I engaged Gareth Price and the team from Homing Instincts to undertake an extensive renovation in Beachlands including adding a master bedroom and walk-in wardrobe, new deck, 2 bathrooms and reconfiguring the lounge and kitchen space to make it open plan.

Having used his services in the past for other smaller projects around the house and knowing he had a good reputation in the area, he was naturally the first person I thought of when it came time for a larger project.

Gareth is professional and approachable and I have always been exceptionally happy with the level of workmanship he provides. His team are friendly and reliable and I have no hesitation in trusting them to get on with the job, even when I’m not there.

Nothing is too much trouble for him, often going above and beyond my expectations to make sure my requirements are met. He’s always happy to listen to my thoughts and ideas, implement them in the design with his own creative flair and accommodate last minute changes.

The care and thought he puts into each project is evident. He project manages from start to finish and it’s comforting to know he has a trusted crew of not only staff members, but local sub-contractors he can rely on to complete the job to a high standard.

I would highly recommend engaging Gareth and his team for any renovation or addition project and would be happy to provide further information if required.

Gareth Price and his team at Homing Instincts completely transformed our home from a tiny old two bedroom bach to a warm modern three bedroom home with spacious indoor and outdoor living areas.

Gareth successfully managed our project from start to finish. We were impressed by his professionalism, workmanship and patience (when we couldn’t make up our minds). He kept us informed every step of the way which meant that the renovation could progress with minimal disruption to our everyday lives.

Gareth and his team completed our home to an exceptionally high standard. We also really appreciated Gareth’s design input, such as: extending the native timber flooring into the “new part” of the home; and suggesting the exterior wood framing around our aluminium windows and doors which in our view gives our home a more classic look, which we love.

Most importantly, Gareth and his team are just genuinely nice, hardworking people and we really enjoyed inviting them into our home every day. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them for any building work you may have on the horizon.

I recently employed Gareth and the team at Homing Instincts to build an office at the back of my property.

I was honestly impressed by their great communication and high standard of their work. I was consulted throughout the whole process and regularly updated on where the budget was at.

I absolutely love the space they’ve created for me and the new deck is well constructed and ties it in with the house beautifully. Considering I had no plans drawn up, I was impressed with how creative Gareth was in coming up with solutions that worked in the space.

I found Gareth to be an honest, genuine and trustworthy person to deal with and would highly recommend him and the Homing Instincts team to anyone looking to have a new build, deck or renovation done.

Gareth and his team completed our deck recently. I was impressed with the level of professionalism and workmanship shown throughout the project. Gareth put me at ease from the get go, making our family a big part of process.

Best of all, there were no surprises and the project was finished on time and within budget.

I would be happy to recommend Gareth and the team  from Homing Instincts.

We had Gareth and his team from Homing Instincts come in and assist us with our completing our outdoor pool area. Gareth made it seamless with clear communication, expected finish dates being met and sticking to his quote. We have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Homing Instincts for any project.
