Ian Smith built our dream home in Paradise Beach in 2007/8. Unlike popular (and often valid) perceptions our building experience was not a traumatic one. This in spite of us living in Johannesburg for the duration of the project, apart from few interim site visits. Several aspects of Ian's approach and execution of the project stand out: Attention to detail. From the initial design, materials costing and building phases, every item and aspect was meticulously dealt with. All phases of the building process were invoiced in detail providing us with a continuous ability to monitor and manage costs. Personal attention. Ian was continuously on site and provided ongoing updates on progress and sometimes, lack thereof, due to extraneous cumstances. We were never left in any doubt as to how things were going. His patience in dealing with our many long-distance queries was admirable. Management. P E Timber homes employs a highly qualified and competent team of carpenters, many of whom I have met on the job. Their commitment and work reflects a strong but caring management input. Ongoing commitment to the project. On the few occasions that we discovered minor problems or defects in some finishes, some up to a year later, Ian has responded immediately and dealt with the problem.
The results have been beyond all our expectations and have drawn much favourable comment from friends and visitors.
Finally Ian is a professional but friendly and approachable. His business can only go from strength to strength. I have no hesitation in recommending his services without reserve. I can be contacted at any time.
