On 5 November, we received the keys to our new Lockwood home which was built by Murray Timperley and Aaron Simpson of Lifestyle Developments Northland Ltd. We were absolutely delighted with the finished product. From the very beginning we were afforded with as much time as we required with the builders who gently guided us towards creating the perfect home from the drawing board to reality. At all times Murray’s attention to detail was second to none. He forestalled us from making errors and made well considered suggestions. He was always patient and diplomatic and therefore any dealings with the Far North District Council and neighbouring properties were pleasant and without problems. Both Murray and Aaron are skilled and experienced craftsmen. If we could find a section that we liked more than the one we have, without a doubt we would want Murray and Aaron to build us another home. We have recommended them to other people with complete confidence. – Raymond and Rozlyn Walsh

The builders at Lifestyle Developments Northland have been superb in terms of doing what they said, when they said, and also fixing problems that arose unexpectedly. This was all accomplished in an efficient professional manner. We had total confidence in their ability which made their building experience very pleasant. Our house is magnificent; north facing nestled in native trees with a sweeping vista of water. Leaving it to come back to work in Auckland is the only problem. You should be very proud of the people representing you in Northland. – Paul and Virginia Vlug
