Fiona & James


As I sat on the weekend enjoying our "little house" I thought how I needed to write & say thankyou for the wonderful job you and your team did on our project. From the outset we were extremely impressed by your hands on style and excellent communication skills. Your design skills are such an asset to any project as every idea was discussed when deciding on how something would work and ultimately be built. You listened to my ideas and always came up with an option on how to make it work. The project management was flawless and the project was completed within the time frame and budget was tracked and accounted for transparently.

When I needed someone to work with me on the final hardscaping you made your team available and helped me again turn my ideas into a plan. Lionel & Jason are such a great asset to you, both boys displayed such professionalism and always treated the work site as if it were their own. At the end of each day the site was left clean and organised ready for the next days efforts. They were very personable and respectful of our home and my family. (including the puppies). The quality of work is evident by the form and function of the house and we absolutly love it. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you as a quality builder to anyone looking for someone to complete any project.. James and I wish you all the best for your future endeavours and please drop in if you are in the neighbourhood.

Arlidge Constructions provide a personal, quality service to each and every client; delivering them their dream home. 

To hear what our clients have to say about their experience, read the testimonials listed below some of which are clients from our award winning homes.

Arlidge Constructions completed our home in Graceville in February 2007. We had previously used Arlidge Constructions for a renovation and were delighted with the results. We therefore had no hesitation in commissioning the company to build our new home in Graceville. 

Our Graceville home is a wonderful two-storey home on a small allotment. It was judged by the Master Builders Association as the best home in Queensland on a small allotment in 2007 and this is a great credit to Steve Arlidge and his team.   
It is no surprise to us that our home is an award-winning home. Right from the start we were extensively consulted by Steve as to our needs. Steve briefed us on the stringent requirements that needed to be met to comply with the BCC’s small lot code. He also actively participated in all our meetings with the architect, Silvio Zammitt, and this close collaborative effort ensured that we were able to have our needs satisfied to the maximum. 

Consultation with clients is one of Steve’s strengths and close consultation continued throughout the project. Steve is very generous with his time for clients and nothing is too much trouble. We appreciated Steve’s efforts to keep us informed on progress as we were out of Brisbane during much of the project.  Steve assisted us in evaluating options and reaching decisions on many facets of the project including windows, bi-fold doors, flooring, and lighting. 

We are absolutely delighted with the finished product. The house is supremely functional, stylish and finished to a high level of quality.  It has exceeded our expectations in so many ways.

Hi Steve,

Truly we are at a loss to know where to begin. Thank you is not enough. With your help we have realized a dream that we have imagined for seven years and now have a home… our palace… in which to raise our two children for the next 20 years.

It all began a couple of years ago when you started to help us create our dream home. You told us what was possible and how we could achieve it. You showed us what was available and how to fit our budget.

We were so confident in your ability to deliver on your promises that we didn’t bother to get comparative quotes from people who might have been cheaper and who made promises they wouldn’t keep. We made the correct decision.

Everything that happened during the building phase only reinforced our decision to go with Arlidge Constructions. When our neighbour became troublesome you smoothed him over with your warmth and understanding. Your team was always respectful and professional when we visited the construction site.

During construction there were decisions to make and you always pre-empted them with the ideal information to enable us to make the best decision. The finish on everything was beyond our expectations. If we did it again we would change nothing!

Finally there was the completion date. We had been warned over and over by other who had experienced the building industry’s failure to meet its time commitments. You met yours exactly as you had scheduled despite delays for bad weather and other issues.

We have ‘come home’ so we offer you and your whole team… a sincere thank you!
