Choosing a builder
As with choosing an architect/designer, it’s essential to select a builder you can trust and feel comfortable with. Choose wisely. They are making something for you that is going to cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars and if they get it wrong it can directly affect your wallet, your health and your safety.
If you’re doing a renovation they are often arriving as you’re showering and leaving as you’re preparing dinner. They need to respect your house, too. Building can be a dirty job but there are steps for minimising the dirt and the inconvenience. Set the ground rules early.
