What our clients say about our work
“As a Building Designer myself, I wanted a builder who represented value for money and someone we could feel comfortable with when we extended our replica Queenslander. I was recommended Kevin Adsett by a client I had previously designed and drawn plans for. Upon my inspection I found the finish and quality to be excellent and the cost very reasonable.
At our initial meeting, Kevin took the time to carry out a thorough site inspection of our property and discussed the proposed plans for our extension with us. He then provided a detailed itemised quotation listing what is and isn’t included, which indicated he had taken the time to think about the project and not just pluck a figure out of the air.
During the construction process Kevin always kept us informed of what was happening, ad was always approachable if we had any queries or concerns. The site was kept clean and his tradesmen were polite and respectable towards us. And his wife Tania’s friendly and positive personality comes through in the admin side of things and she is an asset to the business.
We were so so satisfied with the work Kevin did for us, we engaged him to do a second extension a few years later. As a Building Designer I have referred him to my own clients having heard positive feedback every time. I have no hesitation in recommending Kevin Adsett from both a personal and professional perspective.”
LISA AND PAUL
“I cannot recommend Adsett Carpentry and Construction more highly. Kev and Tania literally jumped in and saved us after our builder decided to move abroad… comedy of errors really!!! This was not the easiest of jobs; new build, sloping block, bushfire requirements, water treatment, water tanks, major excavating, tree removal, and poles (lots of poles!!!). We are so thankful that our
original builder recommended Kev and Tania. They jumped in and really got the whole project moving, from dealing with certifiers/engineers and managing design flaws, to picking up the broken missus (unfortunate bushwalking incident) and taking her tile shopping. Nothing was too much. We felt ‘in the loop’ through every stage of the project, even receiving regular photo up-dates. We are so thrilled with our new home! It is well above and beyond what we had ever imagined. A fabulous end result!!”
CARA & NICK COLLEDGE
“We would like to express our pure delight with the end result of the renovations carried out by Adsett. From the first meeting to the design & layout our new kitchen & bathroom, to choosing the materials – the whole installation process ran so smoothly and to schedule. The team went above & beyond to meet our need for functionality & financial suitability whilst making it aesthetically
pleasing. Their open communications made us feel comfortable when most renovations can be overwhelming. We would highly recommend Adsett Carpentry to anyone wishing to create a new kitchen or bathroom for themselves. ”
PETER, MARIA and the GIRLS
“Dear Kevin and Tania. Thank you for our home. All through the renovation, you said this would be the house that should have been built originally and you were right. It just took 16 years to find the right builders.
Adsett Carpentry and Construction are simply outstanding in the quality of their professionalism, workmanship, efficiency and work ethic.
We were recommended to contact Kevin and Tania from our Chiropractor – not for who they engaged to renovate, but for who they should have engaged to do the work. The first thing you will find as a really positive experience with Kev and Tania is their ability to communicate with you and listen to what you want.
Without fuss Kev will tell you whether it is possible, feasible and if he has a better outcome for you. He has is a real eye for design and the flow of how a space and house should work together, especially for the demands of an older family.
We had an initial set of old plans for a renovation that we got cold feet on from 3 years ago, Kev recommended that his draftsman come to the first meeting as well, so that we could get feedback on the plans and design something better.
It was the first of many times where Kev has introduced us to professionals and tradesman that he works with. By the end of your build, you will have a list of tradesman gold – Kev will be at the top.
Any issues we had, especially with submission to council and tree roots in the sewer pipes, were outside anyone’s control and unexpected. However, Kev and Tania kept us informed, up to date with what was happening or why delays occurred.
The quoting is spot on, Kev will go through the contract and scope of works with you. Any costs or expenses not covered in the quote are outlined. Variations are issued promptly because there will always be something else you want. Our renovation was finished in under the 6 months allowed on the contract.
Offsite and rarely seen, is a remarkable woman called Tania. Preparing documents, invoices, variations and sending you homework. You will find yourself contacting Tania on small things that you’re not sure about and the bigger things in your head, which you panic over. Tania’s efficiency, communication and attention to detail, makes you realise all the more that you have entrusted your build to professional and safe hands.
