They knew what they were doing when it comes to a sustainable build and using the materials we required. If they didn’t know about the materials we specified, they would do the research and go straight to the source to find out everything they needed to, to use it and install correctly."

"Hi Jason and the team at Lone Pine Building.
I just want to thank you all so much for the great job you did installing the windows at our home. I was very impressed with the professionalism and work done by of everyone involved.I really appreciate the great communication every step along the way, emails or calls were responded to so promptly from the beginning and the job was very well organised and flowed seamlessly.
The result has been fantastic and the entire process has been a pleasure.
Many thanks to you all and we will certainly recommend you very highly to others!"

"Lone Pine Building took the stress out of building – both with their own great skills and when dealing with contractors – but knowing these guys (being mum to Andrew) I did not expect anything less.
Everything inside and out was enthusiastically taken care of, to the highest of standards, within time and budget.
They actually wanted to do a great job and I would be very happy to show off the workmanship of my home, to you, if you want to check it out before employing the Lone Pine Builders".
“The real master of this masterpiece is the wood, the recycled timber beams, the grand ceilings, the door frames, the skirting boards. The Rimu skirtings, bookshelf and door frames came from the original homestead…the farm implements we found on the station we were able to incorporate as fixtures for the home – it’s truly magical. the workmanship in all these wooden elements is just amazing…
Andrew & the team were very easy to work with, they knew what they were aiming for and brought a lot of great ideas and suggestions to the design.”
David & Marion - Mt Cook
"Building a home is a journey that is so much more enjoyable when you can trust and rely on your builder to do the best they can at all times.
We were very comfortable engaging Andrew from Lone Pine Building to build our home. We had viewed his work on a recent build which was acknowledged in the Master Builders South Canterbury competition.
We also heard good reports on his standards and aware that his apprenticeship was done under a building company well known for quality builds. We also had the advantage of knowing his family, both parents and grandparents who were meticulous operators in all they did.
Our confidence was well placed, Andrew led a small team of builders on site who competently and efficiently built our home to the highest standards we could have expected. Andrew also demanded and received the same standards from all the subcontractors involved, often receiving praise from them for this.
Andrew recently repaired another house at our request. During his final inspection of some staffs work he found some of it to be below his expectations, so he simply redid this to his standards without hesitation.
We would have no hesitation recommending Andrew for any building requirements, particularly where quality is essential and expected. His standard of work attention to detail, diligence and reliability are refreshing to experience, compared to many people today who expect you to settle for less."
Ross & Rochelle, Mid Canterbury
"It was our pleasure to have Lone Pine Building perform an extensive renovation of our 1920's bungalow in Trafalgar Street, Timaru. Throughout the process the team were courteous and professional and were a pleasure to deal with. Their communication was excellent and they demonstrated great craftsmanship and attention to detail.
They did a fantastic job retaining the period features of our house whilst catering for modern family living. They maintained a very tidy work space and were happy to accommodate our desire to live in the house (with small children) while the renovations were being undertaken.
We would have no hesitation in working with Lone Pine Building in the future and recommending them to our friends and family. Thanks for the fantastic work."
The Hamilton Family
"Lone Pine Building were very professional, they completed the build on time and really nice to deal with.
Jason always answered his phone, always pleasantly approachable and we had confidence that he would sort any issues that arose (as they always will when building a new home).
Initially our biggest fear was cost overruns. Lone Pine Building kept us informed if any increase in costs occurred and the reasons why, we were always able to sit down and discuss them to our satisfaction.
Our favourite part of the project was seeing the building progress, having daily interaction with the project team, getting to know them and feeling very much part of decisions as they arose.
We would recommend the Lone Pine Building team to others because our great experience"
"Our favourite part of the project was working with Lone Pine Building who were very well organised. Nothing was a problem.
Andrew made everything run very, very smoothly. If an issue arose it was dealt with instantly.
Lone Pine builders came highly recommended to us by a friend – so we had no hesitation in engaging the team for our home renovations. If we were to recommend Lone Pine Building, I would have to say they are a very thorough, organised and efficient business.
I would just like to say it was an enjoyable and rewarding experience working with Lone Pine Building. We would certainly employ them should we need to build or renovate again".
David and Karen, Timaru
