No Horror Stories at Stroud Homes
Ros and John Turnbull knew what they wanted in a new home – they wanted a great house they could basically turn the key, walk in and have nothing else left to do. However, they’d heard how hard new home builds could be and were a bit apprehensive.
“We’d heard lots of horror stories and everybody told us if we really want to build we have to go through the agony – but we’ve had a great time,” Ros Turnbull says. Much to their delight they found no dramas with Stroud Homes in Tweed Heads.
“All of the workers, all the tradesmen have been very professional but very friendly, easy to talk to and really, really tidy… nothing has been a drama and everything that we’ve wanted in the house is there.”
Even when they chose their house plan, Matt was there to propose changes that would prevent future problems. “Matt suggested we reverse the plan so we wouldn’t get the sun on our alfresco area which was a fantastic idea… because if you don’t you’re going to get the sun beaming in all the time and that wouldn’t be pleasant.”
As the build goes on they’ve been welcome to visit the site to see how their new home has been taking shape. “We do that quite often, it has never been a problem, even with the supervisors and the trades people that have been there. Most accommodating,” Ros says.
Stroud Homes proudly stands by its 16 week build time and it looks at this stage like Ros and John will be able to move in ahead of schedule. “We were told 16 weeks which will be up on the 5th of October, by which time we’ll have already been there about three weeks, so a lot quicker than anticipated.”
For something they were so concerned about, Ros and John have thoroughly enjoyed the building process. “We’re going to miss it, my husband in particular is going to really miss it because it’s just been fantastic,” Ros says.
For those looking to build their first home, Ros encourages you to ask questions. “Ask what’s included and not included from a display house point of view.”
Another aspect of Stroud Homes is our long list of standard inclusions. “When we looked at the Stroud Homes, all the things in the display home are included in your house package, whereas a lot of places what you see in the display homes is not included and they’re extras.”
For now Ros and John are looking forward to moving in to their wonderful new home on the water. “We’ve had a great time and it’s been a fantastic company to work with.”
