We decided to build our architecturally design home with Ainsworth Builders, on strong recommendation from Lyndon Urqhart whom Shane had recently completed a new home for in Fendalton Road.

Ainsworth Builders is a boutique building company who we have found to have quality workmanship and reliable sub-contractors, making our house build smooth sailing and an enjoyable process.

From early stages in our contract, Shane and his team were continually asking questions and giving feedback for different specification ideas with good lead times allowing us plenty of time before making our final decision.

Shane is a very hands on and personable company owner and provided us with a weekly site visit checking on building progress and his team of builders. His in-depth knowledge of the building industry and the personal touch has been a standout feature.

We are looking forwards to moving into our beautiful new home and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Ainsworth Builders to any future clients.

When considering building a new house, the worries of budget blowouts and delays in completion are always at the forefront of the decision process and with horror stories aplenty, it’s hardly surprising.

Ainsworth Builders had been allocated to us by our insurers to undertake substantial repairs to our earthquake damaged home, they delivered a stunning repair job, virtually rebuilding our 1930’s home from the inside out. Two years later when we decided to build a new home in the country, we had no hesitation in asking Shane and his team to be our builders.

While feeling a little sceptical about the 6 month build estimate for a 300+ sqm home, the builders moved on to the site exactly on schedule and we were able to move in to our new home only 2 weeks over the 6 month prediction and virtually on budget.

We have been extremely pleased in our dealings with Ainsworth Builders on both projects and found their workmanship of a very high standard and were suitably impressed with the dedication and professionalism of their builders and sub contractors.

Working with Shane has been a pleasure, he was always available and never once let us down and we have no hesitation in recommending his services to anyone considering building a new home.

We have a beautiful new house that has generated glowing reviews from those who have seen it and after 6 months in residence, we have not had to recall the builders to fix a thing.
