The Floan residence is a large and gracious family home fitted out to a high standard of specification. The client had designed the home themselves and had a comprehensive list of detailed specifications which we were happy to accommodate.
The resulting home is quietly spectacular; from the cut glass windows in the entry, to the extra wide foyer, elegant formal area and bar, extra large rooms and open plan living area. Every detail of the home has been thought about carefully. Many of the most interesting details are not visible to the eye. It is a credit to the client’s taste and discernment, and to the workmanship of the Genesis team.
“We’ve built twice before with project builders, this time we wanted something more personal. We designed the home ourselves then approached a building broker who looked after the final drawings and council approvals for us. All we needed before we started building was to find a builder we wanted to work with, and to have him prepare our engineering drawings .
Our broker introduced us to several builders; we chose Jack. We liked his depth of technical knowledge, we could question as deeply as we wanted, or keep it simple. We liked his practical approach and the way he spoke about his trades people, and we appreciated his advice with regard to some engineering issues we had on the site.
He engaged with the details of our brief and his recommendations and quote were equally comprehensive. In the end his price was a few thousand dollars lower than the next best price but that really was not why we chose Genesis Homes.
One of us was on site most days throughout construction, not because we needed to be but because we were building our home and we wanted to enjoy it. We were always welcome, they even gave us our own hi-vis vest! Their quality of workmanship and professional attitude was a pleasure to be around.
There were no ‘extras’ in fact after construction was complete, Jack told us that the costs had come in under budget so we used the funds to put additional splashbacks in the kitchen!
Since moving in we have twice had independent tradespeople comment on the quality of the work and standard of finish.
It turned out better than we expected and we are very pleased. Jack and his team are rare people, they are trustworthy and honest, not looking for the easy way out, always looking for the best solution for all concerned.
We already recommend Genesis Homes to friends and if we ever build again we’ll be back.”
