About Cabana Build


"Awesome work done by Joel and Zane! Their communication was excellent and prompt. They came out to my house, took photos of the issue and gave me an approximate cost immediately. They sent through photos of the before and after with the final cost, and did an awesome job! Would highly recommend them as they were very punctual and professional. Would look to use them for any work in the future."

"Joel and Zane are professional, prompt with contact, organised, timely, and did a great job. I expanded the job from the original request into several other jobs (wooden stairs, and wood panel ceilings) and they were all done with a high level of skill and craftsmanship. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Joel and Zane for other jobs."

"Joel and Zane did a great job repairing a large section of native hardwood flooring. It was a tricky job getting the reclaimed boards to match the existing and required a lot of patience and skill to get the result I wanted. Really happy and would recommend and use again. Thanks guys!"

"Joel and his team renovated my whole house for me. They did a brand new kitchen and bathroom, painted, replaced all lights and handles etc. All looks awesome and was completed within the expected timeframe, and cost as estimated. Really great – I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them."
