TestimonialsWe are proud of our work, but don't take our word for it! Read what our clients think below
We are blown away by Jamie’s high quality finish and passion to deliver a stunning home. The build finished on budget, on time and expectations fully met and exceeded.
Jamie was available most days and evenings to discuss any matter we had. We lived 2 hours from our new home so we relied on Jamie for a lot of the decision making and to his credit he nailed it every time.
We cannot recommend both Jamie and his team highly enough. This has been a pleasure and great experience for us.
Thank you Jamie and good luck on your future endeavours.
We were looking to turn a machinery shed into a cottage on our property. The aim was to create a cottage with that WOW factor. Not being a true local to the Shoalhaven area I decided to ask fellow golf members at The Heads GC who were involved in the building trade if they could recommend any local builders. Jamie Shaw’s name kept coming up whether it be from a plumber, painter, chippy of concreter. So I called Jamie and we had a brief chat on site. Firstly, he was punctual, (pretty important to me), well presented, but still looked like he had done a hard days work on the tools! From there we met again but this time with his 2 carpenters Jimmy and Locky. We spoke openly of the proposed DA and started to take ideas and advice from all 3 of them concerning design, materials and how we can create this special project . It became very apparent Jamie and the boys knew their stuff and were as enthusiastic as us on building a cottage we could all be proud of. Part of these discussions involved roof line design, gables, internal raked timber ceilings, external stonework (that could be also used inside), getting the best effects to work in with the surrounding environment and layouts. Sort of everything an architect does but using a builders practicality. After signing cost plus contracts, Jamie gave us a detailed building timeline from start to finish. He explained why and how he engaged his subbies (plumber, electricians, concreter, stone mason, etc). From day one it was apparent the respect Jamie had from these trades people. I would chat with them and frequently I was told that when you work for Jamie you had better get it right. Jamie was continually assessing workmanship on the job. His organisational and communication skills were exceptional. We were always informed of even the most minor details and if, on the rare occurrence (usually weather or availability issues) and timing changed, we were the first to be told. We do not live on the property and our site meetings were weekly therefore these skills helped make the whole experience for us extremely comfortable. Even when it came to appliances, white goods, air cons, fires, materials, Jamie had it covered and knew where to obtain from with the best value prices. It was an absolute pleasure working with Jamie Shaw Building and cannot recommend his workmanship and professionalism more highly. If you are like us and enjoy a bit of banter with the guys on site you certainly get it with his crew. All excellent at their trades, enjoy their work and love a good sledge! Seriously, if you intend a new home, remodel or a masterpiece, contact Jamie sooner than later before he is booked out too far in advance. Our words only say so much so better just check out the photos provided.
We can see the workmanship in every detail. Your supporting trades were well managed, on time and aware of your standards which are the highest I have seen. We know the decision to engage your services was one of the best decisions we have made.
We believe the key to a good builder is how those little problems that arise are managed, and each time a little issue came up it was dealt with quickly, professionally and with minimal fuss. We would be happy to recommend Jamie and his team to any prospective client. We actually think you’d be crazy to engage any other builder.
We highly recommend Jamie and the team.
We received constant updates and pictures as well as phone calls constantly filling us in as we were not able to see the build much due to work commitments. All of his staff treated the job as if it were their own and always greeted us with a smile
Jamie’s work has been commented on by everyone that has come through our home and his attention to detail and pride he takes in his work is outstanding. We will be building again and again with Jamie and happily recommend him to anyone
