We’re forever grateful to Jamie and his team for our beautiful home. We appreciate the amazing experience we had with him since our first meeting and even now that it’s been almost 3 months since the Handover.
Moreover, we appreciate all the other unexpected things he did for us that resulted in a charming home that we truly love. For building our home as if it was his own, no words are enough to thank him and his team. We, therefore, would highly recommend Jamie Shaw Building to anyone looking for a reputable Home Builder in the Shoalhaven region.
We have just taken the keys to our new custom designed home constructed by Jamie Shaw Building.
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.
Thank you Jamie and your team for the amazing job on our build. From my 1st nervous call 2.5 years ago, seeking advice, to the finished product this month you have been supportive, helpful and courteous. Your skill and craftsmanship is excellent. We could not be happier. Our build was a large garage however you gave it the same respect and attention to detail one would hope to find in a builder building a prestigious home.
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.
Jamie Shaw and the team recently completed a renovation on our home. We had a vision to open up our older style house to give it an open modern feel. Jamie & the team at JSB made it a reality. Jamie is a perfectionist and takes great pride in his work – his work is second to none. He communicated with us daily and was there for us every step of the way. He really went above and beyond for us, and the end result speaks for itself.
We highly recommend Jamie and the team.
Jamie and his team from the very start of our building process gave nothing less that excellent service
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

We got Jamie and his crew to completely renovate our bathroom circa 1970. We were very lucky that Jamie could start quite soon after accepting the quote. His crew came in and within the first 3 days had the demolition done, asbestos removed, plumbing and electrical roughed in and new villaboard installed. From start to finish took them 23 working days. Jamie’s guys and all of the sub-contractors were all great. They came on time, put down the drop sheets, did their job and cleaned up after themselves every day that they were here. Jamie came every day to inspect the work that had been done and (on the odd occasion, when he wasn’t completely satisfied with the work), would make sure that it was fixed to his very high standard. Jamie himself was very easy to work with. He always treated us with respect even though we are just DIY renovators. We were able to talk through our ideas with him and fine tune and change things so that we ended up with a bathroom that is well designed and works really well. We provided all the PC items and Jamie was very generous with his time to make sure that we knew exactly what his guys needed at what time. He checked in often with us to make sure that we were happy with the progress and standard of the work being done. Jamie was also happy to work with us on ways to help keep the price down. My husband did the timber benchtop, the painting and the ceiling of the room under the bathroom that needed to be removed and replaced in order to get access to the upstairs plumbing. The bathroom came in on budget with minor cost overruns due to changes that we wanted; Jamie always talked it through with us and any additional cost was fair. This was the first time that we have hired a builder in to do a whole job. We’ve done most of our own renovations in the past and know what is involved in a project of this magnitude. My husband is a perfectionist wood worker and Jamie and his crew were able to meet his high standards. Jamie was also generous with his time giving instructions to my husband on how to go about installing a dropped ceiling in the room underneath the bathroom. The finished bathroom is fantastic. It’s been fully operational for almost 3 months and we still get a great feeling of satisfaction every time we walk in there. If you need a building or renovation job done well – you won’t be disappointed if you get Jamie Shaw Builders to do it. We can’t recommend them more highly.
