We chose Nest Bespoke homes to build our luxury home on the Manly Terraces after being recommended by a friend who had a similar great experience building with Ryan.

Our design was quite bold placing the pool within a centre courtyard of the home having exposed structural steel suspended over the pool to support the upper floor. Additionally we had some unique finishes such as a seamless garage with custom clad door and a stepped slab design. Ryan was able to provide practical advice into the design and constructability of these elements which enabled us to save money without compromising on the aesthetics which is always appreciated.

Ryan and his team were fantastic communicators and we were always informed of progress and construction remained on program the whole time. The site was always clean which is a sign of an organised site.

Due to the quality of the drawings and clarity within the specification and contract, the build price was certain and we didn’t have any variations.

We built this specific home with the intention on selling it upon completion to turn a profit. Amazingly, an interested party who had been watching the build progress made direct a direct offer to purchase the home as it was nearing completion. This customer was impressed with the quality of the build and the uniqueness of the design. The price was a record for a two story on Kingsley Terrace which is a testament to the quality of the home.

We’re looking forward to building with Ryan and Nest shortly for our next project and wouldn’t hesitate to Recommend Ryan and his team.

Hi Ryan

It’s taken a while to write a review which is probably a good thing because we have really had time to reflect on the process and what you have created for us. Mandy and I would like to thank you for delivering on your promise. We have built a few homes and have never had an experience as pleasurable as it was with your company. The patience, time and effort it takes to deliver a project that is on time on budget and with really good quality is not an easy thing to do but you have delivered in spades. The tight block and Character Code we had to comply with and the help you provided to design our home has ensured it will be a fantastic family home to just live in.

Obviously this can’t happen without great trades and supervision. Phil did an awesome job on the supervision and we can’t thank him enough. His skill as a carpenter and his attention to detail has ensured a real quality build.

The system you use (Buildertrend) to track the project is fantastic. I am a real fan as it allowed us as a client
to track it daily. Everything that happened or that was to happen was at our disposal. We could track our selections against our budget and knew exactly where we stood all of the time. If I had a criticism it would be to post more photos but that could be due to the fact I am watching from 1200 kilometres away and couldn’t just pop out to the site whenever I wanted to.

Thank you very much for everything you have done. We would most certainly be available for anyone that wanted to speak to us about the build, the process and the fun we had building with you. It’s a real pity we wont get to live in the home and really enjoy it for the home it is.

Hi Ryan,
Amy and I would like to say a ‘massive’ thank you for our new house. We are both blown away at the end result and could not have ever imagined we would live in such an amazing house just a few short months ago.

It was a huge gamble for us financially to select Nest Bespoke Homes over a project builder especially considering it was our first home build however it didn’t take long during the construction process that is was evident we made the correct decision. All of the products you utilised are all of great quality and your trades people bring everything together perfectly.

We appreciated your transparency, openness and availability throughout the construction and would also like to make particular note to your trades especially your carpenter, painter and tiler. Their attitude of going above and beyond for your clients was extremely apparent. It is also incredible that your communication and service levels after handover have not faltered.

Once again, we would like to thank you for the hard work you have displayed and the quality of build you produce. We are happy to now call you a friend and we look forward to building with Nest Bespoke Homes again in the future.

We recently added another room to our house and right from the start everything was easy with Ryan and his fantastic team.

Although only a small job we never felt like anything was too hard or that it was any less important than any other job. Every detail was considered, and the communication and transparency made it an enjoyable experience.

The thought of living in a house with two small children and having walls pulled down was daunting, but the impact was minimal and the cleanliness was impeccable.

We were impressed with every element – from the effort to make sure the new addition flowed and matched with the house to the clean-up at the end.

We would highly recommend Ryan and the Nest Bespoke Homes team to anyone without any hesitation, and would not even question working with Ryan again.

We can’t thank you guys enough – we couldn’t be happier.

Dear Ryan,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank yourself and the team at Nest Bespoke Homes for the quality finished product that you have designed and built for us and that we are now so proud to call our home.

After much consideration by my husband and I, we decided that we would take the plunge and build for the first time and all I can say is we are so happy we did!
We were beyond impressed by the overall professionalism from yourself and colleges throughout the entire process from the planning and designing, colour selections through to the organisation and quality of the trades has made the overall experience for both my husband and I enjoyable and stress free.

