Goolwa Beach

We were facing the challenge of a major renovation to our house at Goolwa Beach and Gary was highly recommended to us by a friend who had recently engaged him for similar work. And he did not disappoint. Gary’s attention to detail was outstanding. He was able to easily accommodate the changes we made during the construction period and we happily accepted some very beneficial changes he suggested along the way. What impressed us the most was his professionalism, flexibility, and the personal pride he took in his work – to us it felt like he was working on his own house. A project successfully completed on time and on budget and we continue to enjoy our ‘new house’ 5 years on.

When we were looking to extend and renovate our office, Gary was the first person we thought of.  He had done a few small jobs for us in the past and we had been impressed by the quality of his work and professionalism. The process to first add an extension to the office building then shift everything to the new part of the office so that we could renovate the old part of the office, all while still remaining fully operational and open to clients, appeared to us to be a daunting process.  However, in our initial discussions with Gary he quickly put our minds at ease and made us certain that he was the man for this job. During the building process Gary was excellent at communicating to us what the next step would be and did his best to coordinate the work around our office schedule.  Gary and all the trades people that worked with him were all very friendly and accommodating to the needs of everyone in the office and all worked to cause as little disruption to us and our clients as possible. We found that the work done by Gary was of high quality and that he was very thorough with all that he did.  Whether it was choosing colours, door fittings or discussing kitchen and bathroom layouts, we found Gary’s input to be honest and informative and it helped to take the stress out of things.  He is very approachable and no job was too small for him to do. We are so proud of the end result that was achieved and have Gary to thank for that outcome.  We would highly recommend Gary for any building work and would not hesitate to use him again.  Thanks for all you did to our office, it is greatly appreciated.

Maslin Beach

ln 2011 we had completed our design of the renovation of a basic transportable house plus extension on our vineyard at Maslin Beach. We asked Gary Adams to have a look at the project and as a result engaged him to proceed’ We were delighted with the final result. The workmanship and finish was of an extremely high standard and throughout the whole process we had regular consultation and input resulting in a finished product which more than met our expectations. We have no hesitation in recommending Gary Adams for your next build or renovation.

Just a quick note to say thanks for the excellent new balcony you recently built at Middleton for us. For us it was stress-free due to the smooth running of the building process. Firstly, we really appreciated the level of consultation throughout the building process. To have such good communication was really helpful in guiding our decisions and helping things go smoothly. As well, the job was completed on time and on budget which I think these days is a rarity.

Dale and I contracted Gary on 2 separate occasions to renovate our 100 year old property. The first step was to re stump, re roof, re wire and build an entire new balcony.  Gary was amazing , he handled the process with clear precision and communicated with us all the way. The second step was to demolish the old extension and rebuild a new one. Again Gary exceeded our expectations. We can thoroughly recommended G & D Adams , communication was fantastic and his workmanship is of very good quality. He has excellent trades to support him throughout the process.
We highly recommend Gary and are very happy with our beautiful new home.

Our building project was a large extension to our character home, which including WIR & ensuite, main bathroom, laundry, kitchen with butler’s pantry and living space with large outdoor entertainment deck. We initially chose Gary for our renovation project based on positive feedback from friends and his very competitive quote. What was really appealing was his flexibility and willingness to work with us to create our dream home. Other builders were not as willing for us to be as involved as we wanted to be, or as flexible in the design and building process. Not having a fixed contract was also incredibly beneficial, as we could make changes as needed, and pay for works as they were completed, allowing an adaptable budget. Gary’s workmanship is of a very high standard. Some builders rush through things to move onto the next project but Gary will make sure the end result is perfect. His tradesmen were all friendly, punctual and respectful – this was a plus when we were living on site through parts of the project. Gary was always available by phone and would consult us throughout the process with any updates, questions or concerns. He really was part of our family over the year and will remain a friend. Everyone warns you that building is a nightmare and the most stressful experience, but we had very few hiccups and could not be happier with the result!

Gary has done several building projects for us and has recently completed a significant kitchen/family room renovation. This involved the relocation of the kitchen, replacing the rear wall with sliding doors/windows and other window repositioning. The project proceeded to a very high standard without incident and was completed on time despite a very tight time schedule. His construction workmanship was of a very high standard and he was extremely easy to deal with. He always left the house tidy and final clean up was excellent. We have no hesitation in recommending him to any prospective clients.