We have been asked if we would do it all again and was it worth it. Yes. There has not been a morning in the kitchen, an evening sitting out on our deck or even using our new laundry that we have not felt happy, relaxed, relieved and thankful that Adsett Carpentry and Constructions Pty Ltd renovated our home.”
GLEN and JESSICA HIGGS
“We now have a functional garage thanks to Kev and his team. Kev and Tania supported us to navigate our way through our first real renovation project and have provided excellent service from our very first email contact through to completion of the job. We’re extremely happy with Kev’s work – he was efficient, professional and did a quality job. We would most certainly consider Adsett
Carpentry and Construction for our future building projects and recommend Kev to others.”
“I approached Kevin Adsett from Adsett Carpentry & Construction to undertake a significant extension to our property. Kevin was great to deal with all the way from initial quoting to final certification. I am very happy with the end product in terms of quality and the timely manner in which the project was completed.
Kevin has high standards in his work and manages his subcontractors actively. Communication was another area where it was great to deal with both Kevin and his wife Tania. I have also appreciated the proactive and practical suggestions for improving the design as construction progressed. I would have no hesitation in recommending Adsett Carpentry & Construction if you are considering a residential project.
CINDY & ROD WALKER
“We engaged Adsett Carpentry & Construction to carry out our renovation and extension after being recommended to them by a friend. This was a rather large renovation as it involved demolishing nearly 2/3 of our house and bulk excavations. We were feeling a little lost as we had received a quote from another builder whose price was considerably higher than expected. On top of that he did not seem to
take the time and effort to see what we really wanted. We felt we needed someone to not only build from a set of plans, but to guide us through the whole process. From the moment we met Kev we knew we had found the right builder. Not only did he come up with many more ideas and suggestions to gain extra space and make the home more functional, he also helped redesign the kitchen to better suit our needs. He has a great eye for detail and the finishes are superb.
Kev was very professional and easy to work with and entirely focused on our needs and what we were hoping to achieve. His team of trades people were friendly, respectful and polite at all times and the quality of workmanship and materials was of the highest standard. They were also considerate of our neighbours, often going above and beyond to try and make the project as least disruptive as possible. We found Kev to be honest, reliable and very approachable. His communication throughout the whole process was excellent and he kept us informed at every stage. His wife Tania, also kept us updated constantly via email and responded promptly, even on weekends, to any queries that we had.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Kev and his team to anyone. We are thrilled with the end result and really appreciate the hard work and effort they put into our house. All the best and thanks”
“From the moment we made contact with Adsett, the personal service and commitment to quality shone through. In addition to that, quotes were always delivered promptly and there were no hidden surprises – always good when you are on a budget for building extensions! Kevin is a fantastic builder and really nice guy to work with and so is Tania who manages the office, delivering a stellar
service that we will be calling upon again when we do our big renovation in a few years time.”
“Kevin was recommended to me by a friend six years ago and has always lived up to that recommendation. He has proven to be honest in his dealings (even doing himself out of work), realistic with his pricing and good with his communication. He also shows a genuine interest in the customer and doing a good job. The administration side of the business is well looked after by his wife Tania and they are
always a pleasure to deal with.”
MIKE & KERRI GUNN
“Hi Kev, Thank you for the professional service from you and your team. It was our first major renovation and the experience has been a very pleasant one. You delivered what you promised and involved us every step of the way. We are very pleased with the quality of the finished project. Thanks again”
NICOLA & RICHARD
“A fantastic job done Kevin, thank you so much for being professional, honest, thorough and friendly. What more could you want.”
PETER and CAROL LEECH
“Dear Kev and Tania
Re: House alterations and additions Scott Street Deagon
Carol and I would like to thank you very much for the outstanding work done in regards to the above. After seeing the excellent work done on the construction of our son’s house at Norman Park there was no doubt that Kevin would be the preferred builder for our work. The finished workmanship is to a very high
standard and there is no doubt that Kevin takes pride in his work and is very competent in his carpentry skills and expertise. All work was done in a professional manner with attention to detail and in accordance with the required building codes.
Kevin was very approachable regarding any queries that we had and offered sound advice in all matters pertaining to the work. The other tradesmen employed in the work other than carpentry work were selected by Kevin for their expertise and professional manner.
We would have no problem in recommending your company for any carpentry and construction work.