Thank you for so much for everything and we will be sure to recommend your business to anyone wanting to build a quality home in the future.

We had our Hawthorne house substantially renovated and extended by Ryan, Phil and the team at Nest over the past 6 months, this being the second time we have built with Ryan.

It was a smooth process from start to finish as expected, with any unexpected problems or concerns followed up and dealt with promptly by both Ryan and Phil.
The whole crew were very accommodating with us choosing to live in the property for the entirety of the build while they worked around our life, keeping a tidy and safe job site at the same time. They were more than accommodating with our request for the order of work that allowed us to maintain facilities such as the bathroom.

We are extremely pleased with the finished product they have left us and the level of professionalism shown by all the staff. We would not hesitate to use Nest Bespoke Homes again in the future.

From the initial meeting with Mr Britton to the completion of our home, we were provided with excellent service. Mr Britton was instrumental in working alongside us to complete a design that complemented our lifestyle and family life, taking our needs and wishing into consideration. His understanding of design principles and how to meet a client’s needs was evidenced by the exceptional floor plan and overall home design that was completed.

Mr Britton’s depth of understanding of the building industry was evident from the onset as he supported us to navigate building a new home which was new to us, providing us guidance and advice as we progressed through the build. Mr Britton demonstrated excellent communication skills as he stepped us through each stage of the building process and his intensive hand’s on approach to project managing the build provided us with the confidence that we would be delivered a quality product.

Mr Britton’s eye for detail and intimate knowledge of our home design and interior ensured the highest quality of workmanship was delivered and any concerns, issues, or errors were addressed effectively and efficiently.

Mr Britton’s knowledge and experience in this industry was instrumental in the successful completion of our beautiful home and we are grateful to have had the opportunity to work with such a skilled professional.

We live at Lota and our house was architecturally design by Think Tank Architects and construction completed in 2012.

Ryan in his role of site supervisor supervised the construction of our home. Constraints of Brisbane City Council narrow block building regulations, issues with the block itself and our own open plan design requirements, resulted in very complex and unusual construction requirements in both the foundations and structural build.

By renting a small house adjacent to our building site and being retired I was able to observe construction progress at all times. I was extremely impressed by the quality of trade work and the attention to detail that Ryan insisted on.

From commencement to completion Ryan welcomed me onsite at anytime and on a regular basis would walk me through the site explaining various aspects of construction and at times suggested ideas for improvements or practicality relative to the architects design. Whenever I requested a change from the plan, nothing was too much trouble and I found him to be extremely obliging. I was also impressed with the manner in which the whole worksite was always kept tidy and free of rubbish at Ryan’s insistence.

At 70 years of age it was a little daunting to take on building a new home. However dealing with Ryan soon put my mind at ease and the whole project became an exciting and pleasurable experience.

I have the utmost confidence in Ryan’s ability and sincerity to produce a home to the highest standard that will satisfy the most discerning client. I have no hesitation in recommending Ryan to any prospective client and I would definitely engage Ryan should I decide to do build again.

We have recently built our house with Ryan Britton as our building supervisor, designer and draftsman. He did a fantastic job making sure everything ran smoothly, nothing was ever too much trouble and his attention to detail was amazing.

From our first meeting with Ryan we were confident in him as our supervisor. He listened to what we wanted in our house and designed a house that is so functional and suits our family’s needs. Nothing was ever too much trouble for Ryan.

As our house began to take shape we were further reassured in his ability to have his finger on the pulse with the building process. His subcontractors were also ready for praise of the excellent job that Ryan does. One of the carpenters told me that we were indeed lucky to have Ryan in charge of the building process; he said that he was one of the best supervisors he had ever worked with. We were so happy with how our house came together in fact we were able to see progress every day, which is something you want when you’re counting down the days until you move into your house.

We indeed will be going back to Ryan to help us build our next house when the time arises and would have no hesitation in recommending him to our friends and family.

Ryan Britton supervised the building of our home in 2013. He came highly recommended by other people in our neighbourhood who had had their own builds supervised by Ryan. We were very happy with the supervision Ryan provided during the building process. He was always contactable and was at the site everyday to ensure the process went as smoothly as possible. Whenever any problems arose, Ryan handled them quickly and efficiently. Ryan was also intent on providing a quality product and always made sure that his employees and subcontractors completed their projects to a very high standard. Ryan supervised a large number of homes in our neighbourhood alone and his skills as a supervisor are always complimented.
