“We wanted a new deck that would be in keeping with the style of our original Federation Queenslander. Something that would integrate into the house and enhance it without blowing our budget. Bill was very, very patient with us and worked through many design options. He resolved a number of very important issues, such as water flow and roofing design. Bill worked through the project with us and went over and above the call to deliver a fantastic finished product. It was a pleasure to work with him.”
