"After two plus years of design and tendering, we appointed abode construction as our builder at the start of 2012. Our job consisted of a major extension to our c.1890's cottage in Teneriffe, more than doubling the floor space, including a new master bedroom, 2 and a half bathrooms and kitchen/lounge/dining, and deck.
During the construction period, we found Justin to be very accommodating and open to requests, and skilled at dealing with the myriad of problems that renovations on old inner city properties are renowned for. Justin estimated a four to six month build time, and managed to achieve this. After at least 8 weeks worth of rain delay, where the project was at a standstill, and DA issues to boot, we were back in the house 6 and a half months after we vacated.
We have now been living in our completed house for 6 months and are more than happy with the quality of the build. We would not hesitate to use Abode again for future projects."

"We were very happy with Justin and his team from Abode Construction. Our project was a major renovation of a Queenslander. From the design stage to completion, Justin listened to us and delivered a high quality construction- on time and budget. We couldn't be happier with our new home and would highly recommend Abode Construction to anyone."

"In November 2010 we contracted Justin Andrews of Abode Constructions to build an extension to our home of 25 years in Red Hill after gaining references from his previous clients. The project consisted of a one bedroom self contained apartment at the front of the house which is on a small block on a very steep street. The site was therefore constrained physically and by local character housing regulations.
Justin and his team commenced the project in January 2011 and had it all completed on time and on budget by April 2011 despite some very wet weather. All aspects of the construction were very professional. Justin was always very approachable and available to discuss any variations which were easily costed and agreed.
His staff and contractors were all very professional, courteous and easy to get on with. His site manager Simon in particular was great to work with and very helpful in determining finishes with us. We continued to live on site during construction and this was never a problem for the Abode team or for us.
Justin's long experience in housing project management was very evident in all his dealings with us.
We are very happy with the extension and the quality of the workmanship. We would thoroughly recommend Justin and the team at Abode for any domestic construction project."

"Our experience with Abode was very positive and we're very happy with the work that was done and the end result. Communication was great, work site was clean (which was important as we had two young kids during the build), and all the crew were friendly and easy to get on with."

"We want to thank Justin and his team for building our dream home. In April 2016 we bought a tripled gabled house with 3 beds and 1 bath and Justin and his team transformed it into a 4 bed, 2.5 bathroom home.
He guided us through the design process and we worked together to identify and calculate all cost from the outset. We had a fixed budget and needed to know what we were letting ourselves in for.
Justin's knowledge, attention to detail and level of workmanship must be commended. He has a skilled team and reliable contractors. Sean was the supervisor for our build, he was professional, resourceful, and always had time for us.
It is now March 2017 and we are about to move in - on time and within budget - we couldn't be happier with our new home and would highly recommend Abode Construction."