LEE and LYN JOHNSON
“We recently added an extension and renovated downstairs at our house. Kevin and his team did a great job. He is a ‘hands on’ builder and gave us ideas and good advice. We can honestly say our Reno came in on time and on budget and looks better than we ever dreamt. Thank you so much Kevin and Tania”
LEE and LYN JOHNSON
“This is the second renovation that Kevin has done for us and once again he nailed it!” We did not bother with other quotes we just went with the builder we trust with our house. Thank you Kevin and Tania”
SHERI & SHANE ADAMS
“Kev and Tania were easy to deal with and very accommodating any time we needed to make changes along the way. The completed job was to our own high standards and most importantly completed on time. We love our extension/renovation which looks seamless and part of the original house. If we ever relocate and renovate Kev and Tania will be the first people we call.”
CAMERON & MADELINE
“I have engaged Kev from ACC on several occasions and found him and his team to be extremely professional, punctual, reliable and efficient. From erecting a fence to renovating our bathroom and kitchen, Kev always delivered each and every project on time and to the highest standard. I would not hesitate in recommending Kev for any project you may have.”
“One phone call to Kevin and it’s sorted. He is a great communicator and has a great sense of business efficacy. I call him the Kevinator!”
PAUL & WENDY
“We couldn’t recommend Adsett Carpentry and Construction high enough. Kev is a breath of fresh air and his wife Tania, who handles all the necessary paperwork, is a pleasure to deal with.The work was always done exactly to the time frame and he never ever compromised the materials used or the quality of how things were done.We were so impressed with the quality of the workmanship. Kev organized everything, directing us as to what needed to be done and when to have it ready.
Getting closer the final stages of completing the job, we were so impressed we asked if he would build our pool deck as well. He never let us down and commenced work on the pool deck. We love it! There is not a day or night that we don’t sit or entertain on our deck enjoying a beer and wine.
The work that Kev and Tania have done to make our house like a resort is unbelievable, we really don’t need holidays away when everything is here at our fingertips.From the moment they started work on our project we felt very comfortable and extremely trustworthy of the staff. Couldn’t find better people. We have referred many of our friends to ACC and we would without hesitation, recommend them to anyone who is after a flawless quality job.”
KELLEY and ROB
“Hi Tan and Kev As first-time renovators, we could not have asked for a more experienced, competent, honest or hardworking builder. We were always impressed with your attention to detail and ability to devise solutions when things did not go to plan, as they inevitably do. Your assistance with the planning, certification and approval processes was invaluable, we would never have been able to transverse these processes without you. You were extremely
“hard-working, thorough and prompt in explanations of all aspects of the building process and committed to working with us on building a high-quality verandah (deck) for our home. Your honesty, integrity, and dedication truly distinguishes your building company. We will certainly be recommending your company to all our workmates, friends and family. We now have a magnificent verandah that catches the cool summer breezes and provides our family with the extra living space we needed, we cannot thank you enough for this fantastic addition to our home.”
BRIDGETTE and RUSSELL BREDDIN
“Dear Tania and Kev Thank you so much for creating a fantastic outdoor entertaining area. The space that we have gained has changed the way in which we live. We had contacted a few builders before contacting Kev and all of them either failed to turn up to do the quote or turned up but we never received the quote. Kev was the only one who genuinely seemed keen to provide a good service.”
“Kev and his team have produced a quality deck and entertaining area and we are thrilled to say it has been used every weekend since the completion of building. We found our dealings with Kev and Tania to be very professional with notification in advance on when payments were due and an extensive contract provided to us so that we were fully aware of what was and was not included. “
“The workman that attended our house were always polite, professional and undertook the tasks assigned to them within the time frames allocated. We have recommended Kev to several friends and family members and we already know that when we are ready to do further work to our house, we will have no hesitation in engaging Kev again.”
LYNDAL & GRAHAM
“Dear Kevin & Tania
Thank you so much for a fantastic job on our renovations. Kevin, you proved all the other builders wrong, who said the job couldn’t, wouldn’t and shouldn’t be done! The outcome is beautiful and we can’t wait for summer to take full advantage of the doors.”
“We found you to be professional, courteous, and very informative of the processes involved and extremely neat and tidy. Your subcontractors were also polite and professional. We would be more than happy to recommend your services to any prospective client. Once again, thank you.”
