Many time we were warned of the pitfall of building a new house. Cost overruns, builders with their agendas, etc.
Well, those people have not met Shane and Megan Walker.
From the moment we entered their Fowler Homes office in Palmerston North enquiring about building a house to the day we took possession, the journey has been one pleasant experience.
Their friendly but professional attitudes were exemplary. We had been to many companies searching for the firm to build our house, and after our first experience with the Walkers, knew they would be the ones.
Through a long planning process, in which we were very demanding as to what we wanted, Shane and Megan were patient and attentive. They listened to all our wishes and offered great advice as to how we could achieve them.
As well, Shane had some great ideas - things that we would never have thought of.
Shane told us he was a stickler for perfection and would not accept second best - he was right. All his sub-contractors were great to work with and we had personal contact with them throughout the build. When we found a fault, it was corrected immediately and to our satisfaction. There were only minor faults. In fact Shane found areas of concern that we hadn't seen.
Now that we have possession of the house we are delighted with what Fowler Homes built for us. It is exactly what we wanted.
Throughout the whole project, we were part of every decision and, as Shane said "What we wanted we got".
We would recommend Shane and Megan to any prospective home owner.
