With 15 years’ experience in the building industry, Ron Townsend has spent much of that time working closely with his clients as a renovation builder, helping them turn their houses into the homes they’ve always dreamed of. It’s this customer service and eye for finer details he brings to the table as a Melbourne home builder.
“You have a lot of client interaction with renovations and extensions – people still have to live in the property so they’re pretty much on the job with you every day,” Ron says.
While he enjoyed renovations, he felt with his skills and experience he could offer people a lot more with the bigger picture of a whole family home.
Ron has worked with new and old homes and the first thing he suggests people consider is energy efficiency.
“If you’re going to get a new home you’re going to get one that’s far more energy efficient. You’ve got to take that into the equation these days; electricity prices are going up and the costs of running your house are going up too. If you buy an old house you’ve got to be aware that its efficiency is nowhere near that of what’s required for a new home.”
People often say old homes were built better, but Ron likes to point out the building standards are higher today, particularly when you build with Stroud homes.
“With a new home your house is going to last a long time – it’s going to outlast you.”
Born and bred in Melbourne, Ron has gone into partnership with his son Caleb, bringing to you a local family building team dedicated to building local family homes.
Ron and his son have been working together for 6 years and make a great team. While Caleb looks after the building side of things and will often be found on build sites, Ron manages the business of finding the right home design to suit your needs as well as your budget.
