The six cabins that you built for Rawnsley are up and running. We accepted our first visitors on September 7th and have been quite busy since then. We are getting good reviews from people staying in the cabins. Many are commenting that they are the best cabin accommodation they have stayed in. Congratulations on the standard of product that you are delivering. For quality and value for money I think you are doing a great job. The CLH team were helpful at every stage of the process and showed real commitment to getting things right in every detail. Thank you for the good work and ensuring that we finished very close to schedule.

Just a short note to let you know how impressed we are with our new house. The whole experience of building with CLH has been amazing. We had built a house previously with a big time city builder and that experience was quite stressful however the thing that has made the biggest impression on us this time was the care factor shown by all of the CLH staff. Every time we had a transaction or conversation with any CLH staff member we were treated with the utmost respect and professionalism. Satisfying our needs to the best of their ability has been their focus from start to finish. There were no weak links in the chain and no one dropped the ball.
Thanks again and please pass this note on to all of your staff.

For our first experience as home builders, we were apprehensive as we would often hear about issues being encountered and long delays from other people who have built with other builders. Thankfully we didn’t encounter these delays with Country Living Homes. They were very receptive to our request to have our home built by a certain time and worked hard to make sure this date was met. They were always available to answer any queries we had and were friendly and helpful in the decision making process. It was also pleasing to build with a great local business. We are thrilled with our new home and have no hesitation in recommending Country Living Homes.

When April and Brenton stumbled on the Country Living Homes Office in Moonta while buying lunch next door at the Cornish Kitchen. they were convinced they were building with another Builder. However, after chatting with CLH Sales Consultant Holly Chapman they began to re-evaluate their decision, and researched their options of building with Country Living Homes. April and Brenton loved that they could custom the Bennie II a Country Living Homes favourite plan, to suit their needs and to make it their true dream design. After speaking with April and Brenton at the completion of the build they said they were extremely happy.
I was happy with Country Living Homes and their contractors I would (and do) recommend to others. I don’t know how you could improve, as the friendly, positive, pro-activeness of Country Living Homes and their contractors as individuals was excellent. Thank you for helping make building my new home a pleasurable experience.
We built the Allen home as our holiday home with Country Living Homes. No effort was spared by the salesperson to personally drive us around to show us the various styles of home either completed or under construction with the company. The staff accommodated us in “tweaking” the original design to suit our needs. The day of selection went very smoothly and with little fuss and plenty of patience as we made our choices. Being on the sea front on top of a cliff and subject to very strong winds at times and sea spray, the advice to upgrade to “Coastal Pack” has given us great peace of mind. The girls in the office were also friendly and at all times helpful and a pleasure to deal with.
We were kept very informed during the build. The supervisor and various trades used during the build were always very prompt in replying to either our phone calls or emails during the build and since completion on any queries. The trades were exemplary in their workmanship and quality of finish and great to deal with. We love our home and have received many compliments from either people walking past and having friends share our very well built and finished home with us.
Thank you to Mark and staff, we highly recommend your company.

“We were so impressed with the personalised service we received from Country Living Homes in regards to telephone communication with Mark Ravo and Holly (Sales Rep) visiting us in our home in Adelaide to discuss plans.
Julia and Jack’s support and advice at selection time was extremely helpful and the quality of standard items meant we didn't have to spend extra money on upgrades.
The house and construction build was excellent and we were delighted that handover happened a few months earlier than anticipated.
We would definitely recommend Country Living!”

We would to say thank you for our beautiful new home. It has been a real pleasure to have worked along side such friendly and professional team
We were told at the start how stressful building a new home can be. You guys have made it a pleasure. To see our new home grow, from planning to watching it being built on site. As you might not have known we lived in the caravan in the shed on site, we wont be taking the caravan out for awhile. We can't believed how quick it has taken to have built our home and now we have been living in it for a month. The workmanship was of a high quality and standard.
We would like to again say thank you for the journey and have no problem in recommending your homes.
