    Housespec recently built our new home in Ivanhoe. The site had very narrow access, which some builders wouldn't even consider. Housespec was fabulous. They kept the site very clean, were considerate of the neighbours and did great job navigating through all the issues associated with Covid (supply, lockdowns etc). The quality of the build is very good - they clearly take pride in their work. They are always happy to talk through changes and suggestions and I... read more

    Andrew and Richard were able to assist us through a difficult time in our project and provide advice to enable us to progress to an end point. They were happy to help with advice whenever called upon which assisted us in clearing council matters and other delays when no one else would step up. Both of you have been fantastic to deal with during what we have found to be a challenging project. Seriously cannot thank you both enough.

    I engaged Housespec to carry out extensive renovations inside and outside. The trades people engaged were of a very high quality and well managed by the project manager. They took care to be clean and respectful. The quality of the work was very high and price competitive. When difficulties arose they responded quickly and effectively and remedied any defects without question. I could not recommend them any more highly. I would encourage anyone to consider them for their own... read more

    Richard and Patrick were amazing to work with for our tiny home renovation in Richmond. Their extensive experience allowed them to give us advice on all parts of the build including small details which really make the house look spectacular. They were able to advise us on what we should be paying for extras like aircon and fireplace install which prevented us from getting ripped off. They did a great job at adapting to Covid and keeping the project moving... read more

    This review is for Andrew from Housespec. I hope this review helps someone who, like us, has faced tremendous hurdles in starting an owner builder project of a considerable size. It was a God-sent when we found Andrew!Andrew has been kindly giving us free advise and the way that we should go and had given us many valuable contacts which we could explore. I have not encountered many people in the building industry to be so willing to share information... read more

    Highly recommended! Reliable, flexible, and very patient! We have contacted many builders for our 1st building project, but only Andrew from Housepac, provided the best prompt communication, details quotation with a fair price, and patiently answer all our questions throughout the build. Our project is definitely not a easy one for our 1st attempt, but Andrew & Richard are able to come up with solutions to minimize extra cost. Their trademen are all first class and easy to due... read more
