I gratefully give acknowledgment to Green Earth Homes. The job description carried out, was for additional work for my “dream home”. The need for a builder with quality workmanship & a love of his/her trade. Nathan showed all of these qualities & more, always a willingness & a passion for whatever was asked. Thank you Nathan for my wonderful recycled timber Pergola, Stairs & Additional jobs that were requested without hesitation. Warm Regards & All the Very Best to Green Earth Homes Standing by the Quality Workmanship You Provide.

Our experience with Green Earth Homes was very positive from start to finish. Workmanship was to a high standard – even our neighbours were impressed as they observed the guys in action. When problems were met along the way due to the discovery of previously unknown situations (eg. pre-existing plumbing faults) these were raised and discussed professionally. We were able to amend the scope of the initial contract in order to fix these problems rather than them being ignored and covered up. Contract administration, budgeting & the variations process were straightforward and smooth. The costs for variations were fair and if there was a case of us not clearly understanding all cost components then Nathan was at hand to explain so we always knew where we stood. We also appreciated the worksite being kept safe and tidy for the duration of the project. All in all we were very satisfied and would happily choose Green Earth Homes again. Highly recommend! Thanks Nathan & co.

We contracted Green Earth Homes to undertake our renovation. After trying in vain to find a builder for several months, many not returning calls, not turning up or just not getting back to us with a quote after spending time looking over our job, we decided to post our job on the HIA website. It was through this means that Nathan from Green Earth Homes contacted us. From the first moment, we felt we were dealing with a true professional. Calls returned, emails responded to quickly and always with a kind and friendly manner. Nathan project managed the renovation, he knew how to deal with the bureaucracy of the local council, was up to date with contracts and regulations and employed quality tradesmen. He was very hands on and undertook most of the building work himself. He has great attention to detail and understood the standard to which we wanted the job done. My husband was very impressed when Nathan presented us with a project plan and time line! Friends find it hard to believe that everything ran so smoothly, we consider ourselves very lucky that we found Green Earth Homes and have since recommended them to friends.
