We noticed renovations done by the O’Briens in our area for a while as we have been looking at having our own renovation eventually. A family we know had one of these renovations and recommended the OBriens highly.
We knew what we needed to have done and what our budget was. Once we met Dave to discuss our needs we felt comfortable that we were making the right decisions.
Dave then ran with it for us and Tony came up with the plans. Once the plans were finalised they submitted them to council and we really did not have to wait too long until the work could start.
Dave kept us informed and the work started in December 2006.

As it was an upper storey extension we did not need to leave the house. Despite what we had been told by others going through a renovation process the whole family enjoyed it with progress visible
every day and minimal disruption to our lives.
Once the Christmas break was over and work commenced it was full steam ahead to the completion of our much needed extension.
Even the breakthrough from the upper storey to lower for the staircase and support beams with plaster everywhere the process was great. The guys would tidy up after each days work and Matt would keep us up to date with what was going on all the time.
I constantly reviewed with Matt the fittings etc and the progress.

We were kept fully advised of costs in line with our budget. we were invoiced on time. The invoices were very clear to understand and set out all the costs per item, which is very important when you have a budget. Their attention to detail and suggestions were always of great assistance.
The work was completed in March and our son and dog in particular missed having the workmen around.
We have been thrilled with the extension and the difference it has made to our lives.
We highly recommend the O’Brien brothers for every aspect of their work. In making the process easy for us and keeping to our budget.
