Call Us Enquire


We purchased our sloping block in Balwyn North with the intention of constructing a new family home with one of the major volume builders.  However after several months of frustrating discussions and a drawn out costing process we decided to part ways.  Enter Brett McGauchie from Area Projects who had come highly recommended by a work colleague that was mid-way through a major renovation of their period home.


From the outset Brett was extremely professional and exceptionally eager to please.  We had only ever done small renovations before, so appointing a builder to construct an entire new home was a nerve wracking prospect.  Brett quoted our job promptly and thoroughly and within our budget, and assured us that he and his team had the skills and experience to deliver a first class result.


Our build was contracted to take ten months.  Throughout the build process Brett was always quick to respond to a call, text or email, and held our hands tightly.  He would always go the extra mile to deliver the absolute best finish and would never take shortcuts.  We were extremely impressed with the build quality and the professionalism of his team. 

Our home was completed on time and on budget.  We thoroughly enjoyed working with Brett and his delightful team and were sad in many respects when the relationship came to its’ natural conclusion.  But we now have the joy of living in a beautiful home that far surpasses any of our initial expectations
