They made it an absolute dream and I loved every step of it.

I absolutely love that I got to deal directly with the builder rather then going through a third party. We were always in constant contact and once it started it was full steam ahead. I started in June and really wanted to be in my home by December, they made miracles happen and I moved in on the 23rd of December which was amazing! I absolutely love everyday coming home to my house and even to this day I wake up and can’t believe it’s mine.

If I were to build again, I would absolutely build with Kotari. If I had to build tomorrow, I would choose them over and over again. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done.”


The thing we liked most about Kotari Constructions was the communication.

They stepped us through the process and maintained a transparent experience with us, engaging us to keep us informed of any issues or required changes. Kotari Constructions have a sense of family and welcomed us into that family.

We would definitely recommend Kotari, in fact we already have. We heard and continue to hear negative stories about people and their building experiences, but Kotari Constructions made our experience of building an enjoyable and unforgettable one. We have nothing but good things and utmost gratitude to the experience the team at Kotari Constructions provided us.”

At Kotari Constructions we were given honest and knowledgeable advice about our wants and needs which assisted greatly with decision making.

Kotari being a local family owned and operated business means that the build is far more personal, and you are not treated like just another number, this was a big tick in the box for us.

We are very happy with the build quality and the overall process and value for money, including the ongoing support offered after the build. We highly recommend the services of Kotari Constructions for anyone looking for a builder they can trust and rely on to deliver a quality home at a reasonable price. The entire journey was exciting, however you can’t beat the feeling on the day you move into your new home. To the Kotari team, well done and thank you for our lovely new home.”
