Testimonial from Mairi Cameron.
I was most impressed with how professional and friendly both Dave and Tim were in handling the initial consult I had with them regarding doing renovations to my home. They were both knowledgable and thorough in their delivery of what they could and could not do.
I found Dave to be very creative and had a sound knowledge of what would and would not work in my home. He also took great care in listening to what my requirements were and what I wanted the to end result to be. He was alway available to answer any questions no matter how trivial or, as I thought, stupid. Seeing the actual drawings on the computer in 3D I found to be really helpful as it gave me a good idea of how things would look.
I found Tim to be knowledgable in the whole aspect of the building trade and what was necessary to complete the job to the highest specifications. He was always on hand to advice and explain the whole process from start to finish. He made sure that the contractors arrived on the day and time specified and always inspected the work that they had completed. The contractors that they used kept any mess to a minimum and were always professional and friendly.
I was highly delighted with the results of my initial renovations, so much so, that I extended the job from two bathrooms and a kitchen to four bathrooms, kitchen, laundry and flooring. Job well done. Thanks
Demo or Reno?
That was the question we pondered. We are glad we chose the latter because Stella Design and Construction have transformed our 1940s bungalow into a sleek, modern, "new meets old", unique home.All of the tradesmen they used were professional, friendly and a pleasure to work with. The many changes we made to the original plans were never a problem and approached with positive ideas and suggestions. Thanks Dave and Tim.

I am writing to confirm our engagement with Stella Design and Construction, to carry out planned renovation and extensions works at St. Louis (Private) Estate, Claremont.
The works consists of internal structural changes in conjunction with kitchen, bathroom and laundry renovations. External structural extensions.
We have found our dealings to be of a very professional manner with detailed design advice.
Nothing is ever too much trouble, no matter how small the enquiry. One obstacle we had to overcome is a discontinued brick match, Stella managed to source several sample brick packs, 2 of which were used, together with the existing bricks and the match from old to new was fantastic, resulting in a seam-less blend.
We would be happy to recommend Stella to anyone thinking of doing small, medium or large renovations or home improvements.

Re: Home Improvement Extension Works
To whom it may concern,
I would like to express our complete satisfaction for the works carried out at our property.
At the start, we found it a daunting prospect, to extend our home, we didn’t know where to start but Dave and his team were professional, informative and understanding to our needs not only in terms of design but also in terms of process, as we wanted to take things slowly.
Everyone at Stella was a pleasure to deal with, especially the site teams, who were good fun and respectful of working in our home while we were still living there.
I would be happy to recommend Stella Design & Construction.

“We were looking to build an alfresco and wanted it to look like it was part of the original house rather than an add on”. David (from Stella Design & Construction) brought our ideas to life with his knowledge and design and helped turn the concept into a reality with his computer aided design images giving us an idea of what the finished structure would look like from different elevations. From there David put together the contract and detailed designed documents and handled the building approval through the council. David took the time to go through the documents and detailed breakdown so we had a clear understanding of the process and the costs.
David and his partner Tim were easy to deal with throughout the build and quick to sort out any issues arising. The finished alfresco area looks great and we would like to thank David, Tim and all the guys for their great work on the project.

We wanted to extend our existing roof over the existing balcony but were struggling to find a reputable builder that was interested in doing a job that seemed too big or too small for some companies. Then we found Stella and we were impressed by their professionalism, right from the start. The 3D model Damon showed us was fantastic and really helped us see what it would look like before it was built. Not only that, Damon came up with some really good design ideas, one being the cedar lined coffered ceiling, which we think looks amazing, especially as it is a balcony at the front of the property, so can be seen well. The best part was being able to see a 3D design and quotation before we had to pay anything and the initial quotation stayed the same as the fixed price contract. We found the whole team at Stella very professional and a pleasure to work and would be happy to recommend them.
