Dearest Werner, we have just spent 2 weeks in Glencairn. Bless you for building such a wonderful house for us. I am grateful each time I come here. Everything is always fine 🙂. Just wanted to mention it this time.
Rustic Homes built our house in 2019. After speaking to other timber frame construction companies in Cape Town, meeting and working with both Werner and Christelle was a pleasure. Werner as the company owner and builder was very knowledgeable, accommodating and reliable. We always felt that we were in good hands throughout the process. Christelle, the office manager was friendly and efficient, keeping us updated throughout and all the paperwork in order. Once the guys started on site, the work was done quickly and professionally and the team were friendly and tidy. Unlike all the building horror stories, Werner and his team produced great work and met the building deadline. At the end of the build we were very happy with the result and quality of the workmanship. Futhermore, any very minor snags were dealt with immediately. I would not hesitate to recommend Rustic Homes to anyone wanting a well built timber frame house.
We have always admired the Rustic Homes in our area(Pringle Bay), and when the opportunity to acquire one arose, we did so. The original house was built as a holiday home and we had the intention to move in permanently, so alterations were needed. We got Bobby Wellman to do the design , with a little help from ourselves. We got a number of quotes, however secretly knowing that we would like the original builders of the house to do the alterations. After considering and meeting with the builders, the decision to go with Rustic Homes was an easy one. Werner Slabbert (owner of Rustic Homes) friendly demeanour, years of experience in timber construction, as well as the very experienced staff he had, all convinced us to invest with them.
This was our first experience in renovating a home, with a limited budget, as well as a very specific time frame. We embarked on the project -what a pleasure it was, we felt part of the project from the start, the staff as well as Werner went out of their way to keep us informed of progress and timelines. No request we had was turned down, hanging pictures etc, not part of the job specs was carried out without complaint and added to the feeling we had of getting more than what we had bargained for.
We are happily living in our renovated home, very pleased with the result and investment made, slightly over budget because of practical suggestions made by Werner that have added to the properties value and that needed to be addressed anyway i.e. replacement of existing roof, gutters etc.
We would not hesitate in recommending the Rustic Home team for new builds or renovations, it has been a pleasure working with them. Truly master builders who deliver a quality timber home.
