'Thanks to Simon, AJ and the whole team at EST. Building for their commitment and professionalism throughout our building project. From the initial design process through to completion, there has been a high level of personal consultation, with the end result not only a house, but our family home. Build quality was very high, and we were impressed by the attention to detail shown. We have no reservation recommending Simon to anyone wishing to build their dream home.'

‘The process of building our new home with EST. Building was really exciting from start to finish. We came to Simon with a variety of ideas of what we wanted in a home. It was very clear from the beginning that Simon is incredibly creative, thoughtful and passionate about building and he could put together a design for a custom-built home that hit the mark.
This included a focus on a modern design and a great deal of forethought to the practical aspects that are essential in a home. The building process with EST. Building was seamless.
This isn’t our first time building a new home, but we can honestly say there was a marked difference in the experience with EST. Building — the high standard of finishes, the trades were outstanding, the communication was regular and clear. This resulted in a really classy and elegant home where family, friends and tradesman have all come through and said “Wow, what a beautiful home!”.
We love our new home and couldn’t recommend EST. Building highly enough.'

'It is with great pleasure that we recommend Simon White and his team at EST. Building. We have just completed and moved into our beautiful new home in Harrington Grove.
Simon came recommended by a friend who had built with Simon the year before in Elderslie. From the first meeting we liked Simon and felt comfortable with him. We were building for the first time and being novices he held our hand and guided us through a very painless build. Being a business owner myself, I knew that I wanted to deal with a fellow small business in our area. We wanted a builder who would be hands on throughout the process and we would not palmed off onto someone else.
From picking tiles, paint colours, bricks, the kitchen build (I love my kitchen) and so forth, every person Simon recommended was excellent. The tradespeople were knowledgeable, very pleasant to deal with and the standard of their work was excellent. Our home is exactly as per the plan we designed and amazingly came right in at budget, how could we ask for more! My husband and I would have no hesitation in recommended Simon and EST. Building to anyone considering building a home’.

‘Having left messages with a number of builders, Simon returned our call and made an appointment to visit us, late in the evening at our home. His authenticity is what we remember the most from that first conversation. Like comfortable shoes, we knew after that initial meeting, EST. Building was going to be our best fit.
The decision to build a new home was always going to be life changing for us. We needed a builder who understood what we wanted from our home, the way we lived and how we could future-proof it's function as our boys got older. We needed a builder who called us out on our dumb ideas but always had alternative options for us to consider We needed a builder we could trust like family. In Simon and EST. we found all those things.
Our biggest fear in building a custom home was building a home sight unseen. Simon gave us the freedom to dictate the functional flow of our home. Sure, there were moments we needed to measure rooms and compare against our plans, but for the better part, we just trusted Simon's and Danyon's experience when it came to room size and design. To their credit, they incorporated all of our feedback.
When we talk to our friends and colleagues about EST. Building it's simple, we tell them not to bother choosing anyone else. Simon allowed us to change things along the way, he challenged us in a logical way and provided us with insight on the do's and don'ts of building.
The results of the end product speak volumes of how EST. responded to and listened to all of our needs. Our home turned out better than we could have ever imagined. We believe in reward being commensurate with effort, and we take that as a measure, then EST. Building put in a truly magnificent effort’.

‘When choosing a builder we wanted flexibility on design for our home. After meeting Simon we were impressed with his attitude from our very first consultation. There were a few things that worried us when building. We were concerned with time frames blowing out and any hidden costs that would occur during the build. As expected, neither of these were a concern at all.
EST. Building responded to and exceeded our needs in all aspects. Any questions/issues we had were dealt with immediately by whomever was necessary.
We enjoyed the entire building process. We had complete access to our home throughout and were able to see the progress of construction. Simon was always on hand to assist.
We talk about EST. Building on every possible occasion to our friends. We cannot fault anything throughout the build and people find it hard to believe how easy this was for us. From the customer service, to the easy processes, to the Builder Trend App, all of these contributed to such a successful build’.
Tim & Jordan
After speaking with multiple builders in the market (both project and private), we immediately felt confident and comfortable after our initial meeting with Simon. When making our decision on the right builder, one of the most important things for us was communication and we knew from the outset that having direct access to the builder from start to finish would be invaluable. We had seen homes EST. Building had previously constructed and loved everything about them from design through to workmanship. We would have been silly to proceed with any other builder.
After hearing so many horror stories through friends and family, we were fearful that our dream home may never be realised and even if it was, not at a desired level of craftsmanship/quality. We were also worried about potential unexpected delays and costs to the contract. These fears were quickly squashed early in the piece after the team at EST. Building displayed an unbelievably high attention to detail which exceeded our already high expectations. The build was completed ahead of time and the contract price didn’t change one cent from start to finish!
EST. Building were unbelievably accommodating when responding to our needs throughout the process. Regardless of who you spoke with in the team, we knew that any questions or queries were resolved in a timely manner with favourable outcomes. During the build, we decided to make ad hoc changes to the design and EST. Building bent over backwards to make these changes happen.
The communication between builder and client with EST. Building is second to none. The level of detail in the finishes of the build have exceeded our expectations and all work carried out by the trades was to a high standard and the finishes are world class. The team at EST. Building are amazing - they are easy to deal with, friendly and caring. The quality of construction is to an unbelievably high standard and we would recommend to anyone that is considering building a new home to speak with EST. Building.
Michael & Debbie
A HUGE thanks to Simon, AJ, Stacey, Trish and Cindy for the commitment to finishing our beautiful new home before the contracted date.
Simon’s team are nothing but amazing. From the first meeting when it was just a dream to walking into our beautiful hone ready for our family from overseas to visit was a journey we loved. Choosing a private builder was the best decision we made.
Simon builds a house as if it was his own. Small changes were made by him as he watched our home come out of the ground. It was as if he was moving in.
We enjoyed our very first build and you never know…we may just do it again, it was that much fun! Without a doubt, we will use EST. Building. Congratulations on such a great team, including all the trades.
Craig & Jade
We wanted a more personal approach to our build and we received a great impression from Simon right from our initial meeting and that’s why we chose EST. Building.
Simon was exceptional during the design process. Making and deciding on selections was difficult for us and we did make one wrong one, but EST. Building gladly helped us fix it without any troubles. Stacey was amazing in assisting with colour choices, nothing was ever a hassle.
We loved seeing our house come together and seeing how quickly and smoothly it went. Everything exceeded our expectations, there wasn’t one disappointment.
We keep telling our friends how great the EST. Building team is and we would highly recommend them to anyone. Thank you for your amazing work. We could not be happier with our forever home.
