YORK TERRACE RESIDENCE
"Shortly after arriving in Perth, nearly 12 years ago, I cut out an article from the newspaper about a house in Cottesloe that had been renovated by Dean Humphrey. I was struck by the quality of craftsmanship and attention to detail which in the boom of 2006 seemed to often be lacking elsewhere. I resolved that if we were ever in the position to pursue an architect build I would engage Humphrey Homes. Ten years later we were looking to build a timeless weatherboard plantation style home and Humphrey Homes remained the obvious choice. Not only had they continued to build high quality homes but they were the only builder in Perth I had seen build an authentic weatherboard house (rather than just cladding stuck to brick). Having access to Dean, the builder, and Helen, the architect, in the same room throughout the design stage made it a fully collaborative and interactive experience. Helen quickly comprehended the feel of home we were aiming for and Dean gave immediate feedback on practical and cost implications of creative ideas we were discussing. The team at Humphrey Homes work seamlessly to not only provide the best experience possible for customers but individually contribute to improving the final result. All queries and concerns are taken seriously and responded to promptly. Everyone is accessible, informed, and clear on their role in the process. I cannot fault the design service that Humphrey Homes offer. Approachable, fair, open, efficient, and knowledgeable, Dean has extremely high standards yet still maintains a great sense of humour - all qualities essential in a process that might otherwise become highly stressful!"
