I just wanted to thank you so much for going above and beyond. My experience started by me rocking up to the Te rapa office and Jason the owner was out of the office so I went and filled in half an hour and came back I asked about a 10.2 by 6 meter garage for my property I met Jason at home. We did a quick measure up and he said at the time that it would be a tight fit but would try and make it work. Once we committed he really did go above and beyond even down to negotiating with our neighbor who was against the garage being built on the boundary I don’t know how he managed it but he was able to get our neighbors consent. We now have a fantastic shed and even a toilet ( I did move the goalposts a couple of times!) So I want to thank
everyone at IDEAL BUILDINGS for their efforts and to say it was a great experience.
