Thanks for your fantastic work on our wonderful house at Terrace Downs – we’re thrilled. Not only about the end product, but also about the process. Terrace Downs is not an easy venue at which to build. And, having never built a house before, you know how apprehensive we were, particularly with our extended UK trip right in the middle of preceedings. Thank you so much for the cheerful guidance and obvious competence. We couldn’t have built at a busier time, we were at the zenith of the building boom and it was an eye-opener to see how many different personnel were involved! Thanks for bringing the project in on time and on budget – and particularly for dealing with the odd hiccup you had with the architect’s plans; your insightful interpretation and management sorted all that out! Working with Buchan Construction was an immensely satisfying learning experience for us. They went out of their way to make it all happen and we thank them for delivering on their promises – we always felt we were in very safe hands.

Jamie built the house that my husband and I currently live in and we were totally satisfied with the whole project. We were kept fully informed throughout the construction period and Jamie went the extra mile to ensure that the house was delivered on time and on budget. The workmanship was first rate and we have a home we are very proud of. We are now selling our house – not because we don’t like it – but because Jamie is now building our new house. That is a recommendation in itself! It is with pleasure that I make this testimony and recommend Buchan Homes to anyone looking to embark on a building project.
