J2 Build South Coast 140 O'Keeffes Lane, Jaspers Brush  •  0404 077 004  •  jacques@j2build.com.au

Rosebery House

 

Clients- A family of four, parents both directors of leading communications businesses in the food/wine/travel sector. Strong sense of relaxed style looking for entertainer with all the trimmings.

 

Job- New build of free flowing large single story architect designed hybrid house- brick and timber. Design took visual clues from surrounding architectural vernacular of saw tooth roofs and brick bungalows.

 

We woke to the sunny faces of Jacques and/or Joe and their team, every weekday morning for almost 18 months as we built our home from scratch. The J2 team were great, we trusted them to look after our best interests and that’s the highest praise an owner can give their builder. They were straight up and honest, they had a really great team of their own staff and good subbies, they kept a pretty complicated job on track and (almost) on budget. Their attention to detail was tops, their flexibility admirable and we are suitably thrilled with the result. That the home won the J2 team an MBA Award is testament to their efforts and expertise.

Dulwich Hill house

 

Clients- Young family of four. Parents both lawyers in love with the Dulwich Hill area but looking to create a spacious contemporary home in streetscape filled with workers cottages and victorian terraces.

 

Job- On a double block the existing terrace was rennovated to accommodate the bedrooms whilst a large 2 story contemporary addition was seamlessly added to the rear of the property. To create garaging and guest accommodation a contemporary studio was added to the front of the property connecting with large decks.

 

Over the 6 jobs that I have worked with J2 on the quality of their workmanship has been excellent. Ontime and within budget constraints I have been happy to reuse them and recommend them to architectural colleagues.   – Edward Davis, Davis Architects

Paddington house

 

Clients- A successful banker and his young family were looking to create a sanctuary behind a walled garden on the southern side of Paddington. Needing plenty of space for entertaining and for their cars the property combined two adjacent Georgian terraces.

 

Job- The redesign of the property by Ara Design Studios reorientated the entrance to the beautiful northern facing garden. The kitchen and living areas were all transformed with stunning finishes and the bedroom areas became generous luxury suites.

 

Elizabeth Bay Apartment

 

Clients- A retired couple in their 60’s who live between Paris, Sydney and the NSW South Coast were looking to transform their dated Elizabeth Bay bolt hole to make the most of the stunning views.

 

Job- The apartment was gutted and the internal configuration remade with a clever design by architect Edward Davis of Davis Architects. The two bedroom apartment now has a new kitchen and bathroom and an expansive living area open to the view that belies the small scale of the floorplan.

 

J2 Build did a wonderful job in transforming our poky apartment into a spacious, light and beautifully finished property. They were respectful and courteous with our neighbours and we are already discussing plans for them to renovate our country property.

Mosman Apartment

 

Clients- A professional couple with grown children were looking to create a light spacious and luxurious apartment within a federation mansion in Mosman. Clean lines and modern finishes were sought to reflect their contemporary outlook.

 

Job- The federation apartment was modernised with a new kitchen and reconfigured internal layout. New bathrooms, bedrooms and office were rennovated. Windows and doors were replaced and a North East terrace was transformed with hard landscaping. 

 

Our  experience with J2 Building we found to be one of an exceptionally high standard. Joe,  Jacques and their team were a pleasure to work with, extremely

professional at all times, showing dependability, initiative, & confidence we found nothing was too much trouble.
 

We would also like to note how

knowledgeable and up to date they were with new products and design.

 

We have no reservations at all in endorsing this excellent team and

definitely would consider using their services on any future endevours.
