It feels like only yesterday that I applied for my builders licence and shortly after, dived into new opportunities with the start of SA Designer Homes . A lot has happened in such a short amount of time and on this occasion, celebrating two years in the business, I wanted to take the time to look back on what has been an epic ride so far.
Flash back to 2010 where it all began. My wife and I developed our first home with the help of a builder. Overall the job went well, albeit with a few hiccups, but it was at that point I knew I wanted to be a builder and do it myself.
Initially, I enrolled to study building design over 18 months and acquired the fundamental basics to design and draw plans using the specialised design programme AutoCAD. During this time however, I changed course and decided to work towards accreditation for a building supervisors license. I was fortunate to have the support of experienced master builders who became my mentors, encouraging and helping me along the way. They took me under their wing and showed me the right way of doing things. I am forever grateful for their guidance and today they are there whenever I need anything (thanks guys, I’m sure your reading this).
In the beginning the business model was to just build developments and supply quality housing to new home buyers, but after receiving great feedback during open inspections, a number of private clients approached me to build homes for them! WOW! After completing these homes ,word of mouth took over and the rest is history; the decision was made to offer services to private clients and SA Designer Homes was born.
It has been a lot of hard work, but determination and dedication is key and the results of the last two years speak for themselves. My mission is to continue to offer a stress free experience for clients by offering outstanding communication, fixed price building contracts and personalised service.
Thank everyone for support – look forward to working with new SA Designer Homes customers in the future.
