    "Last year my husband and I bought a flat. It was a 'Do Up' and was to be my project... never done it before and it has taught me a lot. I am so pleased that John Rowley was recommended to me. Thanks to his advice, help, explanations, knowledge and personal expertise the flat looks - and is - terrific. And not only is his accounting meticulous and honest ... he is also a nice easy to talk to... and didn't charge for all the time we discussed things. .. If you read this John... Thank You."

    "John has undertaken a number of jobs around our house, from building an ensuite and a walk-in wardrobe to stripping and rebuilding various rooms in our hundred yr old villa. We have always found his workmanship to be top class and his service professional and friendly. We would happily recommend John to any of our friends."

    "John at J R Building helped us out with our kitchen and office renovations. Along with doing the building work, he organised the joiner, plumber, and electrician for us. He was very friendly and easy to communicate with, and carried out good quality building work. We are really happy with the finished product and would highly recommend J R Building. Love our new kitchen and office!"

    "John has completed two jobs for us now, and we are very pleased with both results. John and Phil are about to being our next project and they have already spent some time with us helping us to work out what\'s going to look best (its a renovation) and have made some excellent suggestions, things we wouldn\'t have thought of which I believe is going to take the finished piece of work to the next level. I would recommend J R Building for a number of reasons - quality of work, cost, etc. but have to say, communication and trust are an absolute strength - head and shoulders above past tradesmen we have used."

    "John and his team built a large deck at our house. The project has two stages, and we will certainly use JR Buliding again when we go on to build the second level. We especially appreciated the thoughtful way that John addressed problems with what the architect had specified with us, and offered solutions that improved the end result, and saved costs where approppriate. For example, the specified hand rail was narrower than the specified posts, leading to a mismatch. John didn\'t just go ahead to build it as drawn, which would have made a very odd looking result. Instead, he went the extra mile to raise the issue with the architect, and with us, explore sourcing a wider hand rail, discover that nothing was available in the market, consider other options - such as narrower posts, and then go on to craft a handrail himself from scratch. We are very impressed with the service, and recommend JR Building highly."

    "My wife and I have used John for a number of building projects around our family home in the last few years, most recently the renovation of our dining and living area in Nov/Dec 2010.

    We have always been pleased with John\'s quality workmanship and attention to detail. All the work he has done for us has been completed on time and within budget.

    John is easy going and was great to deal with - he was proactive when faced with complications and always communicated well with us during the building process.

    I\'d have no hesitation in recommending John to anyone looking for a quality no nonsense builder.

    "We have a older 1930\'s home. John did the building work on our new kitchen in October 2010 which included raising the ceiling back to its original height, regibbing the walls, repairing the floor and turning a doorframe into an archway.
    He did an excellent job and we would happily recommend him.
    John also has a good network of tradespeople who are just as reliable which made our kitchen project that much easier.
