my dog. But most importantly, they took pride in their work and were superior in their execution.
From the excavation, pouring of the slab, building the frame, scaffolding, brickwork, plumbing, roofing and plastering to the finer detail of the electrics, tiling, and fitting out. Even the clearing of rubbish was done regularly and professionally. I would use each and every one of these tradies again without question.
I take my hat off to you. You have created a model that works; because your customer comes first.
It is now three months since we have moved back into our lovely home and we just wanted to touch base and say how very happy we are.
To this day, I remember Tereses' exact words of 'Spacemaker are fantastic, they will do a great job and they will look after you'.
As you know we were very cautious initially, especially as you hear so many disaster stories, well not for us.
From the very first contact with the very friendly Bernie and meetings with the delightful, helpful and extremely professional Bill over the course of a few months,we definitely had a good feeling about Spacemaker and Terese's words were never far.
It was lovely getting to know Bill who was very patient with our many questions and emails in the early stages.
We cannot thank the wonderful Anthony ‘Cooch" enough and how lucky were we that Cooch was our Project Manager. Cooch was the quintessential gentleman throughout our renovations and the communication between Cooch and us was “out of this world’.
We were kept up to date with regular phone calls and emails and nothing was too much trouble.
Anthony and all the trades were so friendly, caring and their professional “above and beyond' approach made us feel confident It took us a while to adjust being home without Cooch and the trades...we did miss Coach for a teeny weeny bit!
Thank you too Tim for your support and advice — especially on day 1 of the renovationl! Spacemaker exceeded our expectation and we wish Spacemaker
continued success in the many years to come - a true testament to what you all do.
