After looking around for an established house but to no avail, we decided to take the plunge and build our first home. We chose to take a very personal approach by designing a house ourselves to incorporate what we were unable to find in an established house.

In our hunt for builders to construct our idea, we came across many who would not consider building our design. We were struck by Ross and Sandy’s immediate enthusiasm and they personally helped us to refine our design even further. Ross was also quick to show us a home they had almost completed and it was here  that we witnessed first hand the quality of their homes and the pride that he took in the work of his team. These factors were very important to us and swayed us to choose Ross Turner Building.

Throughout the build, Ross communicated with us regularly about progress and any ideas that he had on decisions that we needed to make. He was very helpful and went above and beyond in guiding us in our selections and was always willing to discuss and fulfil any last minute changes of heart.

We often visited the house and on all occasions felt welcome on site by Ross, Michael, Lachie and David and also by the various subcontractors that Ross employs. All through the building process the whole team worked with us in a very personal manner to ensure our home reflected what we wanted. As the experience of building a house was new to us, Ross always took the time to describe everything that was happening and to answer our many questions.

Choosing a builder was not easy, with many factors to consider. Building our house with Ross and his team was such an exciting, fun and personal experience for us, and we loved every minute of watching our house come together. We would recommend Ross and his team to anyone considering building and we have no doubt that they will get both a similar experience and a quality home.

Ross and his wife Sandy were very helpful in guiding us through the whole process of building our first home.  Ross was always available, understanding and patient. His honesty and the quality of their workmanship is second to none. We were impressed by his experience and knowledge. We always felt welcome on-site and formed a personal relationship with our builder.

We are very pleased to have chosen Ross Turner Building to build us a beautiful quality home.

South Toowoomba Renovation 2016-Testimonial

In 2016, we undertook an extensive renovation of our late-1800’s built home. We had thought ourselves for some years on how we might go about this, and how affordable it might be. Being newbies at renos, we consulted friends and colleagues, and met a few builders and draftspeople, but were a little daunted as to who to choose.

Ross Turner Building was recommended to us by some friends who were previous clients of Ross, and we never looked back.

After many months of meetings, planning and tinkering of designs, we bedded down a design plan and budget that we were happy with. Ross was very patient and provided practical and honest feedback of the pros and cons about each idea along the way.

And the best part was he did it all! From concept through to final plans all were done in-house at RTB! It was such a relief not have to run around to other providers for all of this. We were confident we had found the right team to work on our home.

They started work while we were overseas, which was a little scary but we knew we were in safe hands. Over the next 24 weeks, Ross and his team project-managed the whole job! They seamlessly integrated the new additions we had dreamed of into the remaining old parts of the house. They even allowed us change things along the way, which is not easy to manage on the run we’re sure.

His own team and their trusted sub-contractors could not have been more helpful during the journey, and the communication from both Ross and team, and direct consultation from his tradies was excellent.

We were even able to use our own trusted painter to work in with RTB to complete the job.

We are thrilled with the end result, and we were even able to move in a week earlier than planned which was a huge bonus!

Ross’ motto of “enjoy your building experience” was certainly true in our case with Ross Turner Building, and we recommend him and his team for your next building project. You will not be disappointed.

We had wanted to renovate the kitchen and add a deck for over a year and one of the things stopping us was not knowing how exactly to go about it. Did we need an engineer? Or would the builder sort it? What about kitchen design? What about planning?????

Finally we decided to get some quotes. Ross Turner was the second builder we spoke to and after talking with Ross we were convinced that we had found a builder who understood exactly what was desired. After just talking to him we decided we would be using Ross Turner Building.

I remembered Ross saying at that first meeting that a good extension/renovation should be seamless, that is exactly what we got!

The standard of the work is exceptional with no corners being cut and work finished beautifully. The sub trades that Ross uses were also fantastic.

I worked interstate during a large part of the work and communication with Ross was easy with emails usually being answered within an hour.

Ross has transformed our house and the result is better than we hoped for.  We would have no hesitation in recommending Ross Turner Building to anyone thinking of renovating or extending, not only is he professional he is a truly genuine guy!

In 2014 we undertook a major renovation of our house after 5 years of planning. Having neither renovated nor built before we were anxious about the outcome and the potential for the unexpected. Two thirds of the existing house was to be demolished and rebuilt.

Fortunately we asked Ross Turner Building for quote and it very quickly became evident that Ross was the right builder for us. Over the next 6 months Ross and his team set about transforming our tired old house into what is now our wonderful family home. We are thrilled with the end result and still marvel at Ross’ ability to integrate the old and the new.

Great communication, honesty, integrity, and a commitment to outstanding craftsmanship and quality were the hallmarks of our experience with Ross Turner Building. We have no hesitation in recommending Ross for your building project.

Bluestone Cottages

Bluestone Cottages

“We recently engaged Ross Turner Building and Design to undertake the construction of a dwelling at 11 Gowrie Street Toowoomba. This was the second building in an integrated development including the redevelopment and conversion of former heritage listed shop (“The Shop”), and the subsequent subdivision of land and construction of the second dwelling known as “The Villa”. Collectively both premises now form part of the “Bluestone Cottages” complex and are being used for short term accommodation purposes. The Villa and Shop redevelopment projects were the second and third building projects that we had engaged Ross Turner to complete following a sizeable, and award winning extension to our home in Mt Lofty in 2012. The exceptional building process we experienced with Ross Turner in undertaking our house extension was duplicated in both the conversion of the Shop and more recently the construction of the Villa. A highly ethical and methodical approach results in an exceptional standard of workmanship and attention to detail, which are the standout traits of the building and design service offered by Ross Turner Building & Design. Ross is a great communicator and no request or query was too much trouble. All the projects undertaken by Ross and his highly capable team have been on budget and on time. Ross and his team are skilled at both renovation and new builds. We have been absolutely thrilled with the outcome of all three projects that Ross has undertaken for us, that we would simply not go anywhere else for our building needs. We look forward to working with Ross again in the future, and we give him and his team our highest possible recommendation”
