What Our Clients Have to Say

  • We were very fortunate to have met Building Buddy who …went away and within a few days presented us with the most sensational design, even better than we envisaged at a price well within our budget.

  • We began, by spending week-ends touring around display homes. It was obvious that these sales people had little training or qualification…. Building Buddy quickly provided us with conceptional drawings, … and came up with what we wanted exactly.

  • Many company’s that we had researched wanted some sort of deposit up front, but with Building Buddy, I think we had mutual trust in each other that we were serious about our concepts, and with them behind the sketches and countless drawings, they made our dreams come true.

  • Having a look on the internet for plans ...but we didn’t have much luck, we then came across building buddy ...I don’t know how but they just managed to nail everything we wanted in a design... It seemed like a very quick process, one minute we had a design, next minute we had the quote and the next minute we had builders.
    Jim & Donna Smith

  • We had some Plans Drawn by another group, had difficulty getting anyone to quote on it and when we did the price seemed unrealistic to us... It really was that Building Buddy wanted to know how much to spend and design to that, rather than get plans drawn up and take it to the market and find out that is not near what you wanted it to cost.
    Bernie and Marylin Smith

  • Going to a project home they only offer a certain amount of styles, I did like some of them but then I did have to change a number of things I didn’t like about them.After we got a price from building buddy I also then got a price from the project home builders of a house which was closest to our design. but with the changes we want it would cost at least 60k more… so we thought it would be better to go with Building Buddy.

How the Home Design & Price package works...

  • Step 1

    We have a introductory meeting to understand the basic criteria and outline of your requirements, including budget, so we can produce a sketch design that ticks all the boxes.

  • Step 2

    We prepare a preliminary sketch that can be fine-tuned so it is exactly what you are looking for.

  • Step 3

    We prepare an estimate of build costs so you can understand the elemental cost implications. This is the base we need to properly cost-plan and manage the  design process properly, and helps you find the builder that can deliver.
