“Nathan built our home ‘Spice’ on Oak Beach FNQ to a Chris van Dyke design. This was a uniquely challenging build. Virtually every surface, every finish was bespoke and unconventional. Whether it be the aged, recycled ironbark beams and columns from an old warehouse, the adobe hand-rendered walls, the six pairs of heavy Rajasthani temple doors, the vintage brass ships’ lanterns, the recycled Burmese teak floorboards, polished concrete benchtops, hand-laid stone walls – they all presented their unique obstacles. A conventional builder would have baulked at this challenge whereas Nathan relished the prospect of working with natural materials. Unsurprisingly, for such a build, complications did arise from time to time. And this is where Nathan stands apart from most in his field. His attitude to troubleshooting is this: identify the problem, thoroughly research the available options, solve it today and with a minimum of fuss and budget stress. No owner could ask for more than this. And this proved critical to the success of the build for us. We watched this build from afar, back in Sydney. With Nathan we had no need for a project manager – he was that invested in the project. Not a day would pass without constant phone calls and email updates on progress, discussions regarding superior finishes and features, problem-solving etc. This is our fourth building project and we have never experienced this degree of positive interaction with the builder. As the build progressed, it quickly became apparent to us that the quality of the build was exceptional. Yet, we still held concern that our palette of finishes may completely miss the harmonious look we were seeking. Again, we relied on Nathan’s guidance here. In addition to his very apparent building abilities, he has a discerning eye for design and aesthetics. Many decisions were made after consultation with Nathan to alter the course with respect to design and finishes. Regarding the quality of finishes...Spice presents as a home of hand crafted finishes. One might assume that, when working with distressed timbers and stone, a builder could get away with inferior workmanship since the flaws would blend into the rustic look. Nothing could be further from the truth. It takes exceptional care and skill to blend together unconventional building materials with the necessary conventional materials in such a way as to present a home created by skilled artisans from another era. The end result is truly special. It has surpassed all our expectations and dreams and the fact that it has been recognized for the quality of its build by the Master Builders ‘Awards is an added testimony to Nathan and his amazing team. Finally, and on a personal note, it’s worth noting that Nathan is one of those very rare people – someone utterly driven to achieving the very best of outcomes for those around him, including his clients, his crew etc, yet also just a thoroughly decent bloke. In the year we collaborated on this project, and despite some epic challenges, my respect for his sense of integrity and ethics did not waiver once. I would have utterly no hesitation in recommending Nathan to any prospective homebuilder”.

From our very first meeting on site with Patrick and Alfina (Tropical Trend Homes), we have been impressed with Patrick’s passion & knowledge of building in the Tropics. Patrick & Alfina asked all the right questions at our initial meetings with them and Patrick came up with 3 different designs for us to consider, unique to our land and it's odd shape. Once we decided on a design, the design evolved throughout the building phase. We were impressed that the house design was not finalised at the start of the project, like most builders, but was ongoing. Patrick suggested things throughout the build to help make our new home perfect for us and the way we like to live. Having built two houses with other reputable Builders down south, our experience with Tropical Trends was unique and never experienced before. Patrick and Alfina's professional and friendly approach made building our house an absolute pleasure, nothing was too much trouble and Alfina's help with picking all the million and one things you need to decide on whilst building was invaluable, from the paint colour to the tiles and tap fittings. We would have been lost without her to guide us through. The result of all that passion & hard work is our stunning home that has been the recipient of a HIA award for winner of house for our price category(2014). Our home was finished on budget and before time, without any hitches what so ever, any minor things that arose during the build were dealt with quickly and efficiently. Our home is amazing, we absolutely love it, it has been so well designed that we still say everyday that we love our house, we have only ever used our air conditioning a few times as we have fantastic breezes that flow through the house all year, we never close any of the windows or doors which makes the house feel even more open and airy, which is exactly what we wanted. Patrick & Alfina's customer service, even well after our home was finished is absolutely and astonishingly rare these days, (we still annoy them to find services and suppliers) as we know that they use only the best. They always have time for us and our queries and questions and we never feel as though they don't have time to help, even though they are always busy with new clients, we still feel loved and valued. The first thing people usually say when they walk in the front door is WOW this is so amazing and beautiful, it's so you. If we were to build again, our first and only call would be Tropical Trend Homes, without any hesitation, in fact we continually tell them that when we win lotto we will give Patrick free reign to design and build us another beautiful home this time with no budget (which would be lots of fun for all, we're sure). We would recommend Tropical Trend Homes to anyone and everyone as we have been so impressed with our experience. Billy and Rach Kewarra Beach Cairns North Queensland.
