In 2018, we engaged David Prior Homes to extensively renovate a beautiful 40 year old timber home nestled into the forest hillside at the back of Palmwoods.  The home was architecturally designed back in the mid 70’s and was suffering from age and begged for some love and design modifications.


David and Alison came highly recommended from various professionals we had working on the design and compliance side of the renovation.  After a small tender process, it became apparent that David Prior Homes was the most suitable builder for our project, being timber specialists and competitive on price.  We appreciated the upfront opinions and recommendations David brought to the table prior to the commencement of construction and we found his wealth of practical knowledge around all-things timber so valuable.

As in most renovations, once the skin is peeled back the true condition of a home is revealed, and this can be a scary scenario.  David and his experienced team of carpenters were adept at not only identifying the extent of additional work required but coming up with cost effective solutions and presenting them to us with all the options.  Just as importantly, David also engages subcontracting trades that he has vetted and is assured of their workmanship.

The resulting product of 3 months work was an amazing timber masterpiece that surpassed our expectations on so many fronts.
