We would like to thank Lucas and all the team at Harlor for building us such a beautiful home. The level of quality is second to none and the team were always a pleasure to deal with. Any questions we had were always answered promptly and we always knew where we stood, there were no uncertainties which made the build a very enjoyable and special time for our family. We had so much fun that we would love to do it all again with Lucas and the Harlor team. Happy to recommend to any of our friends and family. Paul and Renee
Berry Limestone House

This is the second home that we've built and our first experience could only be described as horrific, so we were quite anxious about finding the right builder for our future home at Berry. Lucas was recommended by a friend and we found the experience of building with him to be stress free and the exact opposite to our first build. Lucas listened to all of our requests and comments from our first meeting with him to the final handover and we are happy to say that we had no concerns at any time, which was a huge relief.
We could not recommend the Harlor team, which is led by Lucas and Louise more highly. Our dream home has been built from limestone, which is not one of the usual materials being used at the moment, however Lucas sourced the best people for the job (Brick Effects) and the end product is something that we are both extremely proud to own. Lucas thinks outside the box and where there could have been delays he organised for other things to be completed to keep the build progressing. Lucas expects perfection from all of his trades and from what we witnessed, he is respected by everyone which we imagine is due to his honesty and open communication. The highly professional team that Lucas employs has resulted in a meticulously built home that has far exceeded our expectations. We were also really impressed that he used local suppliers where possible and we are happy that we have been able to support our new community.

It is now approaching 12 months since we moved into our new home, so it is well overdue that we express our sincere appreciation to Lucas and his team for all their wonderful work and efforts.
Building our own home was something we had always dreamed of doing but having heard an abundance of bad experiences from friends and relatives, we approached the task with some degree of trepidation. The key factor in the difference between a great experience to a nightmare appeared to be the choice of builder. Which explains why it took us three months of research, site inspections and reviews before deciding that Lucas Harlor Building would be the best fit for our needs. A decision that has been vindicated several times over.
Thanks to Lucas and his team the entire end-to-end building process was a fantastic experience. From our very first meeting with Lucas through to handover our expectations have been exceeded in every way. The quote was easy to understand, transparent with no hidden surprises (best evidenced in the fact that variations were minimal) and throughout the building phase we always found Lucas accessible, supportive and pro-active in keeping us informed on progress and all developments. We never had to chase or surmise with all phone calls and emails promptly responded to. Trustworthiness was at the core of our relationship with Lucas. He always delivered on what was promised and had the honesty to challenge any decisions which were not in our best interest.
The working relationship was an absolute delight with each trade and team engaged by Lucas having the same “can do” attitude, attention to detail and dedication in achieving quality outcomes. Their flexibility, professionalism and excellence in workmanship was second to none.
Our new home is just perfect, we absolutely love it. Although it has been almost a year since completion, we can’t help but marvel every time we walk through the door.
We have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Lucas Harlor Building.

Lucas is an honest, reliable and particular builder who is very pleasant to deal with. Together with his wife Louise he runs a tight ship.
We were impressed by the length of time his tradesmen have worked with him - a sign of a contented team. Every time we visited the site, it was a hive of activity and our neighbours also commented on how hard everyone seemed to be working.
Lucas guided us through the decision making process in a very orderly fashion, phase by phase, which meant we didn’t have to make all the decisions at the same time. This minimised the stress and his guidance and ideas have enhanced the style of our house.
Living quite a distance from our build, it was important we could trust Lucas and his team. We met on site every two to three weeks where we discussed the progress of the build and what was to come next. No changes were a bother and Lucas had such patience when at times we were in a longer process of deliberation.
All the work was done to a very high standard with no corners cut. We could not fault the workmanship.
The house was built in seven months and within the budget. The only delays were due to rain in the beginning.
Lucas has been building in the area for many years and suggested all the people and places we needed to consult for the fittings and finishings of the build. He also organised for us to visit some of his completed builds and speak to the clients.
Harlor building is a well deserved multi award winner and for good reason. The finish on our house at handover was impeccable. There was no stress regarding any faults or slight defects as Lucas gave us plenty of time to note anything that needed a slight adjustment, and then dealt with these swiftly.
Everyone who has come to the house has commented on the fine workmanship of the build. The house is a credit to Lucas and his team. Building a house was a once in a lifetime event for us and Harlor Building has made our dream come true. Thank you.

We were lucky enough to have had our new home built by the team at Harlor Building. We are really impressed with it. From the initial quoting consultations, to the construction process, it was all so professional. The project planning was seamless, and was timed to a tee, with all of the selected trades turning up for their roles when they were supposed to. The completion of the build was done on time as quoted. The quality of the workmanship from the Harlor Building team, as well as from the employed trade teams was excellent. We were always kept in the loop with the progress of how the build was going. If we ever had to get in contact with Lucas, we could give him a call or email, and if he couldn't answer straight away, then he would get back to us as soon as he could after this. We really apprecited the flexibility that came with using a local builder too, and we didn't have to make all of our design choices at the start. We were instead able to make these at various stages, which meant that the finished product was well coordinated. The quality of the structure and fittings is of a very high standard, and we have confidence that this house will serve us well for many years to come. Thanks Harlor Building

In 2014, we undertook a huge renovation and extension and chose Lucas to be our builder due to his professionalism, attitude and commitment towards our project. Lucas is extremely approachable and is passionate about every aspect of his work and the work of his trades people. The team at Harlor building made our experience an exciting and fulfilling process, keeping us involved at all times. Five years on and it’s still like brand new, a testament to the quality of the workmanship. Thank you Lucas and Louise for your commitment in helping us to achieve our beautiful home at Tapitallee. It is a credit to you both.
Recently Lucas and the staff of Harlor Building completed a Bedroom extention and a Garden Studio for us. We are extremely happy with the finished building and have found the process, from our first meeting with Lucas untill the final clean up, a completely strees free experience.
Not only was the workmanship first class but every effort was made to explain things, consult and inform us at each stage of the build.
All the subcontracted tradesmen turned up when they were meant to, there were no delays and they were all good tradesmen as well.
The men cleaned up after themselves and made every effort not to damage the garden as they worked.
Lucas,Travis and Brett are not only good tradesmen but are lovely human beings who are warm ,friendly, hardworking and honest. We were really impressed with
them on every level.
This may sound to good to be true but I will be recommending this Builder for many years to all my friends and to anyone looking for great quality service at a very reasonable price.
