Profile 1 - Eric and Margret

Eric and Margaret have only recently retired after many years as pastors. Five years ago, while based in Brisbane, they purchased an elevated sloping block with sweeping North Eastlerly ocean views on the beautiful Sunshine Coast. The vacinity to Brisbane was an important factor in purchasing where they did, in addition to the aspect of the land and the water views.

Margaret says "We chose to build with Buildmore because when we first met them, we went to see their home, this really 'clinched the deal for us' and boosted our confidence in going with Buildmore. Importantly they could fulfill our needs on a sloping block. Other builders we had spoken to were not confident in building on a slope. Buildmore's quote also suited our budget. We thought it was really important to have everything as we wanted it, seeing as we had our block for 5 years before we even started building".

"We found Buildmore staff helpful right from the start, they were proudly personalised and nothing was too much trouble, they were always prompt in responding to our needs and requests", says Margaret. "They never lost patience with us. We just found them to be easy to communicate with".

"The features we love the most about our new home; are the open plan living areas, which meets our families needs, we love our luxurious polished timber floors, our central kitchen and our sweeping decks. Our entry is a gorgeous, warm and welcoming first impression, which Peter paid special attention to. Our pool at the entry is a highlight for our whole family. We are very pleased with the quality of work and their determination to ensure contractors complied with their same high quality. The insightful improvements to the plan during construction have been particularly appreciated".

"The Buildmore staff kept us very well informed, as our home progressed.".

"The last time we built was over 20 years ago; a lot has changed since then. It was a lot more exciting this time around and we were able to have a lot more input. Though, at our age we are not interested in building again. This is it for us".

Margaret says "We recommend Buildmore to anybody who is contemplating any sort of building, especially on a sloping block. They did a wonderful job; I think this is a specialised area for Buildmore".

Our thanks.
Margaret and Eric.

Sam Says;

We met Eric and Margaret after they saw one of our project site signs; some 12 months before they decided to build on their property.

They are a lovely couple and were much easier to please, than they think they were.

We first explored the specific requirements that their custom built home would need to fulfill and how to get the best out of the slope of the block and important orientation to take the best advantage of the gorgeous views. They often have family come to stay and wanted to offer privacy and safety for their grandchildren. Eric and Margaret also wanted a pool and didn't want to have to traipse through the house with wet feet. They obviously wanted to make the most of their views and wanted a home that would not only be homely and inviting, aesthetically modern and attractive but also be of a high standard of finish.

We developed plans to present to them and after some minor alterations, came up with the plan that met all of these requirements and more.

Building was a breeze, because Eric and Margaret had realistic expectations and they were decisive when it came to selections, colors and making decisions.

The collaberative result is a tribute to their willingness to explore innovative design concepts, materials and technologies (such as security). This home is welcoming, functional, and exudes quality. We are very proud of the result and satisfied that Eric and Margaret are so chuffed with it.

Enjoy!
Sam.
