Having had a fairly ordinary experience with a major builder, we decided to go with Soverign on the basis that they would provide a personalised approach to our building needs and also do it in a space of time that was 3 months quicker than the major award winning project builder. True to form, the design process was simple and we ended up with a better design than was originally proposed – which for the record was rejected by the local council, causing yet another set back in the process.
Throughout the build it was evident that the tradespersons, whether they were brickies, roofies, chippies, tilers, garage door installers, window installers (Jason Windows v.good by the way), were prepared to assist get the build completed in a short space of time. I held many conversations with the tradies and whilst times were a little lean, they were always prepared to work on Saturday and even some public holidays to hold up their bit in the builds short time frame. Specifications determine pricing differences and Sovereign did not scrimp with their specifications and somehow the pricing remained suitably competitive. The only hiccups we had were those that were unforeseeable (ie council crossover demands).
Whilst I’m slightly biased about the look and functionality of the home, the accolades from passers-by who were constantly commenting on how quickly the build went up (especially the neighbours who were probably grateful) and how good it looked from the street.
Thanks to Tore, Dave and Enzo and rest of Sovereign team for their support. It seemed a bit over the top at the start that you could bring the build inside the timeframe you proposed… but you did, so thanks for that.
