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. Kobus,

We engaged Ross Turner Building (RTB) to undertake a significant extension (approximately 90m2) to our home in Bridge Street, Mt Lofty. Ross along with his very skilful and obliging team including Mick,
Lochie and David commenced in late August and completed the project by December fully within schedule and budget. As the owners we were incredibly impressed with the approach and attitude of the whole RTB team and the exceptionally high standard of workmanship that is evident for all to see in the final result.
Their attention to detail was meticulous, and we were very impressed with the quality and finish in the final result. Apart from their competitive pricing, attention to detail and adherence to the construction timetable that was agreed from the start,
the standout strength of RTB was their ability to effectively communicate throughout the project. We were kept fully informed on progress and any issues that arose, and were regularly consulted on our preferences and requirements relevant to different stages of the project. The affable and approachable nature of Ross and his whole team meant that no issue was too big or too small,
and RTB always went out of their way to respond to our requests and requirements. Our experience with RTB was exceptional and we give Ross and his team our highest possible recommendation for the excellent and professional service they provide.

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.

For some time now we realised we had outgrown our modest three bedroom home. Our third bedroom had been taken over with computer, photographic and scrapbooking products. When family members paid us a visit it was roll out the air bed in the lounge area to make available extra sleeping space and this just didn’t work. We had ideas on what we wanted in the form of an extension and we had plans drawn up, now for the builder.
Which builder do you choose? We had some minor brickwork carried out and the brickie said give Ross Turner a call he does a lot of extensions like ours. From the initial meeting with Ross to review the plans my wife and I felt really comfortable with Ross’s approach. Ross explained all aspects of how he would price the job, what he would allow etc. After Ross left from the initial visit my wife and I made the comment that “I hope Ross gets the job we feel we can work with this builder”. An extension, as opposed to a new home comes with additional issues due to the fact that the builders encroach on your privacy etc. during the work.
Throughout the entire project nothing was a problem for Ross and his team, in fact they went out of their way to ensure our extension was an enjoyable experience. The entire team of Ross, Mike, Lachlan and David conducted themselves in a respectful, professional manner. Always taking pride in their work resulting in a quality finished job. We were kept informed throughout the entire project on time frames, hold ups etc. Even some additional work was no problem, the team went out of their way to ensure a satisfactory conclusion.
Everyone that has seen the extension comments on the “Wow” factor that the extension has, we have no hesitation in recommending Ross Turner Building for any building work.

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.

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!

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.

It was one night sitting around the dinner table in our kitchen with our four kids that we realised that we had outgrown the living space in our house! Our dining room was too small for six people, our kitchen was too big and there was no outdoor area to entertain friends and family. We love living in our neighbourhood and we didn’t want to sell and move. So, after much thought, we decided to renovate our house.
Our friends suggested that we contact Ross Turner to get the ball rolling. We had never done a project like this before and didn’t quite know what was ahead of us. From the day Ross first arrived to discuss our thoughts right through to the end of the renovation we knew that we had the best person and team for the job. Absolutely nothing was a problem for Ross and the respectful, good humored and professional way that Ross worked with us through the decision making process helped us make great decisions and enjoy the process. You have to trust your builders and Ross and Michael never once let us down.
Our renovations turned out better than we ever imagined they would. We now have a big deck off the new kitchen and new dining room and there is plenty of space to enjoy being a family. We are very grateful to Ross for all he did for us and we recommend him, without reservation, to anyone considering renovations or building.
