We just wanted to send you a note to say thanks for the impressive job you did with our renovations. We entrusted our dream home to you and we were not disappointed with the finished result.
We thought we had a pretty good idea of what we wanted our home to feature and its layout but after a couple of meetings with you, you were able to improve on what we thought we could achieve. The ideas you presented to us will increase the joy we will get from our home for years to come.Donna and Michael Hatcher
After coming to the conclusion that we needed an outdoor entertainment area, we contacted Yolk and others to discuss our options. Yolk was the only company that charged for this service and after initially baulking at the price, we reluctantly decided to proceed with the consultation fee. They not only arrived on time but actually talked to us and wanted to get a feel for what we did in the different parts of the house.
They really listened to our needs and presented ideas that went to the heart of what we wanted. The ideas were fantastic and the consultation fee was, in our eyes, a small price compared to the value that was provided. If you have any doubts on the value of this fee for service, don’t. You will be amazed on what is delivered. By the way, the other people who supplied the free quotes spent as little time as they could with us and did not provide any ideas on the solution that we actually wanted.Jeremy Hardgraves
We are absolutely delighted by the lifestyle change that Yolk’s redesign of our Woolloongabba workers cottage has achieved. As “empty nesters”, we purchased the property with the idea of downsizing, but being able to have our family and friends visit in a relaxed atmosphere.
The 100+ year old house had been well maintained but the spaces were small, the living areas internal in the house, and cut off from air flow and light. The back of the property, which was climatically the best aspect, was inaccessible. The redesign changed all that and we now have all our living areas at the back of the house giving us access to cool breezes and lots of light. The workers cottage look remains as you enter but gradually and skilfully transitions to a more contemporary area built for today’s way of living.
We would not hesitate in recommending Yolk to others to help achieve their lifestyle changes.Margaret and Lyle Watts
At the end of our concept consultation, the parting words were ‘you will be happy with the end product’, and we are. As overseas clients we needed someone who was able to offer us an initial concept, manage it in its entirety and present us with a finished product.
The great team at Yolk have transformed our tired little house into a very comfortable, beautiful family home. We were kept updated, informed and involved with frequent progress photos and emails. We had the most stress free renovation and we are thrilled with the end result.Simon and Desiree Henderson
We engaged the services of Yolk Building Design + Drafting to undertake the challenging task of designing additional built in living, kitchen, bathroom and laundry space for our small Queenslander cottage which is situated on a challenging residential site.
We were delighted with the innovative, practical and aesthetically pleasing design presented to us. We have no hesitation in recommending Yolk’s services to any prospective client seeking a high quality service at affordable rates.John and Lyndall Eade
Everyone in the neighbourhood has followed the progress and says the addition compliments the area. Recently a passer-by said “the deck is great, it looks as if it has always been there”. Wonderful praise for Yolk’s work.
The kitchen is now contemporary and functional and conveniently located to our outdoor living area. Any problems with approvals, permits and Council standards were handled promptly and efficiently by the Yolk team. We now have a wonderful kitchen and deck to enjoy and are thrilled with both spaces.Kerry and Sharon Bell
We continue to be amazed at the practicality of the design. We are so pleased with what has been achieved. Yolk Building Design + Drafting took an ordinary brick box and created a modern, contemporary styled home suited to the lifestyle we envisaged, namely, comfortable living and entertaining, both indoors and outdoors. We are grateful to them for that.
In short, our experience with Yolk and the subsequent activity of our renovations have been most enjoyable and successful, a situation which is not always the case, if one is to believe “conventional wisdom” and anecdotes about designing and building a house.Trevor and Anne Norton
We liked Yolk’s suggestions and ideas and ability to blend old and new. They were very “up front” explaining how the business and financial side work and what to expect. Not once have we had any disagreements. Yolk are always punctual for appointments and in sending information.
There is no doubt that the team at Yolk love their work and have great pride and satisfaction in seeing it completed well. They are not prepared to accept second best but are still capable of working with a budget. We cannot recommend Yolk Building Design + Drafting highly enough, we’re sure you won’t be disappointed.Anne Townsend
