Twelve months ago we decided to move back to Wagga from Sydney to retire after an absence of several years. As we had previously owned a house built by Wayne Carter Homes and had been very happy with it, we contacted them to see what house and land packages they might have had available.
From the first meeting with Peta and Wayne they could not have been more welcoming and helpful. We talked about our specific needs, one of them being able to park a caravan, either in the garage or down the side of the house.
Peta and Wayne contacted one of their previous clients for whom they had recently built a house in the Estella Rise Estate who very kindly agreed for us to look through their home. This was certainly fantastic to be able to look through and actually see the spacious bedrooms, the layout of the house and the very large undercover pergola area outside. Peta made an excellent suggestion to change the plan to remove or move the media room, therefore creating a large space down the side of the garage to accommodate the caravan. This was a perfect suggestion and we quickly agreed to this change and commenced the process to purchase the block of land that they suggested would be the most suitable for both the house we had chosen and the caravan and for Wayne to build the house.
The house was commenced in May and we moved in at the end of October. Despite the amount of heavy rain we had during this period, Wayne and his excellent ‘tradies’ worked hard to ensure that the house was ready to move into by the time we needed to. While Wayne supervised the actual building, Peta was always available to assist us with the many choices that have to be made when building a house. As we were living in Sydney and could only come down a couple of times during this period, it was very reassuring to have Wayne and Peta controlling every aspect of the construction. They always responded promptly to e-mail and telephone enquiries and were kind and thoughtful enough to send us frequent photos of the progress of the construction. It was always very exciting for us to receive these regular updates and to be able to visually see the progress being made. Peta was truly amazing and always, always so very helpful and willing to discuss colours etc and reassure us that the decisions we were making were either the correct decisions or provide us with advice when we were unsure. We had complete faith in her.
The big day finally arrived to move in and we arrived from Sydney around 6:30 in the evening. We turned the corner into our street and there were Peta and Wayne waiting for us. Their faces lit up with as much excitement handing over the house to us as we felt about moving in.
We just love our house and everything is so well finished off. Wayne called in or contacted us several times in the week after we moved in to make sure everything was to our satisfaction.
We would have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending Wayne Carter Homes to anyone considering building a house in the Wagga area. You do not need to be a local to be able to put yourselves in their hands and entirely trust them. Besides the quality finish and absolute care and perfection Wayne and Peta ensure goes into every house, they are the most professional, honest, delightful and pleasant people that you could ever do business with and we thank them so very much for the care and kindness they gave to us during this time!
