We first met Guy in early 2013 at a consultation for a proposed development of our 1950’s house in Glenelg North.
We had done very little to the property for 20 years and it was run down to say the least. We were hesitant to even have people inside due to its condition.
Guy made us feel at complete easy when viewing the property only seeing its potential not downfalls. We immediately had a good feeling about Guy and the company he represented, he was positive, professional and very supportive of our financial position and we had no hesitation in moving forward with Guy leading his team.
Guy’s industry knowledge, attention to detail and advice regarding design, fittings and re-sale potential were invaluable with the result being a beautiful house that we are incredibly proud to own.
Throughout the build our whole family became very close to Guy and by the end we classed Guy as a family friend.
We kept in regular contact with Guy over the next few years and in 2017 decided to demolish a property we owned in Brighton to build 2 2-storey houses. The existing house was at the end of a cul-de-sac and was a very irregular shaped block.
Guy spent a great deal of his own time helping us with this project in the initial stages – all unpaid. We decided to take Guy’s advice and moved ahead once again with Guy and the company he represented to develop the property.
As the property had to be built on one neighboring boundary due to the irregular sized blocks the development was classed as Category 2 and had to go to public consultation. This triggered opposition from 3 neighbors that continued for 18 months.
During this time there was multiple re-designs, Council meetings during and after hours and a great deal of animosity from the neighbors – it was a very stressful and difficult time.
Guy was our savior during this time – he continually grounded us and kept the project moving. There were many setbacks and many times we were going to give in and just build a single property, but Guy kept motivating us to keep true to our original plan. This was all done by Guy with no payment and his own huge workload.
We can honestly say that if it had not been for Guy we would have thrown in the towel – instead we have now been granted approval for the 2 properties and with a clever design we are looking forward to building over the next 12 months.
As an indication of Guy’s professionalism and generosity he came to our house last night to do a final run through of the plans before going to working drawings and what should have been a 2 hour meeting commencing at 5pm went for 5 hours finishing at 11pm, and it was Guy who kept persisting that we review every item to ensure the properties were perfect. This is after Guy has worked all day.
We cannot speak highly enough about Guy Henderson, I think that the greatest accolade about Guy is that we treat him as a friend, and we trust him completely.
Our friendship has been formed by mutual respect and after the recent highs and lows encountered throughout the Brighton project, we know that it will last a very long time.

"Guy Henderson from Rossdale Homes helped us with the design, planning and costing of our project. We found him to be knowledgeable and very easy to deal with. We would recommend him to anyone looking to build with Rossdale Homes."
"Our new Home has met and surpassed expectations, thanks for the painless and on time (to the exact day) building process. It was nice to find that many extras we chose were actually included; and that it was no problem to modify even the smallest detail of the home to suit our individual needs.
Most of surrounding neighbors were stung buy substantial hidden costs from their builders for excess soil removal, extra site works etc, and although my site was not immune to these problems I was not charged a cent more that I was quoted.
If we build in the future the choice will be easy..."

"Our building experience has bee a big learning curve. Our experience with Rossdale Homes, Absolutely Great. We especially enjoyed designing our own features and put everything where we wanted it to be.
Our Supervisor was open to talk to and approachable, and followed up on items that needed fixing up.
From a sales point of view, Guy, you worked through all our ideas and plan changes, the result, we ended up with a design that we love. Your patience and commitment to our project, during the process, was fantastic. We would recommend you and Rossdale Homes to our friends."
